    My son and are going on the 12 Night Norwegian Fjords/Iceland cruise from Dover to Copenhagen in June to celebrate his 13th birthday during the cruise. Is there something special I could have done for him while sailing?

    Ahoy, Margaret!
    Celebrating a birthday onboard a Disney Cruise makes it even more magical, so I know your son will remember turning 13 on the Disney Magic for years to come! You will definitely want to have his birthday noted on your cruise reservation if you haven't done so already. You can either inform your travel agent or call Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532 with the specific date, so he can be celebrated in the main dining room at dinner that night. The dining staff will sing and bring a special chocolate birthday dessert to the table. I have sailed on my birthday a couple of times and was surprised with the Birthday Theme Cabin Decorations! The decorations made me smile every time I entered our stateroom, and the door magnet was a great keepsake that we still use at home on birthdays! Another option is to purchase a Celebration Cake to be delivered to either your stateroom or to your dining table. Order forms can be downloaded in the Gift and Amenities section of the website, and orders need to be received at least seven days prior to departure. Another way to celebrate your newly minted teen is with a birthday button from Guest Services! Just stop by upon boarding and pick one up, so all the crew, characters and Guests can wish him well during your sailing! 
    I can't think of a better way for your son to celebrate becoming a teen than on a magical voyage on the Disney Magic, Margaret! Best wishes for a sailing filled with magic, wonder and pixie dust!
