    Hi there, Jordan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and CONGRATULATIONS on booking your first – and very memorable – Disney Cruise Line vacation!  What a fantastic and MAGICal adventure you will be on celebrating your marriage!  I am just so very excited for you and certainly hope you’ve noted your reservation that you will be celebrating your honeymoon onboard!

    One of the best things about a Disney Cruise Line vacation is that you can make it as busy or as relaxing as you want to!  You can fill every minute with activities, entertainment and excursions OR you can simply relax poolside and enjoy the beautiful views from the deck.  But some of the things that you can begin to look forward to is top-notch service, incredible Broadway-style shows and amazing dining experiences…oh, and you get to do this all alongside your favorite Characters!  Since you will be embarking on a Very Merrytime sailing, you will get to see the ship dressed up for the holidays and some additional festive activities will be added into the already fun and exciting daily events!

    Since you will be at sea for five-nights, you won't have a formal night but you can expect to have three cruise casual nights, one dress-up night (where you will see Guests in a variety of attire – but I like to think “Sunday Best”), and Pirate Night.  While completely optional, many Guests will opt to dress up as swashbuckling pirates for dinner and the Pirates IN the Caribbean deck party complete with an incredible at-sea firework display!  I would highly recommend making a reservation at Palo, an adult-exclusive restaurant onboard where you will experience a romantic and incredibly indulgent meal with the most spectacular views!  Oh…and the chocolate souffle is definitely something to look forward to because it is simply delicious!

    In these next few months (which I am sure will be extra busy for you), go ahead and explore the excursions offered through Port Adventures as well as some of the other onboard offerings such as beverage tastings and services at Senses Spa and Salon to see if anything looks of interest to you!  That way, when your onboard booking window opens 75-days ahead of embarkation you will be ready to book those experiences!

    You are going to have the most magical and memorable adventure ever, Jordan!  I am just so very excited for you!  Please visit us again with any other questions you have!
