Disney Cruise Line’s four ships, the Dream, the Fantasy, the Magic, and the Wonder, have something to offer every type of traveler. With the beaches of Castaway Cay, port adventures for extended families to enjoy together, and onboard kids’ clubs for your littlest Mouseketeers, nobody in your travel party will be bored!

Sometimes, though, you need to escape from the hustle and bustle for awhile. That’s where Disney cruise date night comes in. Here, you’ll discover the top five date ideas on any Disney ship.

1. Get a taste of Europe.

No matter where your next Disney cruise departure takes you, you can spend one night imagining you’re in Europe at one of two adult-exclusive restaurant options.

All four ships in the fleet feature Palo, a sleek Italian-inspired space with a menu that features Northern Italian flavors, including carefully selected wines, seared scallops with celery root puree, and penne arrabbiata.

Guests who depart on Dream or Fantasy itineraries can also dine at Remy. This high-end French restaurant features a seasonally-revolving menu, but your meal will always begin with a delectable chilled champagne drink known as a “Collette.” Advance reservations are required for both Palo and Remy.

2. Take in a show.

Every Disney cruise ship offers Broadway-style entertainment that is perfect for date night. You might even forget you aren’t in New York! One difference: you can carry a cocktail from the D Lounge or any other shipboard bar into the theatre.

The Dream’s rendition of Beauty and the Beast, inspired by the live-action remake, was the first cruise ship show to ever win the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions’ Best Theatrical Performance award. Also on the Dream is Disney’s Believe, which tells the tale of a workaholic dad who reignites his relationship with his daughter thanks to Disney magic. Believe can be seen on the Fantasy as well.

Guests onboard the Disney Fantasy and the Wonder can take-in Frozen, a Musical Spectacular, which features songs from the hit films. Disney Wonder and Disney Magic vacationers are also able to watch Disney Dreams – An Enchanted Classic, which features a host of Walt Disney characters convincing a young girl that belief in her dreams and her family can change her life.

No matter what kinds of stories you enjoy as a couple, you’re sure to find the perfect date night show on your next cruise. Advance booking is not required for live entertainment, but it is wise to arrive early because seating is limited.

3. Visit a private island.

If you are on a Bahamian cruise or a Western Caribbean cruise, you’ll get to enjoy at least one day at Disney’s Castaway Cay. There’s nothing that says “romance” like private island life! Castaway Cay offers all sorts of activities, including relaxing on the adults-only Serenity Beach, taking part in the early-morning 5K, and shore excursions like snorkeling and jet skiing.

If you have the budget, consider reserving one of Castaway Cay’s exclusive cabanas for the day-date of a lifetime. These are located in a secluded area of the island and each includes private hammocks, beach chairs with umbrellas, and an entire day all to yourselves. You’ll be able to stay in your cabana until you are required to return to your ship for departure.

4. Register for a beverage tasting.

The various bars and lounges available on all four Disney cruise ships offer beverage tastings for adult guests. This is an incredible way to connect with your partner and discover some amazing new drinks along the way!

No matter what your libation of choice is, you’re sure to find a tasting that is right up your alley. From amari tastings to bourbon tastings to chocolate and liquor pairings, there’s no shortage of options available on all DCL sailings. Advance reservations are required for this activity.

5. Indulge your “Senses.”

Senses Spa & Salon can be found on all of the ships in the Disney fleet. It’s an idyllic spot for couples to escape to for an hour or an entire afternoon. Whether you want to schedule a massage-for-two or meet after individual treatments, you’re sure to be more relaxed and revitalized than you have been in years after a visit to Senses. Advance booking is recommended.
