    On the 7 night Eastern I just got off Peter the cruise director said they did it between St Martin and St Thomas because we had plenty of time to get there so the ship would be moving slower. Take a look at your itinerary and see what night you will be going the shortest distance and that may be pirate night.

    I believe it is night 5. We originally had it booked for the Magic out of Galveston, but just changed to the Fantasy. I know it showed up in my cruise activities.

    Sign in to your reservation, on the left you will see "My Cruise Activities", at the bottom of day one it will say "Sailaway Party" Look at that area on each day to see if the pirate party is listed. I am sailing out of Galveston on Feb 1 for an 8 night and the pirate party is not listed for me yet.

    We're doing the Magic cruise out of Galveston at the end of September. I bet Pirate night will be on night 5 (Costa Maya) since the distance between Costa Maya and Cozumel is so short AND we have to be back on board the ship so early that day.

    Anybody have any idea which nights will be formal and semiformal, considering that our days at sea are our first two full days and our last full day?

    We are on the Oct 13 sailing from Galveston. My guess is that formal night will be on Sunday night and Semi on Thursday. :goodvibes

    Just keep checking your cruise activities page and it should show up eventually.



    No clue on the formal and semi formal nights yet, but if you call a dcl representative they might be able to answer that (might have to wait until closer date).

    Are you on the sept 22nd out of galveston? Is so, come join us on our cruise meet thread!:cool1:

    I'm on the first sailing, Sept 22. Before booking excursions, Palo, etc., I had my travel agent call DCL to ask about Pirate Night. She was told it would be on the 25th. Same day as Grand Cayman. pirate:

    Does anyone know what Terminal Disney is using? Will Boarding be assigned like it is at Port Canaveral?

    I checked in this morning and chose my port arrival time. Who knows if it will be enforced, but I have the earliest arrival time anyway! 90 days!!

    Thanks for letting us know!

    That would have been my second guess, since we get into Costa Maya SO late the next day, thought that might be why...

    I'm on the Sept. 29 cruise, but I'm sure they'll keep them standardized.

    Thank you for the response, and congratulations on 90 days. We hit our 90 days on July 8. Not much longer. Thanks again.
