Capt Marco is currently the Captain. He and Captain Tom with share the duties 10 weeks on 10 weeks off. Brent was still the cruise director.
For the Fantasy...
Currently no dessert Gala
Currently no character breakfast - like the Island Jam on the 7 night cruises on the Magic and Wonder.
No Tea with Alice.
If you do the Mayan ruins in Costa Maya ….bring bug spray! The bus ride was an hour and 15 minutes each way. We got rain and the path turned to clay mud which stuck to our shoes. Also watch out for fire ants.

Welcome back! We are sailing on the Eastern Carib FANTASY cruise in a few weeks. We've seen the Navigators from the Western cruise already (they are posted at AllEars) but we'd love to see the ones for the Eastern Carib Cruise. Has anyone taken that cruise yet?
Thanks for the update! It will be interesting to see if things change over time, such as character breakfast.
They told me they tested a character breakfast but it didn't work out well. The issue was the number of guest, they layout of the restaurant and the number of characters all fitting in to a specific time frame. I think they will keep working on a different option.
One bonus in Animator's Palate we saw the Crush show one night and the new magic of animation show the 2nd night.
Glad to hear you had a great time. We're thinking of an Eastern Caribbean tour next summer on the Fantasy.

I'm glad that you called to my attention that there was no character breakfast, that way I don't get my kids hopes up for one.
Also, we have been considering a tour of the ruins on either Costa Maya or Cozumel (not sure which would be better). So thanks for sharing your thoughts & ideas on that one as well.
Planning a trip to WDW is like planning a wedding... If you expect things to be flawless, you will be sadly disappointed. If you know that there will be less than perfect times & decide to just laugh them off, then you will be excited when you find the magic all around you.
