Description

The innovative Disney Cruise Line attracts hundreds of thousands of Disney and cruising fans to its Bahamian, Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Alaskan cruises. Disney's unique facilities and programs, along with its hallmark, first-class customer service, mean full ships and happy cruisers. And like visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, cruisers have an almost obsessive need to  know before they go." Until PassPorter arrived, no dedicated guidebook had existed for the Disney Cruise Line (or any other cruise line, for that matter) only a few pages here and there in Walt Disney World guidebooks and general cruise guides. That all changed in 2003 when PassPorter Travel Press introduced PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line and Its Ports of Call. Thanks to a very warm welcome from the cruising community, the guidebook is now in its 11th edition and going strong (November 2012, $19.95, PassPorter Travel Press, ISBN: 978-1-58771-120-6).Authors Dave and Jennifer Marx, who are also authors of the best-selling, award-winning PassPorter's Walt Disney World, originally intended to produce a short supplement for Disney World-bound readers going on a Disney cruise. As they got deeper into the project the manuscript grew and grew so many useful tips and details were discovered, and readers continued to ask questions they wanted answered in the book. The 11th edition of the guidebook offers an unprecedented level of detail in a travel guidebook, including in-depth coverage of the line's brand-new cruise ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, its presence in the Mediterranean and Alaska, and its 2013 Home Ports: Port Canaveral, Vancouver, Miami, Galveston, and Barcelona. No detail is too small from dining room menus to detailed deck plans, daily activities to shore excursions and extensive port-of-call coverage it's all included. The in-depth information is accompanied by over 100 original photographs and more than 20 maps, chart, and worksheets. The guide has everything first-time and veteran cruisers need to know about booking and enjoying a cruise with Mickey... and maybe a little extra, too!PassPorter's Disney Cruise Line and Its Ports of Call 10th Edition comes in two formats: paperback ($19.95, ISBN: 978-1-58771-120-6) and deluxe ($47.95, ISBN: 978-1-58771-121-3). The deluxe edition is looseleaf, with a deluxe padded ring binder and 14 innovative organizer pockets, like those in PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook. The pockets allow readers to write their vacation itineraries on the front of each pocket before they go, store their cruise documents, birth certificates, and passports to have on hand when they arrive, keep maps, brochures, passes, and receipts inside the pocket while they're there, and record their memories and expenses on the back to review when they return home! Printed front-and-back with fill-in-the-blank sections for itineraries, To-Do lists, notes, expenses, meals, photos taken, and cherished memories, PassPockets make organized travel a snap!Cruisers can design magical cruise vacations with this take-along travel guide and planner for the Disney Cruise Line. All aspects of the Disney Cruise Line are described in deep detail, complete with maps, diagrams, charts, and photos. Comprehensive information for planning, traveling, stateroom selection, dining, playing, and shore excursion selection/port of call touring is included, along with an entire section devoted to making magic onboard.
