Christmas on the Disney Fantasy 2012

Sail Date: December 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral

Where do I start? Overall, Disney Fantasy is THE nicest ship I have ever seen/been on. Starting with the Family greeting when you walk through the Atrium. Disney knows what they are doing. Service, forget about it. Everything you need is taken care of. Dining room experience is incredible. Rotational dining with the same waiter is a nice touch. Food never got old or unattractive. Dinner was always delicious. Good variety of dinner options. Kids menu was good also. Free soda at dinner was a nice touch, plus all the self service free soda everywhere else was nice.

The boat did move a little more than i am used too, not sure if it was the seas or the design of the boat, it seemed a little narrower than Royal Caribbean's Boats. I did feel the moving of the boat and not just at night.

Kids programs, fantastic! my 4 yr old and 6yr old had a blast. hours 9am to midnight and a couple nights til 1am plus they feed the kiddos. Awesome! Character appearances at the More kids club, games played, crafts, video games, u name it they had it. Mickey and pals appearance s on the boat, My kids both filled up their autograph books with signatures from all the characters and princesses. Pictures, good thing they had the all picture package, if you take all the pictures and professional setups they have you have no choice other than paying 20 bucks per photo it is a good deal.

Ports were Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, Cozumel, and Castaway Cay(review in port section) Other than the price and smaller room than I like I can't complain about the cruise. It was nice being there on Christmas Day with Christmas Carolers singing in the Atrium, cookies and Hot Cocoa being served to everyone.

Almost forgot about the shows, By far the best entertainment I have seen at sea. Disney's original shows do not disappoint. Buckets N Boards were outstanding family fun. Will definitely do a Disney cruise again. Less

Cabin review: Disney Fantasy 6024

Smaller room than i prefer, Disney counts the Balcony in the room size, room was about 150 sq ft. Not enough outlets, small walkway difficult to move around room, drop down bed was nice and a space saver. storage under bed was nice, closet space good, would prefer bed further away from entrance of the room instead of queen bed then couch I would like it reversed to have more space in room/walkway. Room was not overly noisy, no inside cabins on deck 6. Close enough to elevator.

Port and Shore Excursions


Beach was incredible, food was free and good, service on the island is outstanding, I saw our main dining room waiter(Sheldon) from India there, he is amazing! Disney goes all out on their island and it shows.

Beach Break

(5)
Good excursion, a little overpriced at 79 per adult, 59 for kiddos, beach was nice, included open bar and buffet lunch, buses use were 1st class, didn't like the walk to the bus through the streets of Cozumel, water park/play area for kids is amazing! food was decent, drinks strong, have kayaks, bumble bee boats, Hobbie cats for free use, overall nice excursion at Playa Mia, Cozumel.
