6 Fun Facts About Your Next Disney Cruise Line Vacation

January 18, 2016 | By |

With the winter blues creeping in, it’s time to experience something truly magical. We’re talking about a holiday on the high seas, a Disney Cruise Line vacation in fact.  With sailings to exotic destinations in the Caribbean, Bahamas, Alaska, and Europe, your whole family can delight in the comfort and service aboard a Disney cruise. Here are 6 fun facts to get you started:

1. Kids love Disney cruises and they’ll be entertained for hours.

In addition to special moments with Disney characters, kids can look forward to exciting clubs with Disney-themed activities and entertainment. There are also immersive, private clubs for tweens and teens, so there won’t be a single sullen teenager in sight! All included in the price of the cruise!

2. Parents enjoy Disney cruises because they can relax too.

While the kids are busy having fun in supervised clubs, grown-ups can let loose in exclusive adult areas. From a nighttime entertainment district to a fine dining restaurant, peace of mind is convenient and possible. And for those worried about missing a gym workout – don’t worry, there’s a state-of-the-art fitness centre, too.

3. A Disney cruise includes only the best entertainment.

There’s never a dull moment, thanks to Broadway-style Disney musicals (found only on board) and first-run films (some in 3D!). We also love the themed deck parties and most voyages even have fireworks.

4. A Disney cruise features unique Rotational Dining: a mouth-watering experience with impeccable service.

Throughout the cruise, guests rotate through 3 restaurants while accompanied by the same servers at each dinner. It’s a welcome, personal touch, and there’s never an up-charge for sumptuous menu items, like baked lobster tail and roasted rack of lamb.

5. A Disney cruise means convenience, comfort and legendary Disney service.

Guests are lodged in spacious staterooms (designed especially for families) where they can order 24-hour complimentary room service. And that’s not all – complimentary soda, coffee and tea are always available on the pool deck.

6. Most Bahamian and Caribbean sailings include a stop at a private island.

Castaway Cay is a Disney exclusive and a favourite among guests for its soft sand beaches and swaying palm trees.
