This colossal cruise ship features one of the most robust and diverse kids program. A highlight for young passengers is the Dream Work Experience.
On the Disney Fantasy, kids programs are Disney-crafted and predictably high-quality; the older set loves bulleting down 4-deck-drop AquaDuck water coaster.
Battle for the tallest waterfall in the ocean, and new additions such as Planet Z glow-in-the-dark laser tag and Sugar Beach ice cream.
Turned Disney Magic into a modern member of Sailing Mickey. AquaLab Splash Play Park plus two water slides up the fun quotient of magic.

Guests enjoy stunning views of the Houston city skyline at St. Arnold's expansive outdoor beer garden as they sip on their favorite pint.
