Activities for Adults
Activities for Adults
Kids, keep out—this page is just for grown-ups! Disney may be family-focused, but rest assured Disney hasn’t forgotten your adult needs. There are plenty of adult-oriented and adult-only activities onboard, including an entire entertainment district (see page 204). If you’re worried you’ll be bored, it’s unlikely—we never have enough time to do what we want, with or without kids. Here’s a list of specifically adult-oriented activities:
Bingo—Bingo is the only gambling onboard and attracts mostly adults. (Kids often attend and play, but you must be 18 or older to claim any winnings.) Bingo is held at least once a day in Fathoms/Azure/Promenade Lounge/D Lounge or Buena Vista Theatre. A special “Snowball” jackpot rolls over each day until won. Cards are currently about $19 for a single pack (3 cards, one per game) and $29 for a value pack (6 cards, two per game). Electronic card pads ($49–$99/session) “play” for you, and can provide more cards at a better value. Your odds of winning are higher earlier in the cruise, when fewer people are playing. Prizes (cash and gifts) are awarded daily at each game. Yeah, baby!
Dance Lessons—Learn the basics of ballroom dancing—check your Personal Navigator.
Alcoholic Beverage Tastings—There are a variety of adults-only beverage tastings, a chocolate and liquor tasting, and mixology classes in the ships' lounges (check your Navigator). "Nominal fees" (around $15) apply. Make reservations in advance at DisneyCruise.com, or once you're onboard on embarkation day at Guest Services.
Captain’s Receptions—Meet the captain at various functions, including receptions and Disney Navigator Series seminars (see page 215).
Sports—Shoot hoops or play volleyball on the sports deck (deck 10 fwd/13 aft), sharpen up your game in the golf simulator (Dream Class), play shuffleboard or run laps on deck 4, or try your hand at Ping-Pong (deck 9/11 mid). And don’t forget the exercise classes in the Senses Spa (see page 212 - page 214).
Pin Trading—Bring along your pins and trade with others. Special pin trading sessions are generally held in the Atrium Lobby—check your Personal Navigator.
Games—Play chess or backgammon in O'Gill's Pub/Crown and Fin Pub/Pub 687 or Scrabble in Keys/Cadillac Lounge. Look for pool games at the Quiet Cove pool. Check your Personal Navigator.
Auction/Art Sale at Sea—Fun to bid or just watch others bid! See page 217 for details.
Cocktail Hours—Held in the Atrium (deck 3 midship) or in the adult entertainment district’s lounges. Alas, the beverages—alcoholic or not—aren’t complimentary, with the possible exception of the Captain’s Reception.
Seminars and Tours—Get the low-down on shopping, shore excursions, and debarkation procedures with talks held in the Buena Vista Theatre (note that these talks are available on your stateroom TV if you can’t make it). And on the 7-night and longer cruises, adults can learn the art of entertaining, get behind-the-scenes peeks, and more. See page 215.
You’ll also enjoy these adult-only places: Palo and Remy restaurants (see page 169 - page 172), Senses Spa (see page 212 – page 214), the Quiet Cove pool (see page 206), the Cove Café (see page 205), Signals/Cove bar (deck 9/11 forward), the adult entertainment district (see page 204), and Serenity Bay Beach on Castaway Cay (see page 260). And while it’s not adults-only, the Buena Vista movie theater in the late evenings may show a PG-13 film (see page 208).
Tip: Check your Personal Navigator’s grid for the “Adult” rows for adult activities.
