    I saw the Travel channel show on the Magic and Wonder and now HAVE to go. We have toyed with the idea of a Disney cruise for years but have done Royal Caribbean because my husband grumbles every time we go to WDW and takes some of the magic away. He is convinced that all he will see on the cruise is screaming children and that "*&^!" mouse. After seeing the show I don't even care if he grumbles, I just want to go.

    Help!!

    Well it doesn't sound like your DH is a big Disney fan. I know a few people that have gone to DW and they just don't see what the big deal is. I guess they never found the magic! I don't think I would even try to convince them that a Disney Cruise is the way to go. However, if you are determined to convince DH that you must go on a Disney Cruise I would tell him the following:

    1. There really isn't a lot of screaming kids running around on board or even at dinner. A lot of the kids are off at the clubs, the kid's pool or the arcade. Plus there are adult places where you can avoid children altogether such as the adult pool, spa, Palo, the night clubs in the evening.

    2. You'd be lucky to run into Mickey Mouse. Yes he is in the lobby for picture taking and he is at the character brkfst, but other than that we never saw him. Even the decor on the ship has a Disney theme but it is very subdued.

    Hope that helps!

    That's what a Disney cruise will do for you. Since you have cruised before I sure I don't have to tell you to do the 7 day. It's so relaxing, It really does want to make you go back again, and
    again, and again.........................................

    Hubby and I did just our first cruise, Disney this past September, 7 day western carib.

    We didn't really have to worry about kids at all..you hardly see any. The adult only areas are wonderful.

    maybe if your hubby doesn't want to go, find a friend and the two of you go. Better to leave the grumpy people at home...lol.

    My DH is not the vacationing kind. He is a workaholic but did agree to do the 4 day Disney cruise after 5 nights at the BC last year. He was done with Disneyworld after about 5 minutes but the moment that we boarded the ship he relaxed. If you have been on other cruises you know how small the staterooms are. We got a cabin with a verandah. Well worth the extra money. That is what sold my husband, relaxing on the verandah with no crowds and a beer in hand looking out at the ocean. Oh yes and he could watch the football games right in our stateroom. Our 4 year old was in the Kids Club most of the time and I enjoy spending time alone so while he was watching the games I went right to the Spa. My husband liked the cruise so much that he told me to book another Disney cruise but this time he insisted on the 7 night and a category 3. We sail in Nov. 2004!!!The biggest seller for him was the size of the stateroom. Good Luck!

    two words:

    Surial Bath

    Go print the reports (Barb has one, Dave in the Frozen North another), give them to your husband and book away.....

    SS....im like your husband. i can think of alot of things to do with the money my wife wants to spend on a cruise, like pay bills:) we will be taking our first cruise next month. i tried to get out of it but she wore me down........ make some kind of deal with your hubby that if he goes you will do something for him. i told my wife i would go if she would let me hunt as much as i wanted to this deer season. she agreed and so im going on a cruise and im keeping my mouth shut about how much money she is spending and im going to have a good time even if i cant wear shorts to dinner:teeth:
