Curator’s statement

Disney Cruise Line is a place for family and friends alike to have an amazing vacation while seeing multiple destinations. Although it's great for families, there are tons of options for adult-only spaces when you're looking for some time away from the kids. From the soothing aromas of a coffee shop to exciting gameshows and dance parties — there's a place for adults to relax, rejuvenate and let their own inner child out.

Things to do in Disney Cruise

A restaurant on cruise with sea in the background.

Cove Café - comforting secluded cafe with coffee, specialty drinks and teas. Hint: They have a punch card that gets you a free drink!

Senses Spa - full relaxation area with heated tile reclining seats and ocean-view Jacuzzis. You can also get massages, facials and more in this area.

Rainforest Showers - A set of 4 aromatherapy showers within Senses Spa to help you get in touch with your senses and create a healing and refreshing escape.

Serenity Bay Adults Beach - A private adults-only beach with soft sand and crystal-clear waters. Beach chairs, umbrellas and hammocks are all provided. You may spot a pelican or two! Hint: you can rent snorkel equipment and tubes at the shack on this beach — you won't have to carry it all the way from the children's beach!

Palo and Remy Restaurants - multi-course seated dinner locations with added flair! Head's up: These restaurants are adults-only, have a dress code and cost additional $$ - but it is so worth it! Hint: try the Agnolotti at Palo - it is AMAZING!

Adults-Only Pools & Jacuzzis - Enjoy the sun and get a tan without getting splashed by kids. Some of the pools even have swim-up bars!

Adult Trivia, Gameshows and Entertainment - they have at least two options every night for adult-only entertainment in the nightclubs and lounges. There are Silent Dance Parties, Couples Gameshow competitions, Live musicians and so much more. There's never a dull night!

Lounges - There are several different themed lounges aboard each Disney Cruise Line ship. In these lounges they hold presentations where you can learn more about the theme of each ship, how ships are made, and the history of Disney Cruise Line.

Day Trips

If you are interested in Port Adventures, some options have age restrictions. Take a look and see which ones are 18+ to spend your time shoreside without watching for little ones!
