    We are going on a 4 day cruise on the Disney Dream with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren in a few weeks. Do we need to bring our own pirate costumes to wear at the deck party for pirate night? (I need to plan something, if so. Help!)

    Ahoy Ellen –
    You came to the right place to get help for your pirate dilemma. But first of all, let me congratulate you and your family on your fabulous multi-generational cruise! The Dream is an amazing vessel filled with luxury, grandeur as well as whimsical fun. My crew had a fabulous trip a couple of months ago, and it was truly unforgettable. So now let’s plan your pirate night! Many families choose to participate in Pirate Night so you will find all kinds of pirate gear and costumes on display during the celebration. I have seen families do simple pirate attire where they cut out a jagged saw-tooth edge on a white t-shirt, tie a red sash on, add an eyepatch and there is an instant pirate! Pinterest has some cute home-made pirate outfits that are quick and easy to do. Other families go all out and bring out first class gear, and I believe they REALLY ARE PIRATES! I purchased pirate costumes from an online store, and they are pretty authentic. Local party stores also carry pirate costumes for purchase prior to your trip. If you do not want to lug pirate gear into your treasure chests, then I suggest that you visit the Pirates League for a full pirate make-over or the shops onboard will have select pirate gear for sale. Ellen, we hope that your family has a great time swabbing the decks on the Dream in the next few weeks, and thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
