I’m back from the Magical Media Preview aboard the brand-new Disney Fantasy, and will have a series of posts about the ship and the cruise. First up is a review of the staterooms.
This is my first cruise, but I’ve always heard that the rooms aboard a ship are tiny. This is not the case with the Disney Fantasy. I had a deluxe oceanview stateroom with verandah, and was impressed with the size. While it was certainly smaller than a standard hotel room, it definitely had enough space for families of 3-4.
The room offers a pull-out couch, as well as a regular bed. A small desk has several plugs for devices and room for lots of items. The double closet and numerous drawers will easily hold all of your clothes for the week, and storage is also available in the trunk/coffee table and under the bed.
A few tips on the staterooms:
- The lights and TV do not work if you don’t place your Key to the World in the slot by the door.
- Leave your personal hairdryer at home. There’s one in the desk drawer, and it has a special plug. A regular hairdryer won’t work.
- Room service of standard items is available 24-hours and is free.
- The doors are magnetic – bring magnetic hooks from home to hang up items vertically (I used one for my hanging toiletry bag).
- There’s no iron in the room.
- Spring for a room with a verandah if possible.
