Two weeks ago, for Mother’s Day, I headed out for three days of fun on the Disney Dream with a group of close friends. We didn’t have any kids with us, and yet still had a blast. Did you know that the Disney Cruise Line offers many fun activities for adults? Although you’ll absolutely find lots of fabulous things for families and kids to do on board the ships, there are plenty of activities offered for adults. And, you don’t have to travel without kids to enjoy them. Since the kids’ clubs on the ships are so fun for children, you may find yourself with some extra time alone.

Here are my favorite adult things to do on the Disney Cruise Line.
Visit the Adult Sundecks and Pool
Last year, when we were on the Disney Fantasy for 7-days, my kids would visit the kids’ club each afternoon. My husband would head to the gym, and I’d grab my book and go to Satellite Falls, a relaxing, adult-only area on board the Disney Fantasy (soon to also be on the Disney Dream). When I would get hot, I’d jump into the light falls to cool down. You can also enjoy an alcoholic beverage – there are plenty of waiters to take your order.
Hit the Spa
Too busy to visit a spa during your regular busy life? Visit the on-board spa for a relaxing treatment. You can also choose to get a pass to the rain forest room, where you can relax with saunas, steam rooms, specialty showers, and heated deck chairs.
Take a Class
During our recent girls’ trip, we took two classes – wine tasting, and mixology. Other options include tequila tasting and martini tasting. These fun , 21+ classes are offered throughout the cruise and can be booked through guest services when you get on board.
Enjoy Adult Programming
Although many of the games on board are family-friendly, you’ll find a few that are 18+. We did the adult scavenger hunt and 80s music game, and had so much fun. See your Personal Navigator for a schedule.
There are many little adult-only bars on the Disney Cruise Line, with such fun themes. My favorite is Pink (on the Disney Dream) and Ooh-La-La Lounge (on the Disney Fantasy), a cute little champagne bar.
