Our family, two adults and two children, just returned from the Thanksgiving cruise on the Disney Fantasy. We loved it so much we booked another cruise while onboard. Our kids, ages 8 and 10, loved the Oceaneer Lab; it was difficult to get them to leave! The spa is beautiful and peaceful, and if it's in your budget, we highly recommend buying a membership to the Rainforest area of the spa. Hot tubs overlooking the ocean, heated lounge chairs, saunas and steam rooms, just heavenly. The food is very good for a cruise ship, however, given the number of meals to be served each day, it (understandably) does not measure up to five-star restaurants. What set the cruise apart for us was the level of service. Every request was granted with a smile. The staff seemed to go out of their way to anticipate our needs, if a request was made on one night, the staff repeated it on other nights without our asking. Due to the high winds on the first couple of days, the Aquaduck was closed, once it opened our 8 year old daughter rode it constantly. Our son loved the Donald pool and the Arr-Cade. Embarkation and disembarkation were a breeze, prior to boarding we left our luggage in our precruise room at the Orlando airport Hyatt, DCL picked it up and delivered it to our stateroom. When leaving, DCL printed our boarding passes and checked our baggage to our home airport. We really had a wonderful time and can't wait until our next cruise on the Fantasy!

Cabin Review

Cabin 7632
A spacious room with a super-comfortable queen size bed. The kids loved that the couch turned into bunk beds. We were concerned that our stuff wouldn't fit in the room and we'd be living out of suitcases, but there was plenty of room to completely unpack and stow the suitcases under the bed.
