Ship Facts: Disney Fantasy Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Disney Fantasy Deck Plans
Magical voyage on the Disney Fantasy

We felt that we had to write something as this was our 2nd Disney Cruise (first one 6 yrs ago on the Disney Wonder) and we had an absolute blast. A lot has been written about the ship but it is truly a beautiful vessel with an eye for detail only Disney has. As we are adults traveling without children we adored Satellite Falls and the Europa district. The reason why we choose Disney is because of their food, their shows, their service and attention for detail only Disney has. The food in the main dining rooms is of superb quality and we loved it. On the contrary, our night at Palo was not that special as it was 6 yrs ago, The restaurant is too big and the food is good but not excellent. Especially as the food is already excellent in the main dining restaurants. Perhaps we are a bit spoiled as well with fine Italian delicacies close to our home. The shows are breathtaking although we missed the Soul show of Hercules that we adored on the Wonder and that was a bit more adult orientated and a bit less Disney character themed as the other shows. Our balcony cabin was excellent and there is truly a lot of wardrobe space to put your clothes in. And we don't travel light! Amazing!

About the ports of call:

St. Maarten was nice. At least the Dutch part. We didn't like the French side where (low season) a lot was closed, where the buildings were not that well maintained etc.

St. Thomas is absolutely beautiful. High mountains, breathtaking beaches and very green! We definitely want to go back there some day.

Castaway Cay is as always a fantastic retreat. We head straight for the adults beach and will only leave it for our barbecue lunch.

To be honest it was low season, so guess the ship was sailing at a 70% capacity and that was just good, If it would have been fully booked I'm not sure if we would have enjoyed it so much (too crowded then).

As Disney is usually the first one with everything we would appreciate free wifi onboard! Rates as on other cruise liners are too high. Especially as there is not even free wifi in the Disney terminal so we did not have the opportunity to download the new Navigator App they were launching softly. Think of the international guests Disney!

And last but not least, try to put some signs in the room, on the balconies and in the hallwayss that guests (including children) need to be more quiet from 10 pm till 8 am. Children running in the hallways at 11 pm making a lot of noise is quite disturbing as well as shuffling chairs and tables on your balcony at 7 am.

Nevertheless we booked our next cruise onboard and will be heading for the Southern Caribbean on Sept. 20th 2014. Sailing the Disney Magic. Can't wait to go!

PS: We completely forgot to mention how amazing and beautiful the Spa is. You have to experience this!
