Whether you’re traveling without kids or taking advantage of Disney Cruise Line’s amazing youth clubs to enjoy a parent’s night out, here’s a look at how you and your Valentine can dine, dance, relax and celebrate the special occasion all day long!

1. Grab a sweet treat.

After dinner – or let’s be honest, before dinner – why not grab dessert? While sailing on the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy, stop by Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats or Sweet on You for a tasty treat to share! The delectable milkshakes and ice cream sundaes crafted by our culinary team are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth. And let’s not forget all the great photo opportunities in these bright and colorful dessert shops that one could truly call … yes, I’m going here … eye candy!

2. Escape to a sanctuary for the senses.

When you walk into our Senses Spa & Salon, you can’t help but immediately relax. Here, you and your loved one can unwind during a massage, refresh with a facial or be pampered with a wide array of treatments. 

3. Experience a tropical island paradise.

Did you know that Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, is the perfect place to spend quiet time together, whether relaxing on the soft, white-sand beach of Serenity Bay or enjoying an open-air cabana massage? You could call it a couple’s paradise away from paradise!

4. Share in the rich flavors of Italy and France.

Whether it’s classic Italian flavors you’re after, or fine French fare you’re fancying, our adult-exclusive dining options are perfect for an extra special date night. At Palo, savor classic Northern Italian dishes amid region-inspired décor and sweeping ocean views. While in Remy, experience luxurious dining with a multi-course French menu while getting swept up in a sophisticated atmosphere inspired by the “city of lights!”

5. Dance the night away.

At night, bask together in the warm ocean breeze on the outer decks, or step into one of our uniquely themed nightclubs to sing and dance to your heart’s content.

6. Enjoy the perfect after-dinner drink.
