Live From The Fantasy.... Airport Checkin No more`

First time on the Fantasy, and first holiday cruise (and therefore, we are partaking in Fantasy's inaugural Christmas cruise.) This ship and cruise is pretty nice and amazing. The designers got it 90% right with some misses.

Also, airport check in is no more (you can still board the bus early at say 9:30and get into terminal early, not sure if that buys you an early boarding time)

More later in a report...

Let us know if you have any questions. Now off the the beach in Cozumel.....

The change for check in was reported two weeks ago. You do not get an early boarding number with MCO DCL transfers anymore. It is based on the PAT that you selected online.

I completely missed that thread. Did they mention the reason? What a bummer!

Considering Holiday cruise next year

At the risk of being disowned, husband and I who have done 4 Disney cruises and have no children are seriously considering a holiday cruise in 2013. We love our family to pieces but this year in 17 years of Christmases with young and wonderful nieces and nephews we felt rushed and never relaxed. Thank God we took off from work today as I am still in PJ'S doing nothing but research for next year. ALL.THAT.SAID.

Has it felt like Christmas on the ship?
Did your family have a tree in your cabin?
Do they have interfaith Christmas Eve Services?

How has the weather been in the ports of call? In May we were on the Eastern Fantasy cruise and the weather was amazing.

Thats all I got for now.
Thanks heaps!

We did the Holiday cruise on the Magic last year and it was truly magical! Tons of extra surprises left in your stateroom after dinner. The kids visited Santa in the lobby on Christmas morning and every child received a very nice full size Disney/ Pixar calendar for 2012. Christmas dinner was a formal night and the menu was great. The entire ship was decorated and we even saw a rainbow at sea on Christmas morning! Also, theres nothing like Mickey waffles for breakfast on Christmas! It was wonderful to hang by the pool drinking a beer and wearing my swim suit and Santa hat!
