    This would be our first cruise ever, we a fam of 4 looking at summer 2021 my girls will be 4 and 8 which is the best ship for them? Ideally we want to do a 2-3 days at the park and then sail.

    Ahoy, Shirly!

    It is wonderful to welcome you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I didn't realize last time we talked you were planning for your very first Disney cruise next summer.  How exciting!  You and your girls are going to be treated to so much magic while sailing the high seas with Captain Mickey, no matter which ship you choose.

    Although the Disney Magic is my favorite ship, both my young sailors agree they enjoy the two larger ships, the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream, the best.  One of these two ships would be a great choice as they are sailing from Port Canaveral during the summer of 2021, which would be perfect for your land and sea vacation dreams!

    On all of the ships, your girls can make many magical memories together in the Oceaneer Club, the onboard youth club that boasts incredibly immersive spaces designed just for them.  They will be transported to Pixie Hollow and even be able to experience life as a toy in Andy's Room!  Together, you can all cool off in the pools and take a ride on my kid's favorite part of these ships, the AquaDuck

    You can also treat your girls to Broadway caliber shows.  My favorite is on the Disney Dream, where you can see the stage adaptation of the live action version of Beauty and the Beast.  The entire family can also visit with all your favorite Disney pals and join them during deck parties, like the famous Pirate Night, that make even the saltiest sailors dance!

    I hope I've steered you in the direction of an epic summer vacation in 2021.  Cruise back to see us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have additional questions as you finalize your plans!

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
