Factors That Affect the Price of a Disney Cruise
There are several factors that affect the price of a Disney Cruise. Here are just some of the things that affect the cost of your cruise.
The first factor is the time of year you will sail – prices are typically higher during peak vacation times, such as summer and winter break.
The second factor is the length of the cruise. A longer cruise, of course, costs more than a shorter cruise. In some cases, longer cruises may be cheaper per day than shorter ones, but longer cruises do include more ports of call, which can increase the cost of the trip due to port fees.
The third factor is the destination. Disney Cruises go to destinations such as the Caribbean, Alaska, and Europe, and each destination comes with a different price.
Fourth, the type of room you book matters. Rooms with balconies or special features like concierge service usually cost more than standard rooms. The average costs vary, but here’s an example range for a 3-night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral in July 2023, with two people in one stateroom:
- an Inside room costs at least $2,837 ($472.83 per person per night)
- an Oceanview room costs at least $2987 ($497.83 per person per night)
- a Verandah room costs at least $3149 ($524.83 per person per night)
- a concierge room costs at least $4673 ($778.83 per person per night)
Fifth, you’ll be charged based on who is in the room. The first two people in the room always pay the adult rate, regardless of age (and solo travelers must pay a supplement to cover the “missing” second person). Additional passengers in the same room pay different amounts based on their age group. For example, here are the charges for each passenger in an oceanview stateroom on a 3-Night Bahamas Cruise in May 2024:
- First two adults: $1,329 each
- 15-year-old: $759
- 7-year-old: $728
- 2-year-old: $401
Another factor in the price is when you book. Like airline tickets, stateroom prices can change over time based on demand. Even if the price of a room remains steady, cheaper room categories may be booked earlier (leaving only more expensive options to be booked). Book early for the best shot at a low price per night.
