We've been on the Magic, Wonder, and Dream (Fantasy in 5 weeks). The Wonder is my favorite of the ships.

To me, if they can transplant the attitude/service standard of the Wonder to the Dream, it would be perfect. Because the service/food on the Dream was a bit lacking (both times we sailed on her), I personally prefer the Wonder.

I haven't been on the Fantasy, but my family members tell me that its even better (features wise) than the Dream. They thought the food on the classic ships was better, but liked the Fantasy more overall.

I have only been on the Dream and have the Fantasy and Dream booked for future cruises. I can't bring myself to try the Wonder and Magic after being on the Dream. I would miss the Aquaduct, adult area, kids clubs, and trying the new concierge area. If I had sailed the Wonder or Magic first, I may be singing a different tune!

We have been on all 4 of the ships. Our most recent experience was on a b-to-b on the Dream (couldn't handle the idea of getting off after only 3 or 4 days). I have to say, we met some of the best CMs on that ship (Alex in Merchandise, Dan in Entertainment, and tall Kadir in Beverages, specifically). And the food was some of the best Disney cruise food we've had (the worst being on our May Hawaiian cruise last year...OMG!). As for favorites, it's hard to say. The Magic feels like home, but I do love the adult areas on the Fantasy and Dream, despite the tiny adult pool. I don't think you can go wrong w/any of them. That said, I do think the newer ships are better for kid play areas too.

My Order of Preference:

1. Magic
2. Dream
3. Fantasy
4. Wonder

And yes, I cruise on any of these ships is better than sitting at home!
Why do you prefer the Dream over the Fantasy?

Do you mean AleC versus AleX?? If so, he was on the Magic in Oct 2011 - we loved him!!! Talked to him everyday and some at great lengths We went on the Dream in Feb 2012, but he wasn't there....
