    We are going on the Fantsasy Eastern Carribean cruise on Dec 31st, does Disney have a Special New Years celebration? Also, what should we anticipate the weather during that cruise?

    Ahoy, Thomas!
    It is wonderful to assist you again with another excellent cruise question. I can't think of a better way to ring in the new year than onboard the magnificent Disney Fantasy! Your 2017 will be off to a spectacular start after a fun New Year's Eve celebration on the high seas! In the past, a special New Year's Eve menu has been served at dinner to make your holiday meal a bit extra special. A lively deck party including a stunning firework show with complimentary champagne and sparkling cider is also another possibility for the big night. Mickey, Minnie and a few of their favorite pals are typically in attendance leading the countdown to midnight. It will definitely be a memorable night filled with magic, wonder and lots of pixie dust sprinkled in!
    As for weather, I have cruised the Eastern Caribbean around this same time and found the temperatures warm during the day and breezy at night. With highs in the low 80s, we packed shorts and tanks for the day and wore longer sleeves and pants at night. Castaway Cay will probably be the coolest with average highs in the low to mid 70s.
    Thank you again for stopping by, Thomas! 
    Have a magical day!
