2 Grown Ups (sort of) Go West on the Fantasy

Day 2- Boarding the Fantasy, Getting Lost, & Meeting Up

Day 3-Super Bowl Sunday at Sea

Day 4- Grand Cayman & Stingray City

Day 4- Missing the Boat and the Enchanted Garden

Day 5- Costa Maya and the Rainforest

Day 5- Royal Court & Pop!

Day 6- Cozumel & Satellite Falls

Day 6- Palo, Pirate Night and Fire in the Sky

Day 7- Bingo, Galley tour, and Fish Extenders

Day 7- Believe and a Surprise Dinner

Day 8- Castaway Cay & the AquaDuck

Day 8- Beer from around the world and our final dinner

Day 8- Ship Pics & Fantasy Tips

Day 9- Odds & Ends, Breakfast & Dentures

The End! Thank you for reading!

Loving your TR!!!!
We are not sure my DH will be able to get off the boat so I loved all the descriptions of the good time you had on port days without going ashore. And all the food pix! And guess I'll break down and get a Rainforest pass!

thanks again!

My husband says he goes on Disney cruises for the ships not the ports. Last year he didn't get off the ship AT ALL except for Castaway Cay. So him getting off the ship in Grand Cayman was a big deal. The rainforest pass is the best $16 you'll spend!

Thank you for reading!

More More More, I love your Trip Report. What do you get for the $16 at the Rainforest?

For the $16 day pass at the Rainforest you can use the 3 saunas, 4 fun showers, 2 hot tubs, and 10 heated tile loungers. It's SO relaxing in there!

I just read your trip review from start to finish. I wanted to thank you for taking the time to write all of that and share your trip with us. It looks like you had a blast and I'm so excited for my first cruise on the Fantasy!
