Disney Cruise Line Castaway Club eCompass – Winter 2013

The Winter 2013 edition of the Disney Cruise Line eCompass is now available for all Castaway Club members.  This, the second interactive issue celebrates the current holiday season, highlights the relaunch of the Disney Magic, announces the Halloween on the High Seas Cruises for 2014, and takes a look into the future at the early 2015 itineraries.

To help celebrate the current holiday season Disney included a few downloadables.  The first is a set of three digital picture frame borders that you can either digitally add your photos or uses a border in a scrapbooking project.

There is a Holiday eCard inspired by the Mickey Mouse statue in the snorkeling lagoon at Castaway Cay.

The coolest downloadable is a Holiday paper craft that includes Captain Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and a Disney Cruise Line ship among other Christmas decorations and the snowman and snow-woman  from Castaway Cay.

I will not take all the fun out of exploring the interactive eCompass, but I do want to point out the custom port of call maps that you can print out for Key West, Nassau, St Thomas/St John, and Cozumel.

    Thanks for the info! I will say that I am annoyed they aren’t starting the “Very Merritime Cruises” until later in November. A big part of my reasoning for picking the dates for our next cruise in November of 2014 was because I wanted holiday decorations and activities.

    I’m trying to download those eframes to make a magnet to put on my cabin door when I’m on the cruise Dec 28-jan 4, anyone know how to get a downloadable version of the eframes?

    We’ll be on the Fantasy in October. Do you have any idea which day they will have the Halloween Party? I’m thinking it may be the day before or the day after pirate night??

    I’m feeling dumb but I can’t figure out how to download the mickey/minnie and snowman papercrafts. The download link only links to a larger JPG image. What am I missing?
