My parents are thinking of using part of our inheritance to take the whole family (me, DH and our 3 kids plus sister, BIL and their two girls) on a cruise or vacation next summer. I have put a bee into Dad's bonnet about the Disney western cruise--I have two cat. 10 SPH rooms booked, but dad wants a verandah, and it would work if DS slept with them--we could get 3 cat. 5 or 6 rooms together, or possibly 7s. I mentioned this to sis last night and she mentioned it to BIL--he said "does it have to be a DISNEY cruise?" (should mention that the Disney gene skipped her). I had emphasized that it is a real family cruise since they are very religious, so she said today "I EMailed you a list of other family cruise lines" . She says "I just want to explore all of our options". Luckily I live closest to mom and dad so I have a little more influence--plus she does like the ports, and I loaned her my cruise video. I also told her I can take dad to the travel agent and nothing will get by me because I have my book (thanks Passporter) and my cruise board, so he should get the best deal--I may even try DU when he finally makes his decision. And the whole point is we aren't even paying so we should be quiet, right? Anyone know what other cruise lines are marketing themselves for families, and what arguments can I use against them?
