    Hello!!!! My family & I will be first time cruisers this October on the Disney Fantasy (7 night w-Carribbean, we are soooo excited. My 10yr old daughter loves hair braiding and is asking if this is available on the cruise .xxxxx

    Ahoy, Melody!

    On our very first Disney Cruise Line vacation, my younger daughter wanted her hair braided. We had a couple of options. First of all, there are ladies on the pool deck on the ship that can braid. You can go and visit them and schedule a time to have this done. This was the option that we chose. You can also plan to have your daughter's hair braided on Disney's Private Island, Castaway Cay. There are many local women who can braid and you will just need to stop at their hair braiding area, which is located along the main path while walking on Castaway Cay.

    Some other first time cruising tips for you and your family:
        Room service is free, and you can order a Mickey Premium Ice Cream bar! One of my other favorites is to order warm cookies and milk before bedtime. Be sure to tip your servers!
         You can't do everything, and it is ok! Don't try to do all of the activities and feel like you have spent your entire cruise rushing around. Choose the important ones for YOU, and do those!     
        Take LOTS of photos! There are photographers everywhere, be sure to take advantage of their talent.

    I hope you have a FANTAStic cruise aboard the amazing Disney Fantasy. Your long trip from Australia will surely be worth it.

    Happy Cruising, Tracy v.
