Why A Disney Cruise Isn’t Just For Children
For decades now, the Disney brand has been synonymous with children’s entertainment and that definitely stretches to their fleet of four magical cruise ships. However, the cruise line also prides itself on providing something for each and every member of the family and that means there’s so much for adults to do whilst on board too.
Disney Magic, Wonder, Fantasy and Dream all have exclusive adult-only areas so that, whether you are travelling with children or not, you can have some time to yourself and experience a sprinkling of enchantment made just for those who are 18 and over.
So let’s take a look at some of these venues which appeal to adults that are young at heart.
Each of the Disney ships has at least one romantic, adult-only restaurant, as well as the chance to dine in your suite if you wish. You will find the Italian themed dining venue, Palo, on all four ships. Not only does it offer sumptuous dishes inspired by the city of Venice and the surrounding area, there are also spectacular sweeping views that can be enjoyed through the panoramic windows.
On Disney Dream and Fantasy, you will also have the option to eat at Remy, a French restaurant which takes its name from the main character in Disney’s animated film Ratatouille. Guests love donning their suits and cocktail dresses to enjoy the refined atmosphere and a gourmet menu that was put together by three-Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement.
When the children are tucked up in bed or enjoying the evening entertainment in the many kid’s clubs, adults can retreat to a specially designed area of each of the four ships. Called Europa, The District, After Hours or Route 66 (depending which ship you choose), this section comprises of multiple bars and lounges where you can grab a romantic drink, watch the nightly entertainment or dance the night away.
On board Disney Fantasy and Dream there’s the Skyline Bar, an elegant venue which features an ever-changing backdrop inspired by cities around the world, and Meridian, a great place for a pre-dinner aperitif. Similarly, on Disney Wonder you’ll find a live music venue known as the Cadillac Lounge and on Disney Magic ‘Fathoms’ is the place to go for comedy, music, dancing and more.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to adult-only lounges though, as we haven’t even mentioned the London underground themed ‘The Tube’ on board Disney Fantasy and the fabulous ‘Pink’, which turns a part of Disney Dream into the inside of a Champagne bottle.
With all the fun and games going on, you may find yourself needing some time to relax and there are some great places to retreat to if this is the case. As well as the fantastic Senses Spa and Salon (Vista Spa and Salon on Disney Wonder), which offers a range of revitalising treatments; there’s the dedicated Quiet Cove Pool on each of the four ships.
Away from the lively main pool area, the Quiet Cove Pool in an oasis for those over the age of 18. Here, you will find a specially designed pool for sun bathing, multiple whirlpools, a shallow pool and even a dedicated bar with crew members that will bring drinks directly to your lounger. In addition to this, those choosing to sail with Disney Fantasy can also unwind in Satellite Falls. This peaceful area of the ship is relatively new and includes a circular splash pool surrounded by sun loungers.
