Have you ever been on a cruise? I have in Apirl/May 2008, Disney Magic, Eastern Caribbean with my then girlfriend and her two kids.
I've been asked,"aren't there lots of kids on Disney Cruises?" "Yes" is the answer. However, with that being said, Disney has many adult activities. On our cruise, we dropped off the kids in the morning or evening at a variety of fun events. This allowed us adult time to shop, hit the bars, go dancing, enjoy adult comedy acts and so on. In other words, whether or not you have kids with you on your cruise, on a Disney cruise you can choose how much contact you have with them. If you go on a Disney Cruise without children, you can avoid kids all together. Disney's Island "Castaway Cay" is reserved exclusively for guests of the Disney Cruises. "Serenity Bay Beach" is on the other side of this island and is reserved exclusively for "adults only." This special destination allows you to receive a decadent massage in an ocean view cabana, relaxing privacy on a white sand beach overlooking the clear turquoise water with swaying palm trees, or simply enjoying a quiet drink at the bar with an unbelievable ocean view.
I must say that those nightly live stage shows and fireworks while at sea were amazing. We enjoyed rotation dining every night. It allowed us the pleasure of a different restaurant nightly, while developing a friendship with our favorite servers at table 74!
Even as a "retired Club 33 cast member" so familiar with Disneys' legendary quality; the incredible amenities, service, food, and attention to detail offered on the Disney Cruise left me speechless! Disney knows how to treat their guests and if you are considering a cruise, take it from DR LEE, a Disney Cruise is simply the best. You will be as I, talking about all those memories for years.
Smooth Sailing......DR LEE
