The 2023 Holiday season on Disney Cruise Line is rapidly approaching and if you haven’t experienced a Very Merrytime Cruise, you are missing out! First of all, and maybe the best part, you’ll be able to get away from the freezing cold and enjoy some much needed warmth and sand. But what’s fun is when you pair that with holiday festivities! This year, there will be two brand new activities for Guests to be able to participate in.
The first is a brand new tree lighting ceremony. On the first night of all Very Merrytime sailings, Guests can gather around the three-deck-tall tree in the ship’s atrium. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Goofy will be there singing classic holiday tunes. Then, Guests can participate in a countdown that not only light up the tree, but also introduce the guests of honor for the cruise. (He may say Ho Ho Ho!)
The second new part of the holiday festivities will be Mickey and Minnie’s Holiday Party. Guests will be invited to the upper decks of the ship for a one-of-a-kind celebration. This high-energy deck party, which is thrown by Mickey and Minnie, will feature favorite Disney friends as they celebrate friendship, love and family with a fresh mix of classic and original holiday songs.
In addition to these new entertainment offerings, the Disney Cruise Line decks and halls will be filled with boughs of holly from bow-to-stern during Very Merrytime cruises. Guests will also find Disney characters debuting new holiday attire. In addition, there will be themed Very Merrytime activities for the entire family, carolers singing contemporary versions of songs that celebrate the holidays, commemorative merchandise and festive food and beverage items.
Disney Cruise Line will set sail from a new South Florida home in Fort Lauderdale, offering four- and five-night Very Merrytime cruises aboard the Disney Dream to locales in the western Caribbean and Bahamas. In addition, the Disney Wish and Disney Fantasy will continue sailing from Port Canaveral to The Bahamas and Caribbean. The Disney Magic will set sail to Baja and the Mexican Riviera from San Diego for holiday sailings before wrapping up the season in Galveston, Texas with Very Merrytime cruises to the western Caribbean.
