We have cruised once with DCL on August Repo. We have another scheduled in August. We cruised 10 years ago with Holland America to Alaska. We want to cruise Spring Break 2007...March 31 or April 1. Here is the breakdown for an equivalent room (balcony) on an equivalent cruise (Eastern Caribbean for 2A2C). This is considering price only... NCL-Norwegian Jewel $4742 Princess-Carribean Princess $4901 Carnival-Carnival Glory $4022 Royal Caribbean-Mariner of the Seas $5175 DCL-Magic $9562...........yikes! Am I missing something? We loved our Disney Cruise, but we aren't big fans of the characters and our kids didn't really like the kid's clubs. We loved the ship and the entertainment and just cruising in general. Our kids are boys 13 and 9 as of 2007. I think they would like the activities on the RCCL boat but I don't like the room configurations (boys have to share a sofa bed). I like the cost and rooms on Carnival but not as many activities. We know that Disney does everything well and I've rarely been disappointed with anything Disney. Will I be disappointed with these other ships? Ideas? Thoughts?
