6 Reasons Why the Disney Wish is the Most Magical Ship at Sea
It’s hard to believe but it’s been almost nine months since the Disney Wish took its inaugural sailing from Port Canaveral to the beautiful islands of the Bahamas and Disney’s Castaway Cay! If you are still unfamiliar with everything the ship has to offer or would like to start dreaming up your next voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, take a look at these six reasons why the Disney Wish is the most magical ship at sea!
1. All Aboard!
Like any Disney Cruise Line ship, the magic starts as soon as you set foot on the Disney Wish. Upon boarding, you and your family and friends will be greeted by name as you feast your eyes upon the GRAND Hall. Don’t forget to look up at the sparkling chandelier and also at the gorgeous bronze Cinderella statue.
The Grand Hall on the Disney Wish is also the first ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet that includes an atrium stage where guests will see various Disney Princesses and Princes during their sailing. You really never know who will stop by.
In addition, when you visit the Grand Hall at either 10 pm or midnight, you will be treated to a special “kiss goodnight.”
2. Signature Dining Selections
The Disney Wish also offers rotational dining like all of the other ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Rotational dining allows all guests to experience all of the themed dining rooms offered aboard on each night of their cruise while keeping the same waitstaff as you make your rotation each night.
While rotational dining is available on all Disney Cruise Line ships, the Wish offers three themed restaurants that can’t be found on any of the other ships.
You can enjoy the hay days of the golden age of Hollywood and be transported back to the early times of the Walt Disney Company in the 1923 dining room. In the World of Marvel dining room, be prepared to live out your epic Super Hero dreams on an action-packed Avengers mission. And, be prepared to visit the magic of Arendelle in Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure including appearances from your favorite Frozen characters.
3. Broadway-Caliber Entertainment
After a fun day in the sun, be prepared to enjoy some of the best, Broadway-caliber entertainment the high seas has to offer aboard the Disney Wish!
Guests will be treated to a variety of live shows including “Disney Seas the Adventure,” which features songs and characters from iconic Disney movies sharing a heartwarming story you won’t soon forget.
There’s also “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” and “The Little Mermaid” that Guests of all ages are sure to enjoy.
4. Abundant Adults-Only Options
Disney Cruise Line isn’t just for kids and the Disney Wish is no exception! From adults-only fine dining to other adults-only areas, adults can sail with or without kids and have the vacation of a lifetime.
When it comes to adults-only fine dining, there are a few options to experience aboard the Disney Wish. First, if you are looking for a steakhouse with an Italian flare, Palo Steakhouse is a must.
For an elegant French-inspired restaurant that is helmed by an award-winning chef, make sure you make a reservation at Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement.
While beyond amazing, there are more than adults-only restaurants to enjoy aboard the Disney Wish! There’s also an adults-only Senses Spa and The Rainforest where adults can enjoy indoor and outdoor spaces to relax and rejuvenate.
When inside the indoor portion of The Rainforest, adults are treated to heated loungers, an aromatherapy steam room, a dry sauna, and an all-new ice room. Outdoors, Guests can enjoy hot tubs and uber-comfortable areas to just lounge.
5. All About the Kids
Now that we know what the adults are going to do aboard the Disney WIsh, let’s take a closer look at all that is offered for the kids. And, since it is Disney, you know they have every detail carefully crafted!
In the Oceaneer Club, kids are invited to enjoy some supervised fun and so much magic! Inside the Oceaneer Club, there’s the Walt Disney Imagineering Lab where aspiring Imagineers learn what all it takes to bring Disney magic to life. I don’t know any little ones who wouldn’t want to get some hands-on experience while dreaming up and creating their own Disney attraction.
There’s also the Marvel Super Hero Academy where kids will put their skills to the test and suit up for a virtual battle.
These Kids’ Clubs are just the beginning of all the magic that is waiting for children aboard the Disney Wish! (While their parents are also having the most magical cruise ever!)
6. Fun Under the Sun
The Disney Wish also features a completed reimagined pool deck that offers more magic and fun under the sun than other ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet.
With a whopping six different pools all offering different depths and sizes, there’s a pool that every member of the family will call their favorite.
And, for the thrill seekers, there’s the first-ever Disney attraction at sea in the AquaMouse. This water roller coaster features animated scenes along with special effects as it twists and dips its way above the upper decks while you and your family create memories of a lifetime.
To say we haven’t scratched the surface of what the Disney Wish has to offer would be an understatement. This ship really has everything you could ever dream of and more.
