    Hi, I'm looking at doing the 7-Night Northern Europe Cruise from the 3rd to the 10th of September 2023 and was wondering whether there will be a pirate's night on this sailing as I don't want to invest in an outfit if there's not. Thanks x

    Ahoy there Nate, and welcome back to planDisney!

    It looks like you're contemplating making the leap from land to sea on an upcoming voyage aboard the Disney Dream and I'm so glad you've come to ask all about whether the Pirate Night Deck Party will be making an appearance in some very different waters than its usual Caribbean home. From the sounds of it, you're looking at the 7-Night Northern Europe and Norwegian Fjords Cruise from Southampton which will take you to some incredible European Ports of Call. While at the present time not too many details have been released about your particular voyage, I may be able to provide you with a few bits of nautical knowledge that may be helpful:

    • Over the past decade, cruises sailing Northern itineraries including Alaska or the Norwegian Fjords have not included fireworks displays due to regional maritime regulations, and with special consideration given to local laws and environmental restrictions.
    • On these particular cruises, the usual "Pirates in the Caribbean" Deck Party that you might be accustomed to in warmer waters is transformed into "Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends" which is a Frozen-themed deck party that trades swashbuckling swords for snowflakes and singing songs!
    • Events and offerings are subject to change without notice, and don't be surprised if you'll only find out for sure once your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App is updated on the day that you embark. 
    • Your particular voyage coincides with the 25th Silver Anniversary at Sea, and preparations are currently underway to bring specially-themed celebrations on board. While there haven't been any other official announcements about what these offerings may entail on the Northern European cruise itineraries, you can at least plan on having one shimmery, silver outfit or accessories instead of pirate gear packed in your luggage!
    As this is still quite a new itinerary for the Disney Dream, I would recommend keeping a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest official news and updates, along with any notices sent to you by Disney Cruise Line after booking your voyage. Please don't hesitate to come back to planDisney to ask me anything else ahead of your next ocean adventure! Be sure to check out our Disney Cruise Line Specialists Tracie and Adrianna for the oceans of knowledge they possess about cruising!

    Here's to an enjoyable night on board, whether it's filled with Fireworks or Frozen fun!
