One of the most enjoyable activities on board a Disney Cruise for the adults is the beverage tastings.
Disney Cruise Line has released details of the beverage tasting seminars that are to be offered on board the Maiden Voyage of the Disney Wish.
Guests are now able to go online and book these new beverage tastings in their Disney Planner.
All of the tastings are an hour long and will be limited in availabllity. All participants have to be at least 21 years old.
The first thing of note is that the prices of these beverage tastings appear to be significantly higher than on the other Disney ships. The usual prices range from $20 to $40 per adult, however, as you will see, the prices here are quite an increase on that.
Whether or not these prices will be introduced across all the Disney Cruise Line ships remains to be seen.
Here are the beverage tastings for the Disney Wish Maiden voyage.

Disney Wish The Rose Bar
The bar which will be in the adult dining space is themed for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
The Rose Bar will probably be much like the concept of The Meridian Bar on the Disney Dream and Fantasy.
A place to go prior to dining in the adult-only restaurants, or indeed to enjoy even when you aren’t dining there.
More About the Disney Wish
