    We are leaving on the TransAtlantic cruise in May out of FL to England. I have 3 children and I am not sure what to pack. I am assuming that in May crossing the Atlantic is chilly. So, rather than shorts and swimwear sweaters and is swimming possible?

    Ahoy, Melissa!
    Wow! What an amazing journey you have planned for next month on board Disney Cruise Line! The Disney Magic holds a special place in my heart because of many wonderful memories my family has made on this magnificent vessel. I can only imagine that you will experience many magical moments with your crew over your fourteen nights aboard!
    I think you are correct that the weather may be chilly while the ships crosses over the Atlantic, so layering will be the key. I suggest bringing pants, sweaters and sweatshirts along with some shorts and short-sleeved shirts. The pools are heated once the outside temperature drops below 75 degrees, so there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the pool areas.
    Since you'll be onboard for two weeks, there are three laundry rooms located on Decks 2, 6 and 7. There are full-service laundry services offered as well. 
    Melissa, I hope you have the most magical time on your Transatlantic sailing on the Disney Magic! If you think of any further questions, please let us know!
