Disney Cruising

The Disney Cruise Line does cater to families.  There are lots of activities and excursions during each cruise families can enjoy together.  Disney knew they would also have to cater to adults.  Not only adult singles and couples but parents whose children would be in the many kinds of kids only entertainment and programs.  Parents know their kids will be safe and take the time to relax.

The Adult area on Decks 11 & 12 (see above) is a place where adults can relax, socialize, sun bathe, swim, listen to musical entertainment and enjoy an adult beverage from one of four bars within a minute walk from where this photo was taken.

Being a Disney cruise, characters are a big part of the entertainment.  In shows under the Funnelvision, in designated Meet and Greet areas on the ship and Castaway Cay, in live theater productions and sometimes just wandering the ship or a beach.  Both kids and adults love to see and interact with them.

All photos in the collage where taken with the versatile Nikon 28-300mm AF-S VR Zoom lens.

I had a lot of fun using the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Zoom lens.  I found the wide angle lens a great tool to capture the interior and exterior areas of the Disney Dream cruise ship.

    A Disney cruise looks fab, but I think the next time I hit the seas, I will look for a less family-oriented cruise! 😉 I’ve loved my visits to Disney World, but I’m in a different state of mind on a cruise vacation. I love the perspectives of your photos. That lens seems extremely versatile. Maybe I should look for something similar for Canon.


    • I believe any quality cruise line would be great fun. Cruising is very popular with lots of itineraries to choose from. We were very happy as an adult couple with our experience on a ship full of families.

      Canon has an 18-200mm for the APS sensor sized cameras. Sigma and Tamron have 18-250mm lenses for Canon. All are image stabilized (IS).
