Disney Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Disney cruise ships?

Most of your fellow passengers will be families and multigenerational groups, but you'll also find a sprinkling of honeymooners and couples without children (especially on Alaska itineraries) who appreciate the oversized staterooms and underutilized adults-only areas.

It's important to know that Disney's load factor is the highest in the industry (remember: lots of kids), so a 2,500-passenger ship may, in fact, be carrying 4,000.

Do I have to dress up on a Disney cruise?

Most of the time, no, but there are optional formal and semiformal nights when most people do go dressier. Also, expect the kids to want to dress up -- as pirates, princesses and other Disney characters. During the day, the dress code is always casual; at night it's usually the same, though you can't wear swimwear and tank tops in the dining rooms, but you can wear jeans or shorts. On the optional formal and semiformal night, you'll find many people glitzing it up.

Is everything free on Disney cruises?

No. Cruise fares cover meals in the main dining rooms and buffet, soft drinks served at meals and at each ship's beverage station in the buffet and on the pool deck, character meet and greets, and Youth Club activities, big stage production shows and showings of first-run as well as classic Disney movies.

Additional costs include: shore excursions, Wi-Fi, laundry, spa and salon services, babysitting in the ships' nurseries, onboard photography service, alcoholic beverages and specialty dining venues: Palo (on all ships) and Remy (on Dream and Fantasy).

What are Disney’s most popular activities?

The most popular activities on a Disney cruise ship vary by age. Kids (and their parents) love being able to interact with Disney characters in a much smaller environment than the theme parks; characters may call kids by name during the cruise and there are scheduled meet-and-greet sessions on the ship and the private island. On two ships, kids and adults alike flock to the AquaDuck, the first-ever water coaster on a cruise ship, and cruisers of all ages love hanging out poolside, as well as the festive deck parties and once-per-cruise fireworks found on all ships.

Adults like the adults-only spaces, including pools, sun decks and bars (varies by ship).

Why go with Disney?

  • Family-friendly cruises with roomier-than-average staterooms
  • Nostalgic ships offer elegance with subtle nods to Disney
  • Most Caribbean itineraries stop at the line's private island Castaway Cay

Best for: Disney fanatics, both with and without kids, who love the pixie dust and entertainment options -- and will pay a premium for it

Not for: Adults looking for a kid-free getaway, families looking for a budget vacation or anyone who can't stomach constant Disney branding

Disney Cruise Line Cruiser Reviews

Great Service for a family friendly vacation

I mean I felt safe, secure, and willing to leave my personal effects somewhere and no fear or thought of malice (this is my utopia feeling I only get with Disney).Room Service is good 20-30 minutes of delivery on American style (vegan options) and good liquor/wine menu.Read More

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

Boring, overpriced, rigid, not for adults

There was no food on offer, as Castaway Cay only serves a specific barbecue lunch scheduled for a certain specific hour, and the cruise line made no effort to alter this rigid schedule even under the extenuating circumstances presented.I think it is exceptionally poor hospitality to cause a two hour delay and then provide little or no food for people once they are finally able to board.Read More

Big Disappointment

We were in a very short line for Chip and Dale and there was no family behind us and a crew member said (after we were in line) that he was cutting the line off at the family in front of us!Again, there was NO family behind us!Read More
