Need some tips/advice. Thinking about doing a cruise for spring break. Obviously, it’s a busy time of year and prices are at a premium. We live in NC and it would be myself, DW and DS10 and DS6. We could do a 4-night Disney cruise for about $5600 in an oceanview room or a 7-night Disney cruise for about $7600. Both are out of Port Canaveral. Miami isn’t much cheaper and would require a flight or a much longer drive, so we will definitely go out of Port Canaveral if we go.
I know you can’t really compare them, but I found a Carnival cruise out of Charleston, SC (only 5 hour drive versus 8-9) for 6 nights for about $3300.
I’ve never been on a cruise and I would prefer to spend the extra money and do Disney, but my wife thinks the difference is too big. I’ve never done a cruise, but am worried that there won’t be as much to do for my kids on the Carnival cruise, whereas the Disney will be perfect for them.
Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?
