Disney Fantasy

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Feb 07, 2015

Overall this was a great trip. The ship was clean, staff very friendly, food excellent. However, take away the Disney "flare" and I would rate as an average cruise. If you have kids I recommend a Disney cruise at least once. My family loved the soda and drink stations. The two wave phones per state room genius, I wish all cruise lines had thisHappy. There was not enough pool/ hot tub space. VERY DISASPPOINTINGAngry: photos were "preset" sizes. The only way to get a photo in the size you wanted was to buy the CD package which started at $150. I only wanted one picture, was not willing to pay for the CD. Seems petty that Disney would try to manipulate their patrons with photo purchases. Enough money is spent on extras (ie: tea w characters, kids boutique, spa, ect). I cruise often and  have never run into this problem before. This put a VERY bad impression in my mind.

The best first cruise I could have hoped for!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jan 31, 2015

This was our first cruise (couple, no kids, 27), and I really don't have anything bad to say. The ship was beautiful for starters. Disney detail at its best. We had a standard inside stateroom and even it was beautiful! I've seen a lot of really ugly inside cabins, but ours was great, and the added bonus of the magical porthole was awesome. The restaurants were all amazing as well. The only minor complaint is that sometimes the food wasn't as hot as it could have been, but I guess that's to be expected when they are serving dinner to hundreds of guests. Our overall dining experience was great still. The adults only deck was wonderful, and there was a lot of great adults only activities. My experience was fantastic, we got a great deal on the cruise, and I wouldn't hesitate to book again. In fact, I will be heading on the Fantasy again as soon as my wallet allows!

Amazing cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jan 31, 2015

It was a perfect cruise with our children and grandchildren. The entertainment especially was great, and wholesome for all ages. I especially enjoyed the spa area. The grandchildren enjoyed the activity club which was truly amazing. I think Disney has spoiled it for us, and we probably continue to stay with them in the future. It is a bit more expensive, but well worth it.

Great cruise if traveling with children

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jan 24, 2015

Went on this Disney cruise with a total of 5 adults (one 30 year old in wheelchair).  We knew we would encounter children, but figured at this time of the year there many not be as many.  Thought wrong.  Disney caters to the families with children and tries to give the adults some pampering as well.  We did enjoy the adult areas, but think they could use a bigger pool area for adults. In this area, the seating for sunning is not very big and you found people trying to locate somewhere to sit. The pool is also very small and makes for a crowd when the sun is out.   Dining was an adventure - as we rotated between 3 different dining rooms.  The only thing I would have liked, is that if Disney could have had a section where they seated those groups that consisted of adults only.  We happen to have ended up beside of a crying baby that cried most nights at dinner.  We do realize that we were on a Disney cruise and did not complain, but now we know what you "may" run into.  

We took this cruise after hearing from other couples that went with out children (age group 60-70), they said you didn't really see the children.  So with this in mind, we went ahead and booked our cruise.  I had always wanted to go on a Disney Cruise and am happy that I did.  The shows were fantastic, the food selection was great and the wait staff was wonderful. 

Also, in traveling with a handicapped person confined to a wheelchair - the handicapped room was great, big and spacious and I think would have accommodated up to 5 people.  We slept 3 in the room, had plenty of space for the wheelchair to get around.  Even had a balcony they could get out on. I will say, that I was disappointed that there was not that special treatment for our handicapped party, as we have had on other ships.  When we have been on other cruise lines, we were met at the beginning of checking in, had someone who walked us through the crowds and help us maneuver getting on the ship with no problems.  And, when the cruise was over, we were met by the same person and escorted off the ship with their assistance.  It helps getting through the hordes of people crowding around the lobby trying to get off the boat.  (we also found that getting off the boat was we disorganized, we are use to being called by sections to get off cruise ships.  This was not the case on the Disney cruise - everyone kept piling into the lobby and trying to get off all at one time.....

So, if you don't mind possibly getting stuck beside crying children in the dining room and theatre, you should give it a try.   Will a book another Disney cruise? Probably not.  But at least I gave it a try, had a great time and enjoyed the week.

Again, if you are traveling with children, it would be a great cruise.  They cater to you and your family.  There is so much to do and see for you and your children.  Castaway Cay is a great relaxing place and they even have a section for adults only.  There are trams that take you to the different area on the island.

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!

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!

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.

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.
