    When the ship is docked can the kids still go to the activities in the Ocean Club?

    Welcome back, Sherry!

    The Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab have been my kids' favorite spots since they were tiny sailors on their very first Disney Cruise Line voyage. There are so many times when it's difficult to tear them away from all the fun and entertainment that takes place there day and night. I love that they have such amazing and magical times there.

    The Club and Lab are open when the ship is in port, yes. In fact, if you and your husband want to head out on a Port Adventure with Disney or just explore the port on your own, you're welcome to check the kiddos into the clubs to hang out with new friends and the fabulous counselors while you head off the ship. However, I do suggest that you book at least one Port Adventure together as a family as there are so many amazing and educational experiences to enjoy in the ports together where everyone can learn, have fun, and get a taste of the history and culture of that particular port city.

    Each evening, you'll receive a Personal Navigator in your stateroom. This is the ship's schedule of events and activities with times listed for all venues onboard. You can also download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App which includes all of that and more and is accessible once you are onboard. Check these each day for that day's hours for the clubs, guest ashore and all aboard times, and port information.

    Have fun planning this exciting cruise!
