Age is Just a Number Onboard a Disney Cruise

May 27, 2014 | By | 1 Comment

Seven nights of serenity, smiles and reminiscing made up z51red and his wife’s first cruise aboard Disney Fantasy.
Many people tend to pin Disney as appealing primarly to kids, but for these 60-somethings, the ship had just the right balance of fun for everyone.
For starters, embarkation was seamless and allowed z51red, his wife, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter to explore the ship before settling into their home for the next week: A spacious cabin with a verandah that made for perfect morning coffee retreats.
Throughout the cruise, z51red and his wife rejoiced amidst the peace and quiet in the numerous adults-only areas, while their granddaughter engaged in the many kids’ activities onboard. The delightful service only added to their enjoyment.
Each port of call also brought more Kodak moments and memories that included feeding stingrays and snorkeling on the line’s private island, Castaway Cay.
Z51red’s final words sum it up: “Don’t be concerned about Disney being a cruise line for only those traveling with children. My wife and I are definitely looking forward to another Disney cruise, with or without my children or grandchild.”
Read z51red’s full review for more tidbits on the overall cruise, plus a few quick tips.
For their efforts, z51red and four other Reviewers of the Week — Traveler4k, Papa_Bob_New_Jersey, darbun, and jdbirch — receive Cruise Critic logo items.

      Sorry have little good to say about DCL. We asked if we could get a wheelchair, we where told they are not in the wheelchair business, we just needed to get to the room to get our scooter. DH had to make his way to the room with the help of another quest. Went to guest services to ask about the scooter and was told I would need to go down in the ship for it. SOME SERVICE!!! SOME CARING. Do you really thing they care. By the way Norwegian, RCI and Carnival all provide this service. We have cruised 17 times with Disney.and that is coming to and.
