    We're going on our first cruise on January 26 and hitting Tortola, Castaway Cay and St. Thomas. It is also Star Wars Day at Sea. So much I'm sure to do and see and on a budget. Can you suggest some ideas or must do things? Want it to be memorable!

    Ahoy, Steve!

    Thanks for sailing by the Disney Parks Moms Panel as you plan for your first magical voyage! You've planned a cruise of galactic proportions! My favorite itineraries are those that stop at Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! I'm so glad you will experience this island paradise during your voyage.

    You're so right: there will be so much to "sea" and do during your unforgettable cruise! I promise you that this will be memorable from the moment you step onboard! You'll definitely want to experience all of the Star Wars Day at Sea activities! Each day's activities throughout your cruise will be listed in your Personal Navigator newsletters as well as on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. Definitely let out your inner Pirate and dance like a scalawag during Pirate Night! If you can, I also recommend booking an adult-exclusive dinner at Palo.

    Have you started looking at the exciting list of Port Adventures offered by Disney Cruise Line? I completely understand the importance of sticking to a budget. In my opinion, I would choose a Port Adventure in both Tortola and St. Thomas. There are so many exciting things your family can explore and do on Castaway Cay, without booking a Port Adventure, that are included with your cruise fare. From splashing in Pelican Plunge, eating a delicious barbecue feast and relaxing under a palm tree, your day at Castaway Cay will be amazing!

    Steve, I can't wait for you to say "Bon Voyage" to Michigan and "Ahoy!" to your high-seas adventure! If you have any other questions, please come back and see us again!
