Great Family Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Oct 11, 2014

This is our 6th Disney Cruise.  My girls are 11 and 14 and still love it and much as they did years ago.  Disney does not compare to any other cruise line.  The employees go above and beyond to make your vacation exceptional!

Vacation of a Lifetime

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Oct 11, 2014

It was so much more than we thought it was going to be.  We can't wait to go cruising with Disney again!  There was something for our teenager, tween, and toddler every day.  I felt very comfortable leaving our boys in the youth programs and they had a blast!

cruise no 1

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jul 19, 2014

Best experience ever. First cruise exceeded all expectations. Cold care was great gave me time to take of me without worrying about the children. They had so much to do that I didn't see them for hours with concern.

It's Magical!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jun 28, 2014

We cruised June 2014.  The ship exceeded all our expectations.  From the moment you arrived at port and the "baggage crew" met you, you knew this was DISNEY!  Our room was AFT deck 9, the ship never moved, it was smooth sailing and all 7 days the weather was perfect. This room was on the expensive side but an inside stateroom or one with a porthole (as long as it's on a higher deck) would have been fine.  We didn't make too much use of the balcony, except for our 1st morning, we enjoyed roomservice for breakfast.  The crew members are there to make sure that you have an unbelievable time.  They are ALL amazing and talented! Disney is all about DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS. You will find yourself taking pictures in the bathrooms, that's how beautiful they are.  All I have to say is you need to see it to believe it! The only negative aspect:  The pools are tiny for the amount of people on board. Elderly people or those with some sort of handicap will not be able to get into the pools, the steps/staircase are vertical and you have to be "physically" capable of going up and down. The only pool that has the broad steps is the one were the water goes below your knees and it's way too crowded.  As a result my mom was not able to enjoy the pools (adult area as well) which was a shame.  Except for the pools, all else was literally perfect.

Disney Cruise line is 'da bomb'

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: May 31, 2014

You cannot go wrong with a Disney Cruise! Everything is top notch. From the cleaniness, friendliness, activities, food, accomodations etc. This was our 2nd one and we will definately be going many more times, with or without kids.

Love Disney!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: May 31, 2014

It is the special touches in customer service that make Disney special.  I have to say we have never cruised with any other line because we are afraid of being disappointed.  Our day in St. Thomas was very hot and humid.  When we returned to the ship they had a cart with cold wet hand towels to cool you off, and they had a station with 3 different kinds of water with fruit in them. Didn't see that at the other ships.  When going to our excursion that morning the lady from the boat told us to be sure and stay with her because we had to walk past another ship (people were milling around everywhere), and in her words, "they just aren't as organized as the Disney people."  Beautiful ship and great staff!

Excellent cruise,!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Feb 01, 2014

Love disney cruise line, best service. The workers are all so personable. They made us feel like we were their only guests. They could of had more characters, the lines to meet them were very long. There is a ton of children on the ship so if you do not have kids you could get annoyed. The food is great, the activities on the shore were very pricey.

Very nice ship. Cabins were small, but plenty of storage. I especially liked under bed for luggage. Balconies were also very small. I didn't like Eastern Caribbean itinerary for children, St. Marteen & St. Thomas, as not many shore excursions foe young children. We did the beach on St. Marteen & Butterfly Garden on St. Thomas. The beaches are nice on St. Thomas but we were there many times. Castaway Cay the children loved, as did we. Lunch was great & the pirate ship play area in the water. Lifeguards & secure area in the water. Plenty of lounge chairs & umbrellas. All activities were cancelled on Castaway Cay due to wind. (Not very windy). We wanted a Cabana but they only have 20 & to get one you have to be a member of Castaway Cay, which is their club for numerous Disney cruises. They charge $549.. 

Back to the Fantasy. The pools were extremely small for a ship of that size. The kids were packed like sardines in the pools. Adult pool was small also. We did not use adult pool for that reason. They had  splash areas for small children. Children in swim diapers are not allowed in the pool. 

I didn't care for the dining. You rotate dining in different restaurants with the same servers. Our servers were good. All the staff was great! Food was good. Cabanas,the buffet restaurant was ok. Always had to search for a table as it was crowded for breakfast & lunch. Nice variety of food. However one day a girl puked right in front of us & we called for help. I feel they should have closed that side of the restaurant immediately. She puked more than once. We are still sick. We got sick on our last morning & our still not symptom free. Norovirus. The other little food court type restaurants were not very good. They had Philly cheesesteaks, not good, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, fries, bagged potato chips & a small bar for condiments for burgers, hot dogs & steak. They had pizza too. Nothing was very good & long lines.

I also didn't like the fact that you had times & locations for Characters, always lines. They should have been walking around the ship & in dining restaurants. Shows were ok. Movies were first run, but you had to pay for popcorn, $3.50.

Pirate night by the pools, which they closed the floor over the pools to fir more people, were completely packed with people. I couldn't stay as I felt like I couldn't breath with so many people. 

My honest opinion not worth all the money Disney charges. We have cruised on Royal Caribbean many times, Holland,(not kid friendly) & Princess. All were good & much less expensive.

The BEST Cruise I have ever been on!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jan 25, 2014

I have been on several cruises in my life, but never have I experienced such an amazing trip than I had during our 7 Night Eastern Caribbean Disney Cruise. 

Even with 13 family members on the cruise, we were able to keep everyone happy. People tend to opt out of Disney cruises because of the price, but I have to say that it was worth every penny! From the shows to the food, everything was absolutely wonderful! 

While other cruise lines might be cheaper, they don't have all of the amenities that Disney has. (i.e., on board LIFEGUARDS, Castaway Cay, amazing shows, delicious food, onboard children's programs, etc...) 

We are already excited about planning our next Disney cruise!

Disney Rises To The Top Once Again

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jan 11, 2014

I've lost track of how many cruises my family has been on, but the last 7 have been all Disney.  They are top of the heap, A #1 Everything just seems to go right on a Disney Cruise.  The magic of Disney transcends well beyond the walls of Cinderella's castle!

Grab the Hidden Mickey Book and challenge your family to see who can spot the most!

Get on the ship as early as possible for the lunch buffet, then tour the ship to see the incredible kids, teens, and adult areas. It's the best time for the whole party to see everything. Do not miss the shows!

Be sure and go on top deck to watch the sun set at least once. Beautiful! Be sure and ask cast member ahead of time which side of deck 12 you should be on for the fireworks. Aqua Duck can block view if on wrong side.
