Tracking Captain Hook

My kids (DS 4 and DD 2) are both in love with Captain Hook. Will he be on board the Fantasy?

I can't wait to tell my kids that they will be able to meet Captain Hook on our cruise.....but I don't want them to be crushed if we can't find him.

Can anyone confirm that Captain Hook sails on the Fantasy and where we might be able to locate him?

He is on the fantasy with mr. Smee. It varies where he is located but usually he makes an appearance in the atrium and castaway cay. He is pretty popular so he makes several appearances.

I have not sailed on the Fantasy, however, on the Dream the ONLY time we saw Captain Hook was during the pirate party. We never saw him for a photo op or meet and greet. It may vary from sailing to sailing or ship to ship. But I would not plan on meeting him that way your children will not be crushed if it doesn't happen. But maybe it will.

The number of character interactions on the 3/4 night cruises is minimal compared to those on the 7+ night cruises. Hook always makes an appearance for pictures on pirate night. Sometimes it is alone, or with Wendy or Mr. Smee. We have seen him out on other nights as well. Call the PALS line each night to get the exact schedule for the next day. It will list the times each character will be out and their location. Has always helped me get the kids to see all of the characters they want to see.

Your navigator will have a schedule of all character meet times with location

I have a great pic of Hook with my son in front of the Post Office on CC

I'm writing the tip about calling him Codfish down

My kids weren' really looking for him so that may be why we never found him. We did see him during the pirate party but he wasn't doing photos at that time. We saw tons of characters at the see ya real soon party but he was not among them. Good to know about the PALS line. Thanks.

We were on the Dream last week and saw Hook about 2:30 next to the ship while at Castaway Cay.

Yes he is on the Fantasy and will make several appearances including Pirate night, the times will vary, most of photo opportunities are in the atrium on decks 3 and 4. He may make an appearance on Castaway Cay, your Navigators will list the times and locations. One afternoon Captain Hook, Smee, and Peter Pan were all in the atrium for photos, it was quiet so Peter Pan was throwing paper wads at Captain Hook and I got to talk to Peter Pan. I ALWAYS look for Captain Hook and Peter Pan since my name is Wendy.
