Best Disney Cruise Staterooms

AOL PICK from our Editors
Disney has always scored big points for its staterooms, which are approximately 25 percent larger than the industry standard and have the standout family-friendly feature of 1.5 baths. One compartment has a toilet and sink while the other has a full bathtub/shower (a bathtub itself is a luxury on most cruise ships) and sink. The decor on all four ships is nautical, with fun elements including a leather steamer trunk turned into shelf space and original artwork. Cabin niceties include a flatscreen TV, mini-fridge and Frette 100 percent Egyptian cotton bath towels and 300-thread-count linens. The cabins are also equipped with portable Wave Phones to use for onboard communication. A good number of cabins connect so that larger families can move between two rooms.

Concierge Royal Suite with Verandah

At the top end of the price range, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy have some of the largest suites in the industry, the nearly 1,800-square-foot Walt E. Disney and Roy O. Disney suites. Designed to appeal to adults and kids alike, these lavish spaces overlook the ship’s bow (for forward-facing views) and have a Jacuzzi on the verandah and a large living room space. The kids sleep on Murphy beds, while adults get an opulent master bedroom. The Magic and Wonder also have Royal Suites, still quite spacious at 1,029 square feet.

Magical Portholes

The Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy put a new spin on lower-end inside staterooms (those without a view). Deluxe inside staterooms now come with a virtual view thanks to a video monitor and high-definition cameras around the ship. In your porthole, you see real-time video of the sea that corresponds to the position of your cabin. As a bonus, animated Disney characters pop up on the screen. The inside cabins on all the ships are large enough to sleep three or four.

Big Rooms

Cabins that sleep more than four are a cruise ship rarity, but the Family Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah cabins on Disney ships are specifically designed for families of five. They serve up 304 square feet of space, with a queen-sized bed and three twins (one an upper bunk) in an area that can be curtained off for privacy. On Dream and Fantasy, some of these cabins also include the cool feature of a round tub with a built-in seat and rain shower.
