Disclosure: I wrote this post after a complimentary media preview cruise about the Disney Fantasy. I’ve seen been on two 7-day cruises aboard the Disney Fantasy that were not discounted at all. All opinions are my own.
When I went on my first cruise, I was curious about the stateroom. I’d always heard that the rooms aboard a ship are tiny, which makes sense, given the nature of a cruise ship. However, this is not the case with the Disney Fantasy rooms. During the media preview cruise (as well as subsequent cruises with my family), 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. My family of four is able to fit in a Disney Fantasy stateroom with no problem – including all of our belongings for a 7-day journey.
Disney Fantasy Staterooms
The deluxe oceanview stateroom with verandah offers a pull-out couch, as well as a regular bed. If you are traveling with two children, they also have a bunk bed that comes down. The stateroom attendant will put this down every evening and put it back every morning, so it’s not in the way at all.
A small desk has several plugs for devices and room for lots of items. You can get two more outlets by unplugging the wave phone and the television. 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. We usually unpack all of our belongings, and store our luggage under the bed.
A few tips on the Disney Fantasy 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 hair dryer at home. There’s one in the desk drawer, and it has a special plug. A regular hair dryer won’t work.
- Room service of standard items is available 24-hours and is free. You can also receive delivery of premium items for a fee.
- 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, however, there are a few laundry rooms with irons on the ship.
- Spring for a room with a verandah if possible. You’ll enjoy having the extra space.
