Best of the Boat
Save one afternoon at sea for an all-out splurge: the Spa Villa Treatment at the Vista Spa & Salon. Bliss begins with a gentle foot cleansing and a 30-minute soak in a jetted bubble bath. After a massage or facial, you'll relax on a plush chaise longue for a quiet, calming tea service.
Make reservations for an upscale dinner or elaborate brunch at Palo, the adults-only fancy restaurant. The small surcharge―$10 per person for dinner or brunch, $5 for high tea―is the best deal on the boat.
Head to the atrium lobby to snap a photo with your favorite character in front of the Christmas tree. Then join a gingerbread house class, and let the kids have cake―for breakfast.
Throw Caution to the Tradewinds
Lose yourself in the magic of the moment and the spirit of the season. Laugh. Dance. Swim. Nap. Eat. Give in to your every Christmas wish, because this is what memories are made of.
It's often possible to find availability on a Disney cruise this month, especially in early- to mid-December. The week between Christmas and New Year's is typically more limited.
Choosing a Stateroom
A seven-day cruise starts at $649 per person for a basic inside room. But it's worth the extra cost to upgrade to a deluxe ocean-view room ($899) or a deluxe stateroom with outdoor balcony ($1,249). Visit www.disneycruise.com, or call 1-800-951-3532 for more information.
