How to Have the Perfect Weeklong Vacation on the Disney Fantasy

Hello Disney Parks Blog readers! As the blog’s newest author, I’m excited to give you the inside scoop on all things Disney Cruise Line. I’m also a huge fan of both Star Wars and Marvel, so stay tuned for posts from me about ways you can have intergalactic experiences or heroic adventures aboard a Disney ship.

In just a couple weeks, we’ll be debuting new spaces on the Disney Fantasy, including two immersive areas for kids – Star Wars: Command Post and Marvel Super Hero Academy. More to come on that, but for now, I want to share with you my tips for how to have the perfect weeklong vacation on the Disney Fantasy.

How to Have the Perfect Weeklong Vacation on the Disney Fantasy

  1. Choose the right itinerary for your family. With 7-night Caribbean cruises sailing from Florida all throughout the year, your options for a weeklong vacation on the Disney Fantasy are endless. The only tough decision you’ll need to make is whether to go on an Eastern or Western Caribbean cruise. I love both, so that choice is entirely up to you!

  1. When the ship’s in port, venture ashore. I borrowed that line from Arny, who is always sharing details about fun Port Adventures designed with families in mind. Immerse yourselves in Mayan culture in Cozumel, snorkel with stingrays in Grand Cayman and sail around the beautiful Virgin Islands from St. Thomas. Whatever you choose, make the most of your family’s time in these tropical destinations.

  1. Take time to recharge during your days at sea. There’s nothing more relaxing than soaking up the sun by the pool or getting pampered in our ocean-view spa. Your days at port will be packed with adventure, and enjoying downtime while the ship is cruising through the deep blue will give you the energy you need for your next day of excitement.

  1. Don’t miss the fun each night in the Walt Disney Theatre. Our shows and entertainment are the perfect opportunity for quality family time that everyone will enjoy. From Broadway-caliber musicals to magicians, comedians and 3D new-release films, you and the kids will consider this time together a highlight of the cruise.

  1. Give everyone time for themselves each day. The opportunities for family time on a Disney cruise are plenty, and so are the chances for “me time.” When your kids beg you to stay longer in the youth club so they can sling webs with Spider-Man or play Jedi mind tricks on Stormtroopers, don’t feel guilty about indulging in brunch at Palo or a Champagne tasting at Ooh La La.

Those of you who have cruised on the Disney Fantasy, what tips do you have to add?


  • Make sure to stay informed on what is happening on board by checking your Navigator, left in your room every night by your cabin afterward and/or the DCL Navigator app. I use both to stay informed.

    Also for a informative and fun tour of the ship make sure to do an Art of the Theme Ship Tour!

  • Adult activities in The Tube with Tisa! Hope she’s still on board the next time we sail in January 2018!

  • This looks amazing! We have only sailed once and it was on the Disney Magic out of NYC! It was a weekender so we never had the chance to see Casstaway Cay, which looks breathtaking!

  • Don’t forget your pirates costume!

    Counting the days (161) till our next Halloween on the High Seas Eastern Caribbean cruise.

  • We have been on two Disney Cruises and have booked our next cruise while at sea! The level of service is unparalleled! The attention to my children is heartwarming.

    It’s the perfect family vacation that allows for some couple time while they perfectly entertain your babies.

    Looking forward to our next sail aboard the Fantasy!!
