My wife and I took the April 9 cruise offered by Disney on the Disney Fantasy. We are two seniors (68,69). The cruise was during many families spring break. The cruise director said there were 3800 passengers on this sailing so it was pretty full. We never at any time felt that the large number of kids on board was a problem. Spent our pool and sun tanning hours on the decks reserved for those 18+. Never had a problem finding a lounge chair to lay on to catch some sun. So, if you are traveling without any children I would hit the adults only areas. We had second seating at dinner. Most families with children eat at the main seating. We like second seating as it is later and we don't feel we have to rush back to the ship from shore excursions. We see the first showing (6:15) of the shows whatever entertainment is being offered and then still have time to kill before our dinner at 8:15. We had terrific food servers. Actually, the main server, Ronaldo, was our server on the Disney Magic in 2011 on a Mediterranean cruise. We requested him in 2013 when we found out he was sailing on the Fantasy for our western Caribbean cruise. Requested him again for our eastern Caribbean cruise April 9-16. We booked a cruise for summer of 2017 and told our server that we would see him again! That would be cruise number 4 with him. By the way, his name is Ronaldo and he is absolutely the best. Our cabin was a deluxe family oceanview cabin with veranda (9112). Plenty of storage, and plenty of room for two seniors that's for sure. The split bathroom is a real plus. Our cabin hostess was Andrea from Jamaica. She was absolutely the best. Cabin was spotless and sparkling. Provided us with fresh, clean towels at least three times a day and we didn't even ask for it. Our cruise took us to Tortola, BVI, St. Thomas USVI, and Castaway Cay. Three at sea days also. It was a very nice leisurely cruise for us which we enjoyed immensely. When in St. Thomas do take in the Paradise Point Skyride. Amazing views from the top. We had no complaints about service, food, entertainment. This was our 6th Disney cruise and we enjoyed it because of the great service Disney provides. If you have time and also don't mind an extra charge of $30.00 per person, you should eat at Palo for brunch or dinner. We did both the brunch and a dinner and it was fantastic as usual. Disney probably is more expensive than other cruise companies but I believe you get what you pay for. We were docked next to the Carnival Splendor and let me tell you looking at that ship compared to the Disney Fantasy, it is a rust bucket. The Fantasy was spotless!!!

Another Fantastic Time on the Disney Fantasy
