Disney staycation cruises

Anyone had access to the pre-booking and know how much the new Staycation trips are going to be priced at?

Thank you @SwimBaby v helpful.
And.....wow at those prices!
Is it AI? I can check that online I think....

I went on Disney Magic around the Med 10 years ago and it was my joint best holiday.

Thank you! That's maybe a more reasonable price.
I suspect it's my idea of hell but the kid would love it and I'm sure I can get over myself for 4 days!
Are you signing up?

Join the Facebook group. Some of the people are a bit full on but there’s so much info on pricing people have paid booking today - also about things like how all adults need two Covid vaccines to go, pre-cruise testing etc.

No I’m sailing with a different company.
I don’t know how the restrictions will affect things but when I went it was so good. The adults only pool was like a lovely boutique hotel, the cabins are much bigger than normal sized cabins and we had a balcony. It really was lovely. There’s an Art Deco style cinema and the food was very good. The shows and entertainment were excellent.
It wasn’t what I was expecting at all, the standard of everything was very high.

Huh. Turns out DD is scared of boats and hates the idea.
At least it solves the conundrum.

Watching, dd is older but sn and loves Disney . Other dc seem surprisingly keen (though two prefer marella as ai !)

I’d love to go but none of the dates work for us. Really hoping there might be some extra October dates added.

We were tempted for some much-needed Disney Magic for us and the DC, but with prices as high as they are we figure it’d be better to save the money and put it towards a Florida trip next year instead.

I looked at the 2 night trip and thought the time on the boat was way too short to really be worth it.
Day 1: Not allowed on boat until 5.30pm.
Day 2: On boat.
Day 3: You have to be off the boat by 7.30am!
So basically about 2 grand for one evening, (which would basically be giving the kids dinner and then getting them to bed), and one day on the boat. I just didn't feel it was worth it.

I think the two night cruises are too short, three nights seem a lot longer. I’ve booked a five night British Isles cruise with Royal Caribbean and am really looking forward to it.

I cannot believe the prices for such a short trip even with the disney premium. As much as I like Liverpool it does not really compare in the sunshine stakes to Florida.🌴

I’d be more tempted by the Royal Caribbean ones unless your child is properly Disney mad.
Twosharks · 08/05/2021 12:15
@SwimBaby did you get a good deal on your Royal Caribbean one? I really am tempted. We are in Scotland though so it’s a trek for us, we’d be handier hopping on at Greenock!

Hi I was happy with the price, we are a family of four adults and I booked 2 mid ship high, deck balcony cabins for just under 3k.

I think a few do start there. I recommend Iglu cruise website, type in British Isles cruises and all the options come up.
