We will be married 20 years this year so I finally convinced him that it was time to try a cruise as my anniversary/birthday present! We are going to follow up the cruise with a few days at WDW and are staying at Shades of Green. We almost always stay there because it is so much cheaper for us. I am the Disney fanatic in the family and my DH just follows along. Last year he was able to be stationed in Orlando for 6 months on active duty and I was thrilled to visit for Fall and Winter Breaks! Unfortunately, he came home just before spring break so only two trips to Disney that year but did get to go to MNSSHP and spent Christmas day in MK, both firsts for us. You know your military discounts are available most of the time at the other resorts too. We have a lot of friends and family in the military so they price it out both ways. Sometimes they end up at a Disney resort. I guess it's all about where you rank.

Thanks for all the great pictures and info, we are really in count down mode now. Most of the shopping is done for the trip but won't start packing for another week or so.
Please post some pics when you get back. I want to hear how much you like it.

Happy 20 years!

In the floor is a screen that they can put lots of different stuff on, and the lights above can be turned on/off in almost any patter I could think of.

This is also where they held the skit "If I were not upon the sea". I got to see the first performance of it ever on the Fantasy, and have a video linked in my youtube page if you want to see.

I can't wait to get back on in December!

Here's a few photos:

Sounds like the kids club floor! We don't get to experience the clubs at night because of the kids. (I won't leave them in the clubs, not all of them) I am hoping to go with my parents sometime this year and when we do I will be exploring the nightlife.

Thanks for sharing too. Great pix. I hope we can get on the Fantasy before the end of 2013. Trying to save up now.

Happy to hear that!We just got back yesterday; and my floors still have a little sway in them! Yes, it will be this way for up to a week. You will be fine. Have a drink, that eases it a little. I'm really going to give a shot at doing my first TR here. i guess i have to sign up for Photobucket. You inspired me to take a lot of Pics on this trip, got just about everything except I kept forgetting the food sometimes! Its 3/4 eaten and I remember! LOL. That's okay. People don't care as long as they see it. Photobucket is evil now. Since they changed it over, I have nothing good to say about it.Well, anyway You probably helped us get a 4 day cruise out of a 3 day with the advance planning, so thanks again! (Smiles!) Oh, one BIG change: Cabanas on embarkation day (and afterward) does NOT have crab legs anymore. they are now serving "Jonas" crab claws(?) they look exactly like stone crab claws but are not as good. Boo! I wonder if they only put them up for 4 nighters? That's interesting. BUT, the peel and eat (well, not really peel; they have already split and deveined it so its more "pull and eat") shrimp were great! My husband can eat plates and plates of them. I think that is his favorite food aboard DCL.Cabanas was definately a huge surprise of quality food. We usually dont do the buffets but this one is a hit!
I agree. Great selection, huh? Our first Dream cruise was so last second I had no time at all to plan. I can't wait to go again.
