Disney Unveils New Cruise Ship. Would You Spend $1,400 Per Person For A 4-Day Trip?

The new luxury liner will set sail on its maiden voyage on January 26. While it’s full of kid-friendly features (and even a few you will love), a cruise to the Bahamas will cost a family of four almost $6000. Do you think it’s worth it?

As winter stretches on, if you’re anything like me, HollyMoms, you’re dreaming about escaping the snow-filled streets and heading to a tropical paradise. Well, if your family are fans of Disney, soon you’ll be able to take them all to the Bahamas on the newest boat in the Disney fleet, the Disney Dream. This floating city has everything from gourmet restaurants and a spa to a watery roller coaster and you can be one of the first 4,000 passengers if you’re willing to spend $1,400 per person, when it makes it maiden voyage from Port Canaveral, FL., on January 26.

The 130,000-ton vessel, is the first new Disney boat in more than a decade. It carries the first-ever water coaster among it’s 14 decks! It’s actually a 765-foot-long waterslide, which has a four-deck drop and dips over the ship’s edge. So, it’s probably best to hold off on taking your kids on this 4-day cruise until they can swim. If your kiddos are still in need of a floatation device, then they might enjoy the 9-hole miniature golf course instead.

And it wouldn’t be worthy of the Disney name if some of the passengers didn’t include their famous characters – everyone from Tinker Bell to the loveable creatures from Monsters Inc. and Toy Story, will be there to delight your little ones.

I doubt parents will have much free time to indulge in the Senses Spa & Salon, since it’ll be a full time job just to keep an eye on your kids on this massive boat, but it’s there if you get a spare hour.

Check out the all the pictures of this new luxury liner and let us know if you’ll be calling your travel agent anytime soon.
