I think this is something that you ought to give a lot of thought to. Going to Orlando is great, going on a cruise is wonderful but to combine the two types of holiday is, in my opinion, not allowing yourself to enjoy to the full either holiday. The children will love Orlando and they will have a fantastic time on a cruise, if you pick the right ship, I just feel that the combination might be more difficult and less enjoyable than separate vacations. As I say this is purely my point of view. Hope it helps. ...Ida.

Sounds a great idea I would do Disney first then move onto the cruise which should be much more relaxing. There are Disney cruise ships which could give you both worlds at one time ?

I have to disagree with Ida on this one, as I have done many fly cruise hols. In fact most of our hols take this format. We always do the land based part first & then relax on the cruise last. I never work from a brochure so I can only pass on my method of doing things. Choose a resort (disney) in your case, choose a hotel from the many travel brochures, choose a cruise from the many options, go to an independent travel agent(s) such as the freephone number at the top of this page, let them do the work & get quotes & options from 2 or 3 of them. Why stick to the limited choices from any of the travel companies when you can make much wider choices of hotels & cruises. Regards Wilba.

I only said they should give it careful consideration, Bill. I am not totally against them doing it just to be aware of “Double Disney” . … Ida.

Thank you chaps for all your thoughts.Your comments have helped to clarify any potential problems i.e. would my parents cope well with the Disney dashing about that first week ? Perhaps not, maybe a trip best left for the 2nd & third generation on our own. A most helpful bit of brainstorming ! Thankyou all, Rachael Bagley.

There is currently a TV documentary on Channel 5 , showing the building of Regent Seven Seas Explorer. The first programme begins with chief executive Frank Del Rio outlining his vision for the luxury vessel and joins him in a personal quest to acquire 5 mi...
