The only thing we get for free on DCL that we don't on other lines is soda...and we really don't drink soda! I think it all depends on what you do and what services you use but for us what we spend on board a Disney cruise is just about the same as what we spend on Royal Caribbean cruise (actually more on Disney because we get the photo package).And when it comes to the price, yes Disney is more expensive up front, but listening to friends and reviewers about all of the add-ons, it makes me wonder if the price different isn't that great. One YT reviewer took 5 minutes to explain all of the the add-ons on the one cruise line's new exclusive island. Our friends took a cruise (don't remember which line) and they said every time they took a breath they were given, "Sorry that's extra" speech for drinks, meals, snacks, etc. so the difference in price may go away with all of the add-ons?
