How to Have a Romantic Disney Cruise (Even if the Kids are With You)


Spend Time in the Spa

When it comes to romantic things to do on the ship, the spa has to be one of the very best options. Theres nothing quite like relaxing next to your love while getting the ultimate couples massage in Senses Spa and Salon. In fact, we think the only thing better would be a couples Swedish massage in a cabana on the beach at Castaway Cay, something you can book through the onboard spa.  If you wish to experience one of these amazing couples massage options, be sure to book early. This will ensure you get the time and day you prefer.

Reserve a Table at Palo or Remy

Another romantic experience found onboard Disney ships is the specialty dining. Whether your ship is home to Palo or Remy, you’re sure to enjoy a meal with your special someone in an adults-only dining location. The atmosphere in these eateries is upscale, the food is delectable, and the staff is wonderfully accommodating. Best of all, dining at Palo or Remy is an excellent excuse to dress up, something that makes every occasion feel just a bit more romantic.  Again, you will want to book your reservation at Palo or Remy in advance. The preferred time slots at these restaurants fill up pretty quickly, so don’t delay.

Head to the Hot Tub

Need a free romantic activity to do while the kids are hanging out in the kids club? Head to the adults-only hot tub.  The hot tubs are open all day long (but do close late at night), making this an awesome last-minute plan if you happen to find a few extra minutes of time alone. You can relax, chat, and enjoy a drink or two before heading to pick up the kids.

Watch the Sun Set

Another awesome, free, and romantic option is simply to watch the sunset. Sunsets in the middle of the ocean are absolutely spectacular. Why not head to Deck 4 and take a stroll while holding hands and enjoying the gorgeous pinks, oranges, and yellows of the setting sun? Alternatively, you could use your private veranda to watch the sun go down. Either way, you’ll get the perfect backdrop for a romantic date night.

A Disney cruise provides the perfect balance of a family vacation with ample alone time for you and your significant other.  We promise, your whole family will love it and you just might rekindle your romance to boot!
