7 Ways to Make the Most of Your Disney Cruise
1. Complete all of your check-ins online.
On the Disney Cruise Line website you can register kids for the clubs, book spa services, make dinner reservations, and even have refreshments sent to your room. Complete all of the check-ins and appointments online prior to your trip, so once you get on the ship you are free to just enjoy.
2. Carry a swimsuit on board with you.
It may be several hours before your luggage is delivered to your room. Carry a swimsuit on board with you so that you can start enjoying the pools as soon as you board. If you end up having to wait for your luggage, you are missing out on valuable pool time, not to mention waterslide time.
3. Check out the itinerary delivered to your room each night.
Each night a cast member will deliver an itinerary to you. Be sure you check it out so you can see upcoming activities, events, shows, club meetings, and other important information. If it is relevant, it will be in the literary waiting for you.
4. Take advantage of the cast members and their cruise knowledge.
The cast members are so friendly and kind! If you have any questions or need any assistance they are happy to help. They can make recommendations, give quick and easy directions, or assist you in your planning. Should you need anything to make the most of your trip and your time, they are a wealth of knowledge.
5. Plan on board activities for the “at sea” days.
You want to make the most of your island stops. There will be so many activities, tasty foods to try, and sightseeing to do. Therefore, plan any on board activities on the days the ship is at sea. That way you aren’t missing out on any of the island festivities.
6. Check out the ship layout prior to your vacation.
The ship is quite large and it can be easy to get loss. Take a look at online maps of the ship so you can get an idea of where you are going once you board. This will save you time from wandering around and you can instead have a sense of direction and save time.
7. Leave your cell phones behind.
You won’t have cell service on the ship, so go tech free and leave the cell phone behind in your room. This will allow you to immerse yourself in the ship and enjoy everything. If you want to take pictures, take a camera with you of course so you can capture the memories as they happen.
