    We have always done a 7 night cruise, but are doing a 5 night. On the 5 night is there still a formal and semi-formal night? What differences are there between them meaning are some things omitted on the 5 night? Thank you.

    Hi there, Dina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad that you stopped by with your question!  As a previous Disney Cruise Line Guest and Castaway Club Member, you are already aware of all the fun and adventure that awaits you onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship!  They are so much fun, aren’t they?!?  With nonstop entertainment and plenty to do when you reach a port of call, there is just not much better than a Disney Cruise Line vacation!!

    Lucky for you, with a slightly shorter itinerary, you won’t have to sacrifice the fun and top notch service you are used to with your other sailings!  You might miss those extra two nights of someone pulling back your sheets at night and cooking a delicious three-course meal, but aside from that, much remains the same!  You will still have incredible nightly entertainment and get to experience a variety of menus at each of the restaurants in your dining rotation!

    On a 5-night sailing you will have a dress up night, a pirate night and three cruise casual nights.  Dress up night attire would consist of a nice dress for women and button-down shirts for men.  So, you still get the fun and excitement with a themed night and slightly dressy night just as before! Hopefully this helps you as you begin your packing list and preparations for your upcoming sailing! 

    As you continue planning please feel free to come back with any additional questions you have!  Don't worry, it will be just as wonderful as your previous cruises! Most importantly, don't forget to book your next one while onboard!

    Happy Sailing!
