The overall experience was great. Lots of good quality food and tons of entertainment . Pools are small but there is so much to do it doesn't matter. Great staff on ship. They couldn't be nicer. Clean and very attentive to everyones need.
The Disney Fantasy is spotless with plenty of entertainment for each and every passenger. Dinning is a pleasure to satisfy any palet. As always the crew members were friendly, helpful and curteous. We enjoyed our cruise so much that we booked a 7 night cruise for next April and intend to take one every year.
We love cruising with Disney. The service is fabulous, the entertainment is amazing and it is always a fabulous vacation! We love all the entertainment options on the Fantasy - the AquaDuck, the movie theater and the evening shows are some of our favorites.
This cruise was just for me (32 y/o female) and my mother (65 y/o female). We are both avid Disney fans, but we felt so out of place on this cruise. We realized we would rather have gone to Disney World and spent less money than take this cruise. It was good, food wasn't great, but we could have had a better time on Royal Caribbean for thousands of dollars less. This cruise was like a Royal Caribbean cruise but with Disney characters. I won't be taking another Disney Cruise.
The ship was clean and well kept. The food was plentiful but bland. The trip was the star wars cruise we had thought they would play the movie more often. It was difficult to get in to see at the times available. The staff was as always for Disney amazing. As previously stated we were disappointed in the food in comparison to our last Disney cruise. The steaks were awful and most of the food lacked seasoning.
The embarkation and debarkation processes are the best we have seen in the 6 cruises we have taken. The food in the main dining room is very good at times (last days) and average sometimes. The coffee is probably the worst at sea, even if prepared from Illy coffee into expresso based coffees.The service is excellent everywhere on the ship.
The ship itself is a wonderful Disney creation, from huge Nemo wall modaics to Mickey shaped lights and sinks in the bathrooms to picture frames that become animated when you approach.
the animation is fabulous. The appearances of Mickey and his crew are well timed and give rise to great dance parties. The princesses also make regular appearances at scheduled times. Remember to get tickets to take good free pictures. The pirate night is dynamic and lively, pefectly timed to end with nice but short fireworks.
The kids' club is amazing. The kids rush through supper and beg to go to the club where they are checked in and out via a wrist band to defined persons who must know the password for the child.
The cruise is amazing to live through as a child or through a child's eyes for an adult.
The nightly shows include three wonderful Disney stories. The last show is a disappointment as it caters mainly to adults and closes off the cruise without any use of Disney magic or emotion. They missed the "boat" on that one.
Overall, living this with the grandchildren was one of the best cruises we have ever had.
the Remy dining room is fabulous. Expensive but truly fabulous.
Beautiful ship! Great shows! Lots of young families traveling with grandma and grandpa.
Husband got a cold on third day and it became more of a challenge to enjoy. We went on tours the islands Tortola & St Thomas , which are beautiful and enjoyed our day at Castaway Cay. But we will only do another Disney if we have our family with us.
Not a large enough protected adult only area to set and read or take a nap or just visit with other adults and the age of the children were very young. Cute! But not relaxing.
This was my second cruise and the first with Disney. Half of our group are Disney fanatics so the on board characters and picture opportunities were available. One downside was the long lines to get the pictures taken. The ship was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The highlight had to be when lying on the beach on Castaway Cay, Captain Jack Sparrow was walking down the beach looking for his rum.
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!
