    I just changed my summer cruise thanks to COVID...we were originally going on a 4-day Bahamas in August but switched to a 6-day Merrytime in December. Is there still a Pirate night? We've never done a holiday cruise, only summer!

    Ahoy Elizabeth!

    What better way to get in the holly jolly spirit than with a 6-night sailing on the fabulous Disney Fantasy? A Very Merrytime cruise with the entire family sounds like a magical way to celebrate the holidays. Prepare for your senses to be amazed with the delicious scent of gingerbread and the wonderful sight of a life-sized gingerbread house in the Lobby Atrium!

    You'll be happy to know that Pirate Night is a featured celebration on most Disney Cruise Line itineraries, and your Very Merrytime Cruise is no exception. As your cruise date gets closer, you can view "My Plans" under "My Reservations" on the Disney Cruise Line website and see your full itinerary by day, including deck parties like Pirate Night. All schedules and activities are always subject to change, but this is the surefire way to find out what events and themed nights will take place during your cruise.

    So as you plan your packing list, make room for those fun holiday sweaters AND pirate gear! Pirate Night is one of my favorite evenings because everyone is so full of the swashbuckling spirit...it’s a real buccaneer blast! The highlight of Pirate Night is the lively deck party punctuated by fireworks at sea (weather permitting) that make the other pirate ships jealous! Check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once onboard. It will help you navigate the dinner menus, deck parties, and character meet and greets.

    I'm so excited for your upcoming holiday voyage! Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you’d like more planning tips for your adventures on the high seas.

    Happy Sailing...and Happy Holidays!
