I wish they’d sail from Charleston!!!


#11

My husband has always wanted to go to Hawaii, what better way to see it all, and enjoy Disney? I just showed him this and told him we need to save and he agreed! woo hoo, any idea what this price will be, I know expensive, but sometimes we have to splurgh.


#12

It sold out on friday. But rooms may come available again. Inside staterooms started at $1,800 per person.


#13

Now if they could only do a port at Lake Michigan, us Midwesterners would be taken care of also!!!:laugh:


#14

Oh my goodness a Disney cruise and Hawaii ( our next dream/wish destination) that sounds tailor made for some people…(like us-someday when we are done educating children!)


#15

Wow, I can understand why it sold out! That is not bad for a 14 day cruise!
