Disney Cruise Line
Disney has long been a name synonymous with family fun, and the ships of the Disney Cruise Line are no exception. The Disney Cruise Line fleet have so many different onboard activities that there is plenty to do for every member of the family. Disney has four different cruise lines including Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, and tours different locations across the globe, such as the Caribbean, Alaska, Canada, Europe, and Disney’s own Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.
Amenities Onboard Disney Cruise Line
Disney ensures that the staterooms onboard are large enough to accommodate families. The rooms include a large bed for parents and bunk beds for the kids, or guests can select joining rooms for added space. The rooms have plenty of storage room for all those little extras, and a split bathroom to eliminate waiting time. The ships have regular state rooms, one- or two-bedroom suites, or deluxe suites, some with a window or deck showcasing the ocean. All Disney’s main characters can be found welcoming and entertaining children at different locations throughout the ship. Disney Cruise Lines have several swimming pools onboard, waterslides, a large outdoor movie theater, spa treatments, and an arcade.
Activities onboard Disney Cruise Line
Families will never run out of things to do onboard the Disney Cruise Line because every day is packed full of activities that are fun for the whole family. Professional musicals like Aladdin, Toy Story and Cinderella are performed by Disney’s most-loved characters. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a favorite among the kids, and is where they can be made over to look like a fairy-tale princess or treasure-hunting pirate. The older kids have a club of their own, with activities geared toward their particular age. Tweens ages 11-14 can attend the Edge program, while teens ages 14-17 can go to the Vibe. Parents can even spend some alone time at the spa or go dancing at the nightclub, while the kids are watched by trained professionals. Families can have fun together playing any of the dozens of family games held during the trip or dancing at the D Lounge family dance club.
Three meals, snacks, soda, coffee and tea are available throughout the day, and are included in the travel fare for Disney Cruise Lines. There are four separate dining methods for families to choose from for each meal including the quick service, room service, casual dining and the main dining room. Quick services and room services are available 24-hours a day and can be used to fill-in between meals or allow families to eat in their rooms. Casual dining options can be found both inside and out on deck, and includes the Beach Blanket Buffet, Topsider Buffet and Cabanas. Each Disney Cruise Line has three separate main dining rooms, such as the Animator’s Palate, Lumiere’s, Triton’s and Parrot Cay. Each day the family’s personal wait staff will help the family “rotate” between the three restaurants to provide the best overall dining experience. Adults-only dining is available in the Palo restaurant allowing couples to have a special evening alone.
