Description
  • Family-friendly cruises with roomier-than-average staterooms
  • Nostalgic ships offer elegance with subtle nods to Disney


When Disney execs decided to enter the cruise business they looked back to the 1920's for inspiration. The result: Both Disney Magic (1998) and Disney Wonder (1999) resemble luxurious ocean liners of a bygone era that just happen to have all the modern bells and whistles to boot. The twin ships' elongated dark blue hulls, matching red funnels and elaborate yellow insignias make these sleek ships a beautiful sight to behold in port.

Inside, the ambience is casually elegant with plenty of subtle nods to the Mouse that started it all, from the etched-in-pewter characters bordering the atrium to the hidden mini Mickeys in the adults-only restaurant's china pattern. What Disney Cruise Line does best though is prove that "elegant" and "family friendly" don't have to be mutually exclusive.

Disney offers one of the most distinctive cruise experiences afloat. With these ships, Disney has introduced a number of innovations. Chief among them are its cabins with a bath-and-a-half and a rotating dining room schedule in which passengers eat at three different restaurants, albeit with the same tablemates and wait staff. It was the first cruise line to launch the "soda card" concept, an idea which has been picked up by competitors, and now they've even gone one better, offering soda gratis in the three restaurants and at the self-service beverage stations on the pool deck.

Equally distinctive is what Disney ships don't have: casinos or libraries.

Though the line has been operating a two-ship fleet for nearly a decade, Disney called upon Germany's Meyer Werft to build two new ships. Disney Dream (launched January 2011) and Disney Fantasy (March 31, 2012) are significantly larger than Disney Magic and Disney Wonder -- two decks higher and measuring 128,690 tons. While the passenger count is 2,500, it's important to note that Disney's load factor is the highest in the industry (remember: lots of kids), the typical passenger count onboard will be in the range of 3,500 to 4,000.
