    I will be boarding a British Isles cruise starting on September 6th. Please let me know the dress code while on board. Also, I would like to know the show start time for restaurant reservations.

    Hi Tomomi,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for sailing by with your question. I'm happy to assist you with your Disney Cruise Line vacation.

    I checked for you and your British Isles 7-Night cruise will include the following theme nights and suggested attire:

    • Sunday - Southampton - Cruise Casual dress
    • Monday - At Sea - optional Formal Night
    • Tuesday - Greenock - Cruise Casual - Mickey's Color Spin Dance Party
    • Wednesday - Liverpool - Cruise Casual
    • Thursday - Cork (Cobh) - Pirate Night (Pirate-themed attired encouraged!)
    • Friday - Portland, UK - Cruise Casual
    • Saturday - At Sea - optional Semi-Formal
    During the day, the dress code is casual. I usually pack shorts, casual pants, sundresses, and short-sleeved shirts. The weather on your cruise may be a little cool so pack a light jacket. If you plan to dine at one of the Adult-exclusive restaurants, keep in mind they have a dress code. Depending on the Port Adventures you choose, you may want to pack comfortable walking shoes. This packing list will help with your planning.

    If you are hoping to book reservations for one of the adult-exclusive restaurants, you may do so when your advanced booking window opens. The date your booking window opens depends on your Castaway Club membership status. If this is your first cruise you can book Port Adventures, onboard activities, and specialty dining 75 days before your cruise begins. To book, select the Already Booked tab on the website and navigate to Book / Manage Cruise Activities.

    You will have a wonderful time on your Disney vacation, Tomomi! Let us know is you have other questions; we are happy to help!

    Wishing you many magical moments,

A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney.
