Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Red Loop. Today we are sharing where you can have a date night and find romance at Disney
When we decided to go on a Disney Cruise for our 10th wedding anniversary a lot of people wondered why. A cruise sure but Disney? Isn’t that more for kids? Disney Cruises are perfect for a family get away but they are also perfect for Disney loving couples. We had an amazing time and couldn’t be happier with our choice. There are plenty of things to see and do away from the kids.
Gifts & Amenities
Disney Cruise Line offers several packages that you can order prior to sailing. We added the Romance for 2 package that included two Disney Cruise Line robes, a bottle of Prosecco, a box of chocolates and a red rose. Everything was waiting for us in our stateroom when we boarded. It was a nice to add a little something to celebrate our anniversary. The robes are really nice and make a great souvenir.
Palo and Remy
If you are on a cruise with several days at sea you can also attend brunch at both restaurants. We did both for the first time and now we’re hooked! Just keep in mind that reservations are required at both restaurants, there is a dress code, and additional charges.
For the ultimate romantic getaway consider sailing on the concierge level. Our anniversary cruise was our first experience and we are now spoiled! On the Fantasy our room was located near the adult-exclusive pools, sun deck, and spa. The concierge lounge and sun deck are family friendly we were the only ones around a lot of the time. It was fun to be pampered and made our celebration even more special.
Adult Only Areas
Several areas on Disney’s ships are reserved for those 18 and over. We’ve enjoyed visiting the Cove Cafe on the dream, Satellite Falls on the Fantasy, and the sun decks. There are also nightclubs and lounges on each ship for adults to enjoy. Castaway Cay also has an adult exclusive area, Serenity Bay.
I’m not a spa person but there are several options for couples including the Senses Spa Villas which offer an indoor treatment suite, a private outdoor verandah, hot tub and chaise lounge. Or do what I do and let your spouse enjoy the spa with a pass for the duration of your cruise. 🙂
Another great adult-exclusive activity are the beverage seminars. We attended the Stem to Stern Wine Tasting where the sommelier from Palo taught us about several different types of wine and the Chocolate and Liquor Tasting which paired dark, milk, and white chocolate with wine, champagne, and scotch.
Offerings vary on each sailing but you can experience wine, champagne, beer, and martini tastings to name a few. I really want to try out the Mixology seminar next time. Check the navigator when you get on board to see what is being offered and to find out where to sign up. There is a fee for each seminar but they are worth it!
If you are celebrating an anniversary or another special occasion make sure to note it on your reservation. We received anniversary buttons, a special dessert at dinner where our servers also sang to us, the beautiful plate above during our brunch at Palo, and a special towel surprise in our stateroom one evening.
