Check these 47 tasks off your list to make sure you get a taste of the variety of fun cruise events, shows, special spots on the ship, and more. A few of these apply to only some of the ships and cruise itineraries, so that might just mean you'll have to put a few Disney Cruises on your bucket list to complete everything!
