Tell me about the Fitness Center on the Fantasy...

So can the fitness center be used as a regular gym? Im not really interested in doing any classes or anything. I just want to continue my workout routine on the ship. A bit of cardio with free weights and a few machines is what I require. Thanks!

They are available but you have to time your workout right. It gets very crowded in the mornings and it is hard to get a cardio machine. There also isn't much room for more than 2 people at a time to do free weights or you will be banging into each other.

Yes, it gets very crowded in the morning. They really should add some more free weights but they have plenty of machines. It's a pretty good gym, especially for a cruise ship.

DH got a treadmill at 6:30AM and it was full. It takes me longer to get motivated and by then it was useless to try. So, walking worked the best for us most of the time.

What about late morning? I have no problem going to breakfast and doing a few things before going to work out.

I work for the company that makes the exercise equipment that they put in the Disney Ships. They use our all of our cardio Treads, Crosstrainers and bikes. They also use our selectorized equipment (Signature Series). As far as free weights they have a dumbell rack and a core section. If you want to look up the type of equipment go to lifefitness . com ... I was just on the Dream during Halloween and was so looking forward to working out but two weeks before vaction I broke my foot

Have fun and try not to eat to much.

If the treadmills are full, don't forget there's always the option of running around the ship on Deck 4. On the Magic/Wonder, its about a 1/3 mile loop. I think the Dream/Fantasy are slightly longer.

Yes. There are ellipticals, treadmills, stationary bikes and (i think) stair machines.
