Sailing Takes Me Away…To the NORTH POLE or Bahamian Pole – Either Will Do!

Before you start purchasing all of your Christmas gifts for your family – think about what they not only need but also want. Let’s be honest many of the gifts we give and receive for Christmas are things we want, which is so totally amazing! Then, we have a few gifts that we need (also totally amazing), but rarely does a gift fit in all categories. Now a sailing onboard Disney Cruise Line and a gift full of memories, that my friends fits both categories with flying colors.

There’s something extra magical about Disney at Christmas.  The classic decorations with their hidden Mickeys or maybe all of the amazing lights.  The smell of gingerbread or the holiday music that surrounds you wherever you go and themed of course.  When you combine them with the adventure and magic of a Disney cruise, it is the perfect setting for incredible memories. Let’s start planning your next (or first) sailing on a Very Merrytime cruise with Disney Cruise Line.

Disney knows families have different schedules and not everyone wants to be away for the holidays. Sailings for Very Merrytime cruises begin in early November and last until late December.  If you are looking to enjoy the magic and spirit of a Very Merrytime sailing, Disney Cruise Line gives you that wonderful flexibility when choosing a cruise that works for your calendar and schedule. 

Sailings in early November and early December are typically more affordable.  Sailings that take place over holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve) have special experiences in addition to the regular Very Merrytime offerings.  With sailings heading out multiple days a week and from various ports of call, there are plenty of options to choose from. Not only are the various ports helpful, Disney Cruise Line offers Very Merrytime sailings aboard all four ships with sailings that range from 3 to 14 nights, depending on the itinerary you choose. 

One of the things that we love MOST about sailing Disney is the spaces that they have designed for guests of all ages. From rooms for little ones, to spaces for teens and adults, families cannot only enjoy time together, but explore the ship by making once in a lifetime memories in their own spaces. This allows guests of all ages to enjoy exactly what they would like to enjoy, imagine the conversations at dinnertime. Nearly every Disney cruise includes fun-filled deck parties, character meet & greets, Broadway-style shows, and fireworks as sea.  Now, when you sail on a Very Merrytime cruise, you’ll also get to experience:

  • Mickey’s Tree Lighting Magic Ceremony
  • Mickey’s Winter Wonderland Ball
  • Deck the Deck Tropical Holiday Party
  • Santa Claus Meet & Greet
  • Disney Character Greetings (Holiday Attire)
  • Storytime with Mrs. Claus
  • Themed Activities & Crafts
  • Gingerbread Cookie Decorating
  • Christmas Caroling
  • Holiday Animation
  • Stocking Decoration
  • Holiday Cards
  • Youth Parties
  • Christmas Movies

And yes – that is ALL included! Every time we are see Disney decorate for any holiday, we are in complete awe. From classic decorations to modern and retro Disney themes all of their parks, lands and spaces to the nines. You will not even be able to believe the magnitude of the decorations onboard the ships. In the atriums of all four ships you will find a towering Christmas tree and spectacular decor.  You will also see one-of-a-kind, life-sized gingerbread house creations designed by the Disney Chefs.  The smell of gingerbread and holiday spices, combined with the holiday music in the background, will make you feel like you have truly stepped foot in a holiday paradise or a tropical Hallmark movie.  Who s’knows, you may even see it snow aboard the ship! Guys, even Disney Castaway Cay gets in on the fun, with “snow” flurries, snowmen, a decorated island tram, and its very own Christmas tree. 

So whether you are thinking physical gifts or the gift of memories, know sailing a Very Merrytime Cruise will fit EVERY person on your list! Yes, even those that are not the best of sailors (short cruises are available). This year, give the gift of memories onboard the Disney Dream, Disney Wonder, Disney Magic or Disney Fantasy. Sailings are still available for 2019 as well as 2020!
