    Hi, We're sailing on Disney Dream 4-7 March and was wondering if they'll be a Pirate night and party? And what should we expect with covid protocol? Thanks! Monique

    Ahoy there, Monique! Welcome to planDisney! 

    I was going to answer your question, but I'm a little...let's say "tied up" at the moment...you might want to read that note over on my desk...


    If ye be readin' this here message, consider yerself smiled upon by Calypso herself. While it be true that we be in the Caribbean waters, for the time bein' we'll be cuttin' Disney Cruise Line ships caught in our waters for only three nights a bit o' slack. We won't be boardin', plunderin', or otherwise pesterin' your crew. BUT YE BE WARNED - there's no tellin' when our kindness will run out...or when the craving for Mickey Waffles will be too great to resist..."

    Well, Monique, seems like you've lucked out and won't be tied to the mast like I currently am. While that may be slightly disappointing if you were looking forward to crossing blades with a pirate or two, not having a pirate takeover of the ship or at the restaurants does mean you will be able to experience Royal Palace, Enchanted Garden, and Animator's Palate, with their original menus! Ah, planDrew-approved tip #1: While you're at Animator's Palate, I highly suggest ordering the Black Truffle Pursiettes!

    As far as Disney Cruise Line's commitment to health and safety, one thing is true: the Magic is Here! While some things may currently be different like distanced character experiences and being served by crew members at Cabanas, your Disney Cruise Line vacation will still be filled with the Disney Magic you've come to expect! My wife and I always joke that the Disney Cruise Line fleet is cleaner than our home most of the time, and now with enhanced cleaning protocols, they've turned that up to 11. The most notable change you should expect is that All Guests (ages 2 and up, including those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19) are required to wear face coverings while indoors.

    For the most up-to-date information about current protocols and how entertainment and other onboard offerings may be affected, be sure to check the Know Before You Go information! I'd also suggest you have the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app downloaded to stay informed of activities while aboard the ship! Oh, and planDrew-approved tip #2 - One of the biggest changes if you've cruised before will be the "self-serve muster drill," but don't worry, the Navigator app will guide you through that as well! 

    Well Monique, I hope that helps you set a course for an incredible time for you and your crew - and in just a few weeks! Thank you so much for your questions, and if anything comes up between now and embarkation day, you can always drop us another line here at planDisney! 

    Oh, and before you go...would you mind cutting me loose? 

    Ah, much better!
