Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
We (My husband, 5 year old daughter and myself) have just booked our first DC on Disney Magic 3 day cruise to Bahamas in February. Are there any specific things we should make sure we don't miss while we are on our cruise?

- Ahoy Raquel!
Congratulations on your first voyage onboard the most magical cruise line on the high seas! The Disney Magic holds a very special place in my heart as it was the first ship my family enjoyed in the Disney fleet!
When you set sail on your Bahamian adventure in February, you will want to pay close attention to your cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator. It will be your go-to guide for all the ship's happenings and will be delivered each evening for the following day. One of my favorite activities not to miss is the Princess Gathering (meet and greet with several princesses for autographs and pictures) in the Grand Lobby Atrium. This is a popular event (usually held twice) with all the young princesses aboard so do line up early! Another do not miss event is Mickey's Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party and the Buccaneer Blast Firework Spectacular! A Caribbean-themed dinner will be served, pirate games will be played, the characters will be in their pirate attire (be sure to bring some along too), a deck party with lots of pirate characters,and a stunning firework show will light up the night sky on this fun-filled evening! You will also want to make sure your daughter spends time exploring the newly re-imaged Oceaneer Club and Lab! Andy' Room, Pixie Hollow, Marvel's Avengers Academy, and the Mickey Mouse Club are the amazing new areas to experience! While your daughter is enjoying the youth clubs be sure to take some time to relax in the adult-only area, Quiet Cove and enjoy the night life in After Hours!
I'm about out of room so my final suggestions are to enjoy the wonderful Broadway-style entertainment, take a ride on Twist 'n' Spout and the AquaDunk, ride bikes on Castaway Cay and make lots of magical memories!
If I can help you further, please write back, Raquel! I'll be on the Disney Magic next week so I may have a few more suggestions for you once I return!
