    Will there be a pirate night or a formal night on the 7 day Very Merrytime cruise leaving from Cape Canaveral on December 9th?

    Hello, Keri! Welcome to planDisney. It's just about time for your Very Merrytime sailing to begin! 

    I'd be happy to share what you can expect on your upcoming voyage. You'll be sailing seven nights and it will be stuffed like Santa's sack with fun for everyone. Here's a rundown of what you can expect for your itinerary:

    • Saturday- Casual Attire
    • Sunday- Formal Attire
    • Monday- Casual Attire
    • Tuesday- Optional Pirate Attire
    • Wednesday- Casual Attire
    • Thursday- Semi-Formal Attire
    • Friday- Casual Attire
    Not only will your cruise include a Pirate Night and a Formal Night, but you can look forward to a Semi-Formal Night onboard as well. Please take note that entertainment schedules are subject to change. On a cruise I took last year, our Pirate Night was shifted by one day to take advantage of a night with clear skies. The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app will be updated as needed so that you can stay informed about all of the activities scheduled throughout your cruise. You can access this information in the app once you are onboard the ship. 

    If you are excited about the holiday cheer that you'll be experiencing onboard, be sure to scour the Daily Activity Schedule within the app for holiday-themed activities and entertainment. Look for Mickey's Tree Lighting Magic Ceremony, Santa's Winter Wonderland Ball, and more. I find it especially fun to take pictures with the Disney Characters on board as they are dressed in their festive best. You'll see plenty of families coordinating their outfits for holiday photos with Characters on the ship. I've even seen groups dressed in matching pajamas to eat breakfast or meet Santa Claus. It's a very merry atmosphere indeed!

    Have a holly jolly cruise,
