When will we get detailed itinerary?

HI,
We are going on our first cruise - a 4 night DCL Med cruise in August. When will we get a detailed itinerary for our cruise? E.g. things like whether there is "Pirate / Tropical" night, formal night etc - so we know what clothes to bring! Also, what activities are going to be available on the ship.

As DCL has never done a 4 night cruise in the Med before I can't even look at previous ones.

Secondly, how / when do you book onboard activites, e.g. I read about a galley tour, mixology classes, etc. I assume these are pretty popular so may need to book early?

Thanks

I'm sure someone who knows more than me will respond soon. I can't comment on the nights, but you get your dinner rotation once you board. You cannot book things like mixology and other tastings until you board. Book them ASAP when you board as they do fill up.

Along this same topic, is Guest Services crazy busy that first day? I'd like to sign up for mixology and Tea with Alice if they are offered, but wondered if I will be spending a good portion of day one in line.

Me and Dh are also on this cruise..yay!
Pirate night is day 2 (Wed) Disney put this under "my cruise activities".
I don't think there will be a formal night as such as they don't have them on short cruises. There will maybe be a "dress up night" which I would guess will be on the sea day but it is just a guess. I would just email Disney if you want to know for sure, they usually get back to you within 24hrs.

Regarding signing up for those activities, do so when you board at GS. We haven't found it to be very busy as you board because most people are heading to lunch.

I would recommend checking out old navigators for the Med to get an idea of what could be offered on port days & at while at sea. Even though they haven't offered a 4-night before, that will give you some idea of the possibilities.

Cool! How do you know about the Pirate night by the way? Did you email them?

Thanks all!

If you log on to DCL website(as if you were completing the online check-in) go to the section to book spa, dining and excursions and the pirate deck party is listed there.

On our latest B2B cruise (Bahamian not Med, but the procedures for booking are pretty much the same), the mixology and other tastings were booked in one of the bars. We were the only ones there - no line up.

On the second leg, the bar was having problems with their computer so they sent us to guest services to sign up. I think we waited 2 minutes.

Some of the tours you don't need to sign up for, you just show up at an appointed place at a particular time. The Navigator will give you the particulars.

Realize that they don't offer so many options on 4 nights. I do not think they offer Tea with Alice or Mixology. So don't get your heart set on something. You should look at the navigators for the 4 night cruises here in the US, that might give you a better idea of what might be offered.
