Hi All! We just had our dummy date change to this, our actual vacation date on the Fantasy for next summer. We are so excited to sail on the Fantasy again. Last year we tried an aft stateroom on deck six and loved it, so this time we asked for 8188, which we've seen has an absolutely HUGE verandah and, luckily, we got it. It's me, DH, and DS who will be 12 at the time of the cruise. Anyone else onboard with us?

Post your information here, and we'll keep a list of our shipmates here in the first post.
1. bobbi565 - Bobbi (50), DH Mike (51), and DS Joel (12)
2. SonyaShay - Sonya (30), DH Billy (33), and DD Kaitlin (7)
3. Tanya (40), DH Scooter (45), and DD Tinsley (8)
4. Paragd911 - Mark, DW Joy, DD Marissa (18), and DS Ryan (16)
5. Cinderbrella1 - Sue, DH Rob, DD Laura (17), DD Rebecca (15), DS Daniel (13), DS John (13)
6. Jself721 - Jennifer, DH Ken, DD Ashton (12), DS Cole (8), DA Cathy, DU Sam
7. gene2geno - Joan and DH Gene
8. skelly6090 - skelly6090, DD, DGD, DGD, DGS (8), DGGD (5), DGGD (7)
9. juliep - Julie, DH Rich, DD (13), DD (13), and DS (11)
10. khomer504 - Karen, DH Chris, DD Abby (13), DS Andy (9)
11. rebeccam31- Rebecca (46), DH Ed (53), DD Sam (13)

Welcome aboard! Was your previous cruise with Disney? We've cruised with Disney three times before and once with Norwegian. We liked Norwegian, but it couldn't compare with the Disney magic! If you have any questions about the Fantasy or this itinerary, I can definitely share my experiences. We did the Western on the Magic a few years ago (I've linked my trippie in my signature) except with Key West instead of Falmouth, Jamaica.

yes our cruise was on the Dream in Sept/Oct 2012 when our daughter was 4. We had so much fun but once I got home and relived the days by looking over the navigators I realized we didn't do most of the activities on the ship. I don't even think we can do everything on a 7 day but we will try

I looked through both of your trip reports yesterday afternoon while I was supposed to be working

Welcome aboard! We're super excited here, too! This is our second cruise on the Fantasy too, but we did the Western on the Magic in 2008. That itinerary included Key West and not Jamaica, and we fell in love with Grand Cayman. Can't wait to go back there again.
