Our 2nd DCL cruise on the Fantasy. We had booked second seating, had it confirmed by Disney. Arrived at port to find out Disney put us in first seating. Bizarre. There's A huge wait list for 1st seating so I have no idea how we ended up getting 1st seating when we asked for 2nd. Got it changed but lost out on an excellent seating assignment for a dungeon in the back all week. We weren't pleased. 2 medical emergencies on board. One in the middle of the night that required a medivac out in the lifeboat and another on the final sea day day that required us to turn the boat around and sail back to Grand Turk. Still managed to get to castaway on time. Royal Tea was a highlight. I brought my son and he got spoiled rotten. Pricey but worth every penny. I highly recommend it. For boys they were giving out Duffy bears, swords, shields, autograph books, pens, keychains, collectors pins (4 in total), 5 minute interaction with each princess, commemorative photo in a frame. The tea is a disney production with music, singing, dancing, etc and limited to a small #of kids. A child got stuck on the aquaduck when we were in line. They had to walk up from the bottom to rescue her. Weather was good. Water in st. Maarten and Castaway was fine. Food much better this year than last. They had pretzels on the last sea day. Character experiences much better run this year. Military precision to get as many kids through as possible. Saw a few almost blow outs between parents though. Some people were taking up big groups to get photos and doing an individual photo of everyone plus a large group one plus several combinations of people in their party. Given the appearances were for only 15 minutes the crowds were not pleased when the line got cut off to accommodate this. Kids crying that they wouldn't get to see Cinderella, parents mad they waited so long only to get cut off, etc. oh my.
