    My husband and I are going on the Fantansy in Sept (Eastern) with our 3 yr TWIN GIRLS. Can you please offer some suggestions for on board ship activites as well as shore excursions. This is our first family vacation and also our 10 year anniversary.

    Ahoy Audrey!
    You have definitely chosen a fantastic way to celebrate your 10 year anniversary and first family vacation!  I hope your Fantasy sailing is the first of many magical voyages with Disney Cruise Line!  Your first cruise will be filled with many unforgettable moments that will always hold a special place in your heart!
    You are going to be amazed at all Disney offers on the high seas!  Each night you will receive a Personal Navigator, your daily cruise newsletter, which will list all the ship's happenings for the next day!  My suggestion is to bring along a highlighter so you can mark the activities you do not want to miss!  The Oceaneer Club & Lab have lots of fun activities planned for your princesses!  Magic Playfloor, Make Your Own Fairy, StoryTime , Pixie Crafts, Pluto's PJ Party and Dress Up Fun are a few that come to mind.  For family fun, I recommend attending the phenomenal Broadway-style shows, family dance parties, character meet & greets and playing mini-golf on Goofy's Sports Deck.  A visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for a Fairy Tale Makeover is also a wonderful way to give your girls the royal Disney treatment!  Appointments can be booked online in the Planning Center on
    When you go ashore in St. Maarten, I suggest a beach excursion such as the Afternoon Beach Bash Tour or an marine adventure like Seaworld Explorer-Coral Reef Exploration.  On St. Thomas, the Tortola Dolphin Encounter is a great opportunity to interact  with some friendly dolphins!  Another option your girls might enjoy is the Butterfly Secrets and Mountain View or the Butterfly Anytime.  I'm sure you are going to love whatever you choose to do! 
    Thanks so much for your question, Audrey!  Please let me know if you think of anything else!
