What is your "MUST DO" on your cruise?

Going on the fantasy in September... What are the things I MUST do?

On embarking, go straight to the pools while they are clean and empty!

I just love the "Alone Time" spa treatment.

Chill on a lounger - alone - away from the pools with an IPOD looking at the sea pass by!
(There are certain songs that I will hear and it brings me right back to that moment on the ship)

Palo dinner, Palo Brunch.

Catch the show Dreams.

Enjoy being rocked to sleep - best sleep I've ever had.

Cookies and milk at least one time at night.

Have a wonderful trip!

My favorite things are the aqua-duck, Mini golf, muppett caper interactive paintings. Movies on the big screen, hot tubs, reading and relaxing. No work!

Agree with many of the PP's, especially the "relax" advice.

We love to:
  • Start the cruise with a beverage at the Cove bar right after we get on board. It helps pass the time until the room is ready.
  • Go to Meridian in the evening on a port day so we can watch the port disappear on the horizon and the sun go down.
  • Have afternoon cheese and crackers from room service on our veranda
  • Dine in Palo or Remy

Relaxing with a drink in any of the cool bars. Having a delicious fancy coffee at the Cove Cafe. The heated loungers. The Aladdin show. The Muppet Detective Agency. The comfortable bed. Relaxing with a drink in any of the cool bars. Oh wait, I said that twice

See if they have chocolate dipped strawberries in Cove Cafe. On our B2B they did, and I was in there every day, getting one for me and one for DH, which he conveniently never ate and shared with me.

Cool Fireworks!

Just got back from Disney Wonder cruise Feb.21st. The sail away was so crowded that DH and I made plans to get a sitting area with a bit of security from ie pushing from other cruisers.

We found the perfect spot Albiet, too early for our 6yr old Grandson. He could not wait in the area as long as we were prepared to. Will never know if he was just bored waiting, too tired after a full day, remembered the closeness of others during sail away; At any rate he wanted to return to the cabin.

At dinner next day, were heard how great it was! The weather was perfect up there, warm, no wind, Auggg!

So, future cruisers I'd say Go early, (perhaps our timing too early though) plan to entertain little ones while waiting, and STAY! From what we understood it Is a must do!

1. Check for chocolate covered strawberries and order All Hands on Deck!
2. Rebook onboard
3. Watch any new release movies in the theater (I feel like I really get a good deal when people back home are paying for them)
4. (sorry...I had to add one more) Be one of the first footprints left in the sand on the beach at Castaway Cay. LOVE THAT!

HAVE FUN!

OP will be sailing on the Fantasy, which has neither of those things.
