Disney Cruise Line will be adding a seasonal flair to its ships during the winter months, and the company is inviting passengers to spend the holidays aboard one of the company’s festive vessels.
Starting in early November, the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy ships will be transformed into Very Merrytime Cruises, featuring Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s-themed events and celebrations.
Some of the events being held onboard the ship during the holiday months include Mickey’s Tree-Lighting Magic, Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball, the Deck the Deck Holiday Party, holiday story time, caroling and seasonally themed crafts and activities.
For Thanksgiving specifically, passengers should expect a full feast featuring all of the typical food associated with the holiday. Add in Mickey and Minnie Mouse dressed in traditional Thanksgiving attire for the kids and NFL football on the jumbo LED screens for the adults, and guests will be treated to a unique experience.
As for the December holidays, Christmas will be celebrated at the atrium lobby tree in the morning, and a traditional dinner will be served in the evening. Christmas services will be held on Dec. 24, with a midnight mass on Dec. 25. Services for Hanukkah will be held each day from Dec. 6 to Dec. 14.
To celebrate New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, voyages will include a special party featuring live music, sparkling wine in commemorative flutes and a midnight countdown.
Here are the schedules for the four ships celebrating the holidays, via DCLNews.com:
Disney Magic sails four- and five-night Bahamian and Caribbean cruises departing Nov. 11 to Dec. 23.
