usually only when leaving Port Canaveral and upon arrival into a port. Special occassions I guess would account for more, but in the 5 cruises we have been on with DCL it was just leaving Port Canaveral and arriving in each port

we had sort of a horn war with a Costa ship leaving St. Thomas. They kept blowing theirs over ours so Capt. Tom just kept going until you could hear it clearly. Lots of yelling and hooting from the Costa ship during and after it.

We were on the Wonder in 2002 and we absolutely loved it that the ship played "when you wish upon a star". They played it quite frequently on our cruise. Always before leaving a port or passing a ship. They also play a little chiming noise thats supposed to be "magic pixie dust" sound before the captain makes his announcements. Its a nice special touch...Disney magic as usual.

Yes, the horn was quite interesting. The other thing I want to post is, we were on another cruise ship, and we had docked. It was early a.m., and we had an aft cabin. Well, I got up and flew out onto our balcony, only to be greated by the passengers from the Disney ship, and Goofy painting the front of the ship. The Disney ship was docked immediately behind us. I promptly slipped back into the cabin and put my bathrobe on.

I guess it varies. I heard it quite often on my first cruise, and rarely on my second.


I love it so much, I have my PC rigged at work to play it every time I get an email from Cruise Critic.

When we were on the Magic, it played at noon every day. If you are out at the pool deck it is load. After the first day, I made sure to keep an eye on the clock when noon was approaching, so I could be prepared to cover my ears.

Thanks for the link. Makes me want to sail Disney again.

Now if I could only find the link to the QM2's horn (from the original Queen Mary).

Reference QM2's horn - no, it is not a tune, but is very melodious, and they say it can be heard over 10 miles (read loud!).
