I am 37 with no kids and I am taking my first cruise ever and of course it is with Disney! And I am also taking my dad who is 70 years old and it is his first cruise too.

I'm 49 and DH is 53. Our first DCL cruise was in 2000 when we were late 30's. No children then or now and we just completed our 8th cruise. Not sure when the next one is; we may go to DL and Aulani next. Then another cruise.

[QUOTE=Danielletx;48102937]Strange question while I have y'alls attention.

Can I take my own reusable water bottle? I know they have their own cups they sell (which I will plan on getting!) but I would prefer to have one bottle specifically for water. QUOTE]

I go up on deck to fill my water bottle with ice then take back to the stateroom. Then you can just fill up from the tap in the bathroom - it's from the same filtered source as what is on deck but just never gets cold enough. It's heavenly when you've come in from a really hot excursion, fill up the bottle with ice and then just put it on your neck for a few minutes before drinking that cold, cold water. You just need to make sure it has a wide neck to get the ice in.

We always bring a water bottle for each of us so that we can take them down to the gym, even though they have a water fountain there. Sometimes we also take them on excursions although when you use Disney excursions they often provide water. Fill it with ice before both (gym & excursions).

As you walk through the boat, do you feel it moving? Or only when standing still?

Also, I bought a copy of the Passporter book. It ended up being (the 8th edition) a copy that didn't have any info on Glaveston cruises. Anyone need a trade?! Hahaha!
Same servers in the main dining room for dinner, last morning breakfast, and character breakfast if applicable. As far as movement, depending on sea conditions, you might not feel any or only slight movement. Or you could be walking down the halls having a hard time not running into the walls, lol. Or sitting at your table and watch your beverages slosh around. We've "only" been on 4 cruises (35 nights total) and have had mostly calm seas with little or no movement felt. Our worst movement was on the Fantasy in March when the stabilizers were supposedly nt working correctly. A couple nights after dinner I could barely walk upstairs or down the hall. And that was not due to alcohol. Except one night when I got a bit lit at th captain's party :-)

My mom's 78 and can't wait for her next DCL cruise!! (and that's not as old as it would have sounded 15 years ago!!)

Here is some simple yes/no questions to determine if "you are to old to go on an adults only DCL cruise"
1. Do you like being greeted with a smile and respect?
2. Do you prefer to do your own cooking and cleaning?
3. Does Mickey Mouse and Co. make you smile?
4. Do you like spending some time "alone"?
5. Do you like participating in selected group events/activities?
6. Like going places without having to pack and unpack frequently?
7. Do you like beautiful and yet elegant surroundings?
8. Would you like to try "new foods" without concern for how much it costs? And if you don't like it, can get your favorite standard fare (for no extra charge)?
9. Do you think having a massage at sea sounds heavenly?
10. Enjoy entertainment for all ages without having to worry about F-bombs being dropped? (or any other swearing for that matter)
11. Get up early and have breakfast? Or Late and have breakfast?
12. Going to dinner and having your favorite drink there for you as soon as you take your seat?
13. Do you like your nighttime / Sleepy chocolate?
14. Do you like see what Towel Animal appears in your room before bedtime?
15. Do you like "Disney" music? And other music too?
16. Do you enjoy an occasional "adult" beverage, at a reasonable price? Not a "drinker" but some of those beverages sound really tasty, then for even less money you can try them out and enjoy some.

If you answered NO to number 2, and YES to most of the rest of these questions, a Disney Cruise should be in your future!

As long as you skip the summer months & school holidays or a kids sail free promo you should be fine. Plenty of adult only areas & activities.
I have 2 upcoming norwegian cruises that I wish were Disney. As a currently sinvle 43 yr old I just couldnt justify the supplement so choose to sail the Breakaway & Epic in studios. I'm sure I'll have a good time but am downgrading expectations because I have only sailed on DCL.

Does anyone have any persuading statements I can throw her way? I have been dreaming of a Disney cruise for a while. I even had a dream I was shot and was able to go on the cruise as my last wish!

Thank you for your help!!
Before my first Disney Cruise in September 2010 I had some concerns about being a single 47 year old adult male on a Disney Cruise which I believed only catered primarily towards kids and families but I was wrong. Yes they are children aboard the ship but the adults have private areas where the kids are prohibited and stay away for the most part. If you don't mind being around children because they will be plenty of them and love Disney I'm sure you and your mother will have a great time. I had such a great time that I have been on six Disney Cruises since my first in 2010 and I have reservations for three more.

I've often felt a good bit of motion while walking through the ship.


But we really, really like martini tastings.

OP...I love reading trip reports. This report is a great example for you and your mother to read. It's all about a mother/daughter cruise. You can see for yourself through the many photos and the detailed description all the fun these two women had!

OMG! We went on our first cruise ever in Dec. out of Galveston. I am 45 and DH is 53 we had the best time ever. Our 13 year old daughter cruised with us but we hardly saw her she was always with her buddies from The Edge. Disney does it up right. The Tequila tasting is not to be missed if you are drinkers. Yummy! The adult only areas and entertainment were lots of fun. My sister and I are cruising just the two of us this December on the Wonder cannot wait! If you are drinkers you can take your own alcohol on board. There were a ton of Adult only travelers because kids were in school at that time. People really participate in the Pirate night more people were dressed up than were not. This time I will dress up. Oh and the pictures are really good. Make sure you take advantage of all the photo ops. Happy Sailing!
