As to be expected, the Disney cruise experience is magical from their ships’ horns, which play the first seven notes of “When You Wish Upon a Star,” and a few other Disney tunes, to the Disney characters you meet onboard and on their private island.

Disney currently has four ships in their fleet – Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, and Disney Fantasy – and they plan to add three more in the next few years. While they are similar in size and capacity (2,400 – 4,000 guests, currently) the interiors, restaurants, and entertainment venues of each ship are unique. Plus, these family-friendly ships do not have an onboard casino, unlike other cruise ships.

Disney counselors are available to supervise kids, youth, and teens in activities designed just for these age groups, both onboard and on their private island, Castaway Cay.

Where Disney Cruises

As with most major cruise lines, Disney sails around the globe to many favorite destinations: the Bahamas, Western and Eastern Caribbean, Southern Caribbean, Northern Europe, Norwegian Fjords, Mediterranean, British Isles, Bermuda, Alaska, Canadian Coast, Mexican Riviera, Baja, Panama Canal, Pacific Coast, and Transatlantic.

They also offer Specialty Cruises, such as Star Wars Day at Sea, Marvel Day at Sea, Halloween on the High Seas, and Very Merrytime Cruises.

And with departure ports located around the world, there’s a Disney cruise ship waiting nearby for your next adventure.

Dining

Disney’s dining experience is unique: there are three Main Dining rooms, and you and your servers rotate to each one on different nights.

In addition, parents can enjoy a night out at the Palo Italian restaurant  (located onboard all four Disney ships), or at Remy, which features fine French cuisine. Remy is available on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy ships. Both specialty dining venues require an extra fee.

And of course on all ships there’s an array of casual dining, snacks, and treats available, such as sandwiches, wraps, salads, pizza, burgers, and ice cream.

Entertainment

There’s plenty to entertain the entire family on a Disney cruise, from award-winning live productions and character meet and greets, to open-air deck parties full of that Disney Magic.

Disney also  has many nightclubs and lounges reserved only for adults. Dance, listen to live music and entertainment, or just relax and sip your favorite wine or champagne.

Skyline at The District on the Disney Dream is an ever-changing venue that celebrates some of the world’s most famous cities. Tall “windows” along one wall give adult guests a birds-eye view of stunning city skylines such as Paris, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Chicago and Hong Kong. The lounge even serves signature cocktails inspired by the featured cities. (Photo: Disney)

In these specialized areas, kids concoct creations in an interactive science lab, conduct crazy experiments, express their creativity through art projects, stretch their culinary skills and participate in other hands-on activities.

Activities

For kids ages 6 months through 17 years, there are activities and areas designed for specific age groups.

  • “It’s a Small World” nursery provides a safe and fun place for the youngest kids, ages 6 months to 3 years
  • “Oceaneer Club” and “Oceaneer Lab” is for kids ages 3 – 12
  • The “Edge” is where tweens ages 11-14 have their space to meet, hangout, watch TV, play video games, and more

Adults can enjoy the exercise center and sports areas or take advantage of the onboard spa and salon services. Plus “Quiet Cove Pool” is the adults-only retreat that offers a tranquil area to get away from it all.

Private Island

Castaway Cay has something for everyone to enjoy, with several beaches and lagoons. Water activities are abundant, such as snorkeling (with Disney underwater surprises to find), a sports beach, Pelican Plunge (a floating platform with water slides), boat and bike rentals, a family beach, and water play just for the little ones in Scuttle’s Cove.

Teens can hang out in the Teen Hideout, and there is an adults-only retreat called Serenity Bay, which offers open-air massages, frozen specialty drinks, and  open-air BBQ for when you’re hungry.

It’s always a great day at Castaway Cay!
