Disney Fantasy Now In Dry-Dock

Yesterday, April 29th, the Disney Fantasy left Port Canaveral and headed to Freeport, Bahamas for an 18 night dry dock.  This is the Fantasy's first dry dock, and they are changing quite a few things.  Let's take a look!

1.  Sweet on You

Sweet on You is a specialty ice cream shop that will probably take over the Arr-Cade.  It will have a wider selection of flavors than Eye-Scream, but it will probably be at an extra cost.  Sweet on You will have ice cream, gelato, toppings, candy, and much more!

2.  Oceaneer Club

The Oceaneer Club, the kids-only area, will also get some cool new areas.  Replacing the Explorer Pod comes the Star Wars Command Post, similar to the Dream's Millennium Falcon.  It will have Star Wars themed activities, and maybe some character visits.  Since the Fantasy has Star Wars Days at Sea, I think there will be some extra-special activities here.  With the new movie, Star Wars Episode VIII coming later this year, this is sure to be a popular spot.  Another new addition to the Oceaneer Club is the Marvel Super Hero Academy.  Here, kids will learn about how to be a hero from none other than the heroes themselves!  There will also be immersive games and exciting Marvel activities.

3.  Tiffany & Co.
For the first time on any Disney Cruise ship...  A Non-Disney Store!  Tiffany & Co. will be where the Vista Gallery was (The Vista Gallery will be moved to Deck 2).  Guests will now be able to purchase fancy jewelry onboard.  I'm guessing they'll at least have something with Mickey or Minnie on it.
The Dry Dock will be finished by May 17th, with the first sailing a 3-Night cruise with 2 stops at Castaway Cay.  After the renovation, the Fantasy will be better than ever.  It looks like a good summer for the Disney Fantasy!


  1. That's a lot of good information! I bet I know someone who will want go on a future cruise on the Fantasy to visit the Tiffany's!

    What is your favorite enhancement planned for this dry dock?

  2. Wow! I was just about to say... I bet I know someone who will get to pick out a little something at the Tiffany's on board! :)
