The one where Disney’s Cruises celebrates christmas


Passengers aboard Disney Cruise Lines’ fleet of ships over the holiday season will wake on Christmas morning to find Santa Claus and his elves, along with Mickey and friends at a three-deck tall Christmas tree.

During this holiday season, Disney will sprinkle holiday fairy dust over each ship in the fleet, adding events including a “turkey day” fanfare, Christmas feasts, “snow flurries” and New Year’s Eve galas.

In December, each of the cruises will enjoy special ‘stem-to-stern’ holiday events including:

  • “King Triton’s Tree Lighting”, where a lucky young guest will help Disney characters put a twinkle to the atrium tree.
  • Family holiday craft activities including decorating stockings, building gingerbread houses and making holiday cards.
  • Holiday storytellers sharing tales of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
  • Traditional holiday feasts in the Disney Cruise Line themed dining rooms.

Christmas services will be held on Christmas Day with a midnight mass on Christmas Eve. Hanukkah services will be held each day, from 8-16 December.

Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, will have “snow flurries” and Christmas trees, holiday carolers, holiday-themed activities and crafts, with the chance for passengers to meet with Disney characters.

Disney Cruise Line will offer their themed holiday cruises from Thanksgiving through to New Years, taking in ports in the Caribbean, Mexican Riviera and the Bahamas.
