    Love the panel, ladies! Tons of information. I have a question...I have a few people in our party who would prefer not to participate in the formal/ semi formal nights. Are there alternatives to to those evenings? I know I will be going.

    Hi, Gwen!

    Thanks for the compliment -- we're glad that you find our panel so helpful!  We certainly enjoy helping other guests experience our joy in planning a Disney vacation, and I particularly like helping Disney Cruise Line's sea-faring guests.

    No guest is required to participate in the formal or semi-formal evenings while on board.  Instead of going to your regular dining rotation on those evenings, you can choose from the quick-service locations, the buffet restaurant located on the pool deck or room service.  When we were in Alaska on the Disney Wonder last month, some people we were traveling with came on board from a Port Adventure right before our dinner seating.  They were just too tired to change clothes for dinner.  So, they grabbed a quick bite at Beach Blanket Buffet; took in a movie and called it a night.

    That's what I love about cruising.  You have the freedom and flexibility to make the right decision for your vacation and for your family...even if it's a last-minute decision. I hope this helps you and your group plan.  Let me know if I can do anything else for you.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!

    Bon voyage,
