    Hello! We are embarking on our first Disney cruise in a few days and it will be my sister’s birthday! Does DCL do anything special to celebrate birthdays and should I let someone know when we board?

    Welcome aboard, Kristen!

    How exciting! Your countdown is in the single digits! Your sister is lucky to have such a thoughtful sister. Let me put on my party hat and share some celebration ideas with you. 

    Disney Cruise Line loves to celebrate birthdays! I recommend stopping by Guest Services and picking up a complimentary “Happy Birthday” button for your sister to wear throughout the entire cruise. The Crew, other Guests, and even the Disney Characters will notice the button and hopefully share their good wishes with your sister. I also suggest notifying your dining room servers that your sister is celebrating her birthday. While nothing is guaranteed, they will likely ask which night you want to celebrate and bring out a special dessert.

    You may want to purchase room décor or flowers from Onboard Gifts to be delivered to your stateroom. You do have to act quickly because all orders must be placed no later than three days before sailing. Alternatively, you could bring a couple of magnets and a birthday banner to decorate your stateroom door to celebrate her special day. 

    If your sister likes pampering, you could treat her to a spa or beauty treatment at Senses Spa. Better yet, you can reserve a treatment together for some quality time with your sister. Once you board, check with the spa to see what is available. There are even spa treatments for teenagers, depending on your ship. 

    Kristen, there’s no better friend than a sister. I’m happy that you get to celebrate together onboard. If there is anything else you can think of in the coming days, please stop by and see us again.

    Wishing you the most magical voyage!
