Walt Disney Cruise Line

By Patrik Bushman

Disney Cruise Line has been involved in the cruise industry since 1999, when they desired to create an honest-to-goodness family cruise experience. They were an innovator in this regard, as prior to that time most cruise lines were centered on the experience of adults on board. By entering the market with a family-friendly focus, Disney Cruise Lines has initiated a new era in the industry.

The change effected by Disney’s entry, however, hasn’t been limited only to kid-friend options. For example, they were the first to build a ship on which a majority of the staterooms offered a balcony. The staterooms were also significantly larger than the industry average and, in a move that especially benefitted families with small children, instituted a bathtub in most staterooms. All of these changes became the new industry standard for subsequent cruise ships from all lines.

Beyond that, though, there were numerous other changes that allowed Disney’s ships to best accommodate families. Of course you’ll have the themed restaurants, and Disney characters making cameos all during the cruise. There are also areas designed specifically to entertain children of all ages, with areas ranging from nurseries for toddlers all the way up to teens-only hangouts. Not only will this make your cruise memorable for children; it will also keep Mom and Dad happy by allowing for some free time from the kids!

The Walt Disney Cruise Line ships all offer some of the best things that you’d expect from any cruise ship as well. Of course you’ll tour some of the world’s most beautiful seas – you can choose from a variety of attractive destinations. You’ll also enjoy an all-inclusive vacation complete with excellent dining, shows, activities, pools, and more. And don’t worry, every Disney ship offers some “adults-only” areas that you can escape to when necessary.

As mentioned above, Walt Disney Cruise Line offers departures from several ports of call. Options include the Mexican Riviera, Hawaii, Alaska, and the Mediterranean. And like most large cruise lines, Disney offers a tour of the Caribbean and another to Bahamas.

The latter two are among the most popular, largely because they include a stop at Disney’s private Bahaman island, Castaway Cay. This idyllic paradise is just what you might expect of a perfect private island. You’ll beautiful verdant forests with lush foliage, bordering on miles of immaculate beaches and ending at the crystal-clear oceanfront. And just like the ships that visit the Cay, this island has several areas designated for different age groups including families-only, teens, and adults.

Whatever your preferred destination, Disney’s lines likely have something to offer you and your family. The options are seemingly endless, however, so careful planning in advance will help you get the most out of your vacation dollars.
