Top 10 Reasons You Should Take Your Family On A Disney Cruise
1. You have children who are 12 years old or younger.
Every child should have the opportunity of experiencing the magic that Disney offers at some point in their childhood. This is a very special trip that your kids will cherish forever and never forget. The only way of experiencing Castaway Cay is through boarding a Disney vessel. One of the best ways of experiencing everything offered by Disney it to go on a Disney cruise.
2. You have teenagers.
One of the things that Disney cruises understands very well is that small children get older. That's why they have also developed programs for teens. If you leave your teenagers at home when you go on your Disney cruise, you'll be worried about what they are up to when you are gone. So take them with you on your Disney cruise. They will really love it.
3. You're planning on go on a cruise without taking your kids.
Why leave your children at grandma's when it is possible to take your kids on a Disney cruise with you? Itineraries for children (up through midnight) are planned by Disney cruises, no matter how old your kids happen to be. So all of you will be able to enjoy yourselves separately. Then you can come together to go on ports-of-call, for eating meals, etc. When you take your kids with you on the cruise, you won't have to worry about them while you are gone.
4. Alone time for parents.
Once the children are safely onboard with their itineraries full of fun activities already planned, Dad and Mom can enjoy some alone time without having to worry since they know their kids are safe. There is a paging system on board that can be used for contacting parents any time, should the need ever arise. Whether you would like to go to a nightclub, health spa or coffee shop onboard, Disney cruises understands this and is ready to accommodate your needs.
5. Great dining.
Gourmet dining options is something that is usually one of the main things that most cruisers are looking for when they go on a cruise. Disney is very well aware of that and provides great cuisine for everyone. They even have a formal adults-only restaurant onboard called the Palo. Its specialty is Northern Italian cuisine. Your children will love the Animator's Palate. The walls are decorated with Disney scenes that change to vivid color from black-and-white over the course of dinner.
6. Onboard Entertainment.
Original productions are featured on the Disney boats. They take place at Walt Disney Theatre. They are Broadway-style live productions that include all the recognizable cast of Disney characters. In addition, there are two locations onboard that offer movies- at the Buena Vista Theatre and close to the Goofy Pool outdoors on a jumbo LED screen.There are also other forms of onboard entertainment besides movies and plays. There are activities that have been tailored for all kinds of passengers.
For children ages 3-7 there is the Oceaneer Club, which has a fully trained staff to help ensure the little ones have plenty of fun. For children ages 8-12, the Oceaneer Lab offers interactive games that are on a gigantic video wall. At Ocean Quest, children can play ship captain. There are also teen-only clubs available. They have been designed to look like a dorm room or apartment where hard-to-please teens can socialize with other teenagers their age. In addition, there are activities that have been designed for the entire family to enjoy, such as Studio Sea where Dad, Mom and the kids can sing karaoke together and participate in live game shows.
7. Locations that Disney Cruises visit.
Disney Cruises stop at Disney's private island called Castaway Cay. On their Caribbean cruises their featured stops include Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Key West, St. John, St. Thomas, St. Maarten and Nassau. Their Mexican Riviera cruise has a featured trip that travels from Port Canaveral to the Panama Canal. It stops at Capo San Lucas, Mazatlan, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, Cartagena, Aruba and Castaway Cay.
8. For Spring, you'd like to do something a little different.
Not many people know that the Disney Cruises are actually a really popular choice for college students to spend their Spring Break on. It's not hard to understand why this is the case. Disney cruises offer an alternative for college kids who don't want to participate in activities of debauchery that so many college students indulge in.
9. You've never visited Castaway Cay before.
This is the private island owned by Disney. It offers features that are ideal for the entire family. Adults can visit Shangri-La, while children and teenagers are exploring Never Land. The entire family can also head to the beach together and enjoy and sun and relax.
10. You haven't ever been on a cruise.
For travelers who haven't ever been on a cruise before, Disney Cruises is an excellent choice. Even if you won't be traveling with children it will still be an excursion that you will cherish forever. There are many ship excursions planned by Disney cruises no matter what time of year it is. You shouldn't have any problems finding a trip that will fit into your hectic schedule.
