    I am taking my 12 year old daughter and 8 year old son on the "7-Night Very Merrytime Eastern Caribbean Cruise" November 30th. What is the first thing we need to do when boarding the ship? Have already booked port excursions. Thank you!

    Welcome back aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Azi!

    Only a few more weeks until you are ho, ho, home onboard your Very Merrytime cruise.  I am so excited for you to unwrap all of the magic waiting for you!

    One great thing about cruising with Captain Mickey is that you can take care of booking your onboard reservations, activities and Port Adventures before you arrive at the cruise terminal during your advance booking window.  This means once you get onboard, your vacation has started and you can sit back, relax and enjoy!

    If there were any reservations that you were unable to book successfully during your advance booking window, once you are onboard you could head directly to the Guest Services Desk (Deck 3, Midship) to inquire about any remaining reservations available.  For example, if you still need tickets for the Princess Gathering, you can visit the Guest Services Desk and they may have some available on embarkation day.

    Otherwise, my family loves to explore the ship as soon as we step onboard.  We pack our swimming gear in a carry on bag so that if our stateroom is not ready, we can spend time swimming in the ship's pools to start our vacation.  Everyone in your family can also tour the onboard youth clubs during open house time on embarkation day.  If you are hungry, head to Cabanas to enjoy your very first lunch onboard!  Check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App for all of the onboard activities taking place on your first day to start enjoying the ship the moment you step onboard!

    Check in with us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions before you set sail!
