The Fantasy was our first cruise in 2012. Have been on the other 3 since, including the Magic twice since it has been reimagined. I loved the new Magic, but the Fantasy is probably still my favorite. I loved Animator's Palate and Midship Detective Agency. We have two cruises booked on the Fantasy this year if that tells anything. :-)

We loved the Fantasy!! We've been on a couple other lines but the Fantasy was our first DCL cruise. We enjoyed it so much so that we have another cruise booked for November, we couldn't even bring ourselves to go on another line.

Loved the Fantasy on our two cruises on it.

Satellite Falls is amazing for the adults only area.

It's a beautiful ship.

Our first DC was last October on the Fantasy and we booked onboard. We sail the Fantasy again last week in September 2014.

We LOVED it! We were on a almost sold out cruise - and yes - the deck could get crowded, but not enough that we did not enjoy ourself. Our service in the MDR was wonderful and my 7 year old loved the lab and mid ship detective.

My favorite thing .... we had late dining. So every evening for about 2 hours, we had the pool deck and the Aquaduck to ourself. We swam, watched a movie on tunnel vision and could ride the Aquaduck over and over. Plus - that dusk time of day was just beautiful.

There are tons and tons of things to do. - but these evenings that were so relaxed were my favorite part.

We like O'Gills which was initially unique to the Fantasy, but now also on the Magic. Remy, Cove Cafe and the big circle loungers by the adult pool are lovely. The atrium is my favorite of the four. Compared with the Dream, I like the longer cruise/more laid back atmosphere - not tangible but definitely present. Odds are that you will have a fantastic time

Deck 13 Forward - Satellite Falls. We found it on the last :sad2 day of our Fantasy Cruise.

You should take the ships tour that's offered on embarkation day. Be sure to check out the men's and women's bathrooms in the Europa District - They are amazing.

Those bathrooms are works of art LOL. I don't think I have ever been "Wowed" by a bathroom before.

We loved the Fantasy. We didn't experience any vibrations and had great service in the dining rooms.

Everything.

The service is always so on point, everyone is so eager to please and you really feel great.

My favorite time of day is that time in between shows and dinners, when the atrium is full of laughter and characters and families. That's what it's all about. Not about the do, do, do. Take the time to relax and take it all in. It truly is magical.

That's the adult club area and the best one in Disney's fleet as far as I'm concerned.
