Ship: Disney Fantasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 9000
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We had an amazing trip on the Disney Fantasy. The kids club is top notch and my teen enjoyed the homecoming party and starring in the zombie movie the teen group made. We had plenty of family time as well as alone time for the hubby and I.  The shows were top notch and the food was very good.  We enjoyed Remy and Palo specialty restaurants and both places remembered to honor our anniversary.  Which was very nice!  We were able to snag a cabana on Castaway Cay and it was well worth the cost.  We had a great family vacation and we can't wait to go back.  Tip: The aqueduct is so fun but try to ride as soon as possible after boarding and on days at port, or the line can get quite long.  I did write a blog post about our trip if anyone is interested, I can send the link.  Definitely a fun cruise line for families.  Elegant, but whimsical at the same time!

Food and Dining

Food was good, a little better on Royal Caribbean, but the specialty restaurants were amazing!

Onboard Activities

You have to try the detective agency! It will make you burn off all the calories from eating by making you run around the ship. The Aqueduct was so much fun as well!

Children's Programs

My kids all loved the different programs, from the kids clubs to the teen club. They all had a great time!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
You couldn't put down an empty plate without it being whisked away by a service member with a smile. Not just at dinner, but wherever you were eating. The workers were all so friendly!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had an Oceanview family room for 5 people. Without us asking, the stateroom staff brought us extra blankets and pillows for the kids. The window was huge and you could sit in it. The kids loved that part! Chocolates and towel animals every night was fun, and the double bathroom was great!

Ship Tip

The characters will just be walking around. We snagged pics with Goofy just walking around and Peter Pan was hopping down the stairs chatting with my son. It's like they are cruising with you!

Expensive port, but nice

Grab a cabana if you can. It was so relaxing! The giant Pelican Plunge slide was so crowded we waited in line for almost an hour and had barely moved in line, so we ditched that idea. You also get all you can eat food on the island as well included in the cruise price.
