The Disney Cruise Line was launched in 1998 with the Disney Magic, with the newest ship, the Disney Fantasy, debuting in 2012. The ships have been celebrating the holidays ever since they started service, but the celebrations have gone through significant changes over the years. Now, all cruises that take place from a few weeks before Thanksgiving through Christmas are called Very Merrytime Cruises, and they look more incredible than ever. After the break, see how majestic the Christmas season looks above a Disney Cruise ship!
Christmas is strongly associated with joy, family, and friends, which one could argue are also significant aspects of a Disney Cruise, providing Disney with the opportunity to make the sailings during the time period even more special. A huge tree and a large gingerbread house are placed in the atrium, which is decked out in decorations everywhere you turn. A number of new holiday-themed activities and shows have recently been added, which are sure to delight children as well as families.
I have been lucky to experience cruises on the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy ships, and I can honestly say that the time I spent on those vacations remain some of the best days of my life. I hope to have the opportunity to sail during Christmas season. It is definitely on my list of things I need to do!
Head over to Disney Cruise Line’s site if you are interested in potentially sailing with them this month – while many bookings have already been made, there is still some availability. If you are flexible, there are some great rates up now for several cruises.
