We have been on 5 Disney and 1 horrible Carnival cruise (1995). If it was up to me, we would only cruise DCL, but my extended family wants to try something different. It's taken a LOT of convincing, but they've finally gotten me to agree to look into Royal Caribbean. So, anyway we got a FL resident rate on our last 3-night DCL cruise and only paid $1100 for 3 of us in a cat. 4D. People keep telling me RCI is cheaper, but I can't find anything that even comes close to that price. Not to mention that there are no 3-night cruises on newer ships. I want something at least as nice as the Disney Dream. I know everything (well almost ) about DCL and how to get a good deal, but I can't figure out how people are getting better rates on RCI. I would love for my extended family to cruise with us again, but I won't do it on an old ship for more money. Flying would raise the price considerably, so ideally I would like to depart from Port Canaveral. Fort Lauderdale and Miami would be other options, but not as convenient. Can anyone give me some tips on finding a good price on a nice ship? Or am I out of luck with my requirements?
