    My family will set sail on a 7 day Fantasy Cruise in May. During the cruise, my daughter will turn 13. Are there special complementary things that the cruise line offers for a birthday? Do you have other fun ways to celebrate while onboard?

    Hi Mary Jo!

    I can't think of a better way to celebrate your daughter's 13th birthday than on the brand-new Disney Fantasy!  She is going to make some fantastic memories that your family will treasure always.

    On her birthday, make sure to stop by Guest Services to pick up a "Happy Birthday" button to either wear or have as a keepsake.  I would also recommend bringing something from home that can be signed by the characters onboard.  It could be a photo mat, pillowcase, or a Mickey Vinylmation.  Just drop it by Guest Services when you embark labeled with your name, stateroom number  sharpies and any specific birthday directions.  It will be returned to your stateroom on one of the final nights of the cruise.  Any one of these items will make for a unique keepsake for your daughter to take home with her.

    Make sure to let your dining servers know that your family is celebrating a special birthday while onboard.  Celebration Cakes are available to order to be delivered to your dining table during your dinner that evening.  Disney Cruise Line also offers Happy Birthday Celebration Packages that include the cake and in room decorations.  I am sure either one of these would make your daughter's birthday even more magic.  If you decide to order a cake, all orders must be received seven days prior to sailing.

    I hope this information helps make your daughter's birthday the best yet!

    Let me know if you have any other questions before setting sail.
