Disney's newest ship, which debuted in January 2012, is a sister ship to the Dream and has all the same amazing features, including a 765-foot watercoaster that whirls around the top decks, lots of wet play areas and nearly a full deck dedicated to kids' indoor playrooms with such high-tech features as a Magic PlayFloor (basically a giant video game you control with your feet). But Fantasy is no copycat. It also has an expanded, Europe-themed nighttime district and sundeck areas for adults, a large roster of Broadway-style shows and technology that lets you see your own creation animated as you dine in the Animator's Palate restaurant. The Art Nouveau-influenced Atrium Lobby is a beautiful space with a peacock feather-patterned carpet and extravagant gold-plated chandelier, with a bronze statue of Mademoiselle Minnie overlooking the scene.

Must see feature for...

Adults
While kids are occupied with activities, head to the top-of-ship schmoozing spot, Satellite Falls, where you can sit and soak under a waterfall, cleverly built under the ship's TV satellite dish.

Kids
At the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and The Pirates League, kids can get a complete Disney princess or pirate makeover including costume, hair, makeup and accessories. Prices range from $15.95 to $184.95.

Dining highlight
The fanciest of the rotation restaurants (which everyone visits at least once), is the lovely Royal Court, with a design scheme influenced by Disney castles -- a rose here, a glass slipper there. Disney royalty, including Cinderella and Belle, make appearances.

Wow factor
The AquaDuck watercoaster serves up both thrills and, if you keep your eyes open, ocean views. It doesn't get any more wow than that.
