Both family-friendly and luxurious, a Disney cruise offers many of the same perks you’d expect from the brand’s theme parks, including character experiences and showstopping musical productions.
Sail around the world from the sun-soaked Caribbean to the fairy-tale landscapes of Europe on a Disney Cruise. The most popular itineraries are in the Bahamas, giving you the chance to relax on exotic beaches and soak in the abundant sunshine around the multitude of pools and splash zones. The Disney Dream sails through the Bahamas throughout the year, while the Disney Fantasy covers the Caribbean. You can also opt to cruise around Europe or Alaska for something a bit different!

There was so much to do every day you couldn't possibly fit it all in and the Disney app you put on your phone before you go is so clever.

A ‘Rotational Dining’ concept allows you to rotate between three main restaurants each evening, with your own server moving right along with you! Main dining themes include the Animator’s Palate, showcasing California-fresh fare against the backdrop of a Disney character show. The Enchanted Garden is inspired by the lush gardens of Versailles, while Lumiere’s offers a French bistro meu. Tiana’s Place is worthy of a New Orleans princess with its jazz music and down-home Cajun cooking, while Royal Court puts you in the heart of a traditional fairy-tale setting.
It’s easy to work up a serious thirst at sea, so stay hydrated with the array of onboard beverages. Soft drinks are included with meals and are free of charge at designated Beverage Stations and the teens-only lounge. However, additional charges to apply for beer, wine, bottled water, and drinks at the bars. While daily drinks packages are unavailable, you can pre-order bottles of water, beer, wine or champagne through the cruise line’s gifting service.
Fireworks, extravagant deck parties and open-air movies: there’s truly never a dull moment aboard a Disney cruise, with Magic Kingdom moments around every corner. This includes the Disney Characters themselves, who are on hand throughout the itinerary for meet and greets. You might bump into Cinderella, Captain Hook, or the head mouse himself as you stroll around the ship! Little ones will love special character events like the Royal Court Royal Tea with the Disney Princesses, or the Character Breakfast with all the friends on hand for hugs and autographs.
A cruise with Disney brings all the trappings of a tropical resort, with plenty of family-friendly pools, play areas and waterslides. The Aqualab boasts an 1,800 square foot play area with geysers, pipes and pop jets to splash around in, while Donald’s Pool includes a sleek outdoor swimming area and two whirlpool spas. There’s also Mickey’s Pool for the littlest sailors to paddle in, and the Aquaduck water coaster when you’re ready to spice things up with a thrilling 4-deck drop. And for adults, there’s the Quiet Cove pool for peaceful laps and soaking.
Gratuities are not included with the price of a Disney cruise, but you can add the suggested daily amount to your onboard account at the end of your cruise or choose to prepay. A 15% service charge is automatically added to bar and deck service tabs, and an 18% gratuity is added to spa services.
Disney keeps it casual for the most part, with a cruise casual dress code in force permitting shorts, jeans and T-shirts in most onboard dining locations. Swimwear and tank tops aren’t allowed in the restaurants, however. The exception to the casual dress code is within the adult-exclusive restaurants, Palo and Remy. In line with their sophisticated ambience, men are asked to wear dress slacks and a collared shirt, while women can wear a more elegant dress. There are also a number of optional theme nights depending on the itinerary, including dress-up nights and pirate parties.
