    We are going on a 7 night Wonder cruise out of Galveston next month. Is formal night on night 2 and semi-formal on night 6? From what I have been seeing on other ships and cruises, this seems to be the most often configuration of those two nights.Thanks

    Ahoy, Carolyn!

    I'm so glad you navigated your way to the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask your questions about your upcoming sailing on the Disney Wonder! It won't be long now before your family will be treated to seven nights of fun with Captain Mickey, Admiral Donald, and the rest of the gang!

    When packing for your 7-Night sailing, you will want to plan for four nights of cruise casual attire. This simply means that no swimwear or tank tops are allowed in the main dining rooms. Your cruise will also include an optional formal night and an optional semi-formal night. On these evenings, you will see many of your fellow passengers dressed in everything from ball gowns and tuxedos (my favorite!) to cruise casual attire, and anything in between.

    You will also want to plan for Pirate Night, which is probably my favorite night on any Disney Cruise Line sailing. You and your buccaneers will want to dress in their pirate-y best. Be sure to head up to Deck 10, starboard (right) side to watch the fireworks at the Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party. This is the absolute BEST place to view the fireworks with no obstructions. You will not be disappointed, I promise!

    As long as your family has the correct attire packed, it doesn't really matter which night is which! You can see on the Daily Navigator that is delivered to your room what the night's attire is. On a 7-Night sailing, typically the first day at sea is Formal Night, one of the middle days is Pirate Night, and the 6th night is Semi-Formal Night. This is all subject to change, depending on the ports and weather.

    I hope your family has a WONDERful time sailing on the Disney Wonder out of Galveston. Please visit us again with more cruise questions before you set sail!

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.
