Ho, ho, ho! If you’re following @DisneyCruise on Twitter, you probably saw Santa Claus was spotted onboard this summer. What may have surprised you is what he was doing…

But even this jolly man needs time away to recharge! His visit brought a smile to lots of faces, including some of your favorite Disney pals. We managed to capture a little of his fun on video, so sit back and enjoy this exclusive look at Santa’s summer vacation on a Disney cruise

Even if you missed Santa this summer, you have plenty of chances to hang out with him onboard this winter. Starting in early November, he’s visiting each of our ships for our Very Merrytime Cruises through the end of December. We’ll be sharing more details on these cruises soon, but in the meantime, you can learn about them on our website at this link and on Twitter with #DCLHolidays.


  • We sailed on the Disney Magic in November 2010 and when we were disembarking, the staff was rolling out trays full of poinsettias. At that point, we were determined to experience a Merrytime Cruise. When the Fantasy was built, we were aboard for its very 1st Christmas cruise in December 2013. The decorations were amazing and it was incredible for us all to wake up on the ship Christmas morning! We will definitely be taking another holiday cruise soon.

  • This was adorable! Love that Santa had a fish extender. Love captain Hook jacking the naught/nice list and making corrections. Love him playing shuffle board. LOVE The sunglass “tan” at the end. And so much more. If someone can tell me where I left my money tree I will gladly book a holiday cruise!

  • My first cruise ever was on the Disney Magic for my 40th birthday, which happened to be in December! It was the best birthday ever!! Everything from the decorations to the food was just amazing. I can’t wait to go on another Disney cruise!

  • Our Christmas cruise on the Disney Magic was the best Christmas we’ve ever had! The decorations, the activities, adornments as well as the excitement at Castaway Cay are like nothing else on this earth.

    Not to be missed by anyone, I highly recommend sailing during the Christmas season!

    Thank you,

  • We will be sailing on the Fantasy Nov 29. Even with 18 Disney cruises under our belts we’ve never seen the ships decorated for any holidays so we’re REALLY looking forward to seeing the Fantasy and Castaway Cay decorated for Christmas!!!! Can’t wait!!! Hope they have some Christmas cookies on board:)
