Ready to Live a Disney Fantasy?
On March 31st, Disney's latest cruise ship, the Disney Fantasy is set to make her maiden voyage, joining her sister ship, Disney Dream, who made her debut in January of 2011. These two exciting ships are the first in over a decade to join the Disney Cruise Line. Although both new ships offer that special magic that no one else but Disney can duplicate, Disney's Fantasy is not identical to Dream. Both ships have similarities, but Fantasy has a personality all her own, with some exciting features not found on Dream.
At first glance, Fantasy looks very much like the Dream, with the same number of decks, an astounding 14, to be exact, and capacity for a maximum of 4,000 passengers. Interior design is different, with Dream having an art deco touch and Fantasy offering a softer art nouveau design.
The atrium will astound all who board, with a sweeping grand staircase, towering fluted columns, a grand piano and exquisite marble floors. There is also a bronze statue of Mademoiselle Minnie Mouse.
Kids and families are always at the forefront of anything connected with Disney, and Fantasy does not disappoint when it comes to entertainment and activities for all ages. Along with a water coaster and pools comparable to what Dream has to offer, Fantasy also has Aqua Lab, an 1,800 sq ft water play area. Only on Fantasy will you find Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where little girls can be "made over" as their favorite Disney princess. In addition, Pirate Party Nights offers buccaneers of all ages a chance to be transformed into the pirate of their choice. Prices vary for makeover packages. A couple of interactive activities are also unique to Fantasy. Muppets Adventure Game sends passengers all over the ship for clues. And for those who enjoy creativity, each diner in the Royal Court restaurant will be given an opportunity to design their own animated character which will be displayed on a screen at the end of the dinner show.Continued on the next page
