Final Thoughts

Overall, this cruise get a 10 out of 10 for us. I didn’t mention it in the report, but we saw lots of characters and never really waited more than 15 minutes to have a photo taken. We had lots of great photos so we purchased the package of all of them on disc. I thought it was worth it. I did wish we would have made time to see a movie on board. They had some good ones: Saving Mr. Banks, Frozen, Thor, etc. I’m sure the ship was full, and while it felt crowded at times, overall it wasn’t overwhelming. Customer service was impeccable. Everyone we encountered was friendly and attentive, from the crew cleaning the deck to the captain. We felt very welcome on their ship. As I mentioned before, the only disappointment was the food. It wasn’t bad at all, just not memorable.

Disney does a great job and we can’t wait to go back. Happy to answer any questions!

The Christmas Eve towel animal was adorable!

We got the same box of chocolates on our NYE cruise, but ours had Happy New Year on the lid.

Thanks for taking the time to post about your cruise, it sounds like it was a great time. I have to say that the 4 night NYE cruise that we did, probably had about the worst food that we've had on our last few cruises. I'm not sure if it was because they were at capacity or some other reason.

Thanks for your report!!

We are Christmas cruising on the Fantasy this year and were looking for reports since we are first time cruisers. Your report answered all of our questions.

Glad you had a great time.
