|Disney Cruise Line Introduces New Programming For Kids |
Disney Cruise Line has introduced an all-new approach to age-specific programming for younger cruisers. Already offering the most extensive children's programming at sea, Disney Cruise Line has added new themed programming and activities for children called "D Sea U". The programming was designed with four different age groups in mind.
Children are encouraged to build on their interest and experience in a variety of subjects:
Science & Exploration
Arts & Crafts
Sports & Fitness
Drama & Music
Mystery & Detective
Fun & Games
On the final day of the cruise, children participate in a show called "Celebrate the Journey" where they receive a mortar board Mickey hat, as well as a "D Sea U" t-shirt.
Disney Wonder Gets a Facelift
The Disney Wonder® is adding several new onboard venues to accommodate the varied interests of teen and adult guests while the ship is in dry dock through Oct. 17. One of the most significant changes is Aloft, which replaces the ESPN Skybox and becomes the perfect escape for teens to socialize and relax in the forward funnel of the ship, high atop Deck 11. The new teen club appeals to both young and older teens with separate spaces and activities for each age group.
For adults, Cove Café will offer an indoor alternative adjacent to the Quiet Cove pool and replaces the former teen coffee shop, Common Grounds. Inside, adults can relax with a popular magazine, access their e-mail, socialize with other guests or enjoy gourmet coffees, specialty drinks and light fare, throughout the day or night.
Replacing the former Off Beat venue is Diversions, a new traditional-style pub located in the ship's nighttime entertainment district. Guests join together here to cheer for their favorite sports teams, participate in trivia-based game shows or sing-along to karaoke.
