Those sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wonder west coast cruises with stops in San Francisco now have a rare opportunity to visit the Sonoma Valley winery owned by John and Nancy Lasseter.
As the Disney Fantasy makes its Transatlantic voyage to Pier 88 in Manhattan, where it will be christened on March 1, Disney Cruise Line has been releasing a series of video blogs with Cruise Directors Brent Davies and Ray Smale. Until now, the reality has been that the videos have all been apparently produced before the ship set sail (and who can blame them with such poor internet connectivity in the middle of the Atlantic?) and haven’t really contained any new information. That all changed, however, with yesterday’s entry which not only looks at some of the new Enchanted Art exclusive to the Disney Fantasy, but a decent first look at the Muppet Midship Detective Agency, also exclusive to the ship.
Disney Cruise Line, the leader in family cruising, is once again reinventing onboard children’s experiences. Through an entirely new approach to youth activities, kids can let their imaginations set sail by customizing their cruise vacation. More youth activities than ever before are available and children choose experiences based on interest, not age.
Exciting new youth activities and dedicated children’s spaces are available now on the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder and are coming to the Disney Dream beginning with the ship’s maiden voyage in January 2011.
“The changes within Disney Cruise Line youth activities will allow children freedom to create a customized experience onboard our ships,” said Disney Cruise Line Vice President of Entertainment Jim Urry. “Children can select their own adventures and immersive experiences for a truly personalized, memorable cruise vacation.”
On Disney Cruise Line, children can personalize their cruise vacation by selecting activities and events, regardless of age. Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab are open to children age 3 to 12 on the Disney Wonder and age 3 to 10 on the Disney Magic.
While Disney Cruise Line will continue to recommend activities that appeal to specific maturity levels and ages, the entire menu of offerings is open to every child. With this evolutionary approach to shipboard youth activities, children and parents select programs based on the specific interests of each child to create a customized and very personalized experience. Best of all, children of different ages — siblings, extended family and friends — can participate in youth activities together throughout their cruise.
The majority of children’s events and free-time activities occur within dedicated youth spaces on the ship and on Castaway Cay. As always, Disney Cruise Line youth activities are supervised by specially trained, experienced counselors.
Specific program information is available to guests on the day of check-in at the Youth Activities registration desk located in the Disney cruise ship terminal building prior to boarding, or onboard in the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab.
