    My family will be celebrating a milestone birthday in 2022. Do you have any recommendations for unique itineraries that may be offeres in July or August 2022? Thank you!

    Welcome aboard planDisney, Angela! 

    I love it when Guests like you start planning cruises for the future, especially to celebrate a special occasion. Believe me, birthdays are extra magical when they are celebrated at sea! Sounds like you have a milestone birthday on the horizon, and Captain Mickey can’t wait to help you make the most of it during your high seas adventure. Now to select the perfect voyage for this once-in-a-lifetime SAIL-a-bration!

    I agree that a unique itinerary would be the perfect birthday gift. You’ve heard the saying, “In case you need gift ideas, I wear a size 7-day Disney cruise.” So funny...and accurate! Disney Cruise Line has not yet published their Summer 2022 itineraries, BUT they have announced that the Disney Wish, the newest ship in the fleet will make its debut then. My guess is that this will be the hottest ticket and Guests will be clamoring to make reservations.

    The best way to stay in the know about Disney Cruise Line announcements is to follow the Disney Parks Blog and to check back constantly on the Disney Cruise Line website. So as soon as those Disney Wish itineraries drop, be sure to check them out. I have a milestone birthday in 2022 as well, so I will be stalking those sailings right there with you. You might say that we are TWINS that way!

    OK, so this next suggestion isn’t on Disney Cruise Line, but did you know that Adventures by Disney just announced expedition cruises to the Galápagos Islands and Antarctica? These sound fascinating, and I’ve always wanted to go to the Galápagos! If for no other reason than to see those famous Giant Land Tortoises. After checking out all the activities (hiking, kayaking and snorkeling...yes please) and the wildlife opportunities with seals and sea lions, I’m thinking that this is precisely what you mean by unique itineraries. And hey, it’s for a special birthday, so why not?

    Then there’s always an Alaskan adventure on the Disney Wonder or a unique double dip cruise with TWO stops at Castaway Cay, both of which will likely be available for your desired dates in 2022. So whether you crave glaciers and the great outdoors or sunkissed days and sandy toes, there’s definitely a Disney cruise that fits the bill!

    Having a birthday at sea is SEAsational! Here’s a planDisney tip: Cakes and select beverages can be delivered to a stateroom or a dining room on the selected date and time of your choosing. Cake orders must be placed no later than 7 days before your sail date. For all other gifts, make arrangements at least 3 days before your voyage begins. That gives Captain Mickey and his crew plenty of time to pull off the surprise! Don’t forget to let them note on your reservation that you will be celebrating a special birthday...but disclosing the actual birthday number is totally optional.

    All of us at planDisney love birthdays and making them magical, so feel free to send more questions our way. Wishing you fun planning and a very Happy Birthday!
