It will be me, my DH and DD8 as well as my mom, dad and grandma! So four generations and a once in a lifetime trip for us as well!

We are celebrating 2013 as the year of our big "5" birthdays...45, 65 and 85 for my gram!!!

how wonderful! 4 generations!! that is so lovely!! you are going to have an absolute blast. there is something for EVERYONE on board the fantasy. the ship is absolutely beautiful.

this indeed was my trip of a lifetime too. but it was worth every penny. i don't regret it one bit as we created lifelong memories together.

happy early birthdays to all of you!

However as we are from Australia I can't see us ever sailing the Bahamas again so we are thinking let's do it in style :-) I just want to be clear on what we will get for our $2300.

So we will have loads more room, a spa (whirlpool) tub in the bathroom with a tv in the mirror and the privilege of ordering a hot breakfast and dinner from the MDRs. Is there anything else we could look forward to? We would already have the concierge shoreside and lounge on the ship as we are booked in a cat V room.

Anyway if you can give me anymore feedback on the room and whether it was 'worth' it for you I would be very appreciative :-)



don't forget there are changing lights (blue & green) in the whirlpool tub in the HUGE bathroom!! the tub was so nice to soak in with the jets & the water got super hot. i loved it so much as did my mom who suffers from chronic pain.

but to answer your questions, how many is traveling in your party?? there were only 3 in my room. however, we had so much space to enjoy & relax in our rooms. i've read that people don't spend time in their rooms as they spend most of it outside on the ship but we spent quite a bit of time in our room as we had a huge amount of space.

over 685 sq feet plus a very large balcony. there's a king size bed, a queen size pull out sofa as well as a murphy bed. the bedroom can be completely private as well as the doors close on all sides of the room. the couch was also very comfortable as well. we slept great!

speaking of sleep, when you are in the 1 bedroom suites, there's a "pillow talk" program where you can chose between numerous types of pillows during your trip. they have a pillow for everything. also, the bathroom amenities are upgraded and you also have 2 plush robes as well as comfy plush slippers awaiting you.

it was really nice to enjoy the breakfast offerings in the concierge lounge while sitting at our own dining room table. having a table to sit & share a meal together in our own private space was pretty nice. i felt it was a complete luxury honestly. the ship was really busy for most of the day but being able to start our day with such calm & peace was amazing. we opened the balcony and let the ocean air come in as we ate. pretty awesome in my book. there's also two entry ways to the balcony as well. one by the living room and the second by the dining room table.

the extra bathroom in the hall was a nice touch as my mom would sleep in late & emme & i would get ready for our morning using the hallway bathroom.

there's also 3 closets, one being a walk in. my mom & i packed way too much stuff so being able to hang our things & also being able to see our clothes easily was a definite perk in my opinion.

the 1 bedroom suite was larger than my first college apartment. in actuality, you are paying for the extra space so why not enjoy it? it really did feel like a vacation as we were never in each others way, we had plenty of space to move around in & with that, it was total relaxation. i figured we were going to be together for 7 straight nights & 8 days & i definitely didn't want to be in close quarters with a very energetic 3 year old & my mom. we probably would have ended up in many fights or at least gotten on each others nerves. ha!

this was a vacation of a lifetime for us & we really really enjoyed staying in the 1 bedroom suite. it was worth every penny! i would love to do it again soon but my bank account is telling me no!

i hope that helps. if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.
