Universal Orlando takes on Disney by getting into cruise vacation business
Published: March 17, 2009 at 1:41 PM
Disney's long cornered the market for people wanting to combine a cruise with a theme park vacation. Even before launching its own Disney Cruise Line, Walt Disney World offered package deals where visitors would split time between Disney World and the Caribbean.
Now, Universal's in the game, with what it is calling the Way More Than a Cruise vacation package.
The land and sea vacation packages combine a three- or four-night stay at Universal Orlando Resort with a three- or four-night Bahamas cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Monarch of the Seas, or a seven-night Caribbean cruise aboard Freedom of the Seas. Way More Than a Cruise includes hotel and shipboard accommodations, multi-day passes to both Universal theme parks, Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, complimentary admission to select live entertainment venues at Universal’s CityWalk and ground transfers between airport, hotel, theme parks and the ship at Port Canaveral.
Thoughts? I'm turning to you on this one, 'cause I don't do boats unless I'm the one sailing them.
