Preview – Disney Fantasy

dcl logo

With the new Disney Cruise Line’s christening of the Fantasy a month away from today, I thought it would be fun to take a “sneak peek” at the nightclubs and lounges that will be on this new ship.

First, the all ages ones are:

“Bon Voyage”

Bon Voyage offers a sophisticated Art Deco retreat for Guests to relax and unwind at the bar or in its comfortable sitting area.

Looking at the photos and 360 degree view of the Bon Voyage, it looks kind of neat, but definitely small, with only one table and chair set available.   Disney says “it’s a great place to meet family and friends before dinner”  so I suppose if you’re just doing that,  it would be fine.

“Currents”

… an outdoor bar that boasts a panoramic view located on Deck 13, Forward where Guests can relax with a refreshing beverage amid the warm ocean breezes. Perched high onboard one of the ship’s upper decks, Current features cozy deck chairs, making it an ideal place to catch some rays while onboard.

This looks like a comfortable outdoor spot, but I’m not a big fan of bar stools without backs.  Check out the photos and a 360 degree view.

For adults, there are a whole bunch of options, including several in the ship’s “Europa District” which is described as a nighttime entertainment district exclusively for Guests ages 18 and older.

 “Cove Cafe” 

This peaceful spot—featuring furnishings and artwork inspired from the glamorous Art Deco era of the 1920s and 1930s—also provides a selection of magazines and books, a large flat-screen television broadcasting the latest national news, as well as WiFi-enabled café laptops (available at an additional charge) to surf the Internet and check email while at sea.

I like the look of this lounge a lot.  It has a nice relaxing vibe to it and I love the blues and dark woods.  Another set of photos and a 360 degree view.

“Meridian”

The design of Meridian pays homage to world travel. Inspired by the early days of sea travel, the décor features a navigational tool embedded in the floor, while leather maps embossed with passport stamps from around the world adorn the walls. Adding to the atmosphere, a constellation map lit up with twinkling celestial markings hangs overhead.

It looks pretty nice with some neat touches.  I’ll be interested to see more pictures from this one but until then, DCL has these pictures and 360 degree view.

“Vista Cafe” 

Adorned in old-world Art Deco glamour, Vista Café is also a state-of-the-art hotspot, offering convenient wireless connectivity for surfing the Internet while out at sea.

This one looks like a long hallway with large portals to look outside.  Photos and 360 degree view.

Heading to “Europa” we have:

“La Piazza” 

 Inspired by picturesque Italian cities and their decorative plazas, La Piazza is the perfect place for adults to relax after an action-packed day.

Order a cocktail from the bar, which is modeled after a colorful vintage carousel, and retreat to a romantic couple’s booth to reconnect with your loved one. Venetian masks and a classic Vespa with a sidecar add further Italian flair that will have you saying Salute as you toast to the evening—and to the fun-filled night ahead.

They only have one picture, but it looks pretty wild.  Another one I really want to see more pictures of.

“O’Gills Pub” 

Dark woods and brass accents are reminiscent of the friendly neighborhood pubs throughout Ireland—and flat-screen televisions give O’Gill’s Pub a welcome modern-day twist.

Enjoy a favorite adult beverage, while watching live sporting events in brilliant high-def. Exclusively for Guests ages 18 and older, O’Gill’s Pub is a great spot for adults to unwind after a fun-filled day, catch the big game and kick off a night exploring the entertainment of Europa.

Just one picture of O’Gills so far as well.

“Ooh La La” 

Reminiscent of an elegant French boudoir, Ooh La La is a whimsical treat for the eyes and the palate.

Recline on a Louis XIV chaise longue and engage in a sprightly tête-à-tête. Order a favorite cocktail from the bar, inspired by a jewelry box and backed with sparkling diamond-like facets. Victorian furniture, velvet-tufted walls and ornate mirrors—in addition to the sensuous color palate—further enhance the reverie.

The red chair in the middle of the room fascinates me.  Check it out here.

“Skyline”

Adults here can enjoy signature cocktails—along with sweeping panoramas of famous European cities. Marvel at the view through tall “windows to the world,” featuring a different European skyline each day from a vantage atop a high rise. And as the day progresses, watch the spectacular scene transform from day to night.

Each evening, Skyline offers signature cocktails inspired by the day’s featured location. Order a drink from the full-service bar, and be “transported” to the heart of Europe’s most fascinating cities with a virtually breathtaking viewpoint.

Just one picture here too.  Not really my style, but I will be interested to hear what those who visit it think.

“The Tube”

“Mind the gap” as you walk across a Tube route map into the metropolitan club. Order a signature cocktail from the bar—inspired by Big Ben and London’s many train stations—and lounge on “mod” furniture. Got the groove? Dance atop the illuminated Union Jack dance floor. Four iconic English phone booths add further flair to this vibrant nightclub, where fun-filled nights await.

Only one  picture of the inside once again,  so you don’t get the idea of the whole place, but it looks pretty “interesting” for sure.

Which one of the new lounges on the Fantasy interests you most?  Catherine, our DCL guest blogger, will be taking a cruise on the Fantasy this fall and I can’t wait to hear what she has to say about them all.
