    Sailing Nov 2 out of Galveston to Jamaica, Caymans and Cozumel. This will be our first ever cruise of any kind. Do you have any good information on weather and what to pack? Is it cool on the ship at night?

    Ahoy Krista!
    Love the itinerary you have selected for your first magical voyage onboard Disney Cruise Line!  The weather for your sailing should be very pleasant with highs in the 80s and lows in the 70s. It may be chilly in the evenings both on deck and inside so you may want to pack a few light sweaters or jackets especially if you get cold easily. For the day, you will want comfortable clothing and bathing suit attire.  I usually plan something a bit dresser for the cruise casual evenings like sundresses, nice pants or skirts with coordinating tops for me and my daughter.  My son and husband usually wear nice khaki pants or shorts with golf or polo shirts (nice jeans are fine too).   On your sailing, you will have one formal night and one semi-formal night as well.  If you have something dressy to bring, it makes for the perfect night for a nice photo of your family.  Another night you may consider "dressing up" is Pirate Night.  Many Guests, young and old, like to dress in their pirate attire for this fun-filled evening.  Costumes are available for purchase onboard so if you don't have anything you can always check out the selection in Mickey's Mates on Deck Four.
    I hope my answer is helpful, Krista!  Be sure to check the packing list recommendations located in the Planning Center Section of the Disney Cruise Line website for other tips!
    Thanks for stopping by and please write back if I can assist you further!
