CELEBRATION, Fla. (June 20, 2017) – The newly-enhanced Disney Fantasy docks in the sun-soaked islands of Aruba, Barbados, Martinique and St. Kitts for the first time this week, offering guests tropical and adventurous experiences ashore and enticing new enhancements onboard, including immersive youth spaces, a delectably tasty sweets emporium and iconic Tiffany & Co. jewelry.
Visitors to Aruba’s arid landscape can explore the island’s past through the centuries-old Alto Vista Chapel that overlooks the crystal blue ocean or by visiting the oldest structure on the island, Fort Zoutman, home to Aruba’s Dutch ancestry. In tropical Barbados, guests will encounter pristine waters, British colonial history and coral reefs that surround this limestone island. Martinique’s famous black and white sand beaches greet the Disney Fantasy at its next stop, offering a vibrant blend of Gallic and Caribbean culture and stunning views, from picturesque towns to vibrant, green rainforests. The small, volcanic St. Kitts offers sapphire waters surrounding historic, centuries-old sites that inspire all who visit. The Disney Fantasy will call on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands and Disney Cruise Line’s private island Castaway Cay to round out this 11-night tropical trip.
To celebrate the ship’s inaugural visits to these sun-kissed islands, Captain Fabien Dib and shipboard officials will host local port and community leaders onboard the 4,000 passenger vessel for a traditional maritime plaque exchange ceremony in each port of call.
While sailing throughout the Caribbean, guests of all ages will find exciting experiences aboard the recently refurbished Disney Fantasy. The ship’s latest highlights include imaginative new spaces for kids to explore the universes of Star Wars and Marvel, treats to delight the entire family at the Sweet on You specialty ice cream and candy shop themed after iconic Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts and luxury shopping for adults at an exclusive Tiffany & Co store, offering timeless collections of jewelry and accessories. After exploring all the new offerings, guests can enjoy entertainment such as the uproarious Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular and dine at exclusive venues such as intimate, French-inspired Remy and romantic, modern-Italian Palo.
