A Disney Cruise adventure is unlike any cruising experience you’ve ever been on. Disney ups the game when it comes to dining, entertainment, and crucially child care. That gives the adults on the voyage plenty of opportunities to reconnect with their spouse or just have some precious ‘me’ time.
Disney Cruise Dining
Disney Cruise Line offers dining experiences especially for adults—elegant, peaceful and designed to suit sophisticated tastes. Palo, Disney’s signature restaurant at sea, treats adults to sweeping ocean views and exquisite modern Italian specialties, making it the perfect setting for romantic dinners and intimate gatherings. On sea days and select port days, Palo hosts a spectacular champagne brunch. Dinner at Remy, available on the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream, is a lavish affair with exquisite French-inspired gourmet cuisine, a world-class wine list and superb service in an elegant setting. Guests can also enjoy champagne brunch at Remy during sea days and select port days for a truly magnificent dining experience.
Cove Café is the perfect place to sit back, sip a gourmet coffee, read a magazine or surf the web. Light snacks are offered at this peaceful retreat located near the Quiet Cove Pool.
Relaxation is on the menu too
Adult guests can take a dip in the Quiet Cove Pool, unwind in one of the whirlpool spas, or enjoy a cocktail while relaxing in one of many poolside chaise lounges. On the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream, Satellite Sun Deck includes a water feature called Satellite Falls, a circular splash pool with benches and a gently falling rain curtain that provides cool comfort. Around this upper deck, adult guests can soak up the sun in loungers or relax in the shade under a canopy.
Senses Spa & Salon provides tranquility and pampering in ocean-view spa environments. A menu of spa treatments and services such as massages, body wraps, facials, manicures, pedicures and hair styling are available.
In the spas’ Rainforest room, guests can experience the benefits of steam, heat and water therapy combined with the power of aromatherapy to relax the mind and body.
For the ultimate in luxury, spa villas provide a private luxury for one or a romantic retreat for two, complete with an indoor spa treatment suite, connected to a private outdoor verandah with personal hot tub, open-air shower and plush double chaise lounge for enjoying ocean views and warm breezes.
Fitness-minded passengers can take advantage of state-of-the-art exercise equipment, an area for spinning classes, Pilates and yoga instruction, and personal consultations with professional trainers.
On Disney Cruise Line’s private island, Castaway Cay, Serenity Bay is a pristine stretch of beach exclusively for adults, located almost a mile from the main family beach. At Serenity Bay, sparkling turquoise waters meet pristine white sand, palm fronds sway in the breeze and plenty of lounge chairs and two-person hammocks dot the beach.
For the ultimate in relaxation, adults can enjoy a therapeutic massage at one of the nearby cabanas overlooking the ocean. And there is no need to head back to the main beach for refreshment—a delectable lunch buffet, Bahamian specialty drinks, beer and mixed drinks are served at the nearby Castaway Air Bar.
Night time is Play time
The nightclubs at Europa (Disney Fantasy), The District (Disney Dream) and After Hours (Disney Magic, Disney Wonder) offer nighttime entertainment just for adults. Sophisticated bars and lounges, casual pubs and trendy clubs afford adults the chance to enjoy live nighttime entertainment, cabaret shows, game shows, dancing, live satellite sports broadcasts and more. Palate-pleasing delights include specialty cocktails, fine wines and spirits, champagne and an eclectic array of domestic and imported beers.

Disney Cruise Line is also a great place to arrange an engagement or wedding ceremony or commitment ceremony. We usually see plenty of honeymooning couples sailing on Disney’s magical ships.
