Just started kicking around the idea of a cruise and I'm already overwhelmed. I'm thinking if things work out the way I've got it running through my boggled brain, we'd go on the Disney Wonder 3 night cruise on August 14. This is all very up in the air...just researching at this point, but I assume I should hurry up if we'd be going this August. I've got the video, which the kids and I will watch later today. There are 5 of us, so we will need a category 4 room (?). What are the sleeping arrangements like for 5 people? What's different about the different decks? Are any more preferable than others? Food is included, except for alcohol? I saw a picture of a place to get ice cream...extra cost? Is this 3 meals/day, or two?? What ARE the extra costs? Saw here on the DIS about some excursions, but what about ON the ship. Will we feel cheated doing a 3 day cruise? We've never cruised, and I'm cautious about going, but DH and the kids want to...3 days doesn't seem very long, but may be good for me for a first cruise. Are there discounts out there? BIG ones? I'm thinking of tagging this on to the end of a week at Portofino (Universal) and BWV. Is it very structured as far as dining and shows?? Do you get a choice of seating (read somewhere about 2 seatings/night for dinner??) Do you book shows in advance or just show up?? Is it HOT, rainy, hurricane-y in August?? Please feel free to answer questions I haven't asked too.
