That's how I thought the kids would vote! I know my DH and I don't care as long as we are on DCL! Thanks for polling the kiddos!

I've never been on the Dream, and I'm starting to doubt I ever will because I just hate the idea of such a short cruise, but never say never....
My son wants to try the Aqua Lab on the Fantasy. He loved the Aqua Duck and the MSDA also. I'm afraid he would really miss them on the Wonder and Magic given his age. Thanks for your input!

We will never go back to the classics after sailing the Fantasy. No comparison.

My DH and I loved both of them, but are looking to change itineraries, as our upcoming cruise will be third time we have sailed to the Bahama's. And I would like to do a 7 night. If we choose the Magic or Wonder after sailing the Dream, I wonder if he will be disappointed. We would like to try the Fantasy as well. Anyone have any relatable experiences to share? TIA
We've sailed the Dream, Fantasy & Magic. My 8 year-old son ranks the ships:

1 - Fantasy
2 - Dream
3 - Magic

He liked all three ships, but picked the Dream-class ships primarily because of the Aqua Duck (Dream & Fantasy) & Aqua Lab (Fantasy only)

My 12-year-old daughter was a little less commital. She likes all 3 ships and actually said she liked Edge on the Magic more than on the Dream or Fantasy. She raves about the Aqua Duck as well. She wasn't all that impressed with the Aqua Lab though.

Either way, all of the ships are great.
