I’m getting just a little excited! This time tomorrow, my family will be on board Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Fantasy, for a 3-night media preview cruise. It’s been a year since we sailed DCL for the first time, covering the Fantasy’s sister ship– the Disney Dream.
My agenda this week includes multiple ship tours, a day at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, and dinner at Palo, one of the two adult’s only dining options.
But, the big question is: What’s new on the Disney Fantasy?
While a few favorites have returned (ahem.. the AquaDuck!), the Disney Fantasy is a ship all her own.
Here’s a peek at some of the new spaces on the Disney Fantasy:
NEW! AquaLab Water Play Area – Families can frolic among pop jets, geysers and bubblers in this fun and fanciful 1,800-square-foot space near the entrance to the AquaDuck water coaster on deck 12.
NEW! Europa – Nightlife takes a European twist with Europa – an entertainment district of five, high-energy, sophisticated clubs and lounges inspired by the night spots of Italy, France, Ireland and London.
NEW! Muppets Adventure Game – “The Case of the Stolen Show” is an interactive adventure quest around the Disney Fantasy, where guests uncover clues via more than a dozen pieces of Enchanted Art and physical “evidence.”
NEW! “Animation Magic” at Animator’s Palate – Animator’s Palate on the Disney Fantasy brings the magic of Disney animation into the dining room with a new show called “Animation Magic.” The dinner show celebrates the magic of Disney animation and allows families to create and participate in a whole new way.
NEW! Two Broadway-style Stage Shows – “Wishes”, a 45-minute musical journey about three best friends who discover the secret to being a grown-up is staying connected to their inner child and “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular”, a fast-paced musical comedy where Aladdin, the “street rat” of Agrabah, meets a Genie who grants him three wishes, battles the evil Jafar and falls in love with Princess Jasmine.
NEW! Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique – Aspiring young princesses and pirates receive the full fairy tale treatment with pixie-dusted and piratical makeovers at this very special salon.
And, I’m pretty sure this is just the beginning of what the Disney Fantasy has in store for me! I’m going to try my best to post photos live on my Facebook & Twitter pages, but ship internet has been known to be a little iffy … if all else fails, I will have a ton to share when I get back!
