    Ahoy ladies, We are leaving on the December 31st cruise with our 8 year old daughter. This will be our 2nd time sailing but I can't remember if we need to bring beach towels for use on either the ship or Castaway Cay? Also, do we know what shows are?

    Hi Regina!

    Oh my goodness, you set sail to paradise TOMORROW! Squee! I'm so excited for you and your family's upcoming vacation! Celebrating New Year's Eve aboard a Disney Cruise ship is a dream of mine! I'm hoping my family and I will be ringing in the year 2020 with Captain Mickey and his friends!

    You will be sailing to one of my favorite places on Earth: Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! I'm happy to share that you do not need to pack beach towels from home to use for splashtacular fun onboard or on Castaway Cay. There will be complimentary towels provided for you to grab and use on the pool deck throughout your cruise. When the ship docks at Castaway Cay, you'll be able to pick up beach towels right as you walk off the ship to use on the island! It's so convenient and easy!

    Each evening you can look forward to amazing shows in the Walt Disney Theatre! I'm not sure which ship you'll be sailing on, but if you visit Disney Cruise Line's website, you'll find a list of the Live Shows & Entertainment for each ship! The evening's entertainment will be listed in your Personal Navigator newsletter as well as on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app.

    Regina, I'm sure you're packing up a storm at this very moment! I'm wishing you the most magical time ringing in the new year!
