Today, Disney announced it has received two awards from U.S News & World Report.
For five consecutive years now, Disney Cruise Line has been named the top cruise line for families and trips to the Caribbean.
These rankings are given based on cruise ship quality, brand reputation, and many other factors. According to U.S. News & World Report,
“Disney Cruise Ships receive kudos from families and critics alike for their kid-friendly atmosphere, whimsical amenities and spacious staterooms. The cruise line’s Disney theme is understated enough that sentimental adults looking to reconnect with their childhood fantasies will enjoy sailing just as much as the kids.”
U.S. News & World Report
I’ve been on a few Disney cruises and I could not agree more with this award. I have been aboard a Disney ship, as both a child and an adult, and Disney has done unparalleled work to make guests of all ages feel like there is something for them. As a child, there’s tons of activities, amazing character interactions, and food/beverage created just for kids.
For adults, I think a Disney Cruise can be just as magical. Disney has done a great job, as U.S. News states, of creating a classic cruise liner with subtle Disney decor every where. While Disney’s ships feature no casino, they have devoted nearly an entire deck to adult entertainment. This includes several different themed bars and lounges, a night club, and much more. At Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, Disney offers both a family beach and an adult beach. This offers adult guests the opportunity to get away from the bustle of a family vacation to a quiet, relaxing place. This is mirrored onboard every Disney ship with a private pool and deck area, also just for adults. I believe there are many more options onboard a Disney Cruise than most people know. Everything from the elegant dining to world class, Broadway style, entertainment. All of which is included in your fare.
You can’t deny that Disney Cruise Line is much more expensive than most of its cruise competitors. However, I think the value you get onboard is more than worth the additional cost.
