This is slightly off topic but...
I am going on the Fantasy in five weeks, and was wondering if there are any exceptions to the 18 year old age limit for the gym. I will be almost 17 by the time of the cruise, and was hoping there would be some way for me to use it.
Does anyone know about this?

LookItsAPLane, at 16yo your only chance to use the fitness club would be during the Vibe (teen club)'s assigned hours...

back! I so didn't want to leave. ;_;
I will try to get the eastern navigators up tonight followed by the report over the next week. The Fantasy was amazing, and overall I was extremely impressed with Disney's quality of service, the kindness of the staff and everything about the ship.
Some quick things to throw out:
They do still have MV merchandise at this time, I saw a LOT of hats, and many tshirts. (both with mickey & the ship and just the ship)
They have been OUT of the inaugrual champagne since the third western cruise!! (There are bottles on display at the royal court, but I was told they're display only/filled with water). They are trying to order more, but for a champagne that was supposed to last the entire year, it went out FAST!
Oh La La Champagne is $120 a bottle. (But you get a really sweet complimentary treat to enjoy the champagne with in chocolate, strawberrry or mango if you have it in OLaLa).
The Ogill's cream liquer is like Baileys with a kick. I loved it. I wished I had grabbed a bottle before I left the ship!
Shows - Only Believe is available on the TV at this time. We went to almost all the shows live anyway, but I had heard on the boards that shows were available if you could not make it to them. (This is incorrect.) So if you don't make it to the shows, you won't be able to see them on the TV later, so try your best to make them.
Kids in adult areas - OGills & La Piazza are kid friendly until 9am - there is family programming in both areas - most of the time on the cruise, both were sparse with guests anyways. Just in case you're an adult with a toddler and want a pre dinner drink in that area & not want to stash them away in the nursery. (Actually, right before dinner when the bars have just opened, almost all of Europa is pretty empty and quiet, so it's very nice & relaxing.) Also if you aren't able to stay up late - I kept crashing, I wore myself out!, you can enjoy most of Europa this way.
2nd Dining = More chances to see characters!
The character meet and greets (specifically in the evening) are designed to occur before main dinner seating. So, if you have second dining, you actually get twice as many chances to see certain characters, because they tend to fall right before 1st seating/1st show & right after 1st show/before 2nd seating (while 1st seating is still occurring.)
5k - was great, they are completely out of t-shirts - we looked ALL OVER & asked multiple cast members about them. Maybe this means they are working on a new design?
More to come with photos & illustrations! Overall, it was so much fun. I will definitely cruise with Disney again! One of the servers in Meridian (I forget her name offhand), mentioned a rumor about a fifth ship? @_@ Who knows!

Can't wait to hear more. We will be on the Fantasy in June and we are renewing our vows onboard, can't wait! What did you think of the layout of the ship? What kind of room did you have? Thanks for all the info.
