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.
