Stage shows not to miss

We are on a 3 night Dream cruise in March with two boys 12 & 14. Wondering about stage shows which would be of interest to them. I hear Believe and Golden Mickeys seem to be favs with Villains hit or miss. Will be a feat to bring them to any shows so 1st one better be good. Which would you recommend for this age/gender? Thanks.

Disney Dreams. *Do they have this on the Dream or Fantasy?*

Ann Marie and Peter Pan. Gets me teary every time.

Our last cruise with my DD13 we saw it again. It was so cute at the end my daughter teared up too. It was such a lovely moment I don't always get with a 13 year old. I'll never forget it. We talk about that sometimes. She said "I don't know why I cried." I said "I do."

They do NOT have Disney Dreams on the new ships, "Believe" is in its place.

I much prefer Dreams after having seen it again last week for the first time in 2 years. Believe is a little too critical of having a scientific mind. I'm all for dreaming and believing in magic but it was a little sour for us. I'm not sure it'd be a win with most teens? Hopefully some parents will chime in for you.

We also enjoy Villains Tonight! I'd choose that and Golden Mickeys, especially with boys. One for the humor and the other for the "Classic Disney" and music.

We never miss any of the shows. Even DS19 who has been cruising since he was 6 likes them.

You'll have to decide for yourself! A lot of people love Believe, but that was the one show that neither DH, DD or myself cared for. At all. Didn't like the music or the storyline. Can't imagine teen boys being thrilled by that one. Villains, on the other hand, I think would really appeal to boys. That was DH's favorite. Golden Mickeys was the favorite for DD and me.

Thanks everyone. Looks like we will see all shows. As usual, Disney seems to have first rate productions and I'm sure there's something for everyone.

We were on the Jan. 12 Fantasy cruise and Aladdin was our favorite show. That being said, we enjoyed all of the shows and didn't want to miss any.
