Disney's New Cruise Ship to Feature Teens-Only Spa
(4 p.m. EDT) -- Disney Cruise Line continues to trickle out details on its under-construction Disney Dream, which will launch in January 2011 as the first new Disney ship in more than a decade. In a recent post on the Disney Parks blog, the cruise line announced that 128,000-ton, 2,500-passenger Disney Dream will feature the Chill Spa, an area inside the ship's Senses Spa & Salon that will offer spa services to teens between the ages of 13 and 17.

The area has two designated treatment rooms, and parents will be able to send their kids off for teen-friendly facials, massages, body treatments, manicures, pedicures and more while they get their own more grown-up treatments in the main spa, catch naps in their cabins or visit the adults-only areas of the ship. The Chill Spa will also feature a separate seating area and showers, so there's truly no need to mingle with adults. Reservations can be made online before setting sail.

It's worth noting that Disney is not the first cruise line to feature a dedicated youth spa facility. Royal Caribbean's gargantuan Oasis of the Seas debuted the youth spa concept last December, offering three designated treatment rooms comprising its Y-Spa. Although no other cruise ship has a specified facility, lines including Carnival, NCL and Princess do offer youth-oriented spa treatments (think Acne Attack) in the main spas on select ships.

Additional details about the ship's onboard amenities and features have been emerging over the past several months, including those about new dining options like the introduction of the upscale, French-themed alternative restaurant Remy and the Enchanted Garden, a main dining room that will offer International cuisine and use lighting and other technology to transform its appearance as night falls. Other already-announced features include the industry's first water coaster (the AquaDuck), virtual portholes in all inside cabins and an interactive play floor.

We'll be sure to keep you posted as more details roll in.
