Perfect summer vacation!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: May 09, 2015

My 11 year old daughter and I went on our first cruise ever on the Disney Fantasy in May and had a wonderful time! The ship was beautiful and spotless, the staff was attentive to every need, and the entertainment was really enjoyable. My daughter loved going to the Edge while I went to the spa.  We had the late dining seating and found that to be perfect to allow us extra time during the day to enjoy the activities and shows. Food was great and our servers were fantastic. Two things to note- (1) we snorkeled and had excursions at every port and I would say that we probably "over-booked"- we didn't need to plan as much as we did as there is lots to do so we did feel a little rushed during those days and (2) the pools on the ship are very small so do not expect to swim but there are so many other things that it wasn't a disappointment. The line for the Aquadunk does get long sometimes so you do have to plan for a wait.  Overall, we would go on another Disney cruise in a heartbeat.

Great First Disney Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: May 09, 2015

The experience was excellent.  Learning the tips prior to your trip helps as well.  Two items per stateroom can be left at guest services for all the characters to sign instead of you having to wait on each line with them.  Joining a fish exchange group through FB made it even more memorable.  My only low items would be paying for popcorn on a cruise to watch a show seemed off since everything but alcohol is free on a cruise and no wi-fi.

San Juan 7 day Fantasy

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: May 02, 2015

Cruise was great Disney can't be beat.  Excellent service, staff was the greatest yet. I fell in San Juan and broke my wrist, the wait staff at meals were so concerned and helpful, they made my experience wonderful.  Our wait saff Melba even went so far as to cut my food for me.   10 STAR rating.  Thank You Disney!!

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE AND QUALITY

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Disney Fantasy | Sail Date: Apr 11, 2015

My family and I enjoyed our Disney Cruise so very much I would definitely recommend it to others.  Our party consisted of children with special needs, a senior citizen, and one adult with special diet and allergy care.  All of which were met.  The one person in our party, that could only eat Gluten free foods, did not have much variety to choose from but for the most part she received exceptional care and attention when it came to pre-ordering her meals.  There was one Autistic adult and two Kindergarten age children with Aspergers. Both have difficulty processing everyday sensory information such as sounds, sights and smells but the ship had so much activity that accommodated their needs (there were toddler play areas that did not trigger their sensory overload and room service was always readily available should smells become an issue or just simply  when they needed a quiet time away from the many activities on the ship. They were treated exceptionally well and had a blast!

Spring Break

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

Disney knows service. Great entertainment, new movie premiere release while on board, food and selection was excellent! You can do as much or as little as you want on this ship. Be in middle of the party or a quiet secluded part all to yourself.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
