    hello, we are doing back to back cruises on fantasy (west and east carribbean), wondering what the procedure is with our baggage? Do we take our baggage off the boat and then on again, or is there an easier option? Can we stay on the boat?

    Ahoy again Peter –
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited to hear about your back-to-back cruises on the Disney Fantasy. The Fantasy is a fabulous ship full of fun, entertainment and a wonderful crew of cast members waiting to please. My family visited the Fantasy last month and had so much fun and relaxation on that luxurious vessel. I have not had the pleasure of taking a back-to-back cruise yet (mine is planned for October) but I asked plenty of questions from the cast members on the Fantasy about how it works and they were very helpful. If you are keeping the same stateroom for both cruises, you do not need to worry about packing up your luggage.  Guests who have the same stateroom will leave all their clothing in the drawers and closets and bring out a day bag with medicines and their cruise documentation. This option is better for my pirate family since we hate packing! Some guests choose to change staterooms so that they can save money or experience different room types. If you are changing staterooms, then instructions will be left in the room the day prior to debarkation about where to place your luggage and it will be moved for you. You should not have to take your luggage through customs. You will have to leave the ship briefly to pass through customs and check in again, but then you are allowed back on before general boarding.  My fellow panelist Nancy has already taken a back-to-back cruise and she answers your question here. Peter, I hope you enjoy your cruise and thanks for visiting with us!
