    Our family will be on our first Disney Cruise which is deporting from Galveston on December 9th - 16th, 2016 and will be visiting Key West, the Bahamas, and Castaway Cay. What's the weather generally like for our time at sea, so I can pack accordingly?

    Ahoy, Elisa!
    You're in the final week of your cruise countdown! Woo hoo! I'm sure you can't wait to cast off on your Very Merrytime Cruise aboard the newly re-imagined Disney Wonder. Captain Mickey and his crew are looking forward to welcoming you aboard real soon!
    I'm sure packing is the number one item on your "to-do" list for the coming days, so I'm glad you stopped by for some tips. It is hard to predict the exact weather you'll experience, but from what I've researched you can probably expect daytime temperatures in the mid to lows 60s to 70s as you cruise towards Key West and the Bahamas. The good news is that once the outside temperature drops below 75, the pools on board are heated. I suggest bringing some layers to wear on the sea days so you can peel them on and off as the temperatures changes throughout the day. In the evenings, I always like to have a sweater or jacket no matter what time of year, so I can enjoy walking on the deck under the stars.
    Be sure to check out the Packing List suggested by Disney Cruise Line as you prepare for next week, Elisa. Best wishes for the most "Wonder"ful time on the highs seas with Disney!
    Bon Voyage!
