While we have yet to experience this, it is definitely something you can do with your little ones. Just a few years ago, Disney began bring the Disney Magic cruise ship to the west coast for summer cruises from LA to Mexico. Pricing begins at $1599 per adult double occupancy. Children under 3 are $189, 3-12 start at $999 and 13 and up begin at $1199.

There is definitely a premium paid for the Disney cruises, but with that premium you get the “Disney” experience. Entertaining the children is the priority on these ships. Children are divided into the following groups:

  • Flounder’s Reef (Infants 12 weeks-3 yrs)
  • Oceaneer’s Club (Kids 3-7)
  • Oceaneer’s Lab (Kids 8-12)
  • Teen Activities (Teens 13-17)

The chidren are kept entertained for hours. Flounder’s Reef Nursery will even watch the little ones all day while the adults and big kids are out experiencing shore excursions. This is group babysitting and requires an hourly fee, but by all accounts, it is worthwhile.

The 2008 dates for the 7 night voyages are:
