We keep saying that nobody has to be bored, even on a long cruise, and here’s more proof! Disney produces a full schedule of shipboard tours, seminars, and programs for guests 18 and older. You don’t even have to register or pay extra in most cases.

Disney’s Art of Entertaining—These presentations showcase a senior chef who prepares a dish, allowing you to sample it. They also include tips on place setting, decorating, and napkin folding. Some have wine sampling. Programs include Great Expectations: The Appetizer, Dazzling Desserts, and Signature Entrée. Available on 7-night and longer itineraries only.

Galley Tour—Enjoy an adults-only guided tour of the kitchens on deck 3. Available on all ships, but may only be offered as a Castaway Club perk. Ask at Guest Services. See page 166 for more details.

Disney Behind the Scenes—Presentations by a Disney historian, actor, or artist (either a special guest or regular crew member), usually presented in the Buena Vista Theatre. These presentations vary in length and by topic but they are all entertaining and well worth the time. Past programs have included a Stage Works Tour (meet the stage production crew members and go up on the stage to take a look around at the set and props); Costuming Tour (see and even wear some of the costumes used in the show); and a Q&A session with the Walt Disney Theatre cast (hear stories and get answers to questions).

Innovations: Theme Parks & Resorts—A fairly recent addition to some 7-night cruises, this presentation offers an inside look at the design and technology behind Disney’s famous theme parks and hotels.

Hands-on Activities—Adults-only lessons in animation and origami are recent offerings, typically held in Animators Palate.

Disney’s Navigator Series—Programs include Art of the Theme Ship Tour, a look at the ship’s design and decor from the Imagineer’s point of view, and Captain’s Corner, a Q&A session with the senior staff covering just about everything involving the cruise and the ship—it’s very impressive, informative, and fun. Available on 7-night and longer itineraries only.

Wine Tasting Seminar—This is a good place to mention the wine tasting seminar held on all cruises in either Palo or one of the lounges. For $15/adult (21 and up only), the Cellar Master introduces you to wine types, gives you tips on identifying wines, and shows you how to properly taste a wine. Seminar includes tastings of four to six wines. You may also receive a commemorative pin for attending the seminar. (Pin traders take note!) Reservations are required—stop by Guest Services to make reservations. Available on all ships.

Beer Tasting—Check your Personal Navigator for a beer tasting session held in O’Gill’s Pub/Crown & Fin Pub/Pub 687 (deck 3 forward/4 aft).

Towel Animal Folding—Find out how to make those cute animals they leave in your stateroom each night—check your Personal Navigator for time and place.

Canvas and Cocktails (Magic Only)—Enjoy cocktails while you create your own Disney painting, such as the Enchanted Rose from Beauty & the Beast. Two-hour experience.
