    We have a booking on the Treasure for NYE 2025, but have never done a NYE cruise & concerned we will not be able to stay up late enough to enjoy the festivities & not sure what to expect given the added cost from our Mar 25 cruise.Is it worth it?

    Hello, Mary!

    Thanks for sailing by planDisney with your question! 

    I am so excited for the Disney Treasure to join the Disney Cruise Line fleet later this year! It looks like the cruise you have booked is one of the earliest sailings for this gorgeous new ship, which is so exciting. I often feel a bit of fear that I'll miss out on something magical during our cruises, but I want to introduce you to one of my very favorite cruise activities:


    Yes, really! An afternoon nap can give you the energy and pixie dust you need to ring in 2025 with all our Disney pals. I would recommend choosing a Port Adventure that starts first thing in the morning and leaves some time to rest in the afternoon if you want to go ashore on the last day of 2024. Then take a nap, order some room service for a snack, and get ready to enjoy one of the most unique nights you'll ever spend at sea! On January 1, 2025, I would look for a Port Adventure that maybe lets my crew sleep in a bit...and plan on some more room service for breakfast to have a relaxing morning. 

    Only you can decide if this itinerary is a good fit for your family, but I think a new adventure is always worth exploring...and the Disney Treasure is made for brave explorers! I would imagine that your Cruise Director will have plenty of entertainment on the itinerary to help you get to the stroke of midnight without falling asleep. A late night could be the perfect time to visit adult spaces like The Haunted Mansion Parlor or Skipper Society for an extra snack while you count down to midnight! It looks like there are already plans for a special dinner menu and fireworks at sea to mark the occasion, too.

    Finding the perfect balance between relaxing and exploring is one of the best parts of a Disney Cruise, Mary! I hope you'll be able to enjoy this unique itinerary on the brand-new Disney Treasure and start 2025 off with lots of magic.

    Keep moving forward!
