    Can you confirm if there is a Pirate night or formal day on our cruise? It is a 5 Night Cruise on Dream leaving Miami on Nov26th 2022. From what I can tell on other post that Day 3 is Pirate, but not sure, and if there is formal night (assuming no?)

    Hello, Lerick! Welcome to planDisney, where my pals and I are happy to help. 

    Let's see, you have a five-night voyage at the end of November to look forward to. How exciting! Not only will you be sailing on a Disney Cruise... but your ship will be all decked from bow to stern for a holiday-themed sailing. The Very Merrytime voyages are both beautiful and full of festive activities to get you in the holiday spirit. 

    While you cannot view this information about your itinerary prior to setting sail, you can chat with Disney Cruise Line via the online chat on their website, or give them a call to inquire about Pirate Night and any formal evenings onboard. I sailed on over to ask, and it looks like you have a Pirate Night scheduled for the second evening of your voyage. You can dress like a pirate, talk like a pirate, eat like a pirate, and party like a pirate! Keep an eye on the activity schedule in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once you are onboard to see all that will be planned for this fun day. Please do keep in mind that entertainment schedules are subject to change. As an example, on a recent voyage I took, Pirate Night was adjusted by a day to take advantage of clear weather for the evening entertainment and deck party. 

    On the fourth night of your voyage, an optional dress-up night is scheduled. This is an evening where guests are encouraged to wear their formal or semi-formal attire. If you would prefer to wear cruise casual attire, that is perfectly fine any night in the main dining rooms onboard. Do what's most comfortable for you and your sailing crew. 

    I hope that clears up your questions! With a Very Merrytime sailing, some families like to coordinate wearing holiday pajamas for photo opportunities with Santa Claus or even just to wear at breakfast. You'll spot Disney Characters in their winter best and experience lots of opportunities to take festive photos. If you are interested in purchasing a photo package, you can do so up to three days in advance of your sailing to enjoy a discount on the package. 

    If you'd like to know more about what to expect when it comes to this themed sailing, I had a chance to chat about holidays aboard Disney Cruise Line during the third episode of the planDisney Podcast. You can give it a listen or even watch it if you are interested. 

    Have a very merry time onboard!
