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!

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.

OK BUT NOT GREAT

Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: May 24, 2014

SHIP IS OUT OF THIS WORLD, I AM OLD FASHION WHEN IT COMES TO

SHIPS. VERY CLEAN EVERYWHERE ONE GO. HELP,   VERY GUEST FRIENLY. STORES HAVE GREAT MERCHANDISE AND PRICES ARE NORMAL AND SAME AS IN DISNEY STORES AND PARKS.  MY STATE ROOM WAS GREAT, BACK OF THE SHIP (AFT) LARGE BALCONY, BIG BATHROOM AND BEST OF ALL THE SIZE OF THE ROOM, MUST MENTION WE DID PAY EXTRA FOR THIS BUT IT WAS WORTH IT. NOW THIS IS WHAT WENT VERY WRONG: ON THE SECOND DAY IT WAS MY B/DAY SO I TREATED MY WIFE AND SISTER IN LAW TO A $ 125.00 DLS FACIAL EACH AT THE SPA, WHEN WE GOT TO THE SPA THW LADY AT THE FRONT DESK TOLD ME THAT THE LADIES HAD A GREAT SKIN AND EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO BE OK. WHILE THE TWO OF THEM(WIFE/INLAW) WERE INSIDE AND I WAS GONE FROM THE SPA MY WIFE WAS TOLD THAT THEY WERE GOING TO GET A DIFFERENT TREATMENT NO THE ONE THAT I HAD PICKED, WIFE CALL FOR THE MANAGER AND WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS OK BECAUSE THE PRICE WAS EVEN LESS THAT THE ONE I HAD PICKED.  IT TURNED OUT TO BE $ 400.00 DLS, NOT $ 250.00. I GOT RIPED OFF BIG BIG TIME, WENT TO GUEST SERVICES AND ONE GENTLEMAN SAID HE WAS GOIN TO TALK TO THE SPA MANAGER, TO THIS DAY NEVER HEARD FROM THEM, BE AWARE. THIS WAS ENOUGH TO RUIN THE WHOLE TRIP. BAD TASTING SOFT DRINKS, NOT THE REGULAR COKACOLA TASTE NOT ONLY FROM US BUT FROM OTHER TRAVELERS AND ALSO EMPLOYEES. NOT THE GREATEST PORTS TO VISIT. WE TOOK A TOUR ON GRAN CAYMAN TO THE TURTLE FARM BUT THE BUS THAT TOOK US THERE IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN APROVED BY DISNEY TO TAKE TOURS, IT HAD BROKEN SEATS WITH TORN COVERS AND VERY VERY DIRTY AND DUSTY INSIDE NOT TO MENTION DIRTY WINDOWS. HAVE TO MENTION THE PRICE OF THAT NIGHTMARE, IT WAS $ 150.00 DLS. I WOULD THINK TWICE BEFORE I DUMP $ 6400,00 DLS FOR A DISNEY CRUISE AGAIN. WILL I RECOMEND IT TO A FRIEND OR FAMILY MENBER, MAYBE NOT.

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.

Evening Shows

Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Jun 07, 2014

We enjoyed the cruise tremendously.  My one negative critique is that the evening shows are geared, in majority, to English speaking people, and not to non-anglosphone children.  My granddaughter is beginning to pick up English (she presently speaks French) and became bored during the shows, particularly when the cruise director went on and on.  I strongly believe it isn't necessary for him to come back in the middle of a show to rant on and on.  If he does this to allow decor and costume changes, then change the performances to allow each one to flow into the other.  Song and dance is fine and my little one enjoyed these numbers.  However, we left in the middle of each show and finally opted out for two of them.  I'm certain she wasn't the only one on board who didn't master the English language and I saw other guests leaving with their children.

 

Thank you.

Popular Tips for Disney Fantasy


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.

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!

Plan on and extended time to debark. Get away and go to the adult pool to relax and enjoy the hot tub.
