The newest of Disney’s four ships, Disney Fantasy features the most bells and whistles of them all. Like the other ships in Disney’s fleet, the design of the Fantasy is an homage to the glamour of ocean liners of the 1930s, with elegant Art Nouveau architectural details. Staterooms are designed with families in mind (split bathrooms with tubs are a big bonus), the dining staff anticipates your clan’s every desire, and nobody nails G-rated entertainment like Disney.

What We Love

High-Quality Cruising: While there are plenty of opportunities to meet your favorite characters on board, Disney ships aren’t floating theme parks. The Fantasy is a class act. 

Animator’s Palate: Cutting-edge technology meets artistic genius during the “Animation Magic” dinner show at this signature restaurant, where passengers can sketch their own characters on place mats and then see their drawings come to life on the walls. 

Grown-up appeal: Sure, Disney loves kids, but adults get plenty of their own spaces, too. Check out the spa and fitness area, adult pool area, two premium restaurants, and the chic Europa nightclub district.

Best Known For

Incredible Kids Clubs: From babies to teens, children can participate in engaging, age-appropriate fun all day and well into the night in the supervised clubs. The roster of activities blends hip technology, Disney branding, creative play, and elements of the Marvel and Star Wars franchises. 

Lots of Fun on the Pool Deck: Standout features include AquaDuck, a two-person water coaster, and AquaLab, an interactive splash area for little kids that’s themed to Donald Duck’s mischievous nephews.

Who It's Best For

Families of all shapes and sizes. Bring your big kids, little kids, nuclear families, and reunions. Disney meets the needs of families big and small.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Don’t Wait for a Bargain: Disney is a premium cruise line with fares to match and, alas, flash sales and discounts aren’t in the cards. Time your trip for shoulder season for a price dip.

Pools Are Small and Crowded: Your best chance to enjoy the two family pools in relative peace is on port days.
