Dream Week – Adults Only!

On to Day Three of our Disney Dream week! We’ve explored spaces for families and children, so it’s time to see where you can go for some relaxing adult time once you’re dropped the kids off at the Oceaneer’s Club.

Our first stop is the Senses Spa & Salon. There is a large fitness center inside with treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical machines, and weight training equipment. Instructional classes are also offered, or you can hire a personal trainer, for a fee. There are men’s and women’s changing areas, lockers, towels, water, and showers for you to use as well.

Next, we toured the Rainforest room. This was easily my favorite spot aboard the ship. Look at that row of gorgeous heated lounge chairs with individual lights for reading. This area is so relaxing. There are also two open-air jacuzzis, a quiet indoor relaxation room, a steam room, dry sauna, and a steam bath. You can use the Rainforest room for $16 per day, or there is a length-of-cruise option.

Also inside Senses are couples villas, where you can go to enjoy spa treatments together. The salon offers haircut and hair styling services, manicures, pedicures, and more! There is even a barber shop featuring traditional men’s services.

Maybe your idea of relaxation involves a pool and a tropical drink? You’ll want to spend some time at the Quiet Cove Pool. Adult music is played, instead of the upbeat, family-friendly music you’ll hear on the main pool deck. The Cove Bar offers adult refreshments, without having to leave the comfort of the pool area. There are plush lounge chairs where you can sunbathe and relax. Glass-bottomed jacuzzis overlook the ocean. The Cove Cafe is also here, offering coffee, tea, and alcoholic beverages.

In the evening, you can enjoy an adult exclusive dinner at Palo or Remy. You must make reservations to dine at these restaurants, and there is a dress code. Palo has a Venetian theme, offering Northern Italian cuisine for $25 per person. This price does include gratuity, and every table offers a stunning ocean view.

Remy is the place to go for foodies. At $75 per person, Remy offers a true fine dining experience. Plan to be here for 3-4 hours. You will be served several courses of French-inspired food. Remy is small and elegant. It feels very intimate. They even provide a little stool for your handbag! I took a picture. I couldn’t help it. I had never seen such a thing.

The District is the Dream’s adult entertainment area. Inside, are several nightclubs and lounges with distinct themes. The District Lounge offers karaoke. Pink is an elegant lounge, designed to look like the inside of a champagne bottle. Evolution is a dance club whose theme is based on the evolution of a butterfly. 687 is a sports bar where you can enjoy a drink and watch live sporting events. Yes! On a cruise ship! Skyline was my favorite. It feels very swanky and metropolitan. Behind the bar are screens showing a famous city’s skyline – Chicago while we were inside. The skyline changes throughout the evening, so you might also be in New York, Paris, or Hong Kong. Another really neat thing about that skyline? It also transforms from day to night as the day progresses.

From the daytime to the evening, the Disney Dream has adult time covered. I think I could take a Disney cruise without children and still have a wonderful time. It is a common misconception that Disney Cruise Line is only for families. While I do think Disney cruises are fantastic for families, what I saw on this tour showed me that adults can have just as much fun without kids as they can with them. If I had known anything about it, I might have begged for a Disney cruise line honeymoon 10 years ago. I’m super serious. I’m begging him to take me now. 🙂
