    My son, age 11, and I are going on our first cruise on the Dream over Christmas (12/22-26) We decided that adventures and memories are better than a bunch of plastic toys. Are there any special holiday activities onboard going on to look forward to?

    Hi, Barbara!
    I love the way you think! I feel the same way. Toys get played with for a while and then tossed aside. (Please don't tell Buzz and Woody I said that...) Memories of a fabulous Disney Cruise Line vacation last forever!

    You and your son have so much to look forward to on your Very Merrytime Cruise! Your cruise will have plenty of holiday enhancements and entertainment, including:

    Deck the Deck Tropical Holiday Party - A fun celebration where you can enjoy dancing, games, and candy-cane limbo!

    King Triton's Tree Lighting Ceremony - The holiday festivities kick off with the ceremonial lighting of the tree.

    Santa Claus Meet-and-Greet - An opportunity to get some great pictures and interaction with the big man himself!

    Character Greetings - Disney Characters will be on hand to greet guests in festive holiday attire - perfect for unique photo ops!

    Teen and Tween-only Holiday Parties -A time for teens and tweens to hang out and celebrate with new friends!

    Holiday Storytelling - Tales of holidays around the world, for cruisers of all ages.

    Themed crafts and activities for kids - Decorate stockings, make holiday cards, even head out for a holiday scavenger hunt!

    On Christmas Day, there will be religious services and lots of family activities to enjoy. I've got to admit, I'm jealous! You're going to have the merriest Christmas ever! - Diane W.
