Disney Cruise Line’s Fantasy… a review of deck 5

Starting Aft on deck 5, you will see The Oceaneer Lab. Here there are a TON of things for kids to do- arts and crafts, video games, board games, and make new friends. This is all supervised by Disney’s staff- which makes everything fun and safe. Kids are not allowed in or out without being signed in and out by their parents and they are also required to use a pretty cool hand washing machine once they enter.

A bit further down you will come across the Oceaneer Club. Here is were the younger kids can play in The Monster’s Inc Laugh Factory, A sub from Finding Nemo, Tink’s garden, and Andy’s room! The Club and the Lab are connected thought their kitchens/lab areas so siblings can play with each other no matter their age level.

For children 3 months old- 3 years old, parents can make reservations in It’s A Small World Nursery. Here they have trained staff to feed and care for your children while you enjoy the adult areas of the ship.

Once you get midship, over the atrium… take a little time to enjoy the view….

On the Port side of the midship atrium area on deck 5 you will find the Port Adventures desk. Here you can book excusions for when you are in port and cancel if need be as well.

On the opposite side you will find one of the newest features on the Fantasy, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. This is where your little princess aged 3-13 can be made over by their very  own Fairy Godmother-in-training in this very special salon complete with a crown, wand and shoes that are also available.

The Boutique offers:

Coach: choice of one hairstyle, shimmering makeup, face gem, cinch sack, and princess sash. Cost: $54.95

Crown: all elements of Coach PLUS nail polish. Cost: $59.95

Castle: all elements of Crown PLUS your choice of costume and coordinating wand, tiara, and shoes. Cost: $184.95

The Fantasy (exclusive to the Disney Fantasy): all elements of Crown PLUS tutu, sparkly t-shirt, and head band. Cost: $119.95

Under the Sea (exclusive to the Disney Fantasy): This package turns a little girl into a Little Mermaid, and includes a choice of swimsuit and cover-up, vibrant sun block application, Del Sol floral clip that changes colors in the sun, necklace, and nail polish. Cost: $99.95

The deluxe Royal Sea Package comes complete with a Princess Royal Rolling Trunk created exclusively for the package, and also includes three makeover experiences: 1 Castle, 1 Under the Sea, and 1 Pirate package, PLUS a boutique frame with a photo of the Fairy Godmother, PLUS a special invitation with a glass slipper ribbon necklace, and a keepsake glass slipper from Cinderella’s helpers. Cost: $595.

On Pirate night the boutique transforms to The Pirates League. Here you can reserve anyone over the age of 3 years old to be made up in their own pirate look with a new name, learn to swash buckle, and teach them the official Pirate League Oath for $34.95.  Upgrade to The First Mate package that includes a bandanna, scars, fake teeth, eyepatch, and sword for young boys. For girls, the Empress package has shimmering makeup, face gem, nail polish, earring, eye patch, and sword. If you want to add a special pirate costume to either package, you’ll pay $99.95.

Reservations are HIGHLY recommended for any of these experiences. A $10 cancellation fee will be applied to no shows or if cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Another neat feature found throughout the ship is Disney’s Enchanted Art (this can also be found on the Dream). Our favorite? The art found right outside the Boutique here…

You can manuever a pirate ship using the wheel seen here! It is truly amazing, Disney at its best!

Further forward on deck 5, but the entrance is on deck 4, is Vibe. This is the ship’s indoor/outdoor teen exclusive lounge that features a private sundeck, TVs, video games, dance floor, and great supervised activities to promote friendships among the guests.

Now, where does everyone sleep? Where can you swim? What about the spa? Stay tuned…
