Disney Wish will provide a variety of new venues for adults, including the fleet’s first outdoor spa retreat, salon and barbershop experiences, and a collection of bars and lounges.
The new venues join a previously announced Star Wars-themed lounge and fine dining experiences inspired by Beauty and the Beast.
“With the Disney Wish, we wanted to design an experience that allows our grown-up guests to relax, recharge and reconnect in unique ways that only Disney Cruise Line can create,” said Laura Cabo, Portfolio Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering.
“We added more variety and made them more accessible than ever before,” she added. “This ship has truly been designed with adults’ vacation needs in mind, and I know our guests are going to return home feeling refreshed after their Disney Wish vacation.”
The ship will feature 12 venues for adults, 9 of which are bars, restaurants and lounges, while the other three are the spa, salon and barbershop.
Senses Spa will feature a dedicated outdoor relaxation space with whirlpool spas, plush loungers and yoga sessions, it will be an extension to Disney Cruise Line’s Rainforest experience, which has been reimagined for the Disney Wish.
The Rainforest will introduce the fleet’s first ice lounge, allowing guests to combine thermal therapies and willinclude heated ergonomic loungers, sensory spa showers and sauna, steam and dry chambers.
Senses Spa will also feature private treatment rooms and spa villas for couples and the adjacent Senses Fitness will offer exercise and wellness facilities, including a main room with exercise equipment, a dedicated cycle studio and an aerobics room.
The Salon and Barbery will be the fleet’s first standalone venues for hairstyling and beauty services, designed with inspiration from classic Walt Disney Animation Studios films.
Untangled Salon is inspired by Disney’s animated princess Rapunzel, and will be adorned in shades of purple and gold, decorated with floating lantern light fixtures and outfitted with privacy screens depicting Rapunzel’s own paintings.
In addition to haircuts and styling, Untangled Salon will offer manicures, pedicures, teeth whitening and skin treatments.
Hook’s Barbery will be a unique twist on a traditional European men’s salon, offering cuts, shaves, and nail and skin care. It’s inspired by another Disney character, Captain Hook: with an inlaid wooden map of Never Land, a hidden pocket watch and a hook, among others.
Most interesting of all, Hook’s Barbery will also feature a hidden bar serving bourbons, vintage whisky and port, aged rum and premium spirits.
Disney Wish will also offer a collection of adults-only bars and lounges spread out among the ship’s other family-friendly common areas.
Keg & Compass is a pub that celebrates the adventure and romance of the sea, designed in the style of a late 1800s Norwegian sailor’s map room.
Guests will be able to watch live sports, news and major broadcast events while sampling a specialized selection of beers, including three custom craft brews available exclusively aboard the Disney Wish, along with an assortment of liquors, wines and cocktails.
Nightingale’s is a refined piano bar inspired by Cinderella’s lyrical rendition of “Sing Sweet Nightingale” in the 1950 film. It offers fine wines, bubblies and hand-crafted cocktails.
The predominant design feature will be a glittering chandelier above the piano. This lounge will be a thematic extension of the fairytale-inspired Grand Hall from which it stems.
The Bayou is an informal New Orleans-inspired lounge themed to The Princess and the Frog with magnolia blossoms, lily pads and a canopy of twinkling fireflies as decor, as well as a bronze statue of each character and two gazebos inspired by the city’s iconic wrought iron metalwork structures. This venue will offer cocktails, coffees and beignets, as well as live music.
These new adults-only venues aboard Disney Wish join previously announced venues for those 18 years and older, which include a new lounge, a trio of premium culinary experiences and a dedicated pool district on the upper decks.
These include Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, a bar styled as a luxurious yacht-class spaceship that takes guests on a tour of the Star Wars galaxy, the Quiet Cove pool area with an infinity pool, a whirlpool spa, an open-air bar and a poolside cafe.
The ship will also feature three specialty restaurants: Palo Steakhouse, Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement and The Rose.
Palo Steakhouse is an evolution of the Palo restaurant familiar to Disney cruisers. It now combines Italian dining with the classic refinement of a modern steakhouse in a setting inspired by Cogsworth, the majordomo-turned-enchanted-clock from Beauty and the Beast.
Enchanté will feature a gourmet menu crafted by three-Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement in a venue inspired by Beauty and the Beast’s candelabra maitre d’, Lumiere.
Inspired by the fateful flower at the heart of the story, The Rose is a lounge at the entrance of Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté, most suitable for a pre-dinner aperitif or after-dinner cocktail.
Disney Wish will sail its maiden voyage on June 9th, 2022, followed by a season of 3- and 4-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, from Port Canaveral, Florida.
