Learn Some Tricks of the Trade From Veteran Pirates
Chances are you know someone who has already experienced a Pirate Night on the Disney Cruise. Ask them to regale you with tales of their seafaring adventures to get a sense of what activities your family will enjoy the most. Quiz them on everything from what grub they loved to tricks to get the most out of this exciting evening at sea! YouTube is also a great spot to check out blogs of other families enjoying the Pirate festivities.
Get a Pirate Makeover
At the Pirates League aboard your DIsney Cruise Line ship, you can get your very own Pirate Makeover! Choose from beards, bandanas, swords, scars, earrings and eye patches to create that special Pirate Night Look. There’s even an Empress package where pirate princesses can get a dress, shimmering makeup, face gems, nail polish, earrings, eye patches and more!
