Your First Family Vacay

Fantasy Ship, Disney Cruise Line

Port Canaveral, Florida

Fantasy Ship, Disney Cruise Line

Disney's newest ship, the 1,250-cabin Fantasy, navigates the Caribbean on seven-night itineraries, while cherished characters (ample photo ops!) frolic with you. The staff is smiling and helpful, pictures on walls magically come alive (to your baby's delight!), and features such as 24-hour free room service let you operate on your own schedule. Take turns with your honey for time in the spa and fitness center, and book a date-night meal at Palo or Remy, splurge-worthy adults-only restaurants (extra charge).

Bonus for Baby Pre-trip, order diapers and wipes for your cabin. They'll lend a play yard. Bathrooms have tubs, rare for the cruise world. It's a Small World Nursery coddles your little character with infant swings and toys (age 3 months to 3 years; $6 per hour). On deck, shaded Nemo's Reef is a baby-safe water area with pop jets and bubblers.

Book it! Rates vary widely, depending on the sail date and cabin, but an inside cabin starts at $1,085 per adult, double occupancy, and $375 for baby for a week. Unlimited food, most nonalcoholic beverages, and onboard entertainment included; DisneyCruise.Disney.Go.com.
