    Boarding Merrytime Cruise on Dream in Nov! How does the schedule differ from regular 4-night cruise (shows, dinners, etc)? Still pirate night? Any advice on what hours we should book nursery care for our 2 year old? Unfortunately, we have the late dinner.

    Ahoy Leigh Anne –

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your cruise questions. From the sweet smell of gingerbread wafting from the life-sized gingerbread house to the Christmas tree that spans multiple decks, oh how I love those fun Very Merrytime Cruises with Disney Cruise Line! Your family is in for a wonderful holiday vacation that will inspire memories for years to come. The schedules will still include the same fabulous shows (Disney’s Believe, The Golden Mickeys, Villains Tonight!), Pirate Night, the Sail Away Deck Party and plenty of zany family fun activities.  Holiday sailings will also have a tree-lighting ceremony, special character visits (Santa and our beloved Disney characters dressed in holiday clothing), carolers, Deck the Deck Holiday parties and more. When booking your nursery hours make sure to include special alone time at Palo, Remy, or Senses Spa. My son could not tolerate the 1 ½ hour long meals so we planned nursery time during meals. There will be some limited availability to schedule once onboard if you need some flexibility. Leigh Anne, have fun planning your amazing vacation, and if you need help, you know where to find us!
