I also appreciate the tips on tipping. ; ) As a former cocktail waitress, I'm in the "I'd rather die than undertip" category too....

thanks again for taking the time to post...

Enjoy the trip, please let us know what you think! It's good to plan on booking on board so you get the discount and on board credit, so being prepared is great.

The Fantasy is a magnificent ship, you should love it! If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to PM us.

Safe travel!

Thanks for the report! I love to relive the memories through other reports!

Silly question. Do you happen to know how long Rosie will be on the Fantasy? We had her as our assistant server over Christmas. I thought she had another 5 months from December in her contract, but not sure. I wanted to send her a little package with goodies but wasn't sure how long she will be there.

Thanks for the kind words! Loved our trip!


I'm sorry we can't remember just how long Rosie had left on her contract. We know we asked and we kind of think she was still going to be on board for a while. Wish we had a good answer!

My family and I joined you on this cruise It's fun hearing your "platinum" experience vs. my first time cruise experience! We had SO much fun, my only complaint was it was over before I knew it. As I read your report, it was truly bringing me back to my memories I was often experiencing these same events such as second dining in your same rotation as well as watching the live feed of the hypnotist (I had the sleeping 3 yo) and the 6 yo with two Shirley temples We were joking that maybe the hypnotist put him to sleep too...lol. Fantasy is very impressive, will I be disappointed if I book on Magic or Wonder now? We can't afford to cruise every year but we will def try to book again in 2015! Thanks for sharing

Thank you, I'm so glad you liked the report! Thats so cool that we crossed paths a number of times. I do have to admit we enjoyed the platinum perks, in spite of some of the whining about them on the boards. They add just a little extra magic.

Not sure we'll always be able to afford an annual cruise, though for us it's easier to afford two than four!

In my opinion I don't think you would be disappointed sailing on the Magic or the Wonder. They are beautiful ships as well much of the over all experience is the same. I love the Magic and wouldn't hesitate to sail in her or the Wonder again. And by 2015 they will both have gone through extensive dry docks and I am willing to bet get some of the same cool technological upgrades.
