    Is there information available on onboard drink packages? Sailing on Magic, July 22-27

    Well ahoy there Shannon, and I wish you a warm welcome aboard planDisney!

    When it comes to setting sail on board any Disney Cruise Line ship, you might find many adults looking to escape, relax and celebrate while relating to Jack Sparrow in his quest for some "stronger" refreshments. From the sounds of it, you're embarking on a 5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise from Miami with Silver Anniversary at Sea, which includes ample time on board to occupy yourself with everything to enjoy on the Disney Magic as you make your way to and from Grand Cayman.

    While there are currently no traditional drink packages offered on board like you might experience on other cruise lines (wherein you would pay a set amount for select unlimited beverages for the duration of your cruise), Disney Cruise Line does offer the ability to purchase a version of a "Wine Package" through Onboard Gifts and may be an option offered to you once on board. While it doesn't quite offer the same level of all-inclusive drinks, folks like the convenience of having it as an optional add-on along with the possibility of savings if you tend to enjoy a bottle or so with your meals.  Alternatively, many aspiring sailors often opt to bring aboard their own alcoholic beverages on Embarkation Day, which is definitely possible as long as you remember to pack it within your carry-on luggage and be sure to review the alcohol policy prior to your sailing just to confirm the restrictions on what you can and cannot bring with you. (From what I've personally observed, anything in excess or beverages that are not allowed to be brought on board have either been discarded or stored until the end of the voyage; there's always a risk that these may not be returned to you, so I recommend adhering to the policy!)

    You may be interested in taking part in one of the Adult Beverage Tastings that take place on board, giving you the opportunity to sip your way through an informative class or seminar during your time out at sea. Another major event to keep an eye out for is the Shimmering Seas Soirée in honor of Disney Cruise Line's 25th Silver Anniversary at Sea Celebration; it will be held on one of the evenings in the ship's Atrium and is best described as short, sweet and sparkly with free cocktails and beverages to toast alongside the Captain - so make sure you snag one when you get the chance! I hope this helps you out Shannon, be sure to come back to planDisney any time for a dose of nautical knowledge ahead of your next cruise!

    May you raise a glass for a successful summertime cruise on the Magic!
