We also were on the Fantasy the first week of June to the Western Caribbean and really enjoyed the beauty of the ship. As for the shows; My wife (53), my daughter (21), and myself (55) enjoyed the shows, especially Aladdin. What I was disappointed in myself was the main dining rooms. Sure they were incredible to see and Animators Palate was a lot of fun, but I was disappointed in our service and the food for me was just "OK" Maybe my expectations were just too high. But what was the shocker was how terrible our servers were. Asking for a refill on a soda and waiting over 20 minutes is not acceptable. Another night we ordered adult beverages, our server took my Keys to the World card to charge to the room. 30 minutes into the meal I asked her if she still had my card. She told me that she would get it for me shortly. I reminded her again after our meal about 20 minutes later that we were wanted to leave. It took her over 15 minutes to get the card.
As for the other dining venues on the ship. I was not disappointed at all. I'm not a fan of buffets, but the breakfast buffet was very good with an excellent variety of options including some turkey bacon and turkey sausage that was a nice surprise for me. Also, the servers were outstanding. We only did the lunch buffet once, but we were very happy with it as well. My impression of Cabana's was a good one.
Now Remy and Palo were outstanding. I had a reservation for Remy dinner our second night, got a Palo brunch a few weeks before sailing on our second sea day (very lucky in the middle of the night) and a dinner at Palo. After our final encounter in the main dining room I tried to book a Palo dinner after our brunch and couldn't get one, but I was able to get Remy. More than I wanted to pay, but I really didn't want to eat in the main dining rooms again.
So in short, I loved Remy, Really loved Palo both the brunch and dinner, enjoyed Cabana's, and was disappointed in the main dining rooms and the service. Everything else about the ship and the cruise I just absolutely loved. I booked a Mediterranean cruise for next year with Disney on-board our second night, but cancelled when I got home. Just not sure of the dining. Perhaps it was just an off team of servers I had and that made my attitude toward the food a bit indifferent.
I know it's a completely different experience in cruising, but for my daughters college graduation next year, I just booked a nice relaxing and quiet cruise to Alaska with Silversea on the Silver Muse. I love the hustle and bustle of Disney and have been DVC members for many years, but on a cruise I just want to relax, enjoy the time and have some incredible good food.
