    we are planning a 7 night cruise with our 4 year old grandson to Alaska in late August. Is this an appropriate amount of time with him on this cruise and will we be happy for that much time (or will he be entertained for that long with us?)

    Ahoy Donna!

    An Alaskan voyage is a wonderful way to spend time with your sweet grandson!  My children have been able to sail with their grandparents and the memories they have made are priceless!  You will be amazed at how quickly seven days will fly by as you are sailing around the spectacular ports of call.  What is so fabulous about a Disney Cruise is there are more than enough activities to keep everyone extremely happy onboard.  There will be plenty of family experiences you can enjoy together and adult-only experiences you can enjoy with your husband.  Your grandson is going to have a lot of fun of his own while in the Oceaneer Club.  While checked-in he can play with Pluto during his Pajama Party, log in for some computer games, learn all about animals or have some free time to explore on his own!  The youth counselors are fantastic and will make sure your little prince has an absolute blast! When he is not in the club, a twirl down Mickey's Slide is sure to delight him and with 90 degree water temps, you might want to take a dip too!  He is also going to love being able to see all his favorite Disney characters!  With so many opportunities he is going to have a book full of photos and autographs to treasure when your voyage is over.  

    I hope my answer helps reassure you on your decision to embark on a Disney Alaskan Cruise Vacation with your special boy!  If you have any other concerns or questions, just let me know!  I'm here to help!

    Have a great day!
