Disney is, of course, one of the greatest names in entertainment. Ever. Almost all of us have fond memories of growing up with their books, movies, and theme parks. And, as most of you know, they also do cruises that incorporate all Disney’s best-loved elements.
With that in mind, it’s safe to say that Disney is generally high on the list of cruises people want to take with their children.
But Disney Cruise Line is not ALL about the kids- they also have an amazing array of options onboard for adults… and straight from the line, here are some highlights!
Eat . . .
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 northern Italian specialties, making it the perfect setting for romantic dinners and intimate gatherings. During sea days, Palo hosts a spectacular champagne brunch. Dinner at Remy, 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.
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. On the Disney Wonder, Outlook Café is a stylish retreat located high atop deck 10 where guests can have a coffee or cocktail as they peer out through floor-to-ceiling glass windows at breathtaking vistas.
Relax . . .

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 comfortable 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.
