    Quick question... If taking a back to back cruise, do have have to pack your bags and have them go off ship if you are staying in the same room?

    Welcome aboard, Regina! My family and I love sailing with Disney Cruise Line, but that last morning is so bittersweet, having to wave goodbye to the ship and the amazing Cast Members who have made our cruise experience so magical. We loved our first back to back sailings this past year because as all of the other guests were leaving, we had another cruise to enjoy! You're in for such a treat!

    When the last night of your first sailing arrives, the other guests will be packing their bags to disembark the next morning and sending their luggage ahead, but you do not need to do this! Since you're staying in the same stateroom, just remind your stateroom host that you're on back to back sailings. He or she will already have this info, but we reminded our wonderful host, just to be sure. You will need to disembark the ship for just a bit of time that morning but you will then be some of the first guests to come back on. All of this information will be given to you in a letter the night before so you have the specifics for your sailing, as it can differ by ship and itinerary. It's a good idea to bring a day bag with you when you disembark with some things to keep little ones busy in the port terminal waiting area. But, boy, what a happy feeling you'll have knowing that you still have more days to enjoy aboard the ship and at sea with Disney Cruise Line! I wish we could book back to back sailings every time, it was such an enjoyable treat this past vacation!

    Enjoy every magical moment, Regina!
