10 Reasons to Book a Disney Cruise
Where there are tons of reasons to book a Disney Cruise, let’s look at what I think are the most popular 10 reasons.
Currently Disney Cruise Line is made up of 5 different ships.
Two Magic class smaller (max passenger capacity 2,700) ships, The Magic and The Wonder.
Two Dream class ships (max passenger capacity 4,000) ships, The Dream and The Fantasy.
Plus the new in 2022, Triton class ship (max passenger capacity 4,000), The Wish.
The next Triton class ship (max passenger capacity 4,000), The Treasure will launch in 2024.
With all the Disney Cruise Line destinations, there is a cruise destination for every type of location you would like to visit.
From the Bahamas, The Caribbean Islands, Northern Europe, Norwegian Fjords, the Mediterranean, British Isles, Mexico, Alaska and more.
With a cruise you get to take in multiple destinations over the course of your vacation.
From inside stateroom (some of which have virtual portholes so you feel like you have a real Oceanview window),
To Oceanview Staterooms many of which have your own private verandah,
And can sleep up to five guests (two in the queen sized bed, one on the flip top couch, one in the bunk that is lowered from the ceiling and one in the pull down murphy bed).
There are so many different options to suit every group, family or budget.
The ships even have beautifully decorated concierge staterooms and suites with extra concierge level amenities.
Kids Club Areas
Disney has such fun and age appropriate things to do in each of their Kids Club Areas, that it’s unlikely your kids will want to leave.
The Oceaneer Club for kids ages 3-12. The fun and interactive areas for these kiddos is sure to keep them enjoying ever minute they are hanging out in the club.
With play areas, story telling, crafts and interactive activities kids in this age range will be talking about their time in the Oceaneer Club for a long time to come.
They may even have special guests stop by for a visit.
If your preteen is a little too cool for the Oceaneer Club, then Edge will be the spot for them.
For ages 11-14, this space gives preteens their own special hang out spot.
With high tech entertainment devices and daily counselor guided activities, your preteen is sure to love this cool hang out.
Just for teens ages 14-17, this teens exclusive space will give them their own space to chill out, listen to music, play games and hang out with others their age.
All of these great spaces are included in the price of your Disney Cruise.
It’s a Small World Nursery
Do you have a little one, ages 6 months to 3 years, traveling with you?
Don’t worry their is a space for them to have fun and allow you a little grownup time.
It’s a Small World Nursery is where little ones can be looked after and entertained by Disney Counselors.
Reservations must be made in advance (with a possibility of day of reservations) and there is a fee per child per timeslot.
Adult Only Spaces
Disney Cruise Line has plenty for Adults Only.
Pools and Quiet Areas
Each Disney Cruise Line ship has fantastic Adult Only pool areas and quiet areas.
Relax and grab some sunrays in one of the pools or whirlpool spas.
Or relax in a deck chair to catch up on the reading you never get to do at home.
Senses Spa and Salons
Want to add some pampering and indulgent to your cruise?
Schedule a massage services or one of a list of spa treatments available.
Or maybe you want to get one of the Spa’s Rainforest Passes for the length of your cruise (sometimes available for certain one day lengths) so you can enjoy all the Rainforest Room has to offer.
Nightclubs and Lounges
On each of the Disney Cruise Line ships there are multiple nightclubs and lounges.
All with different themes, décor and activities.
The lounges do have times that those under 18 can come in explore, have a drink or a snack.
Adult Only Dining
Some of the lounges do have food items (not included in the price of your cruise package) but each ship has at least one adult only dining location.
Each Disney Cruise Ship has a Palo Restaurant.
On the Magic, Wonder, Dream and Fantasy it is Italian cuisine.
Palo is a Steakhouse onboard the Wish.
Onboard the 3 larger ships there is a second Adults Only Restaurant.
For the Wish it is Enchante.
On the Dream and the Fantasy it is Remy.
Amazing Dining Options
Onboard each Disney Cruise ship there are 3 main dining rooms.
For Disney Cruises these are your restaurants for what Disney calls “rotational dining”.
Rotational Dining means that you will be assigned to each of the 3 restaurants each night of your cruise.
If your cruise is longer than 3 nights you will just restart your rotation.
Not only do you and your party rotate through the dining restaurants each night but so does your wait staff.
The great things about this is that your wait staff gets to know you and your party’s likes and dislikes.
On my most recent cruise, the second night of dinner our waitress had the same soft drink I had the night before delivered right after we sat down before we had ordered anything.
All of these restaurants are included in the cost of your cruise (specialty drinks are not included).
Other Onboard Food Options
Want to grab food more on the go or looking for something more laid back on your cruise?
Also included in the price of your package are quick service dining options.
Each ship has multiple quick service options and a buffet that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
All included in your cruise package.
Each ship also has unlimited soft serve ice cream. That’s a reason to book a Disney Cruise by itself.
Broadway Style Shows
Each Disney Cruise ship has multiple Broadway Style Shows on board.
With the theater seating you will ready feel like you are at a Broadway production.
Book a themed Disney Cruise Line Cruise and enjoy extra entertainment, characters, specialty foods and more.
From Marvel Day at Sea cruises with not only your favorite Disney characters but also your favorite Marvel characters,
celebrate Halloween on the High Seas,
or get to hang out with all your favorite Pixar Characters.
This is just the tops of the reasons to book at Disney Cruise.
