The Fantasy has the Muppet Adventure as listed in the chart.

The Dream has the Mid-ship Detective Agency (didn't see it on the chart).

Thanks, BTW...the chart is a good tool for comparison.

Love the comparison chart - thanks!

A few things I would add/change:

As MJ said, the Dream has the Midship Detective Agency which is the equivalent for the Muppet Adventure game.

For the clubs - La Piazza is equivalent to Dream's District Lounge and Ooh La La is equivalent to Dream's Pink.

Have we gotten any confirmation yet on O'Gill's? Is it located where 687 is on the Dream? Is it really 18 and over all day?!

I loved the decor on the Fantasy, the lighter colored wood in the lobby/atrium and peacock decor are just beautiful.

Sattelite falls in the adult area was "eh" they made such a big deal out of it before the cruise and I was underwhelmed.

Aqua lab is cool though, as well as the entertainment district changes.

loved teh addition of BBB and how it turned into pirate league for pirate night (changed over at 3:00 pm) way cool.

Goofy's Sports Deck

According to the videos I saw on www.insidethemagic.net, I think there are some differences in Goofy's Sport Deck.
The basketball/volleyball court is bigger in the Fantasy.
From what I see in the videos, I think that miniature golf course has a different distribution. And maybe in the back there is less empty space.
I do not know what it can be, but I see that there is less space between one of the golf course and the wall on the back of that deck.

I do want to get nitpicky, so thanks for that correction.

Got it.

I am sure I killed some of the spellings
Actually, the area on the Fantasy is called Europa. La Piazza is one of the clubs. As noted below the corresponding club ont he Dream is the District Lounge.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Crush show was replaced by the new show.

I took guesses on those club comparisons, since reference material I was using wasn't clear on that, so thanks for that.

The reviews I've read from people on the shakedown cruises indicate that the Crush show is still in AP in addition to the new show.

Ok, so really no structural stuff has changed. I was hoping they would have...

Changed the aft elevator
Made more of the queen beds covnvert into twins
Put cubbies near the pools for shoes and towels
Made the pools bigger, or added a pool.
Do something to alieviate the massive groups of poeple waiting to get on the midship elevators.

Basically things that many of us complained about having sailed the Dream.

Well they kind of added 2 new pools, but they're only for adults and they're very small.

Is the new small splash pool on deck 13 for adults only? I thought I read it would be available for family use?

They were saying in the beginning that it would be for families, but MJ said she heard that it was changed to adults only.
