Wondering what to do on a Cruise when its Night Time, any evening activities? READ to find out.
Hey guys, today I wanted to talk about a Disney Cruise in the evening, you know after dinner, but before bed 😉 So you had your dinner, you saw the evening entertainment show…now what? Drinking at the bar, evening cocktails in a lounge with soft LIVE music, Adult Trivia or Game Shows…or my NEW favorite (Silent DJ Party).
For those with kids, young kids…you might just be heading to bed, having a cocktail on your balcony while the kids sleep or you might be passed out from all the sun, fun and entertainment during the day. BUT for those with older kids or those cruising without kids…there is a whole mess of fun in the evening that I only recently got to enjoy as I left the kiddies at home. OR you could cruise with another family and have ladies night and guys night, swapping off with each other.
Games and Trivia:
So for those who can manage it…there is usually a game or two going on in the evening. Think 80’s trivia or a Match Your Mate game. Perhaps Dream Quest is more your speed? The “Quest” game is like a scavenger hunt using items currently ON the people in the Game Room – like a key or a coin, etc. This can be quite funny, but depending on the items they ask for…a little crazy for some.
This is what it sounds like…the Crew Staff DJ will often go from bar, to lounge to pub and play music. The Ship’s LIVE band will do the same. Think soft singing, gentle music and often times an impressive instrument solo. Its a peaceful way to end the evening with a glass of wine and soft chatting with your partner. On the Dream we also heard a wonderful pianist.
Silent DJ Party:
This FUN event was amazingly entertaining, for both the participants and the viewers. It involves participants wearing headphones and listening to music while dancing. ONLY they can hear what is playing, but YOU, as the viewer can hear them “lip sing” and watch them dance. Partners can be listening to 2 different songs, while singing (usually out loud) and trying to also dance with each other. One could be Latin Dance tunes and the other could be Country. Its hysterical to watch and fun to participate in. Many times I thought to myself…I want what he is having as some cruisers were really having a good time. Don’t miss this activity. I noticed many young adults doing this as well.
And for those who want something a little less dance party and perhaps more (the kids are awake)…there are late night movies playing as well. Usually one movie is playing in the theater and one is playing on the pool deck (grab a sweater). Both are a great way to end the night if the kids aren’t tired and you still want some Disney fun.
Enjoy the VIEW:
My personal way to end the night is to WALK the top decks of the ship. Feel the soft breeze of the night on your face, enjoy a cocktail and stroll. Watch the waves as they crash against the ship under the moon light. Witness the calm of the ship in its nighttime spender. The lights of the pool area are beautiful in the dark night. So peaceful and elegant. I could sit and enjoy that for hours.
So as most people think about what they can do during the day and rushing to this activity to the next…sometimes its nice to enjoy the night with some soft music, a Disney Movie or a the night sky glowing on the ship. Either way, its just the beginning of another beautiful day…so enjoy the night and plan for the next day ahead!
