Disney's Very Merrytime Cruise is the Perfect Way to Celebrate the Holidays

Disney’s Very Merrytime Cruise is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays!

Do you love Disney magic? Do you love holiday magic? Do you love going on vacation? Combine all three and sail away on one of Disney’s Very Merrytime Cruises.

The magic starts as soon as you step foot on one of the Disney Cruise Line ships. The central lobby of the cruise ship will feature a life-sized gingerbread house and a 24-foot Christmas tree along with shimmering lights, garlands, and poinsettias to get you in the holiday spirit upon boarding.

Next, you can enjoy a large variety of onboard activites and entertaiment. These include:

  • Mickey’s Tree Lighting Magic Ceremony – Kids can help light the ship’s Christmas tree at a festiva gala.
  • Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball   – Enjoy Broadway-quality entertainment, Disney Chracters, and holiday music with Santa and Mrs. Claus in the atrium. Guests will also get to see Elsa and Anna – maybe Elsa will work some of her “snow magic” if you’re lucky!
  • Santa Claus Meet-and-Greet
  • Disney Character Greetings – Characters will be dressed in their most festive garb!
  • Storytime with Mrs. Claus – Listen to Mrs. Claus’ tales as she reads to you from her rocking chair in the atrium.
  • Themed Activities and Crafts for Kids 
  • Youth Parties
  • Holiday Merchandise

In addition to the scheduled entertainment, you can feast on holiday cookies, sing along with carolers, and find a special Christmas towel-animal in your room on December 24th and 25th.

The Very Merrytime Cruises range from 3-night stays all the way up to a 14-night stay. You can leave out of San Diego, Port Canaveral, Miami, San Juan, Texas, or New York on one of Disney Cruise Line’s four ships.
