Senses Spa and Salon on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy

Luxury awaits when you visit Senses Spa and Salon aboard the Disney Dream or the Disney Fantasy. The spa is located in the forward section of decks eleven and twelve. Your senses will be awakened as you experience many different treatments suited to your needs. Disney Cruise Line has even thought of pleasing couples in a spa setting by offering luxurious Spa Villas...more about that later. They even offer teeth whitening in the Smile Spa, a spa for teens at Chill Spa and even a barber shop for men.

Although there are opportunities to book treatments on board the ship, it's best to book ahead of time through, just log into your reservation when your booking window opens up and head over to the Planning Center. For Platinum Castaway Club members the booking window is 120 days prior to sailing, for Gold Castaway Club members the booking window is 105 days prior to sailing and for Silver Castaway Club members the booking window is 90 days prior to sailing. Salon treatments have to be booked on board after 1:00 p.m. on day one of sailing. It's best to do so on the first day to avoid disappointment.

Always check the ships Personal Navigator for specials on Spa Treatments when the ship is docked or near the end of the cruise, there are usually some very enticing deals.  Please note that salon services must be booked while on the ship anytime after 1:00 p.m. on the first day of your cruise.

Senses Spa and Salon offers many types of salon services such as hair cuts, blow outs, styling, manicures and pedicures as well as offering men a traditional barber shop for their needs.

The spa offers many professional treatments such as facials, body wraps, massages and aromatherapy. I will outline the layout of the spa later on in this post.

Senses also offers private pampering in the Luxurious Villas which boast private villas containing private suites, verandahs, whirlpools, outdoor showers, and even a canopy bed in open air. I don't think I would ever leave having experienced this pampering for an afternoon.

An industry first, once again with Disney Cruise Line is the spa offered to teens. It's called the Chill Spa, appropriately named in my humble opinion. Located in Senses Spa and Salon, the Chill Spa offers teens manicures, massages and facials. They'll come out all relaxed and 'chilled'. That's a very good thing.

It's no wonder the spa takes up two levels, it offers so many luxurious areas and is so expansive you'll feel as if you're occupying the entire ship. Firstly, the decor is soothing and instantly relaxes you with its colours of blue, green and brown accented with lavish wood. It has seventeen treatment rooms, two Luxury Villas, the beautiful Rainforest Room with three different areas, one being the steam bath called the Hamam, the steam room called the Caldarium and the dry sauna called the Laconium. In addition, there is the Smile Spa for teeth whitening, showers, locker areas, private change rooms.

With the exception of the Chill Spa for teens, one has to be eighteen years of age and older to enjoy the benefits and pampering of the Senses Spa and Salon.

Beverage Stations Aboard the Disney Cruise Line Ships

One of the many aspects of sailing with Disney Cruise Line that you do not have to worry about, is your beverages. You don't need to buy a soda or water package or wear a wrist band. Most beverages aboard Disney Cruise Line are complimentary.

Walt Disney Studios Tour, Burbank, California.

Never in a million years did I ever imagine walking the backlot streets of the Walt Disney Studio in Burbank. Yet, there we were over Christmas vacation in December 2011. It was all real, I couldn't stop pinching myself, I was awestruck! I could not believe my eyes or the ground that I walked upon. Just the mere thought of being where Walt Disney was, was enough for me. Looking at the items he touched or dealt with was mind blowing. I was even able to hold.....are you ready for this? Yes, hold a REAL Oscar. Not only a real Oscar, but Walt Disney's Oscar for his Nature Documentary. My whole body tingled, I was shaking with excitement and boy, oh boy did I make sure my hands were clean. I don't know how many times I asked if I should wear gloves. The ever so friendly Cast Member, an Archivist, smiled and said it was okay, bare hands were fine. I was completely BLOWN away! The whole experience began with us pulling up to the security guard booth at Walt Disney Studios in Burban…
