The name Disney is synonymous with family entertainment, so it’s no wonder that the Disney Dream is typically packed with families and kids. The weekend cruises are especially popular because they offer families a “cruise sampler” and make a good add-on to a Walt Disney World vacation.
Does that mean you won’t have fun on a Disney cruise if you don’t have children? I don’t have kids myself, and my upcoming Disney Dream cruise will be my 88th, so you can probably guess my opinion. If you’re wondering how adults keep busy on the Disney Dream, check out a few of the options below. I must confess, even with all of those adult activities, I’m still jealous of the kids. Jump here to find out why.
The Senses Spa is the place for individual and group relaxation. Book a massage or other treatment or hang out in the Rainforest on a heat tile lounger, in a hot tub, or in the scented showers. You’ll melt into a puddle of pure relaxation after a massage, body wrap, facial, or an hour or two in the Rainforest.
Senses Spa Juice Bar
Cruise lines are famous for imbibing in adult beverages, and Disney Cruise Line has plenty of good options for alcoholic drinks, but the Senses Spa juice bar provides a healthy alternative. Choose a drink made with fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as mix-in supplements.
The adult pool area has always been a lovely “big kids” sanctuary on the Disney, and with the latest dry dock it has a new addition: Satellite Falls. This pool with waterfall offers a low key adult relaxation spot surrounded by covered lounge chairs.
The District is the adult nightlife spot, with a wide variety of clubs, including the champagne bar Pink, the 687 sports bar, and Evolution, the place for shows and dancing. My personal favorite is Skyline, with its ever-changing city views that will make you forget you’re out at sea.
The Disney Dream features a number of classes for adults, including wine tastings, martini tastings, and mixology classes. Not only do you learn something, but you get to imbibe in a variety of delicious adult beverages.
Castaway Cay is an island paradise for all ages. Everyone is welcome on the family beach, but if it gets a little too hectic, adults can retreat to Serenity Bay. It’s a slice of pristine beach for the 18 and older crowd, and lunch is even served nearby.
Palo and Remy
Palo and Remy are the two adults-only restaurants on the Disney Dream. You can enjoy them even if you have kids on board, as they can eat with their kids club group. Palo features upscale Italian cuisine, while Remy is a full gourmet experience. All of the Dream’s restaurants are good, but Palo and Remy take it to the next level.
