It’s a Very Merrytime Kind of Cruise!

I’m an absolute huge fan of Disney cruises! I’m also a huge fan of Christmas and all the wonderful

festivities that go along with the holiday season. It’s no wonder that I absolutely adore Merrytime


My family and I sailed on a Merrytime cruise a couple of years and ago and its still one of my favorite

cruises to date. Each ship is decorated for the holiday season and features special events only available

during these special cruises.

Did someone say Christmas Tree? The ship is adorned with a gorgeous Christmas tree! Check out

“Mickey’s Tree Lighting Magic” the first night of the cruise, where Disney characters lead holiday carols

and the lighting of the tree.

Stepping into the atrium, you’re greeted with the delicious scent of gingerbread. Each ship has an

incredible gingerbread house constructed by the crew onboard. The amount of ingredients used is

simply astounding!

I adore the Disney Characters, especially Mickey Mouse, and use each cruise as an opportunity to have

my photo taken with them. During Merrytime cruises, the characters are decked out in the holiday best!

How cute are they?

We always decorate our stateroom door and this cruise was no exception! I printed Christmas themed

magnets and hung up stockings for our fish extender exchange. Disney offers stateroom décor for

purchase, so naturally I had to grab up this comfy blanket and pillow.

Special events include- carolers, Santa’s Wonderland Ball, gingerbread decorating, arts and crafts,

cookies and cocoa, story-time with Mrs. Claus, and even a visit from the big man himself….Santa Claus!!

Don’t think the fun ends on the ship! Nope! Disney’s private island of Castaway Cay is all decked out for

the holiday season as well. You’ll find an enormous Christmas tree, Santa’s sleigh and two sandmen, not

to mention the nautical holiday décor you’ll find throughout the island.

Merrytime cruises are a fun and special time for the whole family! Let me know if I can help you plan your family a Merrytime cruise! Trina Weischedel CFO & Travel Planner Blue Pineapple Travel
