“The Happiest Place on Earth” tends to be misconstrued as a place where only families with youngsters gather year-round. But we all know any adult can feel like a kid again with a little pinch of pixie dust. Member Pens fan falls into the category of adults who are past Donald Duck hats and kiddie pools; she, her husband and 15-year-old son simply love the spirit of Disney Cruise Line.
Sailing Disney Fantasy was a first for the family, who had cruised twice before on Disney Wonder. And the ship quickly became a favorite.
The slightest extra space in their verandah cabin made getting ready each night as easy as abracadabra. During the day, the adults-only pool area made for a tranquil retreat for the adults, where they could avoid the sounds of splashing and crying that prevailed in other parts of the ship. After hours, Pens fan and her husband felt safe letting their son venture off to the teen lounge, while they sipped wine under the stars. But with their favorite evening hot spots closed by midnight, they wished for more options.
Off the ship, their Eastern Caribbean itinerary impressed less than the ship itself. But after testing the waters (pun intended) with a few excursions, they have ideas for their next visit (for now, a Mediterranean cruise to Neverland is already in the works). Read Pens fan’s full review to get a taste of the food and entertainment aboard Disney Fantasy.
For their efforts, Pens fan and four other Reviewers of the Week — Metsfan30, CaribbeanBound, jsb1950 and Sky&Health — receive Cruise Critic logo items.
