Shows on the Fantasy

Could someone please tell me what night the different shows are on the Fantasy? I'm trying to figure out which ones we can afford to skip and I know I don't want to miss any of the main Disney shows - but the cabaret acts I don't mind missing as much.

I wouldn't skip any of the major stage shows on the Fantasy, they are really my favorite selection of all four ships. Aladdin is probably my favorite of them all. If you go to this link it's noted under each show which ship they are on.

If you're going to skip some, skip the other acts. We're rarely impressed by them. You won't know who the "other" entertainment is until you board.

I'm aware of the shows on the Fantasy, my question is which night will they play? I like to plan my days out well ahead of time being a die hard planner at the best of times.

And I totally agree with you when it comes to what to see and what not to -I just need to know which nights to plan not to.

I've got some old navigators for the 7 night Eastern Caribbean and according to it:

Night 1: A Fantasy Come True
Night 2: Aladdin
Night 3: Wishes
Night 4: N\A
Night 5: Ricky Kalmon - Hypnosis Show
Night 6: Believe
Night 7: An Unforgettable Journey

I imagine that the hypnosis show is regularly cycled out with other entertainers so just assume that is 'Generic Entertainment Night'

And of course as this is an old navigator it's not guaranteed, so as they say, your mileage may vary...

Sorry, I obviously mis-read your question! Take any information you are given with a grain of salt, they are subject to change.

Prefer to plan myself, but when it comes to things on the Navigator I just go with the flow. It makes me more anxious if things "were" one way and "now" are another in my brain. I plan for the next day when the Navigator hits my stateroom that night.

100% This.

If the historical information helps then great, but there's just no way to be sure that things will stay the same. I mean, they'll change things mid cruise if it fits operational needs and they haven't sent out the Navigators yet.

The only thing I'll try and plan for is Formal & Semi-Formal night which is when I'll try and get PALO & Remy; because, well, getting dressed up twice on a cruise is enough, eh?

It's not the dressing up I don't like, it's the dry cleaning bills!

Do your dry cleaning on the ship! $8 for a gown - I just paid $20 locally and they didn't even do a great job!

We don't have many dresses that my front loading washer/dryer can't handle on a hand wash setting. It did all 14 of mine when we got home last month. Hung them up to air dry. My partner sent her one silk one to be done on the ship before we left. It'll be ready to wear next time.

I totally get this - my wife is like that =)
Though she deals with it by refusing to plan at all and just plays everything by ear.

I like to have a plan then readjust as needed on the fly - I'm not good at making order out of chaos on the fly. So too many options and no plan kind of flips me out:
