    Hi there, Would you know if the cruise ships are limiting capacity on board for 2022? We’re looking into booking an Alaskan cruise for July/Aug but still unsure. Also for dining is it buffet style where guests self serve or has this changed? Thank you

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney Shannon, we thank you for your excellent questions!

    Sailing on an Alaskan itinerary with Disney Cruise Line will definitely bring forth the most unique and positively memorable experiences ever, how very lucky you are! Prehistoric glaciers, quiet seaside hamlets, all await your exploration, and you can even navigate the Inside Passage to explore historic mining towns isn't that so exciting?!

    Shannon, I completely understand your curiosity regarding passenger capacities especially during these unprecedented times, and I would love to be able to provide that information, but I apologize, because as a fellow Guest, I am not privy to that information, only Captain Mickey Mouse knows for sure. I will share, however, that looking through various social media platforms from recent sailings, I do get the sense that the ships are not completely at capacity when comparing very recent photos to past sailings through my personal experiences as a Platinum Castaway Club member. If you are willing to contact Disney Cruise Line perhaps they may be able to furnish you with specific capacity numbers?

    Dining at Cabanas Restaurant will provide you with a free-flowing experience for breakfast and lunch to select from 10 diverse food stations offering fresh culinary classics. In the evening the restaurant transforms into a table-service, sit down meal either outside or inside where you will be offered a 4-course signature meal just like the ones offered in your Disney Cruise Line Dining Rotation restaurants.

    Once booked you may wish to consider a Pre- or Post-Cruise Hotel Stay arranged through Disney Cruise Line, a visit to Vancouver will afford you so much to see and do at this beautiful, cosmopolitan Canadian city.

    Consider downloading the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App to manage your plans before and especially during your sailing, I love the countdowns myself!

    During your sailing, you will be able to book another sailing with the Disney Cruise Line Onboard-Only Offer via the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App or you can visit the Future Cruise Sales Desk near the Atrium Lobby if you wish.

    Please refer to Disney Cruise Line's - Know Before You Go resource continuously, even up to 24-hours prior to sailing as information may change.

    Shannon, I hope this information serves you well, it was my pleasure assisting you today, please stop by planDisney for more first-hand tips and advice - thank you!
