    Hi There!
    We have done a 1 week on the Fantasy, and we have our 3rd cruise on the Magic coming up in October. I was wondering what is everyone's favourite ship and why?
    Thanks!:cool1:

    Of the new ships I love the Fantasy over the Dream. I love the little improvements they made in the adult areas.

    But, my favorite ship is the Magic. I haven't sailed on her since her refab but I'll be able to check it out in September!! I just love the more intimate atmosphere on the original ships. It may not have all the bells and whistles of the newer ships but still she feels more like home! Although since I always cruise inside cabins - I do like the addition of the virtual portholes!

    We have been on all four, but my favorite is the Fantasy. I don't mind the crowds as we usual travel with all adults.

    I love the 7 day cruises and I think there is much more to do on the bigger ships.

    I have been on the Magic, Wonder and Fantasy and they all have special meaning to me but my absolute favorite from those three would be the Fantasy. I really like all the amenities, including the design of the staterooms, layout of the ship, dinning rooms and things to do around the ship.

    I have been on all 4, and my favorite was the pre dry dock Magic. Have not been on her since updated. It has been 7 years since we have sailed on the Wonder. We have 2 cruises this year on the Wonder, one a 15 nighter, so I hope it will be our new favorite. :goodvibes.

    We love The Magic the most.
    I have to say though the adult area on The Fantasy is beyond amazing.
    Can't wait to spend another week relaxing up there. I don't have any desire to get off the ship at the ports.

    The one I am on at the time! Each ship has it pros and cons, so I really choose by itinerary and cost. That being said, I may like the Wonder best because it was our first, and I like the service the best on the Wonder. The Fantasy and the Magic have a service level just below the Wonder. The Fantasy has the bells and whistles, the Magic has the cool itineraries. The Dream is fine for a quick getaway.

    The Wonder far and away is our favorite. Agree with PP that the service is best on the Wonder and have to add it feels most like you belong. Dream was too big and crowded for us, we are just as busy or entertained on the Wonder as the Dream. The Magic was our 2nd favorite and we spent many days on her in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Will be boarding the Re-imagined Magic in Venice this July and expect we will like her just as much as before.

    I have not yet been on the Fantasy but of the three that I have been on, I would have to say The Wonder. The Dream felt too big for me; I like the homey feel of The Magic and The Wonder better. I like The Wonder a bit better than the Magic only because of The Outlook!

    Taking cruise #5 on The Wonder in 10 days!

    Just came off the fantasy and compared to wonder the service was lacking -- especially in the dining room.... Our head server was useless and awkward! We have food allergies so we were really not impressed. The wonder did a GREAT job last year. We will be returning to the wonder next February.

    TLDR: the wonder has better service than fantasy. Fantasy is a nicer ship, but I enjoyed the wonder more.

    I have been on all 4, and enjoy the fantasy the most. I miss "pink" on the dream though.

    My favorites in order: 1. Fantasy 2. Wonder 3. Dream 4. Magic
    DH's are the same, except he reverses the Fantasy and the Wonder. We have cruised the Wonder many times because we just love the ship, and have had the BEST service of all four ships, time and time again.

    I loved the beauty of the Fantasy, Palo/Remy, Satellite Falls, and having the virtual porthole. I really enjoy the Midship Detective Agency, the artwork, and the awesome shops. Although my favorite hangout ever is Cadillac Lounge on the Wonder!

    The Wonder. She was my first ship and none of the others can compare to the service and staff on that ship! After that, it would go Fantasy, Magic, Dream.
