Christmas is a magical time of year anyway, but on Disney’s Very Merrytime Cruises the magic gets bumped up to another level. If you have ever thought about cruising with Disney around the holidays, here is everything you’ll find on board during these special Yuletide sailings!
Deck the Deck Tropical Holiday Party – With fun games and activities like Candy-cane limbo and dancing, the kids are sure to enjoy themselves with the holiday-themed fun. Guests are invited to share in the yuletide magic of the season during this jovial celebration.
Mickey’s Tree Lighting Magic Ceremony – Children are invited to help light the Christmas Tree aboard the ship during a festive gala.
Santa Claus Meet-and-Greet The holidays just wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Santa Clause. Guests get the chance to interact and get pictures taken with the Christmas icon.
Disney Character Greetings – Not only do guests get to meet some beloved Disney Characters on a Disney Cruise, but the characters are all dressed up in jolly holiday attire to make the experience even more magical.
Youth Parties – Not into the “childish” activities? Teens and tweens can party it up with new friends during music and dance extravaganzas that they are sure to enjoy.
Storytime with Mrs. Claus – Children are invited to gather in the atrium to hear Mrs. Claus read Christmas stories by the tree.
Themed Activities and Crafts for Kids – Are your kids into crafting? They will get the chance to decorate stockings, create festive cards, embark on a holiday scavenger hunt and more. These activities are for the young and the young at heart.
Gingerbread House – Who doesn’t love an extravagant gingerbread house? Made completely from edible ingredients, the ship’s gingerbread house is a life-sized treat. Unfortunately, you cannot eat it but you can take as many pictures as you would like.
Holiday Merchandise – Need to do some Christmas shopping while aboard the ship? Have no fear! You can pick up exclusive, holiday-themed Disney Cruise Line gifts for family and friends.
Planning to cruise on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? You can enjoy cookies on Christmas Eve, special holiday towel animals, carolling with the kids and crew, and Holiday Cheer at Castaway Cay. Guests can enjoy a winter wonderland aboard each ship and on Castaway Cay! Disney’s private island paradise is transformed with “snow” flurries, a Christmas tree and more. Be on the lookout for Mr. and Mrs. Snowman, dressed in their island attire. Plus, the island’s tram is decorated to resemble a reindeer, complete with antlers and a tail.
