    This is our 1st disney cruise! We are deciding between the 7 & 10 day Norway/Europe. We are travelling with 9 & 11 yr old girls. With all of the activities to do on the boat is the 10 day cruise just too overwhelming?

    Ahoy, Jocelyne!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you're in the beginning stages of planning your very first Disney Cruise! I can feel your excitement through your question! I think your pirate princesses are such an awesome age to enjoy all the fun and excitement that awaits them onboard.

    You asked a really great question! I've been on multiple Disney Cruises lasting greater than seven nights and have to share with you that in my opinion, the "vibe" around the ship during the longer voyages is very relaxed! I think because families have more time onboard, they don't feel like they need to pack everything in during each hour of free time. Instead, they take more time to lounge by the pool, catch a movie at the Buena Vista Theatre or even sleep in a couple mornings!

    I completely understand how it can feel overwhelming when you think of all there is to see and do while onboard. Don't worry, though! The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help you every step of the way! You'll receive a Personal Navigator newsletter each evening in your stateroom that has the schedule of activities for the following day. My family loves sitting down and highlighting everything we'd like to do! Sometimes, our biggest plan is eating a delicious breakfast at Cabanas and then seeing where the ocean breeze takes us for the rest of the day!

    Jocelyne, no matter which itinerary you choose, your family will have a magical time! Please come back to ask more excellent questions while you plan your voyage with Captain Mickey!
