    Will the Disney Magic cruise leaving on April 16, 2022 be having the Sail Away celebration and the Pirates Night Celebration?

    Hello there, Carol!

    Oh boy, you'll be sailing away on the Disney Magic in just a few short days on one highly coveted itinerary! You'll be visiting Disney's private island of Castaway Cay not once, but twice during your sailing. That's double the magic! 

    As the Disney Cruise Line returns to sailing in a thoughtful and phased approach, deck parties are temporarily paused at this time. That includes the Sail Away celebration and the Pirate Night deck party. I am hopeful that these fan-favorite celebrations will return in the future, so I'm sending pixie dust that it happens in time for your cruise! You can check the activity schedule displayed in the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once you step onboard the ship to see what fun activities you can look forward to during your sailing. 

    I do believe that you'll be encountering a merry band of pirates during your voyage! You can expect to enjoy pirate-themed activities during one of the days of your cruise along with a pirate-themed dinner menu and entertainment in the evening. While there may not be a deck party, there will likely be fireworks! I can't wait for you to enjoy all of the entertainment that your Cruise Director and wonderful Crew Members have in store for you. They really do an amazing job of providing memorable experiences for guests of all ages. 

    Since you'll be spending so much time on Castaway Cay, I'd love to share my favorite activity with you ... a bicycle ride! There is no need to book this Port Adventure in advance. Simply walk to the bike rental area whenever it strikes your fancy and enjoy an ocean breeze-filled ride around the island. Afterward, don't forget to cool off with soft-serve ice cream! It's even better if you sandwich the ice cream between two cookies from the buffet. Yum! 

    I hope your time with the Disney Cruise Line is filled to the brim with happy memories. Have a wonderful voyage!
