Disney Fantasy

June 2014 - Disney Fantasy to Caribbean - Eastern

It's Magical!

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.

drprados's Tips

Philipsburg, St. Maarten - We did not care forthis island. I'm sure the resorts are beautiful and if you're the type of person that will spend their time in the resort, then this island is for you.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Amazing, not enough time to enjoy, this is where you want to spend time at the beach and walk around. We definitely want to go back. Very inexpensive shopping.
Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island) - It's Disney...so AMAZING! The only thing people were getting bit by "sea lice", it makes you want to scratch all the time. Apparently, June is when these tiny creatures are out, luckily in the early afternoon it wasn't as bad.
Disney Fantasy Disney Fantasy - Go to the pools after 2pm, it's a nightmare in the morning, way too many people and the pools are very tiny, this would be our only complaint. The ship is "GRAND" but the "family" pools don't do it justice. We enjoyed the later seating for dinner, it gave us more time to stay at the pool.
