Overview of Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Lines offers an experience like no other vacation you've ever been on! With luxurious ships, unique entertainment, top-of-the-line service, and delicious cuisine, Disney Cruise Lines are loaded with all of the best features you could ever want! World-class hospitality is standard on every cruise, and they pay attention to detail so that your trip is as comfortable as possible. Disney Cruises are geared towards kids as well as adults - they like to take care of their youngest cruisers! These ships all have babysitting services and nurseries, and will take care of infants that are 12 weeks old and up. They have the longest operating hours and lowest rates of any cruise line, and even offer a service, which allows you to order your favorite brand name baby products for your youngsters. Disney cruises' legendary service also serves the entire family - you can enjoy rotational dining: visit one of three themed restaurants on the first night of the Disney cruise, and meet their serving staff. Every other night, guests rotate to the other restaurants - and the same staff goes with them to ensure that your personal needs and requests are attended to just the way you like them! This is a stellar service, because staff members become familiar with each guests' particular needs and preferences, and thus can make the cruise a more enjoyable and personal experience!

Disney Cruise: Dining

Family dining is a flexible activity on Disney Cruise Lines. They make it easy for the whole family to eat together - room service is complimentary, there are three uniquely themed restaurants on each ship, and they also offer quick-service locations for your kids' favorite foods! Enjoy "Dine & Play" service, where you can enjoy dinner together but your kids' meals will be served at a faster pace so they can leave the table and enjoy the activities offered at the Oceaneer Club and the Oceaneer Labs! The kids will be picked up and escorted by Youth Activities Counselors so you parents can enjoy your meal at your leisure. Disney also features a complimentary coffee, tea, and soda service - stop by the 24-hour beverage stations!

Disney Cruise: Amenities

Staterooms on Disney Cruise Lines are designed with comfort in mind. They feature extra storage, split bathrooms, curtains for added privacy, sofa beds, televisions that feature in-room Disney movies, and housekeeping provides extremely attentive service to ensure that your stay goes smoothly! The ships also offer adjoining rooms for larger families and groups!

A Disney Cruise is Just That - Disney

Each ship has all of the glitz and glamour that you enjoy from Disney theme parks. Character greetings are just one of the ways they make you feel like you're at a floating theme park! Enjoy Goofy's pool, which plays Disney movies on the Ariel View jumbo screen; there are also themed deck parties with Disney Characters to interact with and fireworks displays! Each night there is a Broadway-style original Disney live show that you won't experience on any other cruise line, and first-run feature films too. There's the Studio Sea, where you can experience family fun with karaoke, TV-style game shows and more! The best part is, all Disney Cruises with destinations in the Bahamas and Caribbean stop at Castaway Cay, a private island paradise with beaches and great adventures for everyone!

Entertainment on a Disney Cruise

Disney Cruises have the best kids entertainment available at sea. Since it's a Disney Cruise, expect Disney-themed kids' activities that your children and teens will love! The Disney Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab is geared towards kids between the age of 3-12, and has Disney storytelling combined with a variety of activities that are supervised by specially trained counselors. Kids can do-si-do with Snow White, learn to be pirates with Captain Hook, have a slumber party with Goofy, and more! The kids' areas also are open late, so parents can enjoy themselves until 2:30 AM knowing that their kids are well cared for and occupied! There's also a great spot for teens to hang out, with activities like karaoke, video game challenges, trivia, dance parties and more - and it's open til 2:30 AM so they can feel like adults! For the adults, Disney offers so many ways to enjoy some time to recharge your batteries. The Vista Spa and Salon is a place where you can enjoy adult-only solitude including a couples' massage, and the Quiet Cove Pool, which has a whirlpool and outdoor bar areas. The Palo is an adults-only restaurant where you can enjoy a romantic meal with your significant other. The ships have theme nights for adults, too and offer world-class musicians to entertain you as well as superior nightclubs and lounges!
