    I am considering booking my first Disney Cruise for my family of five (we have 5 year old triplets). When the boat is at port, are the youth clubs available for kids if the adults want to do a "grown up" shore excursion (ie scuba diving)? Thank

    Hi Heather - 

    Thanks so much for visiting the Moms Panel and cruising in with your question. What an awesome set of buccaneers you've got - three times the fun! I think you and your family would have loads, loads, and loads of swashbuckling fun on your very first voyage with Captain Mickey :-).

    The Disney Cruise offers top notch Youth Club activities and the best Youth Counselors to go with it. The Clubs are enjoyed by our little cruisers while they are out on the high seas, as well as when the ship is docked at one of its' amazing ports. My kids have been left onboard at the Oceaneer Club for the day many times in the past. It's given us some adult time to enjoy without having to worry about the kids. There's lots of activities that will keep them engaged and excited throughout the day. Come meal times, the Counselors will also make sure they do not go hungry. My son is a big napper in the middle of the day (it takes him a while to get out of California time), and he's managed quite well. The Counselors really do an excellent job with the kids, by making sure they are comfortable and they are having fun. Parents can surely enjoy Port Adventures on their own for the day. And of course, when you're back on board, you can still enjoy Date Night... every night on the Disney Cruise!.

    I'm hoping you do get a chance to sail on a magical voyage on one of the Disney Cruise ships. It is an unforgettable magical experience for the whole family. And I'm sure Olaf from Frozen would agree - it is definitely worth melting for!

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