    Hi we are headed out on the 4 night cruise from Galveston on April 12th and I was curious what night will be Pirate Night? And whether there will be a princess gathering and formal/semi formal night while on board? Thanks for any information you have

    Ahoy Ashlee!
    April is a wonderful time to set sail for a magical voyage onboard Disney Cruise Line!  I'm sure your crew is counting the days until it is your turn for a pixie dusted sailing!
    On your four-night cruise you can expect the following schedule although always subject to change: Day One-Cruise Casual, Day Two-Formal, Day Three-Pirate, and Day Four-Cruise Casual. 
    The Royal Princess Gathering is usually held on the same day as Formal Night, but my advice to is check your Personal Navigator, the daily cruise newsletter, once you check-in at the cruise terminal.  Usually there is a "Cruise Highlights" section in the first newsletter that will contain the princess gathering information. If not, be sure to stop by Guest Services on Deck Three once you board the ship.  If you are sailing with your own princess, this is not to be missed because it gives you the opportunity for royal greetings with several princesses at one time!  Be sure to arrive early, bring your camera, pen and autograph books!  Also, if your daughter(s) have princess attire, this is the perfect time for them to sparkle and shine just like the Disney Royalty!
    I hope this information is helpful to you, Ashlee!  I'm always happy to assist future cruisers like you so keep me posted!
    Have a magical day!
