The Princess and the Frog is set to bring new life to the Disney Wonder.
This fall, the Disney Cruise Line ship will add a New Orleans-themed lounge which will transport guests to the city’s iconic French Quarter. It will feature live music and themed activities for all ages. Decorative details will include a life-size trolley car and nods to the film in the form of signs and facades on the walls add to the ambiance of the space.
Details from Disney:
At the French Quarter Lounge, guests will get a touch of bayou hospitality as they enjoy live music on the gazebo stage and sip specialty drinks at an updated whimsical bar. This natural precursor to dinner at Tiana’s Place Restaurant is the perfect destination for entertainment and libations before or after dinner, while the space will come alive throughout the day with New Orleans-themed family activities, trivia and character encounters.
Also debuting on the Disney Wonder will be a sleek new space for teens: Vibe.
Vibe, a club reserved for teens ages 14-17, will transform into a contemporary place to hang out with friends while at sea. The space will be given a timeless feel with an open, bright redesign, a light color palette and industrial metal work, while a new coffee bar and updated virtual reality technology add to the list of activities for teens to enjoy during their family vacation.
Lastly, adults will have their own place to hang out at the Cove Café.
It will be designed to transform the look and feel of the café into a local coffee shop, complete with warm, comfortable and trendy décor. Ample seating and a relaxed atmosphere will invite guests to indulge themselves in this peaceful retreat, which is the perfect place to sip specialty coffee or tea throughout the day or partake in wine, cocktails and light bites during the evening.
Just steps away, Signals Bar is also undergoing a transformation with a similar look.
The new enhancements debut on the Disney Wonder’s four-night sailing from Vancouver to San Diego on Sept. 30, 2019.
