Cruising Through The Holidays--Merchandise Preview

“Cruising Through The Holidays” could be anyone’s motto, but this year, it is Disney Cruise Line’s theme for merchandise on board all four ships from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, 2012.  Since we will be sailing during the holidays this year, it was great to get a sneak peek at merchandise offerings that we will find on the ship.

The “Cruising Through The Holidays” logo will be offered on t-shirts, mugs, etc.  I’m hoping for an art print and ornament to go with our collection—click here to read more about what we collect.

Speaking of ornaments, the above design will be featured on ornaments for purchase and as I understand, is available on the ships now, as many folks purchase a commemorative ornament to bring home.  You can even have the Captain sign the ornament during signing events held on-board—click here to read more about Captain signing events.

Want to purchase some Disney Cruise Line holiday inspired sleepwear while sailing?  No problem.  DCL has just the ticket with a collection of flannel sleepwear. 

We are bringing our own for sleeping and photo purposes.  I found flannel Mickey PJ’s for the husband and son last winter on sale and those along with my bright red Mickey robe and slippers are already on the packing list for our trip.

This isn’t our first holiday time cruise, as we have sailed over New Year’s on the Disney Magic in Dec. 2009/Jan. 2010.  This will be our first holiday on the Disney Dream and our first Christmas at sea.

To commemorate the occasion, we had the above shirts made.  And, it has already been decided that our Santa hats will be worn with these shirts for our boarding photo.  The boy asked to bring his reindeer headband, too.  We all get into the fun and spirit of the holidays!
