Those considering a Disney Fantasy Cruise might be interested in learning what makes this cruise ship so amazing. Filled with many activities for children and adults, those taking a cruise on the Fantasy will enjoy everything this ship has to offer.
Tour of Disney Fantasy (Cruise Review)
The Disney Fantasy is the fourth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet and is like a floating Disney park, filled with great experiences your entire family will enjoy. If you are planning a Disney Fantasy Cruise here are the things you can look forward to:
The Disney Fantasy is designed in an Art Nouveau-style with a notable peacock flourish both on the ceiling and on the floor. The focal point of the atrium is the massive stained-glass chandelier.
Around the atrium lobby and throughout the Disney Fantasy you will find Enchanted Art. These magical art pieces will come alive as you look at them.
Disney Fantasy Stateroom
One thing that sets the Disney Fantasy apart from the older Disney ships is that 88% of the staterooms are outside rooms and most have a verandah. This means that while more expensive than interior rooms, these outside rooms are also easier to reserve.
If you don’t get to stay in a verandah room, not to worry. The interior rooms are pretty special too. Each one has a magical port hole that changes during the time of your cruise.
You never know who or what you may see! It is a real treat when you get to see Disney characters appear and kids love the unexpected fun!
No matter which type of Disney Cruise stateroom you stay in, all Disney Fantasy Staterooms feature a spit bath and come with plenty of closet and storage space.
Disney Fantasy Pool Deck
If pool time is what you need, the Disney Fantasy offers many different options. You will find Mickey’s Pool that gives the kids an area to get wet while parents sit nearby, Donald’s Pool which is the main pool featuring a big movie screen and a small wading pool with a fountain with plenty of shady spots to sit.. There is even a pool that is strictly for adults!The main feature attraction on the Disney Fantasy is the AquaDuck Watercoaster. This waterslide takes you on a ride around the ship where you will even go over the ocean for a brief period of time!
Younger kids will enjoy splashing in the AquaLab—a water play area featuring pop jets, geysers and bubblers.
Not only will you find pools, you will also find hot tubs to relax in (when they aren’t filled with kids) and plenty of places to grab food on the go when you want to eat poolside.
Guests of all ages will enjoy watching movies poolside while they relax in the sun (or the shade).
Pool towels are provided so no need to pack these and there is a full bar staff at your convenience to bring you mixed beverages as you relax.

Disney’s Oceaneer Lab is a nautical wonderland where children ages 3 to 12 can choose their own fun. They can spend time doing arts and crafts, gaming or taking part in some of the fun group activities.
