Disney Cruise Line was incorporated into the Walt Disney Company in 1996, and currently operates four great family ships. They own a private island in the Bahamas called Disney Castaway Cay, which adds to the adventure and magic unparalleled by other cruise lines that cater for families.

As expected, entertainment is a huge part of the experience on board Disney ships, including the flagship, Disney Dream, which holds 4000 passengers. Broadway-style shows are spellbinding, and kids or infants can easily be entertained throughout the day. There’s a New York loft club for teens who want to escape from adults and play their favourite video games, whilst Pirate Night and Character Greetings from all your favourite Disney characters will bring a smile to anybody’s face. Along with this, there are private spa treatments, fitness centres and intimate music lounges for adults who want to unwind.

With epic itineraries in Europe, Caribbean, Alaska, Bahamas, Transatlantic and Panama Canal, it’s easy to see why families choose Disney Cruise Line, as it caters for everybody
