I have had several people ask me more about the cruise I went on in March, specifically about the ship itself, so I am going to do a 2-3 part series on the ship and with some more photos of Castaway Cay. I will only do one of these a week as to not overwhelm my running blog with Disney. I will also be writing more specific and detailed posts about different aspects of the ship for the blog my travel agency operates, and I will be sure to give you the links when they are up.
We got to the port on Friday morning, and there were several decorations announcing the Fantasy.
We walked right onto the ship, and stood in the beautiful lobby just taking it all in. I had been on the Disney Dream last summer, and while it’s lobby is all dark wood, the Fantasy had a more light, airy feel to it.
I could still smell the fresh paint! it was awesome. We headed up to Cabanas (which is the same on the Dream) and got lunch. I love this buffet, great food but also, it’s easy to navigate and you don’t have to stand in one long line which is nice.
After we ate, it was time to go to our rooms. I was in 7606, which is a Deluxe family stateroom with verandah.
The difference in this room and the regular staterooms with verandah’s is the murphy bed, extra chair, and space. In the regular rooms, right past the couch, is the wall and verandah. In these rooms, there is the extra space (see the brown murphy bed up against the wall, no pulled down?) Having the extra room was nice with three adults, oh, and the desk area is longer.
Another difference is in the bathroom. The tub was nice and big and rounded, lots of space!
the wall is rounded to accommodate the shower
other side of the split bath
lots of storage, TV with extendable arm, and refrigerator below
couch converts into a bed, murphy bed pulls down from the wall
Two chairs and a table on the verandah
something running related…yesterday I ran 4 miles in 39 minutes! I felt good and like I could have kept going at that pace. I really needed a good run, I haven’t had one in awhile. Especially after my hot and humid miserable 10 miler on Sunday. Tomorrow I will take yoga and lift. I also lifted tonight with Bobby. Getting back on track!
Also, only a few days left to vote for me in the Fitness Blogger awards! You can only vote for me one time, I would really appreciate it!

QOTD: If you could cruise, what line would you cruise on and where would you cruise too? I would love to do a Mediterranean cruise!
Ahhh it looks so nice! Can’t wait to go on it 🙂
Great job on your run!
Paige @ Running Around Normal says
Wow, your room is awesome! I’ve heard SO many good things about Disney Cruises.
Amy Lauren says
I really want to do a Med cruise too, but I’d like to do a Disney cruise (your posts kinda sell it, lol). I love all cruises pretty much, but it looks like Disney really took it to the next level with this ship. That stateroom looks great for a family too- much roomier bathroom than we had on Royal Caribbean or Carnival!
Tara Burner says
I’ve never ever been on cruise….
disney one looks fun!
Wow, that looks like such a great experience! I’ve never been on a cruise, but a Mediterranean one sounds fantastic!
Wow!! What a beautiful ship. It looks amazing!! I have only ever
cruised with Royal Caribbean. If I was not sailing with them I would love to try Disney. I have heard nothing but great things about Disney vacations 🙂
Madeline @ Food, Fitness, and Family says
I would LOVE to take a Disney Cruise at some point since I LOVE LOVE LOVE Disney 🙂
Wow!! I love the bathroom! I’ve only ever done a Royal Caribbean cruise before and I remember the bathroom being so small – your pictures make it look like its a decent size. I would love to do a cruise through the Greek isles or an Alaskan cruise. And a Disney cruise!

I’m convinced Husband and I need to go on a Disney cruise. Right now.
