    To me, a family vacation is about spending time together. My kids aren't interested in separating from us for kids clubs, and we'd rather hang out with them too. Is there much for families to do together? I mostly hear about separate activities.

    Ahoy, Megan!
    The beauty of a Disney Cruise is the ability to personalize the vacation to meet the needs of your family. Your Personal Navigator (the daily cruise newsletter) and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App (free for download for Apple or Android devices) will be full of events and activities that your family can enjoy together including the youth spaces. Many times my husband and I will take advantage of the "Open House" hours offered and enjoy the spaces with our kids. The Oceaneer Club, Oceaneer Lab, Edge and Vibe all have time set aside each day for anyone who wants to come in and experience these areas. These times will be listed in your Personal Navigator. The section of your Personal Navigator you'll want to pay attention to the most is "Fun For All Ages." The fabulous entertainment staff will offer activities like family movie time, Disney Animation sessions, Bingo, towel folding classes, game shows, dance parties, deck parties, karaoke, crafts, Broadway-style shows, character appearances and trivia to give you a better idea. If you sail on the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy, the Midship Detective Agency is a must-do for your crew! This interactive game is perfect for Guests of all ages to enjoy! And I can't forget to mention splashtacular fun! One of my family's favorite times to swim is late afternoon before we get ready for dinner! Another area to experience is Goofy's Sports Deck for basketball, ping-pong or foosball. On the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, you'll also find Goofy Golf!
    As you can see, your Disney Cruise vacation can be full of family fun, Megan! I'm excited for you to cast off to make some unforgettable memories at sea with Captain Mickey! If you have any further questions, please let us know!
