    We are going on the Dream 12/21-12/24/2020. What deck is the Pirate party and Sail away party on?

    Welcome back, Lurline!

    I always love sailing with Disney Cruise Line, but some of my family's favorite memories have been made during our Very Merrytime sailings with Disney, so I'm excited to hear that you'll be kicking off the Christmas season with a magical adventure at sea with Captain Mickey and his crew!

    The first day onboard, after you get settled in your stateroom, wander the ship to explore the amazing venues, and then attend the lifeboat drill, you'll get to head up to Decks 11 and 12 where the Sail Away Celebration will take place. It will finally be time to wave goodbye to land as the ship begins to head out to sea. On stage, the Cruise Staff team and some of your favorite Disney friends will be dancing and singing to kick off the trip. Guests get streamers to wave, and of course the first of the Drink of the Day offerings will be available to purchase as well. I know our cruise with Disney has truly begun when I'm dancing with my husband and kids on deck with a fruity drink in my hand singing, "Adventures away! Sailing the ocean blue. And suddenly you are sailing away. There's so much to explore and everything's waiting for you...." You'll be singing along too that day!

    We like to stand just off to the side of the stage on Deck 11 for the party so we're right in on the action. Another good spot is along the railings on Deck 12, Midship, that overlook the pool deck where the party is taking place. Guests will be all over the Midship of Deck 11 and the overlooks on Deck 12 for the party, so head straight up after the lifeboat drill and snag a great spot!

    Mickey's Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party takes place in the same location a few nights later on Pirate Night, so you'll be well acquainted with the set up by the time you're ready to be decked out in swashbuckling attire to attend the pirate party, Lurline.

    Have such fun planning this exciting adventure!
