    Ahoy again! We are taking the 5 Day cruise 9/30/2019 NYC to Canada, but I’m not finding much info? What are the “must do” shore excursions for this kind of trip? What are your “insider tips” to make the most out of our trip? We are “first timers”.

    Hi Robert!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited for you to embark on your first Disney Cruise next September! I'm thrilled that you've started thinking about all the fun that's waiting for you on each deck of the ship. It's never too early to begin planning for your adventures at sea.

    Your Halloween on the High Seas Cruise is going to be so spooktacular! I'm honored to share some tips for making this inaugural cruise unforgettable! Definitely download the complimentary Disney Cruise Line Navigator app for your smartphone prior to setting sail. Once onboard, you'll have each day's activities right in the palm of your hand! Once your advance booking window opens (75 days prior to setting sail for first-time cruisers) and your cruise is paid in full, you'll be able to begin booking your Port Adventures and onboard activities. The booking window opens at midnight (eastern time); I recommend making a list of your top Port Adventures and onboard activities and have it ready when the clock strikes midnight!

    This will be such a beautiful time of year. Selecting a Port Adventure through Disney Cruise Line is my family's favorite way to see the beauty of each port of call. If you enjoy sightseeing and nature, I recommend taking a look at the St. Martins and The Bay of Fundy excursion in Saint John, New Brunswick. This is also offered as an adult-only Port Adventure.

    Robert, please don't hesitate to sail back and visit us again!
