The Fantasy 3D Review


The first and last cruise that Pam and I ever took was for our honeymoon over eight years ago. It was The Grandeur of the Seas. Even back then, it wasn’t the biggest ship in the fleet, but it really was the ultimate vacation for a newly married couple looking to get away from it all.

The Disney FantasyLast month, the MTBS team was invited to take a three night “preview” cruise on Disney’s new Fantasy cruise ship. Fourteen decks high, this behemoth of a ship features over six restaurants, a shopping mall, a Dolby 3D movie theater, live shows, and more. How could we say no?

While we didn’t get to see everything we wanted to, I’m hoping our 3D coverage will give a taste of what the Disney Fantasy has to offer.


The Room

A rule of thumb with cruising is that if you’re single, you can save some money by getting an inside room without a window or balcony. You can easily enjoy the ocean on the deck, and you are going to be super busy exploring the ship so much, you will only be using the room for sleep anyway!

The VerandaHowever, if you have a family and need something to do while the kids are sleeping…a veranda can’t hurt. Disney spoiled us rotten with our deluxe room. It was fully outfitted with a crib, a queen sized bed, a dresser with desk space, a closet, and a partitioned bathroom that had two sinks, a tub/shower mix, and everything you really need to get through your day. Don’t get excited about the tub, though! It’s not at all useful for adults (I tried!), and is really intended for small children.

The Bed!The power outlets support international standards, but with all our electronics, there weren’t enough to go around. If you are a gadget guy like me, bring a power bar!

Disney Fantasy Cabin HallwayThere is Internet access in the room, but I wouldn’t stake my business on it. I had this fantasy of sharing daily updates, but I was really just grateful to get my emails. I know – it’s crazy to complain about getting Internet access in the middle of the ocean – I’m just setting your expectations. Also, while Internet was free for media, it is something you will likely have to pay for when you cruise for real.
