New in 2011, take a 7 Night Disney Alaska Cruise and relax! Relax knowing the kids are having the time of their lives with their favorite Disney characters. But a Disney Cruise isn't just for kids! My husband and I LOVED our recent Disney Cruise - without kids!
Enjoy, really enjoy, some alone time taking in the breathtaking scenery of the Inside Passage knowing your kids are happy, safe, & well cared for playing with new friends, new games, & enjoying new experiences of their own! In fact, the most difficult thing on the entire Alaska family cruise may very well be getting them to leave!
Disney Cruise Line is known for their family vacations making special accommodations for both parents and children and often feature costumed Disney Characters roaming the ships.
One of the best features of a Disney Alaskan Cruise is that unlike all other cruise lines, they allow kids to play together regardless of age. That way siblings can play together if they wish! This feature alone demonstrates Disney's commitment to providing the best family vacation options.
And the kids get to choose which activities interest them the most. Although activities are suggested, you & your child make the decision in what they participate in. And with over 100 activities including the Piston Cup Challenge, So you want to be a Pirate, Ratatouille Cooking School, and more your child will have the time of their lives!
Doesn't that sound nice?! Ahhh....I can feel the stress melting away already. :-)
But don't think for one moment that a Disney Alaska Cruise is only for kids & families! My husband and I recently took a Disney Cruise, and being DINKS (Double Income, No Kids), we were worried that we would be overrun by little ones. It couldn't have been more opposite! There were simply so much for the kids to do to keep them busy, we didn't see much of them unless at dinner or at the shows.
And the Cruise was one of the best ones we have ever been on. Everything was perfect! The food, entertainment, shore excursions, cast members (employees!), ship, activities - it was one of those cruises that we were ready to book our next trip before even leaving the ship!
There were plenty of Adult-Only places that we staked out before departing, only to find we didn't need them since the kids were kept so busy!
