Disney News: Holiday season cruises recognize many religious celebrations

If you’re amazed at more than 1,016 feet of garlands, 66 holiday sprays and more than 40 trees decorating one Disney cruise ship, the onboard holiday season extends beyond the décor. Disney’s unique holiday programming doesn’t only cover activities and events, but tropical, individual and religious celebrations as well:

Christmas Morning

Even Santa Claus visits Disney’s Cruise ships. Children will wake on Christmas morning to see cookies and milk and many surprises by the tree in the atrium lobby tree. There’s a midnight mass on Christmas Eve and services are also held on Christmas Day.

Hanukkah

Disney Cruise ships recognize other holiday celebrations leading up to the 25th. Each day, from December 8th till the 16th, Hanukkah services will be held on the cruise ships.

Kwanzaa

The week-long Kwanzaa celebration that observes African-American heritage and culture is also honored on the cruise ships where storytellers share tales of this special occasion.

Snow for non-believers at Castaway Cay

If you’ve never experienced snow flurries on a tropical island, even Disney can make it snow in the Caribbean! When Disney cruise ships dock at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private Bahamian island, they’re greeted with a Christmas tree adorned with decorations and gifts, and Disney characters dressed in a holiday theme. Along with carolers, twinkling Christmas trees and holiday-themed crafts, guests will even see “snow” flurries collect on the ground!
