You have so much choice when you travel with Disney Cruise Line. As you would expect with most cruise lines, you can choose to sail in an interior cabins (with the Disney magic portholes, that give you virtual views to the outside world and Disney characters and surprises along the way), oceanview, and of course various balcony cabins.
As I’ve said before, the attention to detail on this ship is a whole other level. One cute thing you will notice is that every deck has a different Disney princess theme. So all the artwork and subtle theming will evoke that story.
Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah
On this trip, we stayed in a deluxe balcony cabin on deck 10 (technically an Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah). I have to say I was thoroughly impressed by this space. Deck 10 is themed around The Little Mermaid, so you will find a nautical theme including the carpets, door decals, lighting and of course in the stateroom with Ariel’s castle adorning the headboard and other art inspired by The Little Mermaid – Honestly so much fun, but also a good way to orientate yourself.
Key features include:
- A premium mattress (it was so comfy!)
- High thread count linens with premium bath towels
- Large flatscreen LED TV
- A number of mirrors
- Large closet
- Split bathroom, with small bath, shower and W/C
- Large balcony
- Separate living area with large sofa bed, pull down bed, vanity area and further tub chair sitting area.
- Loads of charging and USB sockets around the cabin, including a first (for me) of both USB A and C sockets.
What really impressed me was the sheer amount of space you get in the room, compared to a similar level balcony cabin on other cruise lines. A particular highlight was the extra space in the cabin given over for the tub chair and seating. I have to say it’s one of the best cabins I’ve stayed in ever.
In addition to this, Disney Wish has an on board laundry on deck 8 for guests to use. It’s by far the biggest guest laundry I’ve seen on any ship with all the amenities you can think of. Even more interesting is that the machines will notify you on the on board app when you’re laundry is done so you needn’t wait around for it.
Turning to the sweet suite concierge offering on board, you have a whole range of options including some of the most lavish and incredible spaces at sea. The two that stand out most are the Aurora Suite and the Wish Tower Suite
The Aurora Suite
The Aurora suite is situated right at the front of the ship and affords views over the bow. It is truly an incredible space that is inspired by Aurora’s Castle in Sleeping Beauty, featuring a contemporary yet whimsical design with blue and gold hues and accents.
This split level suite features stunning spiral staircase with two main bedrooms (with walk in wardrobes) and three full bathrooms. Of this, one of the bathrooms feature a freestanding bathtub and a rain shower, with privacy glass that turns on with the touch of a button. The suite also features a large living area, dining space and pantry space/wet bar. Outside you’ll find seating, a dining space and a whirlpool tub. Overall, the suite can sleep 6-guests
Wish Tower Suite
At 1966 sq. ft., the Wish Tower Suite is not only one of the biggest suites at sea, it is perhaps the most unique. And you’ve guessed it, this is because the suite is situated within the front funnel of Disney Wish.
This is honestly such a unique space to spend time in. It’s a highly contemporary space, though is still subtly themed to the backdrop of Moana, with custom Polynesian artwork and sculptures.
This space consists of two floors, with two main bedrooms, a children’s room, four bathrooms and a W/C, a dining room, living area, wet bar and a library.
This space can cost $30,000 upwards for a cruise, though you’ll have to join the queue as it is fully booked for the next year!
