I'm hoping for some good ol' Dis Board insight into whether a family of first time cruisers (DH, DD (3) and I) would be better off signing up for a 7 day cruise in the Eastern Caribbean (or Western?) on the Magic or a 4 day cruise on the Dream to the Bahamas in early December. I'm wondering about: the cost of a Land/Sea combo versus 7 day cruise the experience of Magic versus Dream (especially for first timers) the experience of Eastern Caribbean versus Bahamas in early December the current extensive renovations in Magic Kingdom for the fun factor for a Toddler Some other things about our situation: My DD and DH have never been to the Caribbean or Disney World, though I have been to both over a decade (or more) ago. DH and I are occasionally prone to motion sickness or at least a light nausea on boats and don't like cramped quarters. The only reason we're thinking about DCL is that we've heard so much about how great the cruises are for families, especially the Camp programs. We went to Disneyland last November and DD did great, but even the short lines strained her patience , and not sure how much more crowded Disneyworld might be early December (pre holiday) Thanks for your thoughts!
