Disney Cruise Line
Looking for a high-quality, high-value family vacation experience unlike any you’ve ever had before? Then let's talk about Disney Cruise Line.
As parents, cruising with Disney is hands-down one of the the BEST family vacations we have ever taken. So many times, vacationing with your family feels like "just a different dishwasher." Your responsibilities as parents really don't change all that much. But on a Disney Cruise Line vacation, Mom and Dad really do get a break!
How is this possible, you ask? There’s plenty to do both together and apart, which gives you the opportunity to create truly awesome family memories, and give everyone their own space, too. Traveling with Disney Cruise Line also allows your family some independence aboard the ship. With lots of activities designed to share and just as many designed to let your kids feel independent, it’s the perfect balance of family togetherness and personal downtime.
Why Disney Cruise Line
Traveling with the family on Disney Cruise Line is a breeze. There really is something for everyone. Once onboard the ship, you can spend as much time together as a family as you’d like, followed by as little or as much independent time as you want as well. Younger kids will take one look at the Disney Oceaneer’s Club (ages 3-12) and never look back. (Seriously — they can pilot the Millennium Falcon.) Older kids will love making new friends in the teen-only clubs Edge (11-14) and Vibe (ages 14-17). Adults even have dedicated areas of the ship just for them. With Disney Cruise Line, you can split up, enjoy your own activities, and join back up to share the memories.
If you do decide to split up, Disney Cruise Line makes it super easy to keep in touch. You can use the Navigator app, or “wave phones,” which are provided for you to use onboard the ship free of charge. This is a great opportunity to give kids little taste of freedom in a safe environment.
On a Disney cruise, there is no need to jump through hoops to plan every detail in advance. Your days can be as full or as empty as you like. You can kick back and lounge on the deck following a trip to the spa, or get your sweat on while on the sports deck where you can compete in a little basketball or try virtual golf. Lounge in a recliner or pull a chair right up to the water, or try your hand at the rock climbing wall.
Don’t forget about Castaway Cay! Disney’s private island is chock full of fun, with opportunities to relax on the beach or try water activities like snorkeling in the lagoon or scuba diving. You can even reserve a massage cabana. There’s so much to do on Castaway Cay, you’ll be ready to go back before you even leave!
Your accommodations and activities include all the bells and whistles you’ve come to expect with Disney resorts, and you won't feel "nickel-and-dimed" like you may on other cruise lines. In fact, we’ve never had a negative review from any one of our Disney Cruise Line travelers. If you’ve never cruised, even if you aren’t a hardcore Disney fan, Disney Cruise Line is the perfect opportunity for ocean travel.

Quick Tips: Five Things to Know
- 1Get a passport for everyone.
We always suggest having a passport for every member of your party. While there are some cruise itineraries that may not require a passport, it is important to know that you cannot re-enter the US by air without a valid passport. If an emergency situation forces you to return to the US, without a passport you would be unable to do so.
- 2Plan ahead.
Certain itineraries book up quickly, especially some of the more popular stateroom categories. If you have your heart set on cruising to a particular destination or itinerary, or during the holidays, you should book well in advance. Booking in advance can sometimes be the way to get the best price on your cruise. As the ship fills up, the price goes up!
- 3Motion Sickness? Fear Not!
