Are you wondering whether to book a Disney Fantasy Oceanview Stateroom? We think that this is one of the best choices on the Disney Fantasy.
There are two different types of Oceanview Stateroom on the Disney Fantasy. The staterooms are also identical on her sister ship the Disney Dream.
The Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom
The Oceanview Stateroom is the same square footage as a Deluxe Inside Stateroom at 204 square feet. However, it does seem larger because of the window which of course allows you to look outside. Each of these staterooms sleeps either 3 or 4 guests. There is a Queen bed and a single sleeper sofa. Some of the staterooms also have a pull down berth which enables the stateroom to sleep 4 guests.
The window can either be one or two portholes. We prefer the one window as it is large enough to sit inside. Well it is unless you are particularly tall!
Some of the porthole windows are obstructed. Some are more obstructed than others, but usually you will have a view of a large part of a lifeboat out of your window if you pick one of these.
There are a number of decks to choose from. The staterooms are located on Decks 2,5,6,7 and 8.
Disney Fantasy Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom
If you want some extra space the extra room in the Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom is well worth it. At 241 square feet the stateroom is a decent size. The other great feature about this stateroom is that some sleep up to 5 guests. This is great if you have a larger family and do not want to have two staterooms.
The Deluxe Family Oceanview Staterooms are on decks 5,6,7,8 and 9. Most have one large porthole window. Some on Decks 5 and 6 have 2 large portholes. We really prefer the single window, but the ones with two are in a lower category so will usually be cheaper.
The Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms have the same configuration and features as the standard Oceanview Stateroom. Each stateroom has a Queen bed with luxury Frette linens. The beds are some of the most comfotable that we have ever experienced on sea or land.
There is a nice seating area with a convertible couch next to the window. There is a desk with a good amount of storage and wall shelving. The 22 inch television is on a swivel stand so that you can watch it from either the bed or the living area. There is also a heavy curtain which separates the living from the sleeping area.
Storage is extremely well thought out in Disney staterooms. There is plenty of under bed storage which is useful for putting your suitcases when you have unpacked. There is a wall of wardrobe and shelving space opposite the bathroom. Usually there is a reasonable amount of hangers but we always bring extra with us. Each stateroom has a storage trunk which doubles as a table. It is useful for storing a lot of items.
The bathroom in the Standard and the Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms is the famous “split bath”. This was a first for Disney cruise lines and is a very popular feature of most Disney cruise staterooms. The toilet and a sink are in a separate room from the bath/shower and an additional sink. This makes the stateroom much more practical when guests are sharing – less competition for getting to the bathroom to get ready.
Most of the Oceanview staterooms have the very popular round bath. It is not a large bath – big enough only for a small child really. However, the design works really well.
The bath products are really nice. They are H20 Plus bath and shower products of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soap. The bath towels are a good quality and a decent size.
Other nice features of the room include a refrigerator, iPod dock and a safe.
If you have young children a great feature is the stars which shine above the pull down bed. They can go to sleep under a sky of twinkiling starts. Don’t worry, you can switch them off too!
We think that the Oceanview Staterooms are one of the best options on the Disney Fantasy. You will save a considerable amount of money over the staterooms with a Verandah. Those of course are our favorite, but often the price difference means that we pick the Oceanview.
