    This is our first disney cruise with our 7 year old daughter. We will be cruising over Christmas. I am not sure what excursions to sign up for...there are so many options. Do you have a "must do" list for first time cruisers?

    Georgia Greetings Judith!
    You are in for a real treat with sailing on Disney Cruise Line for the first time over Christmas!  Your princess will definitely have a holiday to remember because Disney Cruise Line always makes holiday sailings extra magical!
    I'm not sure which vessel you have chosen for your holiday on the high seas so I'm going to recommend a few Port Adventures that are offered on both the Bahamian and Caribbean itineraries.  Splashtacular excursions are always popular and if you daughter is a dolphin fan; I suggest booking either a Dolphin Encounter or Swim.  If she enjoys swimming, a snorkel or stingray adventure is also a great option.  If your cruise visits Castaway Cay, the bikes are fun as well as the aqua trikes and paddle boats, and these activities can be reserved on the island.
    Since there are a wide variety of Port Adventures, I suggest making a wish list with your daughter so that when you go to book, you have several options.  Please write back if you have any specific questions.
    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel, Judith!
    Have a magical day!
