Tiana heads New Orleans-themed new lounge plus more re-imagined spaces aboard Disney Wonder
The Disney Cruise Line is looking forward to some magical enhancements to freshen up the offerings of the Disney Wonder ship. Additions include a New Orleans-themed lounge that will transport guests deeper into the heart of the city’s iconic French Quarter (to complement the existing Tiana’s Palace Restaurant), a reimagined cafe for adults, and a whole new space for teens.
Below are details about each of the new enhancements.
French Quarter Lounge
The French Quarter Lounge will be a perfect companion to Tiana’s Place Restaurant on the Disney Wonder, both inspired by the Disney animated feature THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. The jazzy atmosphere of the French Quarter Lounge will evoke an airy outdoor space in New Orleans, surrounded by touches of iconic architecture such as wrought-iron balconies, classic brick walls and shutter-framed windows. Decorative details including a life-size trolley car and nods to the film, with signs and icons on the walls, add to the ambiance of the space.
Days and nights get a touch of bayou hospitality at the French Quarter Lounge, where guests will enjoy live music on the gazebo stage and sip specialty drinks at an updated whimsical bar. The French Quarter Lounge will be a natural precursor to dinner at Tiana’s Place Restaurant or the perfect destination for entertainment and libations. The story will continue in the lounge all day long with New Orleans-themed family activities, trivia and character encounters. There may even be a glimpse of Princess Tiana herself as she stops by to welcome guests.
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.
A new coffee bar and updated virtual reality technology add to the list of activities for teens to enjoy in this exclusive club.
Cove Café redesign will 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. The newly redesigned Cove Café will be the perfect place to sip specialty coffee or tea throughout the day or partake in wine, cocktails and light bites during the evening. Adult beverage tastings will be available at select times for an additional fee.
Signals Bar is also undergoing a transformation with a similar look.
