Playing and Relaxing Onboard
Playing and Relaxing Onboard
Cruise ships are often called floating hotels, but “mobile resort” is much closer to the truth. Like the legendary “Borscht Belt” hotels of New York’s Catskill Mountains, the Disney cruise offers a bewildering array of entertainment, recreation, and enrichment opportunities from sunup way into the wee hours.
The Disney Cruise Line has become legendary for its pacesetting children’s and teens’ programs, and it may seem like an ocean-going summer camp. With the kids’ programs open all day and well into the night, even Mom and Dad get a vacation.
Despite their emphasis on family travel, the Disney cruises are a summer camp for all ages, boasting a full range of adult-oriented activities. The single most obvious omission is a gambling casino—you’ll have to be satisfied with onboard bingo and in-port casinos.
Leave time for relaxation as well as playing. On a cruise, it’s just as easy to overplay as it is to overeat. You’ll be tempted to fill every available hour with shipboard fun, but you’ll have a far more enjoyable cruise by picking only the most tempting morsels. If you shop ‘til you drop in port and play ‘til you plotz (collapse) onboard, you’ll be one very weary vacationer.
We start this chapter with an introduction to the Personal Navigator, your cruise’s daily gazette. Then it’s time to prep you for your first day onboard. There’s a lot to do, and it’s particularly hectic for first-time cruisers. From there, we move on to describe shipboard activities for families, teens, kids, and adults—this is where you learn about the famous kids’ program and adult entertainment offerings. Next, in-depth details are in order—the swimming pools, deck parties, films, stateroom TV, live entertainment, surfing (the World Wide Web), the spa, and lounges all get their moment in the limelight. Finally, now that you’re completely exhausted, we help you kick back and relax, and share some insider tips. Shuffleboard, anyone?
