    My whole family is going on a 4 night disney cruise to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday and retirement. What are some ideas I could do to make it extra special for her? Thank you!

    Ahoy, Amanda!
    Your mom is one lucky lady to have a family to celebrate her birthday and retirement with a Disney Cruise Line vacation!

    Start the celebration from the moment you board the ship by ordering some flowers or stateroom decorations on the DCL website. The Gifts and Amenities page has lots of fun gifts to choose from that you can pre-order and have waiting in her stateroom.

    One sure way to pamper your mom is to book a relaxing visit to the spa. With a wide range of personal services available, there are plenty of ways to make your mom feel like the Queen of the Sea! You can find a list of many of their fabulous treatment offerings here.

    Another way to celebrate is to book a meal at one of Disney Cruise Line's adult-only restaurants. I'm not sure of the ages of your sailing party, but it's definitely worth sending the littlest cruisers to the Youth Clubs for a few hours so you can enjoy a night out with the "big kids" at Palo. Don't miss their decadent chocolate souffle - it's to die for! Make sure to let them know you're celebrating when you make your reservation, they'll make it a night to remember.

    Other ways to make her celebration special:
    Decorate her stateroom door with fun magnets so everyone knows she's the Birthday Girl.
    Have her wear a Celebration button - she'll love the attention from cast members and fellow guests.
    Order a Celebration Cake through Gifts and Amenities to enjoy one evening.
    Gather the whole family for a photo shoot with Captain Mickey!

    I hope you have an awesome time celebrating your mom! - Diane W.
