First Look! Disney Fantasy Cruise Ship Specialty Cocktails

The Disney Fantasy was christened in New York City this week, and eager passengers await their first voyage on the newest Disney Cruise Line ship!

We wanted to share a few of the specialty cocktails you’ll find on board — you know we’re all about prioritizing any on board credit you may have received! ;-)

Adults-Only Restaurants

The Fantasy’s adults-only restaurants, Palo and Remy, will offer some delicious ways to complement your meal!

Remy

The uber-posh French restaurant, Remy, features a cocktail that is expertly handcrafted at your table. The signature cocktail “Collette” combines Taittinger Champagne and pear vodka, then is garnished with fresh blueberry, dried apricot, and mint leaf.

We loved this one! :-) The cool science-y part? When vodka is mixed with champagne, the champagne loses its bubbles! The sugar being released from the piece of candied apricot re-creates the effervescence! Taste? Incredible.

Collette Champagne Cocktail

Remy also boasts two wine lists! A special list of nearly 200 wines features vintage French wines, and Remy’s Vault holds the exclusive list with rare wines from around the globe. The latter lists includes a 1947 Château Cheval Blanc, which was the wine requested by the food critic from “Ratatouille” and retails at $25,000 per bottle. You’ll also find a 1961 Château Latour, which was also featured in the film.

Bottles from the Vault are presented by a white-gloved sommelier in an elegant velvet box with the wine on a silver-plated plaque.

Palo

The Italian restaurant, Palo, offers a sparkling Prosecco and lush red Barolo that were exclusively bottled for this upscale restaurant. The wine list brims with Italian wines including a selection of Super Tuscans and an Italian Riesling.

The signature cocktail, Balsamic Grande, combines vodka, a splash of five-year old balsamic vinegar, and fresh muddled strawberries. After-dinner, grappa is served in a jeroboam bottle.

Libations also include Rémy Martin Louis XIII Rare Cask, a highly sought-after cognac that’s served from an elegant Baccarat crystal decanter. Your one-ounce sip retails at $1,250. A less expensive option, a rare bottle of 43-year old Camus Cuvee 4.176 Cognac is presented in an engraved Baccarat crystal decanter for $145.

Adults-Only Nightlife District: Europa

The nightlife district on the Fantasy, Europa, features popular venues for entertainment: Skyline, O’Gills Pub, The Tube, and La Piazza each offer unique beverages.

Skyline

The bar’s backdrop features a changing skyline from cities around Europe! Themed beverages for each spot (St. Petersburg, Russia; Athens, Greece; Florence, Italy; Budapest, Hungary; Paris, France; London, England; and Barcelona, Spain) are infused with fresh herbs and fruits.

Skyline Lounge

Try Barcelona’s El Conquistador with strawberry, basil, and fresh cracked pepper; the Aphrodite from Athens with thyme, coriander, rosemary, basil, and mint; or Florence’s Sogno di Cioccolato with Chianti, sweet cocoa, agave nectar and whipped cream. Yum!

The Tube

The ship’s dance club is inspired from London’s underground train stations (LOVE THIS)! Six cocktails were created by mixologists for this club, including the “1863,” named for the year the underground opened, is created with vanilla vodka, Monster Energy, and Imperial English breakfast tea. That’ll definitely keep you going until you can shut down the place!

The Tube

I tend to prefer a standard margarita, myself — are you surprised? ;-)

Ooh La La

The champagne bar on the Fantasy feels truly indulgent! Taittinger even created a new Champagne label for the ship!

Ooh La La

In addition, a special Taittinger Nocturne featuring Jessica Rabbit from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is the signature bottle at Ooh La La (FUN!). The limited edition bottles will be available for purchase exclusively aboard the ship. Guests can enjoy taking one (or both) bottles home to commemorate their voyage!

O’Gills Pub

Stop by this Irish pub for the red lager draft that was made especially for this venue! There’s also a private label Irish Cream and vintage Irish Whiskey. For a bit more indulgence, treat yourself to the Blarney Stone Tasting flight with O’Gills Irish Cream, Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, and Irish coffee.

O'Gills

La Piazza

Themed after a beautiful Italian plaza, the bar menu includes Italian drinks, natch! Choose between sparkling Prosecco, Moretti Peroni beer, red and white wines, grappa, limoncello, and after-dinner sips served with almond biscotti.

La Piazza

Non-Alcoholic Cocktails

New options created by mixologists are made with fresh ingredients and “better-for-you” options! Organic spirits, fresh fruits and herbs, and lower calorie no-sugar-added fruit purees were the prime ingredient focus for these drinks.

Try the Purple Basil Lemonade mixed with cranberry juice, sparkling water, lime, and fresh basil; or the Mint Tea Punch crafted with English breakfast tea, cranberry and pineapple juices, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar with a splash of sparkling water.

We’ve got a review of mocktails from the Disney Dream right here! Check it out. :-)

Tell us what beverage you would select aboard the newest Disney ship! Have you enjoyed a special drink on the Disney Cruise Line? Let us know. Cheers!

    Were you in NYC to see the Fantasy AJ? I was there Wednesday afternoon, I would have loved to finally meet you. Europa was amazing, as was the entire ship. Loved The Tube and OGills the best. Sadly no food or drinks to sample during my tour but the menus looked very creative. Looking forward to seeing the ship again in Florida at the end of the month so that I can fully enjoy all of the restaurants and nightclubs.

    Pudge — Sadly, I wasn’t there, but I can’t wait to hear your reviews! :-)

    What a beautiful, beautiful (emphasis) ship. And those cocktails make me want to take up drinking. Oh, wait a minute, I’ve already done that. All the venues look inviting, but there’s something about an Irish pub that I can’t resist. This one looks really nice. If only my wife wasn’t prone to seasickness.

    wow! I wonder if I could survive on a liquid diet alone on these cruise ships! ;) Looks like there are so many great drinks to try! The Aphrodite from Athens sounds like something I’d like.. very herb-y… and the Jessica Rabbit champagne at Ooh La La?!? I’d HAVE to take a bottle of that home! Now to just convince the hubby to take a cruise!

  5. AJ says:

    Alan — Ha ha!! From the time I know you spend at bars and lounges in Orlando, you’re well on your way to winning that prize! I agree about O’Gills! Looks like a blast!

    Marci — Ha ha! No way on that liquid diet thing — there are too many delicious entrees to pass them up! (Plus, the alcohol will cost you while the entrees are PRE-PAID!) My fingers are crossed that you can convince hubby! Would love to hear your reviews on the restaurants here.

    Cannot wait to see the Fantasy in October! And the Collette was one of my favorite drinks when we were on the Dream last year. Meridian has some terrific cocktails!

    This ship looks absolutely gorgeous. I’ve always wanted to take a Disney cruise but I was apprehensive that it would be geared more towards families but these pictures make me reconsider. The carousel bar is so whimsical and makes me think of “Big Fish.” I’m off to tell the boyfriend that this will be our next vacation!

    I will be picking up a bottle of the Tattinger / private label (Jessica Rabbit) bubbly!
