On the Disney Dream Cruise Ship there is a special night dubbed “Pirate Night”. On Pirate Night, a special buffet is set up inside Cabanas on Deck 11. I’ve never made it to the Pirate Night buffet because we’ve always had second seating dinner and I am just not hungry by the time the buffet rolls around.
This last cruise aboard the DREAM our cabin was near the aft of the ship and we could take the elevator located inside Cabanas down to our stateroom so I decided to walk through the buffet area and check out the watermelon sculptures I had heard legend of and I wanted to share them with you. pretty impressive huh?
What do you think of Pirate Night on the Disney Cruise Line?
The Disney Cruise Line DREAM and FANTASY have the AquaDuck so it’s only fitting that the Disney MAGIC should get its very own monster water slide! AquaDunk on the Disney Magic is a thrilling three-story body slide that begins with a surprise launch, sending guests on a near-vertical drop and through a translucent tube that extends 20 feet over the side of the ship. This new water feature will take guests for a swift and splashy ride on the Disney Magic after the ship undergoes dry dock this fall.
In addition to the AquaDunk, the ship will get a second water enhancement in the form of the AquaLab. In the AquaLab water playground on the Disney Magic, families can frolic among pop jets, geysers and bubblers. Interactive games keep the kids moving, while the Twist n’ Spout water slide gets them delightfully drenched.
The white sand beaches and azure waters of Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, take center stage in the early half of 2014 voyages for Disney Cruise Line. With all four Disney ships sailing from Florida ports, not only will guests have more options to visit Castaway Cay, but they may combine their cruise with a visit to Walt Disney World Resort and experience the expanded Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom.
In the early part of 2014, the Disney Magic will return to Port Canaveral, Florida joining the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, while the Disney Wonder will homeport in Miami. During this time, guests will have more opportunities than ever to enjoy a Disney cruise that visits Disney’s private island in the Bahamas reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests, Castaway Cay.
