Disney Cruise Line
Disney Cruise Line offers cruises for everyone of every age. They operate a fleet of 4 large ships which could be mistaken for floating theme parks. However, a Disney cruise isn’t just for children, as there are a number of adult only locations throughout each ship. The ships in the fleet are: –
- Disney Dream
- Disney Fantasy
- Disney Magic
- Disney Wonder
As you would expect from Disney, there is something to do all day long and into the night. They offer a range of clubs and activities for children of 3 and over. When your children aged 10 or under are signed into a Youth Activity programme you are given a Wave Phone, so that you can be contacted easily anywhere on the ship.
The dining experiences on a Disney cruise are both excellent and varied, with the option of Character Dining on most cruises of 7 nights or longer. Unique to Disney is Rotational Dining, which means that you eat in a different restaurant each evening, but so does everyone else. You have the same table number, with the same diners, and the same waiters, but it is just in a different restaurant.
Destinations on a Disney cruise include the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Canada & New England, Alaska, Mexican Riviera and the Mediterranean.
Staterooms range from inside right up to a Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah. Another Disney innovation can be found on Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, and that is the Magical Porthole in the inside staterooms. This is a virtual porthole showing real-time views.
A Disney cruise from Florida can of course be combined with a stay at Walt Disney World in Orlando, to make it a holiday of a lifetime.
