When the perfect family vacation comes to mind, it could be filled with thoughts of smiles and laughter, excitement and thrills, and of course, something for everyone. Is this perfect family vacation just a dream? Not if you’re onboard the Disney Fantasy.
With it’s inaugural voyage on March 31, 2012, the Disney Fantasy is the latest mega-ship to cruise the waters of the Caribbean. While the 130,000-ton ship can carry 4.000 passengers, it’s more important to note that there’s a 1:2.75 passenger to crew/cast ratio onboard the Disney Fantasy meaning your family will get all the attention it deserves.
Alternating between 7-night eastern and western Caribbean itineraries, Disney Fantasy departs Port Canaveral, FL, for ports of call including Dutch St. Maarten; St. Thomas/St. John, USVI; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Cozumel, Mexico; Costa Maya, Mexico; and Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.
With spacious staterooms decorated with a traditional nautical flair, families can choose from economical inside cabins to family staterooms complete with private verandahs. When it comes time for dining, the Disney Fantasy allows your family to dine where you want on any given night – the fun Animator’s Palate, elegant Enchanted Gardens, adults-only Remy restaurant, the fairly tale Royal Court, and more - they’re all impressive by any standard.
Since Disney is all about entertainment, the fully trained staff on the Disney Fantasy is able to care for children aged 3-months at It’s a Small World Nursery to age 17 at the trendy Vibe lounge designated for teens only. While the kids are taken care of, Mom & Dad can enjoy a variety of themed nightclubs & lounges including an Irish Pub and the romantic European-feel of Ooh La La - plus an adults-only swimming pool and lounge area.
Located high atop Deck 12 and offering thrilling ocean views, Disney Fantasy’s AquaDuck juts out from the side of the ship as it sends guests sliding along a 765’ acrylic tube featuring coaster-like twists and turns spanning the height of four ship decks. And in true Disney fashion, you must be 42” tall to enjoy this ride and if not, there are 3 freshwater swimming pools to splash about in plus numerous other venues like Mr. Toad’s Wild Race and Broadway-style shows including Disney’s Believe and Aladdin.
