    Anything included/not included with a Disney Cruise that might be different from other cruise lines? Also, we will be on the Dream, any tips for parents and a 15 year old "must do" family activities? Thanks in advance!

    Ahoy, Memory!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited for you and your family's upcoming Disney Cruise aboard the Disney Dream! All four vessels are extraordinary, but I think the Disney Dream is my favorite ship! Before you know it, you'll be setting sail to paradise with Captain Mickey leading the way!

    So much is included in the basic price of your Disney Cruise! Let's talk about food first. You will enjoy meals, 24/7 Room Service, snacks, soft drinks (served during meals in the restaurants and at the Beverage Station) and soft serve ice cream, all included in the cost of your cruise. Yum! Along with food, you can also look forward to entertainment and Disney Character Meet and Greets. My favorite part about setting sail aboard Disney Cruise Line is the stop (on certain itineraries) to Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. Some things that are not included and an additional price are alcoholic beverages, Port Adventures, dining in the adult-only restaurants and services at Senses Spa and Salon.

    My top two "must do" activities for your family are Pirate Night and snorkeling on Castaway Cay! Pirate Night is the most fun night on the high seas! The Snorkeling Lagoon off Castaway Family Beach is perfect whether you've never snorkeled before or are an experienced snorkeler! I highly recommend flipping your fins and exploring all the wonders under the sea!

    Memory, if you have any other questions before your adventure to paradise, please stop back and visit us again! We love hEARing from you!
