What can your hotel/resort learn from the Disney Cruise line? Probably more than a few things, but here’s one: Nobody wants to get sick on their vacation.  Cruise lines are particularly careful about contagious diseases — nothing ruins a cruise like an outbreak.  It’s close quarters in many resorts and hotels as well — and many …

It is not surprising that Disney Cruise provides good services and facilities which beyond customers’ expectations. In addition, these two elements are important in a hospitality industry, which customers always expect from a resort or hotel.
Basically, Disney Cruise line emphasizes on the hygiene that prevent the contagious disease. It is important to keep the cleanliness especially most of the customers of Disney Cruise are families on vacation.
Thus, other hotel or resort can learn from Disney Cruise line by focusing on the good service as well as providing high technology facilities.

FINALLY A CRUISE WITH DRINKS INCLUDED! Haha! I think its totally worth it. People go on cruises and, from my experience, most of the passengers try to sneak on alcohol just because every drink is sold individually and not all-included. This will definitely benefit the cruise line itself and the passengers as it offers a one time payment.
Ingrid Hentschel's curator insight, September 15, 2014 4:15 PM

This would get my attention! It's great to see that cruise line's can cater to those who love to eat and drink a lot on board. Also saves us a lot of money knowing how expensive it can be!

There is no reason that this excursion should not be done, if the cruise ship company is true to it's statement that nothing will be left behind. These are virgin waters, and do not need a lot of trash dumped into them by indifferent tourists.

Michael Robla's comment, September 24, 2014 10:51 AM
cruises should be sailing in these areas. They will be great sightseeing cruises like no other experience. Cruises also are now so advanced and have hulls that can easily break through ice if necessary.
