Disney Cruise Line: In The News

The gingerbread competition between the four ships is one of my favorites things during the MerryTime cruises! This year, the gorgeous house on the Disney Fantasy was voted the best by the readers of the Disney Parks Blog. And a well earned win it is, the house is beautiful!

This isn’t just another award for Disney Cruise Line – for the Cruise Critic’s Editors’ Picks are highly regarded in the community. This time, DCL brought home the top spot in Best for Families in the Ocean category for the fourth year in a row. There was also an award to her River Cruise cousin, with Adventures by Disney earning the Best for Families award in river cruising.

Here’s this week’s special offers. Most every week of the year, Disney Cruise Line releases special offers for Florida Residents and U.S. Military Personnel.  There are also frequently IGT/OGT/VGT rates available for all guests to book.  These offers are extremely limited in availability, and all come with certain restrictions, but the prices are amazing! You can book these online, on the phone, or with your travel agent. These are the current offers available this week:

Upcoming Entertainment

The following films are being shown aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships this month:

  • Captain Marvel
  • Dumbo 
  • Disneynature: Penguins
  • Avengers: Endgame
  • Aladdin 
  • Toy Story 4
