    When are staterooms typically ready on embarkation day? Are there activities available while we wait?

    Hello, Debrian! Welcome to planDisney. My pals and I are so glad to have you here. 

    There's nothing quite like stepping aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship and setting off for adventure. Staterooms are typically ready around 1:30 p.m. on the day of your voyage. Luggage may not arrive for a few hours afterward, so I recommend that you bring a swimsuit and coverup in a carry-on bag if you'd like to enjoy the pools onboard shortly after boarding. My family has a tradition of enjoying lunch and then grabbing a soft-serve ice cream cone poolside. 

    For lunch, you can find a delicious buffet meal or be treated to excellent service at one of the main dining restaurants onboard. Check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app after boarding the ship to see which restaurant will be opening its doors for lunch and to look over the menu. After lunch, there are plenty of activities to enjoy and those too will be listed on the activity schedule within the app. You'll find tours of the spa (often with exciting raffles and giveaways) and open houses offered in the youth activity spaces. If you have little ones, this is the perfect time to check out these areas as a family and meet the amazing Crew Members that will be interacting with the kids all cruise long. 

    The entertainment and activities offered onboard are a huge hit for my sailing crew and I hope it's the same for your travel group. Have a splendid sailing and please cruise our way again at planDisney if you have more questions. It's a pleasure to help.
