    If we chose a cruise during November or December, what climate or weather temps would we expect? Would we still be able to swim at the beach or the pools?

    Hi Juliet - 

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel. Planning to sail on the Disney Cruise during the holidays would be such a treat for the whole family. The legendary service that the Disney Cruise is well known for, along with the ship's special holiday activities & decorations will make this vacation extra special. The Very Merrytime Cruises won't disappoint. The ships will be all decked out and you can't help but celebrate!

    If you are visiting Castaway Cay, the weather is usually very beach-friendly during this time. It may be cold, icy & wintery elsewhere, but Castaway Cay will be boasting warm mid-70's to 80's weather for the 'winter'. While at the beach, the water temperature will be nice and refreshing in the mid-70's. As you prepare to travel, I encourage you to check out the weather for the Bahamas, just to get a better update on what to expect. Swimming in any of the pools onboard is always pleasant. It feels like the pools are always warm and comfortable. My kids never miss a day at the pool whenever we're on a Disney Cruise... no matter what voyage we may be on (and that even included Alaska!).

    In addition to the usual fun and excitement on a Disney Cruise, there are also special celebrations for the holidays onboard. All your senses will be on hyper drive from the minute you step onboard... and I think you'll enjoy all the decorations, holiday-themed events and most especially, the awesome food. It's definitely a different way to spend the winter. I hope this works out for you and your family. You'll have a blast!

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're always happy to help!
