A Disney Cruise vacation is the best cruise vacation you could book, in my not-so-biased opinion. Once you go “Disney” on your cruise vacation, you won’t go back. The service, cleanliness, people, characters, staterooms, entertainment, etc.. cannot be beat.
There are 4 Disney cruise ships currently: Disney Wonder, Disney Magic, Disney Dream, or Disney Fantasy.
A fifth Disney Cruise Line ship will be added in 2021 called Disney Wish. And a sixth ship is planned to be added in 2023.
The Disney Magic and Disney Wonder are sister ships, having debuted in 1998 and 1999. The Disney Wonder is fresh from an intensive 55-day dry-dock renovation, which transformed many of its spaces and made everything aboard feel brand-new.
These 83,000-tonners are Disney Cruise Line’s “classic,” smaller boats, with 10 floors and 875 rooms. Each carries 2,713 passengers.
Disney’s newer cruise ships, the Disney Dream (2011) and Disney Fantasy (2012) are 130,000-ton vessels with 1,250 rooms that hold up to 4,000 travelers.
The Disney Cruise ships all offer themed family restaurants, live shows, deck parties, elaborate kids’ spaces, character appearances, at-sea fireworks, etc…
Almost every Disney Cruise with a Bahamian or Caribbean itinerary makes a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. This is the highlight for many cruisers because Castaway Cay is a true paradise. On the island, there is an amazing lunch provided free of charge for you during your visit to the island, too!
Disney Cruise Line wants to make sure all their guests have a great time, so they make sure they have areas for just the grownups on their cruise ships. While the kids are in the clubs, you can relax. Or go on a Disney cruise without the kids! Either way, there are areas just for you!
