    Hi! I am going on a cruise at the end of November and heard that the ship does alot of Christmas themed things. Are all of the movies, activities, and parties the entire cruise holiday themed? Also will the characters always be in Christmas attire?

    Welcome aboard, Brandi! Disney Cruise Line has some magical surprises in store for you during your Very Merrytime sailing in November! My family and I have enjoyed a few different Very Merrytime sailings, and have loved each and every one!

    The main areas of the ship will be decorated for the holidays, making for some fabulous photos! One one night, your favorite Disney friends will be out in their own Christmas attire, yes, but on other nights, you'll see them sporting their cruise attire, formal attire, or other fun outfits, so you'll have plenty of opportunities for a variety of photos with Mickey and his pals. There will be movies galore, and no, not all of them are Christmas-themed. You can expect the latest first-run Disney releases to be showing in the Buena Vista Theatre onboard, and you'll have the fabulous Broadway-style shows in the Walt Disney Theatre throughout the sailing too.

    But, there will be some special events and activities with a Christmas theme, so if that is high on your list of must-do's, then check your Personal Navigator each day, or the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App, to find out where you can decorate gingerbread houses, dance at the Deck the Deck Tropical Party, take part in the Christmas tree lighting ceremony, and more.

    There are activities and events for everyone throughout the sailing, whether you're ready to celebrate the holidays or not, as you'll also experience all of the non-holiday magic that Disney Cruise Line offers its guests on each and every sailing, Brandi! You're in for a real treat! Have a great cruise!
