Wondering what Disney cruises offer for teens? Onboard the Disney Cruise Line ships, you can find teen and tween hangouts exclusive for certain ages. We’re sharing everything you need to know.
The Disney Cruise Line ships are known for bringing a bit of Disney magic to the high seas. Each of the five Disney Cruise Line ships (with the sixth, the Disney Treasure, coming in 2024) features a variety of dining, entertainment, and Disney magic you’ve come to expect at the parks. And the family-friendly vessels also have spots that are exclusive for guests that aren’t kids, but aren’t quite adults either! There are both tween and teen hangouts on the Disney Cruise Line ships.
Disney Cruise Line Teen and Tween Hangouts
You’ll find teen and tween hangouts onboard all of the Disney Cruise Line ships. Edge is a tween club intended for ages 11 to 14, while Vibe is a teen club for 14 to 17-year-olds. And the Disney Wish introduced an exclusive third spot, with the tween-exclusive The Hideaway.
Edge is a secluded area on all five Disney Cruise Line ships specifically for tweens. The perfect spot to make new friends all while playing games, watching movies, and participating in other activities. This tween-exclusive area is reserved for guests between the ages of 11 and 14. Within their own special hangout, they can have some time away from their family and connect with other tweens from around the world! Tweens will absolutely love the offerings in Edge, as high-tech entertainment including flat-screen TVs, computers, and video games are all available! Daily guided activities will ensure that each day, tweens’ visits will be unique and exciting.
Filled with bright, colorful furniture, on the Disney Wish, this teen hangout is inspired by a chic New York City loft with a sunny overhead skylight effect. Graphic art is displayed throughout which will make for the perfect Instagram-worthy photos alongside the new friends made. On the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, the hangout is given a basement-inspired feel and is designed to look like an old boiler room. And on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, the spot features an illuminated dance floor, karaoke machines, and more.
For those voyagers who are slightly older, Vibe is the place to be. Reserved for those aged between 14 and 17, guests can meet new friends, play games, watch movies, and participate in fun activities created specifically for this age group. On the Disney WIsh, Vibe is inspired by a Parisian artists’ loft, featuring colorful graffiti, pop art murals, and other architectural elements. Plus, the Disney-inspired travel posters scattered throughout make for the perfect touch.
On the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, the hangout is located in the red Forward Funnel of the ship, an open-plan lounge with video games, flat-screen TVs, and board games. On the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, Vibe is part nightclub and part sundeck, located on an outdoor deck space. Here, Vibe is intended to feel like a hip urban night spot with a secret entrance and a high-tech media room.
The Disney Wish is the only Disney Cruise Line ship that offers a third tween-exclusive spot: The Hideaway! This spot is the first of its kind, designed specifically for the fifth ship in the fleet. The new hip hangout is reserved for kids and young adults, allowing them to meet new friends as they dance the night away. The posh setting will help tweens feel as if they are adults hanging out at a nightclub. Sing your favorite song on the karaoke machine or put her dance moves to the test as you can complete in dance competitions.
Per Disney Parks Blog, “No matter where they choose to be, tweens and teens are in for a whole “llama” fun during customized, counselor-led programming designed to engage their unique interests, such as a hilarious new competition themed to the fan-favorite Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film, ‘The Emperor’s New Groove’.”
