Hi there! I’m actually on a Disney Cruise that is all decked out for the holidays. The entire lobby is filled with garland, lights, and a beautiful tree.

My favorite Christmas picture so far was on formal night with Minnie Mouse in front of the garland lined staircase.

There really have been a lot of opportunities for holiday photos.

Santa Claus was even here.

My second favorite photo is the kids with new friends and old friends. So sweet!

Adventures by Disney on a Disney Cruise

In keeping with our theme of Adventures by Disney this week, did you know that there is a cruise option through Adventures by Disney? If you are booked on the Mediterranean cruises for 2014, you can add on an Adventure by Disney. There are two options to choose from: a Pre Cruise Adventure and an Adventure during your cruise.

For the Pre Cruise Adventure you will do three nights and four days in Barcelona.  Like with all Adventures by Disney, you will be greeted at the airport to begin your vacation. You will have time for lunch and to explore Barcelona a bit on your own with guidance from your guide before the welcome dinner at Montejuic El Xalet.

Your second day will begin with a privately guided tour of La Sagrada Familia, one of Gaudi’s most famous designs. Then you will visit Parque Guell. This is a wonderland of mosaics. Then it is on to a Catalan style lunch in a 17th century farmhouse along with a stained glass activity of your own. You will have time on your own for dinner and to explore the old Barcelona.

Your third day will begin with a tour of Montserrat, a Benedictine monk retreat. You will have a private tour and you will see the holy grotto known for miracles and mysteries. Then the Junior Adventurers will go hiking with one of the Adventure guides while you enjoy some free time in Monserrat. This evening you will head to Pueblo Espanol, a village that was built for the 1929 International Exhibition. You will have your farewell dinner this evening.

Your fourth day you will board the cruise ship and begin the next part of your Adventure!

You should know these pre-stays book fast! Just like an Adventure by Disney trip, they are going to take you up close and personal and are a fantastic way to visit the country you are in. Pricing for the pre-stay for 2014 in Barcelona is $1899 per adult and $1799 per child. This includes all transfers, most of your meals. It does not include gratuities for your Adventure Guides or your alcohol.

The second Adventure by Disney associated with the Mediterranean Cruises corresponds to your cruise. There is a five, seven, nine, and twelve night option. If you are booked on the seven night cruise, you must do the seven night option though. Just something to note. Imagine being on a cruise and every time you step off the ship, you have an Adventure Guide leading the way! Typically at most ports you can choose an excursion and that’s what you do. On this Adventure your full day is planned! You even have some special exclusive events for just people booked on this Adventure on the ship. These also book fast and they limit the number of people just like on an Adventure by Disney. The price for the seven night option is $2399 per adult and $2279 per child.  An example of an itinerary for one of the days is : In Naples you will do a private tour of the Isle of Capri. You also visit a farm and learn how mozzarella and olive oil are made and you get a private pizza making lesson! How fun!

Hi Mamas, Did you know there are only 16 Disney cruises left departing from Galveston? The Disney Wonder will make its way to Galveston, Texas in September and on September 28th the first of the remaining cruises will set sail. I have listed the remaining dates, itineraries, and starting prices as of publish time for your convenience. For my Texas clients, this is a great time to check out the Disney Cruise line! You can easily drive to the port and save the airfare. There are a variety of itineraries to choose from this fall.

 
The first is the 7 night Bahamian sailing. It will stop at Key West, Castaway Cay, and Nassau. I think any cruise that stops at Castaway Cay is a great option. You can’t beat sitting on the beach of Disney’s private island. 
The remaining dates for this itinerary are September 28th, October 12, October 26th , November 9th, December 7th, and December 14th. October 26th will include Halloween! Later this week Chick Debbie will give you the inside scoop on Halloween cruises.  
Most of these sail dates start at the $910 per person. But December 7th still has rooms starting at $699 per person! This is the adult price and children are even less. All category of rooms are left with the exception of October 12th.  For the October 12th sailing, the concierge level rooms are all booked.
The second itinerary is the 7 night Caribbean sailing.  It will stop at Falmouth, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. If your desire is to see more of the Caribbean, this is your best option. Falmouth is a new destination on the itineraries out of Galveston. The dates for this itinerary are: October 5, October 19th, November 2, November 16,  and November 30th. This sailing starts at $699 per person and every room category is available on every sailing!
For all sailings between November 12 and January 4th, the ship will transform into a winer wonderland with a massive tree-lighting, dance parties, Santa and his elves, and more! If you’ve visited Disneyland or Walt Disney World during the holidays, you know that Disney takes them to a whole new level!

The third itinerary is similar to the 7 night Bahamian one above but just goes in a different order of stops. There is only one sailing, November 23, for this one. This is over Thanksgiving week and does come with a premium price as a result.  It starts at $1491 per person and all room categories are available.

The fourth itinerary is the 6 night Holiday cruise that departs on December 21st. Spending Christmas on a Disney cruise ship? Thank you Santa! This will stop at Cozumel and Grand Cayman. The inside staterooms are all sold out. The price starts at $1728 per person.

And the final itinerary is the 4 night Caribbean cruises with a stop in Cozumel.  December 27th and December 31st are the last 2013 options with this itinerary. The price starts at $1296 per person.
The final cruise out of Galveston will be on January 4, 2014 and it is a four night Caribbean cruise stopping in Cozumel. It is only starting at $836 per person! This sailing already has the concierge level rooms booked but there are plenty of other rooms left.
Things to remember about the Disney Cruise Line-all of your entertainment, food, sodas, etc are included in the price. The only thing not included is your gratuities, alcohol, and any excursions you opt to do. It really is the cruise line without any pricing surprises.

Mama Monday : Spa time on a Disney Cruise

Hi Mamas, welcome back to Mama Monday! In keeping with our two week all cruise theme, I am taking you to the spas on the Disney cruise ships!

On the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream, the spa is Senses Spa and Salon. I recently toured the one on the Dream and I have chosen what we will be doing on our Disney cruise! On the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder the spa is Vista Spa and Salon. At all of the spas you can enjoy a variety of services including massages, manicures, pedicures, facials,  wraps, etc.  The salons offer cuts, shampoos, color services,  and updos for that special date night or occasion.

Spa Villa 
On all four ships, there is a Spa Villa Treatment Package. This is the total indulgence and something worth splurging on!  The spa villa has a spa treatment room, an open air shower, private verandah, a whirlpool outside on the deck,  a tea ceremony, and a foot cleansing ceremony. Depending upon the package, it lasts anywhere from 105 minutes for a single session up to 155 minutes for the couples sessions. You choose from a list of options of massages and facials for your spa treatment and then you are given some privacy to enjoy the whirlpool and the private verandah. 
 
You can add strawberries and champagne to your experience as well for an extra charge.  The couples sessions start at $449 and go up to $589. Total splurge but totally worth it for all that you receive. 
If you are wanting to enjoy the spa but not quite splurge to that extent, you can visit the Rainforest Room for a much lower fee per person. This is on a daily use rate, so you can pay for one day or more than one day. The Rainforest is aromatherapy steam rooms or sauna styled like a Roman bath. Relax on warm tiled chairs and enhale the aromatic vapors for a truly blissful experience.
Both of these options are for guests 18 and up. On the Fantasy and Dream there is a teen spa called Chill. It is for teens ages 13-17 and offers manicures, pedicures, massages, and facials among other selections.
With the incredible cruise offers for the fall, plus my special per person on board credit offers, you have the perfect opportunity to indulge in a spa experience on a Disney Cruise ship! Happy Sailing!!
