    Can you stay on the ship at ports destinations, and will activities on board be open on those days?

    Ahoy, Jaclyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You must be getting so excited for your upcoming Disney Cruise. Not only will you get to enjoy all the Disney magic onboard, you will also have the opportunity to experience different cultures while sailing to different ports of call! Setting sail to exotic places with Captain Mickey at the helm is my favorite way to travel to far-away lands!

    I definitely suggest checking out the many Port Adventures that Disney Cruise Line offers for each port of call. However, if you would rather stay onboard and take advantage of the ship while most of the Guests are ashore, that would be amazing, too! You will find many activities to choose from onboard while the ship is docked at a port of call! Staying onboard would be a fantastic opportunity to be pampered at the Senses Spa & Salon, splash in one of the pools on deck or see a movie in the Buena Vista Theatre. The Youth Clubs are open while the ship is docked at different ports of call, with the exception of Castaway Cay; typically, the counselors will have fun activities for the kids on the island throughout the day!

    Jaclyn, I hope I was able to give you some great ideas of all the fun you'll find onboard while the ship is docked at the different ports of call! Please sail back and visit us again with any future questions.
