    Hi Moms! So my friend who will be traveling with me will have a birthday a few days after we return to port. Is there still a way I can surprise her once on board and if so, can you give me a price estimate? Thank you so much for your assistance! :)

    Ahoy, Angela!

    I'm thrilled to welcome you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are going to have such a blast sailing the high seas with Captain Mickey, especially since you'll be celebrating your friend's birthday! In my opinion, Disney Cruises are the perfect setting to celebrate any occasion!

    One way you can surprise your friend is by visiting the Gifts & Amenities page on the Disney Cruise Line website and checking out the "Birthday Theme Cabin Decorations" and the "Birthday Sailaway Treat". Your friend will be so surprised because their stateroom will "magically" be set up with birthday-themed decorations upon your arrival onboard! Although prices are always subject to change, the "Birthday Theme Cabin Decorations" currently cost $45.00 and the "Birthday Sailaway Treat" is currently $29.00.

    Another idea! During dinner in the Main Dining restaurant on the first night of your voyage, let your Server and Assistant Server know that you are celebrating your friend's birthday while onboard. When we've celebrated birthdays or anniversaries during our previous cruises, our Serving Team came out one evening of the voyage with a special celebratory dessert and sang to us! It was amazing! I also recommend calling a Disney Cruise Line agent at (800) 951-3532 and letting him/her know that there is a special occasion during your voyage. They'll make a note on your reservation and that note will be seen by your Server and Assistant Server!

    Angela, I hope I gave you a couple great ideas to make your friend's birthday cruise an unforgettable adventure on the high seas! If you have any future questions, please sail back and visit us again!
