Just back from The Fantasy

We just returned today from our 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Fantasy. What a beautiful ship! We had a great time even though the weather was not always the greatest. There is just so many things to do and enjoyed many of them.
We had dinner and brunch at Palo and both were amazing.
If you have any questions I would be happy to try and answer them.

Can you share your dining rotation? There was some talk that the rotations were to change sometime around March, so that we couldn't count on the rotations that were previously posted in late 2012.

Thanks!

We just got back too! A few windy days but nothing too bad. Gorgeous weather in all three ports mostly. Still think the Dream and Fantasy are too big compared to the Classics.

Our rotation was ERAERAE.

And so was ours. Tired out after travel day however. Youngest DD (4) is still not happy we had to leave the ship.

It was Capt. Marco's last cruise before vacation. Overheard one of the Palo servers saying there are a bunch of them heading off for vacation prior to joining the Magic for the Med cruises (DCL wanted to make sure there were more Spanish/Italian members on the ship).

Sawwas the Carnival Dream last Saturday leaving Port Canaveral and again in St. Thomas. Made a couple of jokes at dinner that night regarding their 'issues'. Whoops. May have jinxed them.

Just curious, How was your St Thomas day as far as number of people? Was the Oasis of the Seas and the Carnival Dream both there that day?

Thanks!!

I like this rotation because we like AP, it was nice having AP on pirate night because of the theming. One can make an argument that having RC on formal night is ideal in which case you want it on the second night.

When we docked at St Thomas we were one of only three ships in port and did not have to tender. We were told when there are many ships in port, DCL doesn't get to dock and has to tender guests in. I can't imagine how crowded it gets when 8-9 ships are in at the same time.

There are two docking areas in St. Thomas. Oasis and the MSC ship were over at the other one (Crown Bay???). From the top of the Fantasy you could see the top of Oasis. Kind of cool actually. Took a picture of it but haven't yet started to go through any of them to see what worked.
