DCL Email 20190125 Mickey Mickey's Sail A Wave Deck Party

At this time, we are unaware if this is a fleet wide change, limited to the Classic ships, or exclusive to the Disney Wonder. What I can tell you is that the email sent was specifically for the Disney Wonder’s 4-Night San Juan to Port Canaveral Cruise departing Puerto Rico on February 3, 2019.

    …and of course, I am sailing on the cruise right before that one. That said, I know quite a few people are doing back to back (Jan. 27 and Feb.3rd) so it will be interesting for them to experience two different sail away parties. The sail-away on the Classic ships was getting a bit old (soundtrack, overall feel) so glad to hear that this is potentially getting a refresh. The current Dream ships version is somewhat more modern and catchier to start with…

    My son and I were just talking yesterday about our upcoming cruise and he said to me, “We probably don’t need to keep going to the sail away parties.” I can’t wait to tell him about this. We leave in 11 weeks out of San Diego for a special 2 night mother/son cruise. : )

      Grtompkins, I’m on the April 19th 2 night out of SD. Maybe we’ll see you. 🙂 Either way, I’m excited for any kind of party as long as I’m on a DCL cruise!

    This is good news. After years of the same sailing away show, after our last cruise, I suggested that a new and updated sailing away show would be nice, as it had lost its specialness with the same show every time.

    I hope that it retains the excitement of sailing that the Magic/Wonder celebration has, rather than the ‘commercial’ feel that the Dream/Fantasy sail away party has.
