    Has anyone tried the cakes that are available through "Onboard Gifts & Amenities"? I was looking at the Minnie Mouse or Nautical yellow cake. Are they baked fresh? Would you recommend any others?

    Welcome aboard, Robert!

    Celebrating a birthday at sea with Disney Cruise Line is the best! I've been fortunate enough to enjoy two of my birthdays onboard Disney's ships and they were by far the best ones yet!

    Disney Cruise Line offers all sorts of ways to make guests' birthdays even more special. I highly recommend checking out the stateroom decorations that are available through the Gifts and Amenities. My friends back home surprised me with the birthday stateroom decorations on one of our cruises. My family and I opened the door to our stateroom for the first time on embarkation day to be greeted with floor to ceiling birthday decor! What a fabulous way to kick off my birthday cruise!

    The specialty cakes available for pre-order through Gifts and Amenities are another fun way to add extra magic to a birthday sailing. They are super moist and delicious, and can be specialized by choosing different styles and flavors. I don't know if they were baked fresh onboard or brought on prior to my sailings, but I think they have been worth the extra cost to help me celebrate because they sure were delicious! These can be delivered to dinner one night, or to your stateroom if you'd prefer. Another option, if you're sailing on the Dream (with Vanellope's Sweets & Treats) or on the Fantasy, which features Sweet on You, is to choose cupcakes or another sweet treat there, which can be delivered to your table after dinner one night. Just purchase the treats you'd like in the shop earlier in the day and let them know which restaurant you'll be enjoying that night. Your servers can then call up when it's time for dessert and the Cast Members will bring your special treats down. 

    I hope those ideas help as you prepare to celebrate a birthday at sea, Robert! Have such fun, and please feel free to stop by again with any other questions before the big sail date. We're happy to help!
