The Disney Difference
Disney’s signature service, attention to detail and rich storytelling are some of the reasons why Disney cruises are voted among the best at sea.
Disney Crew Members are available 24 hours a day to make your vacation as captivating and carefree as possible. From the moment you arrive, you’re greeted by the smiles of Crew Members known worldwide for their personalized service and commitment to exceeding your expectations.
Every cruise offers a different kind of magic for pirates, princesses and parents alike. The moment you step aboard your Disney ship, you’ll find yourself part of a story that only Disney could create. Lavish Art Deco furnishings mingle alongside subtle nods to classic and contemporary Disney characters. Original paintings, statues and woodwork paying homage to the golden age of ocean liners envelop you in a radiant ambiance that is both rich and distinctive. And wondrous themed venues—including youth clubs, restaurants and nightclubs—carry you to faraway places where memory and magic come together.
Chart a course for more magic as you celebrate the holidays and share in special day-long celebrations on select Disney cruises. Celebrate seasonal events—Halloween and the Winter Holidays—at sea during Disney Holiday Cruises, and delight in unique meet-and-greets, entertainment and dining during Special Days at Sea—including the Frozen Deck Party and Star Wars Day at Sea.
