Wi-Fi & the Navigator

Even on vacation, we want to be connected sometimes and Disney Cruise Line makes that easy with Wi-Fi available throughout the ship. But keep in mind that it’s not free for the entire trip. Before you get on board, be sure to download the DCL Navigator app for your smartphone. It doesn’t do much prior…

Doing Laundry On Vacation? Yuck…Or Not!

Nobody wants to do laundry when you’re on vacation, but sometimes a little pre-planning can help with the over-packing that many of us are guilty of doing! All of Disney Cruise Line’s ships have multiple laundry facilities and they can be a convenient way to cut down on packing, especially on cruises that are 5…

It’s Loud – But It’s Fun

There’s no doubt that every element of a Disney Cruise is a step above any other ship on the sea. When you’re on board a Disney ship, even the necessary sound of the horn is pure entertainment. You might hear It’s A Small World, A Pirate’s Life For Me, When You Wish Upon A Star,…

The Disney Cruise Grown Up Hideaway

If you’re looking for an “almost” secret hideaway on your Disney cruise that offers  a relaxing atmosphere, specialty coffees, alcoholic offerings, and complimentary snacks, then Cove Café will be a regular stop for you. Many guests walk right past the tinted windows and unassuming “Cove Cafe” sign without ever being curious enough to step inside….

Best Buffet On the Ocean

The buffet on all four Disney Cruise Line ships is called Cabanas. It’s simply the best buffet on the ocean. Some would call that a fact, some would call that my opinion. It is definitely fact in my book, but then again I’m an expert on my opinion. Sail away on Disney Cruise Line and…

Inside Stateroom – Worth the Savings?

I’ll admit it, I’ve been spoiled on nearly a dozen cruises.  I’ve never had a stateroom that didn’t have a verandah/balcony where I could step outside and get some fresh air. As you can imagine, I was a little apprehensive about taking the step to an Inside Stateroom.  That’s a stateroom that not only doesn’t…

Tropical Island 5K – It’s Worth It

Whether you’re a runner, a walker, or just want to be one of the first people off your Disney Cruise Ship at Disney’s private island, the Castaway Cay 5K is for you. If your Disney Cruise has a stop at the most perfect private island, Castaway Cay, there is a 5K run/walk that is the…

Cruise Line Coffee Hack

I like to start my day with coffee. That may be an understatement, maybe I NEED to start my day with coffee. On a Disney Cruise, that’s not a hard thing to do because you can grab coffee up at the buffet and even at the drink stations that are up on deck. However, if…

A Theater On Board? Nope…Two Of Them!

On a Disney Cruise there is always something happening. Activities, entertainment, character meet-and-greets, plenty of food and beverages, deck parties, tours, spa appointments, relaxation, and usually plenty of sun up on the deck. It’s hard to do it all! This blog is about the indoor entertainment in not just one, but TWO on-board theaters that…

Adult Beverages on Board DCL

While a Disney Cruise certainly caters to the kids and kids-at-heart on board, adult beverages are available throughout the ship at bars, clubs, restaurants and even in your stateroom! Unlike many other cruise lines, Disney allows you to bring a small amount of your own alcohol on board. You are allowed to bring either two…
