Disney Cruises are a great way of getting the Disney experience whilst sailing to some of the most exotic locations in the world. Just like other cruise ships, guests can expect a wide choice of activities to keep them entertained whilst travelling, children can take part in the many youth clubs with all the characters from the Disneyland Paris park, watch the latest Disney 3D movies, live entertainment shows, a variety of pools suitable for children and adults, spa facilities and nightclubs and adult only bars.
There are currently three Disney Cruise Line ships and there are plans to make a forth next year, providing more excursions to the Caribbean, Mexican Riviera and Alaska. Because the popularity of family cruises has increased in recent years, Disney now want to expand in to the UK cruise market. Having only launched in 1998, the Disney Cruise Line has become a leader in the cruise industry in the US. Below is a brief description of what you can expect on some of the cruise lines.
After leaving Los Angeles on the Mexican Riviera Cruise, travel past the glorious Baja California peninsula to reach the pristine white beaches and ports of Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Manzanillo. These port towns offer wonderful local markets selling small souvenirs and jewellery, plus have great outdoor sporting activities. Puerto Vallarta is a favourite destination for fantastic water activities. It has perfect coves for snorkelling and scuba diving, plus guests have the opportunity to go whale watching and swim with dolphins. However, if you fancy some time on land for a change, going on a jeep safari through the jungle, bike riding and hiking is also available.
Setting sail from Barcelona in Spain, the Mediterranean cruise stops off at some of the most famous and oldest cities in the world. Guests can learn about a cities ancient heritage, spending all day sightseeing and experiencing a wonderful array of cultures, then come back to their cosy cruise room to relax. Some of the destinations included in the Europe cruise are Cannes, Naples, Rome, Florence, Gibraltar and Malta. Look in awe at the magnificent Colosseum and famous Sistine Chapel in Rome, learn about the 2,500 year old city of Pompeii in Naples, and visit the beautiful French Riviera, and the city favoured by the rich and famous, Cannes. Unfortunately a trip to Eurodisney Paris isn’t included in this trip.
The Caribbean cruise offers 6, 7, 8 and 11 day cruises, all setting sail from Port Canaveral in Florida. There are so many beautiful Caribbean islands to be enjoyed that the cruise has been split into different choices, there is Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean cruises. With its pristine beaches, including the Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, and beautiful clear waters, perfect for scuba diving in Cozumel, the Caribbean cruise is ideal for a relaxing break. It may not be a cheap holiday, but the memories are sure to last a lifetime. Travel in style whilst your hop from one beautiful island to another, stopping off at Aruba, Barbados and Martinique to name just a few. Guests also get to visit Disney’s private Island ‘Castaway Cay’, an island larger than the park at Disneyland Paris. This island has been themed to look like a castaway community with buildings looking like they have been made out of a shipwreck.
