    Disney "cruise" ad from 1988

    I found some old Eyes & Ears (the "News Paper" published by Disney to its Cast Members) from June 30, 1988.

    In te back was this ad from when Disney got their feet wet in the cruise line industry. Disney put themselfs on Premier Cruise lines to see if people would respond. Disney did not like the way PCL kept tight reigns on the can's and can'ts. By the time the Disney/PCL contract expired, Disney had decided they wanted their own cruise line so they could do things their own way.

    this is a really good find, In looking at the Cuise details it seams like a good deal, Adjust for inflation in todays dollers it would be $83.00 per person, per day.

    On Nov 26, 2006 you can take a 4 day Disney cruise out of Port Canaveral for $539.00 per person

    On Mondy Nov 27, 2006 you can take a 4 day RCI cruise out of Miami,on RCI'S Majesty of the Seas for $209.00 per person.

    Disneys cruise line has some of the highest rates in the industry for a mass-market cruise line. The overall price of a cruise from 1988 to 2006 is much lower today than 20 years ago and a rate of $50.00 pp- per day was a great deal for the time.

    I just posted the cost of the different cruises just to show what it cost today. The only Cruise Line I have been on is RCI, and in no means am I knocking Disney Cruise line. from everything I have seen and read almost everyone who has been on DCL loves it. As for there high price if they were not selling out almost every cruise they would not be able to get the high price.

    Those cruises were absolutely horrible. It was a miserable experience for my family when we went.
