Advice - DCL vs Royal

Recommended Posts

 I have been wanting to go on a Disney cruise for 20 years. However, the money keeps stopping me as there are lots of great cruise lines for less. My girls are 11 and 8 now so I feel like I need to do it soon before they outgrow it. They are already starting to prefer Universal to Disney as the rides are cooler.  


We are heading to Orlando for Spring break (April 1 to 13) and plan to go to Universal one last time on our annual passes. So I started pricing out cruises as I am not spending 10 days at Universal. A 7 night Disney cruise is not going to happen...way too $$$$


So I was thinking of doing the 3 day and then maybe following it up with a 4 day on Royal to go to their private island. So get off one ship in the morning and then get on another that afternoon.  I really wanted to do the 4 day but it $2700 for the extra night and I didn't think it was worth it.


skip Disney cruise entirely and do a 7 day Eastern on Royal's Harmony of the Seas which looks amazing.


So just wondering if Disney is really worth it? I have been wanting to go on a Disney cruise for 20 years so I am so torn. Also has anyone done a back to back but on different cruise lines?  My husband is would prefer the 7 day Royal as its a little cheaper and doesn't feel like Disney is worth the price.  We have only sailed Carnival previously which was fine.
