Dolphin Spotting—Did you know dolphins sometimes frolic in the waters around the ship? The best time to spot dolphins is within the first hour of leaving a port, particularly as you’re leaving Port Canaveral, Miami, and West Coast ports. For optimum spotting, you’ll want to be looking over either the port or starboard side of the ship, toward the bow. Dolphins like to hitch rides on the bow waves of moving ships. We recommend the big windows on deck 3 or outside on deck 4 for the best views, but deck 10/12 also offers good views. Taking pleasure in spotting dolphins is an old tradition—ancient Greek sailors considered dolphin escorts a good omen for a smooth voyage.

Talent Show/Karaoke—If you’ve got an exhibitionist streak, you may enjoy the opportunity to strut your stuff in a talent show or karaoke session. Guest talent shows aren’t available on all cruises, but we have spotted them on the 7-night and longer cruises—they are typically held in the adult nightclub on the last day of the cruise. Look for an announcement in the Personal Navigator regarding sign-ups. Crew talent shows are hilarious—if you spot one of these in your Personal Navigator, make it a point to attend. Karaoke is much more common and is available for most age groups. Of course, watching other people perform can be almost as much fun as doing it yourself! Studio D (all ships) is home to frequent karaoke sessions.

Meeting Internet Friends—You may have friends on your voyage and not even know it. If you’re a member of an Internet community, just let others know when you’re sailing and try to arrange a “meet” or two while you’re onboard. Four good places to hook up with fellow cruisers are PassPorter’s message boards (http://www.passporterboards.com), DIS (http://www.disboards.com), Cruise Critic (http://www.cruisecritic.com), and Facebook.

Learning More—Want to know the latest inside scoop on Disney Cruise Line? The single best place to pick up tidbits is at the Navigator’s Series Captain’s Corner session (see page 215) where the Captain answers cruiser questions. Beyond this, chatting with crew members can yield interesting news, but you’ll need to take their unofficial buzz with a grain of sea salt.

‘Til We Meet Again—On the last night of your cruise, the Disney characters and Walt Disney Theatre performers put on a sweet little show along the grand staircase in the lobby atrium. The characters “meet and greet” after the show so you can get that last “kiss goodnight.” It’s typically held at 10:15 pm, but check your Personal Navigator, there may be a less-crowded afternoon show.

Restroom Tours—No, we’re not joking! Public restrooms throughout the ships sport elaborately themed designs, from elegant to whimsical. Especially noteworthy are the restrooms in the Dream Class ships’ adult entertainment districts.
