Disney Cruise Line in a Jiffy: What is Vibe?

Share This!

Vibe is Disney Cruise Line’s name for it’s teen club – available for guests ages 14-17. Hours vary daily (check the Personal Navigator app for the specifics during your trip), but Vibe hours tend to start mid-morning and may run as late as 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. There will be counselors on site at all times, though they might be more hands off here than at the clubs for younger children.

Vibe will have activities such as video games, board games, movies, books, music, and art activities available at all times. Additionally, there will be organized activities schedule throughout the day. Again, check the Navigator app for specifics during your trip, but you can expect to find things like smoothie-making sessions, dance parties, movie-making lessons, scavenger hunts, or interactive puzzles. Vibe counselors may also accompany teens on “field trips” to other parts of the ship. For example, they might lead a group trip to an animation lesson or to a karaoke session. Not surprisingly, there will be more options on longer sailings and larger ships.

While the activities are similar across the ships, the decor is different, with the Wish (the newest ship) being more modern and the Magic and Wonder (the older ships) being more rustic. On the Dream and the Fantasy only, there is an outdoor area adjacent to Vibe with its own pools and hot tubs only for teen use.

Disney Cruise Line has announced that during a fall 2024 drydock refurbishment, Edge (the tween club for ages 11-14) on the Dream will be moving to Deck 5 from its current location in a tower above the pool deck (that space is being turned into a concierge room). While we don’t know all the details, it appears that Edge and Vibe will splitting Vibe’s space, including the outdoor pool deck. No word yet on weather the same change will take place on the Fantasy, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s on DCL’s agenda for the next Fantasy drydock.
