Adult-exclusive areas on Disney Wish are quite different from all the other ships in that instead of an adult area where most nightclubs and lounges are located in a “district,” on the Wish, they are found mainly on Deck 3 and 5, right off the public areas. Of course, I prefer them to be in a “district,” but this certainly changes it a bit.
On Deck 3, you’ll find three clubs side-by-side, the most popular being Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge. Inspired by starcruisers like Dryden’s Vos’ ship in Solo: A Star Wars Story, watch the stars drift by every evening—including interactive tasting experiences and signature cocktails inspired by the Star Wars saga. Enjoy galactic concoctions while experiencing hyperspace jumps to several planets in the Star Wars universe through the lounge’s widescreen viewport to the stars. Just off the Grand Hall, Nightingale’s piano bar is inspired by Cinderella’s rendition of “Sing Sweet Nightingale” from the 1950 Disney classic movie. A massive chandelier of pearlescent bubbles and music notes sits above the piano player, who entertains with Disney melodies. The Bayou is one festive spot in the middle of the deck inspired by The Princess and the Frog. Topped with a canopy of magnolia blossoms and twinkling fireflies, here are Louisiana-style cocktails and live music, even specialty coffees and signature beignets.
Deck 5 brings Keg & Compass, the ship’s pub. Designed as an 1800s Norwegian sailor’s map room, it offers live sports, news, and major broadcast events and features a selection of beers, an assortment of liquors, wines, and cocktails. The food menu is also a hit, mainly the delicious fish & chips.
High up on Deck 13 is Quiet Cove, a relaxing, adults-only refuge featuring an infinity pool, bar, and poolside lounge. Separated from the bustle of family activities, this adults-only escape spans an entire section of the ship’s upper decks. This area’s Cove Cafe is a favorite place to relax, with specialty coffees, wine, and cocktails. Unfortunately, it is smaller than its counterparts on the other Disney ships.
On Deck 12 is my favorite, The Rose, located at the entrance to the two adult-exclusive restaurants, Palo Steakhouse and Enchante. Featuring enchanting cocktails with a Beauty and the Beast theme and high-end wines and liquors along with gourmet small plates, this plush lounge is adorned with burgundy velvet seating and sweeping floor-to-ceiling ocean views.
Palo Steakhouse aboard the Disney Wish has a new twist. Combining sweeping ocean views with authentic Italian dining and a modern steakhouse, and an excellent list of European wines and craft beers, it is a must-do for any Disney Cruise vacation. Thank goodness the Palo chocolate souffle remains along with its signature vanilla bean and chocolate sauces.
Talk about luxury, Enchanté is the most gorgeous and sophisticated restaurant across the fleet. Offering an incredible menu crafted by three Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement, you’ll swoon over the ocean views, soft blue hues and metallic decor, and the remarkable chandelier at its center. As for the French-inspired menu, it features seasonal ingredients sourced from around the world, each as fine as any 5-star restaurant you’ll find on land. This is a special treat you won’t want to miss!
Senses Spa is the pinnacle of adult-only experiences, and here onboard the Wish, it’s better than ever. For the first time aboard a Disney ship is a dedicated outdoor relaxation space, an open-air oasis where guests can unwind in whirlpool spas and rest on plush lounge chairs. At an additional charge, Rainforest Room offers heated ergonomic loungers, sensory spa showers, sauna, steam, dry chambers, and even an ice lounge! So plan on spending more time after or before your Senses Spa treatments which include a variety of massage, facial, and acupuncture therapies. Or consider the lavish spa villas with a private heated whirlpool, relaxation double lounger, private shower, and two treatment tables.

Inspired by Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Enchanté is an adult-exclusive restaurant serving French-inspired cuisine in a modern, glamorous setting. Like Palo, the food comes with fabulous ocean views and a choice of prix fixe or a la carte.
The elevated, gourmet menu uses superior seasonal ingredients and is an exceptional culinary experience. Selections are specially crafted by 3 Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement—of L’Assiette Champenoise, near Reims, France—who also created the menus for the celebrated Remy fine-dining restaurant on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
A Champagne Brunch and Just Desserts, featuring a 5-course dessert menu are two additional options here at Enchanté.
Inspired by Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast, this adult-exclusive restaurant mixes Italian fare and modern steakhouse dining. My favorite of the two adult dining choices, it’s a must-try while onboard. Delicious Italian food and steaks accompanied by sweeping ocean views, it’s a win-win. Choose from a prix-fixe menu or a la carte dining.
In addition to dinner, Palo Steakhouse also offers a very popular brunch menu.
