|Anna, Olaf and Elsa welcome you aboard.|
Before you start rolling your eyes, are you really that surprised that Frozen characters are coming to Disney Cruise Line ships?
I'm surprised it took this long.
Beginning this summer, Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff will appear on select Disney Magic and Disney Wonder cruises to Europe and Alaska (the Magic has Norwegian itineraries--go figure). Meet and greets will be just a small part of the icy shipboard transformations. Here's the official rundown of daily activities from Disney:
- Anna’s Chase for the Chocolate scavenger hunt for those who share Anna’s sense of adventure, with a special surprise for finishing the game.
- Do You Want to Build a Snowman activity where kids take on Elsa’s magical powers to make snow and ice.
- The Maypole Swirl and Twirl for families to learn a traditional Scandinavian dance spinning and braiding giant ribbons.
- Frozen themed dining experience, including a menu inspired by traditional Nordic fare and special dishes inspired by the film.
On the Disney Magic, the original stage production of Disney Dreams...An Enchanted Classic in the Walt Disney Theatre will have a new musical segment devoted to Frozen that includes "Let it Go," "For the First Time in Forever" and "In Summer."
|The Disney Magic cruises to Norway.|
During seven and nine-night voyages in Norway beginning June 6th, when the Magic docks in Alesund, guests can choose an excursion to explore a storybook village with Anna and Elsa as their guides.
Caribbean cruises have not been excluded either. On itineraries that include a stop at DCL's private island, Castaway Cay, guests will be able to enjoy special Frozen-themed beverages at Olaf's Summertime Freeze bar.
