    Hi! My parents invited all the family to a Cruise on the Disney Dream. We want to thank them inviting them to a massage. Is it better on board or at castaway? and if parents want to have a night out and the my kids (5 and 1) wants to sleep what can we do?

    Ahoy, Ana!

    Are you a lucky duck or what?! Your parents are keepers if they're getting the family together aboard Disney's Dream. I think thanking them with a massage is a great idea!

    Yet, trying to choose between a massage at Senses Spa & Salon and a massage on Castaway Cay in one of the new open-air cabanas is sort of like asking me to choose my favorite child! I think for your parents I would choose a massage aboard the ship simply for the fact that there is more time aboard than on the island, and once they're on the island, they will more than likely want to spend that time with the family as a whole.

    If all the adults want to go out together sans kids, I suggest checking the 5-year-old into the Oceaneer's Club or Oceaneer's Lab and making reservations for the baby in It's a Small World Nursery. The counselors can serve them dinner and/or snacks and also quiet them down for a nap or bedtime if you're out late. I hope this helps you plan!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
