    We are going on our first cruise and was wondering about the entertainment aboard the ship. What shows do you pay for and about how much do they run?

    Welcome aboard Dawn! You are going to have such fun on your very first Disney cruise! I'm thrilled to be able to tell you that once you set foot on the ship, almost everything is included! Each night, you'll dine at a fabulous restaurant, rotating between the three main restaurants as your same dining servers follow you to each spot. Each night, you'll discover amazing shows in the Walt Disney Theatre, many of them Broadway-style Disney shows which you're sure to love. All of this is included in the cost of your cruise.

    The only extras you would need to pay for would be any of Disney's great Port Adventures, alcoholic beverages, spa treatments or dining at one of Disney Cruise Line's Adult Exclusive restaurants, Palo or Remy. The Youth Clubs are included as well, except for the hourly fee for the nursery for little ones under three. Also, at the end of your cruise, you'll want to tip your dining server, assistant server, head server and stateroom host or hostess. You'll get a card toward the end of the cruise to make it easy to charge those tips, and it will note the appropriate tip amounts.

    So, rest assured that you can set foot on the ship knowing that your dining and entertainment are taken care of, and you can simply relax and have fun sailing the high seas with Mickey and friends!
    Let me know, Dawn, if you have any other questions before you head off on your cruise!
