If you ever want to know the honest truth about anything, ask a child. With the launch of Disney Cruise Lines’ new ship the Fantasy, I wanted an honest review and so thought of the smallest cruiser I could think of. After returning from Fantasy’s maiden voyage I sat down with 6 1/2 year old (cannot forget the 1/2) Presley to ask her what she thought of her trip.
Presley is a first grader (almost a second grader) at Bishop Leonard-Saint Mary of the Mount Academy. She was very adamant about mentioning her principal Mr. Garrity in the interview because she said it would earn her free ice cream. (See, children are honest.) She likes music and says she is an amazing dancer. When asked about her favorite singers she replied Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber. When asked further what she thought of Justin, her response was, “I think I want to marry him.”
Now, let’s see if the Fantasy is truly just that.

BT: What were the restaurants like?
P: Good and the waiters were excellent! One named Ally was awesome and did magic and one named
Sonya made me things every night. At Animator’s Palate I drew a doll on my placemat and they put it
on the screen and made it dance. I guess that’s why they call it Animators… then they put my name on
the screen too!
BT: What was the food like?
BT: What did you eat?
P: I ate bread rolls, steak, french fries, and chocolate lava cake.
BT: How was the pool?
P: I liked the Mickey Slide… no I didn’t like it. I LOVED it! I went on it like 100,000 times. I didn’t like the
Nemo Area because I fell there.
BT: How was the AquaDuck?
P: It was the best ride on the ship! It’s a water rollercoaster that goes all around the ship and goes
fast. You ride on a raft. It was not just fun, it was AMAZING!
BT: What was your room like?
P: It was small but I enjoyed it. I liked… no, LOVED the bunk beds. It was the best bed I ever slept in and I
liked that it would smash my mom if I fell down. I also liked the Peter Pan ceiling. It had Peter Pan,
Tinkerbell, Wendy and another boy I can’t remember. (Our inside source said that she also loved the
towel animals and pillow chocolates.)

BT: Did you make new friends while on the ship?
P: I got to meet lots of new friends. (This was quite a list of names so we’ll keep it short.)
BT: Do you think other kids would like the ship?
P: Yes, especially a lot of my friends. This was my favorite ship. I can’t believe I got to be one of the first
people on it.
BT: Presley, thank you so much for talking to us about your trip.
P: The other thing I wanted to tell you was I love the gift shop. (Our inside source said she liked the gift
shop so much because she was able to get souvenirs for her friends.)
Well there you have it, the Disney Fantasy really is a dream come true.
