Why choose a Disney Cruise?

There are many Cruise Lines to choose from, and they all offer different dining options, activities, staterooms, etc.  They all travel to incredible destinations, and they have beautiful cruise ships.  So the question ends up being, why choose a Disney Cruise?

Well….when you sail on a Disney cruise, the magic and memorable experiences for families are seemingly endless.  You’ll have access to outstanding entertainment, dining, amenities, and much more.  Most experiences are included in the cost of your cruise.


There are plenty of family friendly activities included in your cruise fare:

  • Live, Broadway-caliber Disney shows
  • State of the art theatres that screen 3D, first-run and classic Disney movies
  • Deck parties and fireworks at sea on most itineraries
  • Pool areas — including a family pool, kids pool, splash zones, water slides and adult-exclusive pool
  • A sports deck
  • Plenty of Disney character experiences
  • Activities for families, including poolside movies, trivia, game shows, live music, and more

There are activities exclusive to kids, tweens, teens, and adults.

Kids Only

Each ship features exclusive youth clubs for kids of all ages, available at no additional charge:

  • Kids club for ages 3 – 12
  • Tween club for ages 11 – 14
  • Teen club for ages 14 – 17

While the kids enjoy time at their exclusive clubs, parents can enjoy adult exclusive amenities.  Parents can relax knowing their children are being supervised by experienced childcare professionals.  Wave phones are available to keep parents and kids in touch at all times.  For kids under the age of 3, Disney does offer a nursery, but it comes with an additional fee and you must make reservations.

Adults can enjoy the best of both worlds.  They can have time with their kids, and time alone. Adults enjoy complimentary access to:

  • A tranquil pool and whirlpool spa

    • My husband and I love cruises, but we’ve been hesitant to take our daughter on her first cruise. The more I thought about it, there is so much to do on a Disney cruise ship for adults and kids, we have nothing to worry about. There will be more than enough activities to keep us all busy and happy. We’re going on the Disney Dream this November. It’s an agent training trip for me, but they get to tag along. We can’t wait!
