Overlooked Attractions Aboard (continued)
Overlooked Attractions Aboard (continued)
Lounges—There are many quiet spots where you can relax with a tropical drink or a glass of wine. Besides the lounges we described on page 204 - page 205 you’ll find Preludes/Hollywood and Wine (deck 4/3 forward), open for pre-show and afterglow drinks—all ages welcome; Signals/Cove Bar (deck 9/11 forward) is next to the adult pool so it’s limited to ages 18 & up—it’s typically open until 7:00 pm; Outlook Lounge (Dream Class, 14 mid) overlooks the sea and is removed from the hustle of the lower decks. Promenade Lounge/Vista Café (deck 3/4 midship) are family-friendly lounges convenient to the Lobby Atrium, usually open to midnight.
Guest Entertainer Workshops—Seven-night and up cruises have entertainers onboard for the variety shows, and sometimes these entertainers give demonstrations and/or workshops in magic, ventriloquism, juggling, etc. Check your Personal Navigator.
This throne on the Dream makes a great photo op!
Coffee or Lunch With the Crew—Have a chat with crew members and learn about life onboard. Various sessions may be offered for different ages and interest groups.
Treasure Hunts—We just love hunting for “treasure,” those little-known bits of trivia and hidden details throughout the ships. You may even have the opportunity do a scavenger hunt on Castaway Cay (see page 263). And you can certainly make your own treasure hunts to challenge your friends and family (see Peer Reviewer Lori Ketcherside's photo scavenger hunts at http://www.adventurermom.com/2015/09/dcl-scavenger-hunt-printable). And if that’s not enough, the Dream Class’ “Enchanted Art” (see below) is also the focus of self-paced, detective-themed, interactive adventures, Mickey’s Midship Detective Agency (see page 199).
Photo Surfing—You’ll have your photo taken by Disney’s professional photographers many times. Kids in particular are in lots of shots. Even if you don’t want to buy, it’s fun to “surf” the photo on the touch-screen photo kiosks near Shutters and elsewhere—these self-serve terminals let you edit your photos and apply fun borders! You can even "surf" from the comfort of your stateroom, on your stateroom TV.
Art Browsing—If you enjoy art, take a stroll around the ship to appreciate the various prints, paintings, and sculptures that fill the Disney ships. Stairways contain a good share of the artwork onboard but are often overlooked because many people prefer elevators. The lobbies and dining rooms on the Dream and Fantasy abound with art worth seeking out, including some fabulous mosaics. The Dream Class ships also feature Enchanted Art, framed images that come to life when you approach. Revisit them often, as the art on display may change. Imagineers have told us that, in the future, the Enchanted Art may even recognize you, to keep delivering new experiences!
Hair Braiding—For that authentic “I’ve been to the islands” look, how about cornrows or braids, ladies? Get the “look” early in the cruise from the braiders up by the pools on deck 9/11. Hair braiding is also available on Castaway Cay—see page 262. Tip: Be sure to apply sunscreen to that newly-exposed scalp!
