While our next Disney Cruise is paid in full, including gratuities for our wait staff and stateroom host/hostess, budgeting for on board fun is still in the works.
Because we booked this cruise, and paid the deposit, while sailing on our last cruise, we will walk on the ship with a $200 on board credit from Disney Cruise Line. Know that the amount of the on board credit varies depending on the length of your cruise—7 nights or longer $200, less than 7 nights $100.
Here’s our plan for the $200 on board credit:
- Champagne Brunch at Remy $50 per person—total $100. Yes, this glamorous, 2 hour, adult only experience is going to take half of our credit. It will be a memorable way to celebrate our anniversary.
- Pirate’s League First Mate Package $35. The Disney Fantasy is the only ship to feature a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique that also turns into a Pirate’s League on Pirate Night to transform guests into pirates on the high seas. The boy wants to give this a try, so he has a reservation for a 45 minute First Mate Package make-over. I’m hoping to get lots of pictures!
- Adult beverages on Castaway Cay $48 includes tip. A special treat for the husband and I are adult beverages while on the island. The husband prefers a bucket of beers and I order a red frothy drink, all of which get to delivered to our lounge chairs on the sand—which is also an experience.
There you have it, our plan for the $200 on board credit with $17 to spare. The extra money will go towards other ship board activities including port adventures, photos, and on board shopping. Oh, and there’s the deposit for our next cruise!
