The Disney Fantasy, the fourth ship in Disney’s fleet, is finally due for its first dry dock enhancements. The 18 day dry dock period will begin on April 29th, with the work being done in a shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas. We are excited to share a preview of what to expect when the first guests board the first post-upgrade cruise this May.
Imaginative New Spaces for Kids
In Disney’s Oceaneer Club, an immersive youth space onboard the Disney Fantasy, the new Star Wars: Command Post takes kids on a journey where they will train with heroes of the Star Wars saga and help with missions against the First Order. Here they will interact with holographic models at a one of-a-kind Star Wars holotable that projects 3-D images of the Millennium Falcon, Death Star and other famous Star Wars ships, meet members of the Resistance and learn to channel the Force.
In addition, at the all-new Marvel Super Hero Academy, kids will learn from real-life Super Heroes the heroic values of enlightenment, worthiness and loyalty. In this innovative space children can learn the ways of the mystic arts with Doctor Strange, who is making first-ever appearances onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship. Children will also interact with and open portals to different locales around the Marvel Universe, and immerse themselves in an exclusive gaming experience.
These new Star Wars and Marvel offerings onboard the Disney Fantasy are the newest addition to a growing list of exciting innovations that allow guests to interact with these universes throughout Disney experiences on land and at sea.
Tasty Treats to Delight the Entire Family
Families can enjoy the new Sweet on You ice cream shop, themed after the iconic Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, and designed with charming art details. Sweet on You will feature hand-crafted gelato and ice-cream, specialty sundaes, homemade chocolates, truffles and a large selection of candy for purchase, all just steps away from the family pool.
Luxury Shopping for Adults
For the first time, Disney Cruise Line will welcome the world’s premier jewelry and iconic American luxury brand, Tiffany & Co., with an exclusive store aboard the Disney Fantasy. Guests can indulge in timeless collections of jewelry and luxury accessories, including the effortlessly elegant Tiffany T collection and other glamorous pieces featuring renowned Tiffany & Co. diamonds.
These additions are part of an overall commitment by Disney Cruise Line to invest in their ships, helping to deliver incredible family vacation experiences for years to come. While making these enhancements to the Disney Fantasy, crews will also perform regularly scheduled and wide-ranging maintenance that keeps the fleet in tip-top shape, further demonstrating the unwavering commitment by Disney Cruise Line to continually elevating the guest experience.
The innovative new enhancements debut on Disney Fantasy sailings starting May 17, 2017 from Port Canaveral, Fla. This first sailing will visit the Bahamas on a 3-night voyage. Beginning on May 20, the ship will resume a regular sailing schedule that includes 7-night voyages alternating between the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
