For the reasons you mentioned we just went to Great Bay Beach which is across the bay from where the Fantasy will dock. You can take a quick water taxi over to the beach. Phillipsburgh is right behind the beach if you wish to go shopping afterwards.
Thanks for the info and pic of the beach...I want to be there now!! That's a cool photo of the plane. I've read about it and thought the experience would be fun until I read you need to close your eyes unless you want a nice gravel scrub for your eyes.

We will do a FE roll call in a few months after more DISsers join the thread.
i'm not sure if I called it the right thing........when the dates open, my TA will contact me and hopefully book the first day it opens?

The dates for the Fantasy and Dream were anounced two weeks ago and DCL allowed booking the same day. Therefore if you are waiting to book this cruise please call your TA. We booked and put a deposit down on this cruise two weeks ago.

The scary thing is I was just there 3 weeks ago. I want to go back now. Here is a video from another DISser at Maho beach. DUCK

Thanks for sharing the updated photo of the Fantasy. It's fun keeping up with her. Thanks also for updaing the number of weeks...my countdown was in days and had to quit looking as it seemed sooo far way. 84 weeks seems more managable.

I agree that 84 weeks sounds a whole better than 587 days. Well do day countdowns when we get less than a 100 to go.
Hopefully they float out the Fantasy soon. The maiden voyage is at the end of March which is only 5 months away. I hope the improvements to the pools are better than the Dream. We really like the way the Magic/Wonder adult pool configuration is so we'll see.

Yes we are officially onboard!!

We loved the Dream when we sailed and really felt the positives outweighed anything else....can't wait to sail the Fantasy!!
