    We are planning a Disney Cruise to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday this year. Is there something small we can do to celebrate for her on board, such as cake and ice cream and/or decorations? Something small/intimate, not over the top.

    Welcome aboard, Jamal -

    What an awesome way to celebrate your daughter's sweet 16th birthday! This will surely be a memorable celebration that she will remember for the rest of her life. There's much fun to be had -- and lots of magical memories to be made.

    On your cruise reservation, don't forget to mention that you are celebrating her birthday. What's nice about that, is that your dedicated dining team onboard will see that note - and they'll celebrate this special occasion with your family on a chosen night during your cruise. They'll take out a cake just for her and sing her a birthday song! (this does not cost extra).

    You can also pick up a Birthday Pin at Guest Services so that she can wear it during the cruise. If you'd like something to be delivered to your stateroom, you can also check out one of the Celebration Packages meant for Birthdays. Your stateroom host will take care of putting up the birthday decorations, and your daughter will be delighted to enter the stateroom on embarkation day! If you'd like a special order cake, that too, is available on that same link. We always mention special occasions that we are celebrating to our dining team.  They love making guest vacations extra special. You can call the Disney Cruise Line travel desk to make sure that your birthday celebration is noted on your cruise reservation. You can contact them directly at 1800-951-3532.

    Wishing you and your Princess a fabulous special Birthday voyage, Jamal!
