    Hello, what will be some fun activities for the kids to do being that this will be their first time on a cruise and will it be better the 4 day or 7 day. How long should in advance should we book it specially if we want an inside cabin. Thank you! :)

    Ahoy Lesly –
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oh, your pirate crew would absolutely love everything they can do on Disney Cruise Line, and to explain it further, let me share some of the things that my sea pups did last month on a 7-day cruise on the Fantasy :
    In the Cruise Terminal, they started off with meeting Minnie in her sailing outfit, and then they boarded the ship to enjoy a tasty buffet lunch. Afterwards a trip to the Oceaneer Club during Open House on embarkation day had the entire family dancing on the light up play floor, skipping hula-hoops, and exploring this fun space. After a short safety drill, we went back to dancing at the Sail-Away Celebration. The rest of the cruise my tiger cubs had a variety of activities both with and without us. Some of the activities included BINGO, Karaoke, the Princess Gathering, a character breakfast, the AquaDuck and Mickey Pool, Nemo’s Reef, first run movies in the theatre, Pirate Night and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
    As you can see, a 7-day cruise allows more time to enjoy the fun.  A 4-day cruise is a great way to unwind and experience the Disney difference regarding service and excellence. We usually will book a cruise about 1 year in advance for the best pricing and availability, but you can often find last minute sales in the Special Offers section to save money. Hope you are able to book the cruise of your dreams, Lesly, and thanks for visiting with us here!
