« back to Dining Onboard
We are cruising from Venice in July (our first time!) and I wondered what theme nights we will have, tin order to assist with my packing? Also, as we will be flying in from Australia and I wanted to confirm if anything is sent to our homes beforehand?

Welcome aboard, Sharon! You're in for a spectacular vacation in the Mediterranean!
While attire rotations haven't yet been finalized for this summer, I can make a pretty good guess that you'll have the same attire nights that were scheduled onboard last summer's 12-night sailings in Europe. On those, guests experienced one Formal Night, one Semi-Formal night and ten Cruise Casual Nights. Besides attire, each night will have a themed menu like Master Chef, Savor the World, or Flavors of Greece (try the Greek mixed grill if it's offered - yum!). And, don't forget Pirate Night! On this fun night, guests dress up like pirates in anything from full costumes to more simple pirate accessories, including the pirate bandana that all guests will receive. Then, head up on the pool deck for pirate games, trivia, shows, and dance parties. What a fun night!
Disney Cruise Line usually sends guests a packet of cruise documents a few weeks before the cruise date, so keep an eye out for those before you leave home. In addition, if you're a first time cruiser with Disney, 75 days prior to sail date you'll be able to log-in to your reservation online to begin booking those fun extras like Port Adventures and Adult Exclusive Dining. Take the time to browse your favorites now so you're ready to book as soon as your window to do so opens. Remember that guests who have previously cruised with Disney will be able to book 90 or more days out, so you'll want to book yours as soon as you're able to ensure you get the adventures you'd like before they fill up.

Let me know how else I can help, Sharon!
