A Western Caribbean Fantasy by redbeardhoosier

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We always wondered if the "Disney difference" in cruising was true - and we found out, emphatically, that it is. What a wonderful cruise experience, from beginning to end. In cruising, you get what you pay for, and Disney is worth every penny. While not every cruise will be with Disney, I can see us regularly cruising Disney - with our daughters, one day with our grandchildren, and even just the two of us. Background. My wife and I are in our early 40s, we have two tween-age girls, aged 11 and 9 at the time of sailing (currently ages 12 and 10). This cruise was our fourth overall, and first with Disney Cruise Line. We are reasonably experienced cruisers, having taken (at the time of writing this review) five cruises on Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Disney, and MSC (and with five more booked on Norwegian and Disney). We travel as a family, and look for a mix of relaxation, family time (these two being my personal #1 priority), good food, entertainment, and fun in a cruise vacation. While I try to incorporate educational experiences, we do not usually seek out action/adventure experiences. For this cruise, we traveled with my parents, who are experienced cruisers but who had also never cruised with Disney. We booked (adjoining) staterooms 6104 and 6106, both a category 04D Deluxe Family Ocean View with Verandah, with no included promotions.

Fantastic 7 Night Cruise by GugaandRob

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Fantasy

First 7 night cruise back for Disney Fantasy post covid was exciting, covid protocols were necessary and non-intrusive. Masks were mandated in doors and enforced by Disney staff, as well as washing of the hands. We felt very safe with pre-testing in the garage prior to boarding.

Disney Does It Right by hilbry1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

It was probably the best cruise I've been on. I would go on more, but Disney can and does charge a premium for these cruises, but, it is a premium experience. If you're looking for a top-shelf cruising experience, this may be the ship for you.

Wonderful time on the Disney Fantasy! by Paul2017

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Great cruise, will sail with Disney Cruise Line again. We were a party of adults only and were concerned about this. However the adult areas were great and at dinner we were seated by ourselves (which we asked to when we booked the cruise). It was nice to see the kids and families play in the main areas and the pool areas and see the kids interact with the characters, but it was also nice to be able to go to the adult only pool area and bar areas.

AMAZING!!!! by brandela12

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Disney Fantasy

I loved it so much that I did a place holder aboard ship. I do feel that there are a few more benefits given to those who sail more than first time cruisers. I thought it would be the other way around to entice you to return but honestly everything was so wonderful that chiding to sail again was the easiest choice I have made. Enjoy every moment because ALL of it is amazing

7 Night Western Caribbean Disney Fantasy by clewtravel

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

This cruise was amazing with a Star Wars Day at Sea.  Our dining staff was especially good this time around.  It was our first Disney Cruise where all four kids could go into the secured play area so we thought we would have a lot of time alone, but with so much to do, the kids were always splitting time between the kids areas and with us to explore.  Lots to explore and do on the ship too!

2019 Fantasy Cruise by kitcat

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Looking forward to our next DCL cruise. Wanted to do Palo Brunch but no reservations left, will reserve early on line next time. Not too keen on the Star Wars Day at sea, would prefer Marvel, but we will look into it. Overall love the DCL cruises never have issues with sickness, they keep an extremely clean ship, staff is always cleaning and making guests wash hands.

Expecting much more for price! by MrsCee

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Very nice ship. Cabins were small, but plenty of storage. I especially liked under bed for luggage. Balconies were also very small. I didn't like Eastern Caribbean itinerary for children, St. Marteen & St. Thomas, as not many shore excursions foe young children. We did the beach on St. Marteen & Butterfly Garden on St. Thomas. The beaches are nice on St. Thomas but we were there many times. Castaway Cay the children loved, as did we. Lunch was great & the pirate ship play area in the water. Lifeguards & secure area in the water. Plenty of lounge chairs & umbrellas. All activities were cancelled on Castaway Cay due to wind. (Not very windy). We wanted a Cabana but they only have 20 & to get one you have to be a member of Castaway Cay, which is their club for numerous Disney cruises. They charge $549.. 

Back to the Fantasy. The pools were extremely small for a ship of that size. The kids were packed like sardines in the pools. Adult pool was small also. We did not use adult pool for that reason. They had  splash areas for small children. Children in swim diapers are not allowed in the pool. 

I didn't care for the dining. You rotate dining in different restaurants with the same servers. Our servers were good. All the staff was great! Food was good. Cabanas,the buffet restaurant was ok. Always had to search for a table as it was crowded for breakfast & lunch. Nice variety of food. However one day a girl puked right in front of us & we called for help. I feel they should have closed that side of the restaurant immediately. She puked more than once. We are still sick. We got sick on our last morning & our still not symptom free. Norovirus. The other little food court type restaurants were not very good. They had Philly cheesesteaks, not good, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, fries, bagged potato chips & a small bar for condiments for burgers, hot dogs & steak. They had pizza too. Nothing was very good & long lines.

I also didn't like the fact that you had times & locations for Characters, always lines. They should have been walking around the ship & in dining restaurants. Shows were ok. Movies were first run, but you had to pay for popcorn, $3.50.

Pirate night by the pools, which they closed the floor over the pools to fir more people, were completely packed with people. I couldn't stay as I felt like I couldn't breath with so many people. 

My honest opinion not worth all the money Disney charges. We have cruised on Royal Caribbean many times, Holland,(not kid friendly) & Princess. All were good & much less expensive.

Our Grandslam Cruise on the Fantasy! by MaelstromTroll

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy

This was our grandslam cruise with Disney having been on all the ships. We still call the Wonder our home ship but the Fantasy is larger, has more amenities, and 10/10 customer service. Every staff member that makes eye contact greets you, the entertainment director walked around after shows meeting people, the characters randomly walk around the ship making for fun, impromptu meets, and the food was very good. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Best experience for 1st time cruisers by TwinDuty2012

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

For our first cruise, we were so pleased and had a blast. Overall great experience for us all. Would definite recommend for anyone. We booked our next cruise for Feb 2019. We are hooked. While I love Disney I never enjoyed the parks but know I’ve found a whole new way to enjoy and regain a new love of Disney. Best part is even adults can be kids.

Disney is the best (as if you didn't already know that) by DragonFi

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

Disney is always fun for both adults and kids. They know how to entertain and keep that entertainment rolling from stepping onto the ship until you step off. The staff is fantastic and carry that Disney spirit with them in all areas from cleaning to cabins to restaurants to bar staff. Fantastic food, great entertainment, quiet time for adults, loud time for kids and even fun for the youngest members in the nursery. Can't beat a Disney cruise!

Great trip by greglissadisney

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

As always Disney does it right, from boarding to getting off the ship is smooth and stress free, make sure you have right documents for boarding and this will be trouble free. Enjoy sea days as they are so relaxing, plenty of food 24/7, staff ( including those who have nothing to do with you ) are friendly and always speak and say good morning, ship is spotless and take a yeti cup, the ones they provide at drink station are small and your drink will be watered down in no time, you will save wasted cups and wasted watered down drinks

Evan In A Hurricane, Still great! by FamilyCruisers

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was our second time on the Disney Fantasy. We missed Castaway Cay which was such a bummer. But the staff made the best of it. Kids had a blast and so did we. Only complaint was debarkation. We were assigned breakfast at 7:15. And if you missed it you didn't get breakfast. What a made house. We were finally able to leave at 11:27am.

Fantasy is Fantastic! by cruisersforlife

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Fantasy / Destination: Caribbean - Western

The Disney Fantasy is a beautiful ship to sail anywhere on!  The service was wonderful and there was always something to do aboard ship.  As with all Disney cruises, the experience was great fun for the whole family and we plan on many more cruises on all the Disney ships.
