About Disney Cruise Line

For a family-oriented experience, the Disney Cruise Line is hard to beat. Its four ships are proud to wave the Disney flag, and offer all the magic and adventure that come with the name. Disney cruises, which follow a number of routes around the Caribbean and Baja Peninsula, are squarely targeted at the family market, and are perfect for kids - whether young or just young at heart. These voyages are short - a maximum of 7 nights - and usually depart from Port Canaveral, a short hop from Mickey's home in Orlando, Florida. The journeys visit different areas in the Caribbean: the Bahamas is a popular destination, and various ships also drop anchor at Cozumel, Mexico, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Falmouth, Jamaica. Shore excursions (known as Port Adventures) include adventurous activities like snorkeling, horseback riding, and zip-lining through the jungle. In Nassau, Bahamas, kids will even get the chance to swim with dolphins. All Caribbean journeys have one stop in common, though: they always dock at Castaway Cay, Disney's privately-owned 1,000-acre island. There are several beaches to enjoy, and Disney characters are in attendance for meet and greet sessions. Snorkeling, parasailing and feeding stingrays are among the excursions on offer. The island is largely undeveloped, so its lush tropical greenery is the perfect setting to live out Robinson Crusoe fantasies.

Disney's ships do not offer casinos, as the onboard atmosphere is decidedly family-friendly. The enchanting Broadway-quality shows are based on Disney musicals, and the pool areas have plenty to offer kids, with a 200-ft Mickey water slide and a sprinkler tub for the youngest visitors. Although prices don't vary much between the four ships, there is something to recommend the two flagships, Dream and Fantasy: passengers can enjoy a wild ride on the AquaDuck, the world's only onboard water coaster. Mom and Dad can escape by heading to the adults-only spa and the "After Hours" area, featuring a sports pub and dance club, among other entertainment. There are plenty of activities to keep kids and teens entertained, and family groups are offered two-way radios when they board, so it's easy to stay in touch. Youngsters from 3 months to 17 years will have something to keep them busy, making a Disney cruise the ideal choice for a family vacation.

Disney's staterooms are another example of the family-friendly design. Even the standard cabins are more spacious than many other cruise lines, and all cabins can hold four people, through thoughtful use of fold-out furniture. Most staterooms have bathtubs and toilets in separate rooms, which should keep family disputes to a minimum. The cabins are full of magic for the kids, with hidden Disney artwork dotted around the room. Most enchanting of all is the Magic Porthole, a cleverly-disguised LCD screen which shows Disney characters and the occasional pirate ship outside the cabins. This thoughtful touch adds an exciting hint of magic to inside cabins, meaning that every stateroom on the ship gets a view for the kids to admire.

The oldest ship in the fleet, Disney Magic, celebrated its maiden voyage in 1998, while the most recent, Disney Fantasy, dates back to 2011. All four ships offer a number of different cabin choices, including deluxe suites with walk-in closets, a wet bar and rain showers. The decor on the ships is classy, with secret Disney touches that passengers might not notice at first glance. Onboard restaurants offer different cuisine options, including French, Italian and Caribbean. If they need a break, Mom and Dad can also escape to an adults-only restaurant, safe in the knowledge that the little ones are in the experienced hands of Disney professionals.
