This was my fifth cruise - I have been on Carnival and Royal Caribbean prior to going on a Disney Cruise. The Disney Fantasy is a beautiful ship. From the Peacock styled atrium to the aquaduct. It is simply breathtaking.

If you sit at the second dining seating the Oceaneer Club's people pick you up right from dinner. There is the Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boutique also which is a favorite to many of the little girls that I saw onboard. There are character meet and greets all the time on this ship. The teen club called the vibe is really interesting. There's a game/movie thing where we all were Zombie's for a "movie" called Zombiefied.

I met a lot of cool people too. Every ship I have been on can not compare to a Disney Cruise. I have been on the Dream too and that's when my family fell in love with Disney Cruises. They really try to make it an enjoyable time for all ages. There is a lot of things for adults to do as well. There is the Europa District on deck four which has all these themed bars and there is comedy and entertainment usually in there after 9:00 pm. There is also an adult only pool which seems very quiet. So in all Disney doesn't just think of the younger children on board, they think of everyone from young to old.

The food..Where do I begin. I am generally a very picky eater. But I really enjoyed tasting new foods like lobster, steak, and mahi mahi. The dining experience on Disney is like no other. You get to rotate to different restaurants every night, and it is really cool. They have different themed dinners, like the first three nights it is Pacific at Animator's Palate, French at Royal Court, and I forgot what at the Enchanted Garden. Then there are Princess and Prince themed dining, Pirate, Captain's Gala - my favorite night, and See Ya Real Soon. I think that my chicken was the best that I had on a cruise ship. It was like Lemon Thyme Chicken and it was really good. But in all I think that Disney's food beat out the other cruise ship's food.

Disney staterooms are bigger than the other staterooms I have been in. On Royal Caribbean I felt like I was just in a extra large walk in closet. It was really small, and then on Carnival it was about the same as Royal Caribbean. In every stateroom there is a queen sized bed, a couch, a desk, and a little pedestal thing. It is like the size of a hotel room, so it is pretty comfortable for a cruise ship size.

There were so many things to do! Anywhere from character greeting, spa treatments, there's tons of fun games in the D-Lounge, and there is a midship detective agency. That is where you search around the ship for who stole the muppet's props, paintings, or puppies. It is really fun. :)

Don't miss the Rainforest in San Juan! It is really something to see. Also St Thomas does not have much to do, so I would do an excursion. We didn't go on a cruise ship excursion but we did go on one of the island's excursions - like the people who ask if you want to go somewhere. It isn't as pricey as the cruise line's prices and it's practically the same thing. It is like $25 per person for 2 1/2 hours around the island and seeing things you normally wouldn't - including getting a picture with a donkey.
