Here are our tried-and-true cruise traveling tips:

“Any travel delay can sink your plans, so don’t let the ship sail without you. Plan to fly (or drive) in the day/night before you sail to have a stress-free, early start to your vacation. There are many hotels near the airport that offer shuttle service, and good deals can be had by shopping on https://www.priceline.com or the hotel websites in the weeks before you cruise. In the morning, you can take the hotel’s shuttle back to the airport and catch Disney’s ground transfer to the port. Or give yourself a full day in port—many hotels offer shuttles (free or low cost) to the cruise terminal.”

“Be certain to call your credit card companies to let them know you will be leaving the country before you depart for your Disney cruise vacation, even if it’s only the three-night cruise to the Bahamas! We have traveled out of the country many times before and have always called prior to leaving, but for some reason we failed to call when we took our cruise to the Bahamas. We tried to use our Disney Visa credit card to pay for some pictures in Nassau and were denied, but we thought it was a connection problem. On the last day of our cruise we went to use our Rewards card and it, too, was denied. We tried calling Chase but they were closed (apparently they aren’t staffed on Sundays). We then tried using our Disney credit card—that was denied as well. We ended up using another card but it was annoying to know that we not only didn’t get to use the points we’d accumulated but that we weren’t going to get any points for what we’d just spent! If someone was really relying on using either points or a certain credit card, it could be more than just annoying—it could really cause problems.”

Magical Memory

“My son Alexander is currently 12 years old and I’ve been fortunate to take him on a total of 11 cruises, meaning I can (and often do) chart his growth through our cruise photos. His first cruise was a 4-night Bahamas itinerary and he was just an infant, but his second cruise—a two-week repositioning itinerary—marked the first time he ever walked on his own (we were actually going through the Panama Canal at the time). He’s grown up to use the Oceaneer Club and now the Oceaneer Lab, going on itineraries in the Caribbean and Europe. He’s sailed on all four ships in the fleet, and he’s learned to love new foods through the cruise eateries, too! In many ways, I feel like he’s grown up on the Disney cruise ships, traveling, trying new things, and spending quality time together. And each time I’d take him on a cruise, he’d reach a new milestone. I look forward to my future cruises with him!”
