    We just booked Disney Wonder December 12-16 for the Very Merry Christmas Cruise. It is a 4 night, do we have Captains (formal night) on that crusie?

    Welcome aboard, Sara!

    Ah, the Disney Wonder. One of my favorite of Disney's four pixie-dusted cruise ships. I just adore the more intimate atmosphere on the Wonder and Magic, and know that especially during this Very Merrytime Cruise, you're in for all sorts of extra special fun and adventure! I can just smell the heavenly aroma of that larger than life gingerbread house in the atrium right now!

    The shorter cruises, like your four-night sailing, do not have Formal Night. However, they do have an Optional Dress-Up Night. So, if you're like my family, and want to enjoy a night dressed to the nines, go for it! Usually Mickey and his crew are out in their formal wear or Christmas attire that night, so it's a fun time to get photos with your favorite Disney friends. You'll see a wide range of dress that night since it's optional to dress up, but it is certainly appropriate to wear your dressiest attire that night if you so choose. When else do you get much opportunity to have the whole family dressed up for a night out? Since you're going before Christmas, you may even consider bringing your Christmas outfits to wear that night for a great family photo by the huge Christmas tree in the atrium. We've had a few Christmas photos there with us all dressed up and they're some of our favorites.

    Have fun as you plan this winter getaway, Sara, and please stop back with other questions as you continue to count down to the big sail date this December!
