    Hi! We are going on our first cruise this Christmas. We are wondering if there are any special events or meals done on Christmas day? We'll be on the Disney Wonder. Thanks.

    Ahoy, Michael!

    What a wonderful gift Santa's bringing for your family this year - a Disney Cruise Line vacation! You're in for the happiest of holidays with Captain Mickey and his crew.

    Disney Cruise Line's Very Merrytime Cruises were quite popular last year, and I've heard nothing but amazing things about all the festive fun onboard! You'll get to experience holiday enhancements throughout your sailing, with special meals, holiday-themed entertainment and decorations from stem to stern.

    While specifics for this year's cruises haven't been announced, you'll certainly have lots of festive magic on Christmas Day. Last year, guests were able to enjoy these extra holiday experiences on December 24th and 25th:

    Cookies on Christmas Eve
    Special holiday towel animals
    Special holiday surprise (maybe a visit from Santa himself?)
    Holiday caroling with the kids and crew
    Religious Services

    Each day, you'll receive a Personal Navigator - a detailed daily schedule of events. Make sure to bring along colored highlighters so you can make note of your "must-do" activities each day. The ship will be overflowing with holiday happiness, and you won't want to miss any of the excitement.

    I hope this helps with your planning! Please come back and visit with any questions you have as you prepare for your December sailing on the Disney Wonder. You're going to have the merriest Christmas ever! - Diane W.
