A | Disney Cruise Line isn’t just for kids

Many people think Disney Cruise Line (DCL) is just for kids but that’s absolutely not true! In fact, not counting casino space (Disney does not offer gambling at sea), DCL has more adult-only space than many cruise lines and provides oodles of fun activities for grown-ups.Disney Dream's Champagne Bar, Pink

Disney Cruise Line’s adult-only spaces include a quiet pool where you can catch up on your reading or take a dip in the water, a coffee house for a little me-time surfing the web and sipping a latte, fine-dining restaurants for some adult conversation and incredible cuisine, and nightclubs where those 21+ can dance the night away. (The swanky champagne bar, Pink, is my personal favorite Disney Cruise adult spot!) Also, the on-board spa and salon provides a luxurious retreat with an array of services from massages and facials to pedicures and teeth whitening.

Plus, your kids will be so entertained with the elaborately themed kids’ clubs (for ages 12-weeks though teens) that parents can relax and enjoy all of this fun without guilt!

While Disney’s older ships, Magic and Wonder, offer all of these perks, for more extensive adult-friendly options I suggest you check out the fleet’s newest ship, Disney Dream for adults. As for group rates, stay tuned; there’s so much good information to share, I have an entire separate answer in the works!
