Disney set its foot in the cruise industry in 1998 with their flagship cruise liner, the Disney Magic. Now the newest addition to their fleet of luxury and family friendly vacation vessels, the Disney Fantasy, seeks to break its way onto the scene by offering a unique blend of quality vacation options for kids and parents alike.
With three prior cruise liners from which to draw inspiration, Disney has changed the game with their latest edition to the cruise community, creating a veritable theme park ready to take on the high seas.

The “designed with families in mind” décor and layout gives guests an opportunity to fully utilize every inch of the ship's decadent amenities.Each of the rooms boasts top of the line décor that's less like a cruise ship and more in line with a five star hotel.
