    Friends of ours just returned from their first Disney Cruise and have us excited to book our first cruise with DCL. We're considering the Mexican Riviera over Christmas Day (Wonder). What exciting holiday surprises would be in store for us?

    Hi, Cindy!

    Have you caught the Disney Cruise Line "fever" from your friends? I'm so excited for you, and I love that you're considering the 8-night Mexican Riviera Holiday Cruise aboard the Disney Wonder.

    There is much holiday magic to deck the halls for guests who sail with Disney Cruise Line beginning this Thanksgiving and continuing through to the New Year. The ship will be brimming with Christmas activities and events and is sure to spread an abundance of holiday cheer -- from traditional Christmas feasts to "snowflake" sightings and seasonal caroling.

    Some of the festivities from past years which may be experienced on this year's holiday cruise are:

    • A nearly 3-deck-tall tree in the atrium lobby, where "snow" flurries fall and a tree-lighting ceremony occurs.
    • A Christmas Day visit from Santa Goofy, with surprises for all the kids.
    • Holiday caroling.
    • Special family time for decorating gingerbread houses and other Christmas crafts.
    • A reading of "The Night Before Christmas" by Mrs. Claus.
    • Traditional holiday feasts in Disney's restaurants and much, much more!

    DCL Cruise Director Clayton can tell you more about what to expect on under "Videos," and come back here to ask me other questions you may have before your voyage.

    Have a wonderful day and a magically festive holiday vacation. Bon voyage!
