Will be leaving Oct. 31, from New Orleans. Does anyone know if there is a secret door on this ship? I have read where some of the ships have one that most people do not know about. Also does the Fantasy have a mini fridge in the ocean view rooms? Thanks for any info....
well hopefully since the OP cruise was in Oct maybe he found the "secret" door he was referring to. The only one I can think of is to go through the Main show lounge along side of the stage on both sides there is a door, then another door and it goes out to the front of the ship.. Not alot of folks know about these door so you sorta have some privacy when out there. The wind does blow strong when at sea..but you get great views from here..

A secret door? I have seen some ships keep firedoors to stairwells closed on some decks that if you open them you get faster access. It could be that.
Maybe I should not admit this - but if you have ever worked on a ship, like I have, you kind of intuitively know where and what things are. Such as the side doors in the theaters. Lot of theaters have a grand level with the main entrance a deck higher, so there is a 'secret entrance" that will get you right to the front row. But it isn't a secret, its just harder to find.
Here is the answer, pretty much what we thought - going to the theaters or to deck areas. They look like firedoors because thats what they are, but I don't think they are secret. It is more likely they got closed during a rehearsal and no one remembered toopen them again.
I showed the 'secret door' to all the Cruisemates on the Fantasy Bloggers cruise at the welcome show since we were seated lower front & there early. Some needed the air.
It is hard to find if you haven't seen it as it seems to be back stage in a way and through two doors as you say. On some Fantasy class ships there are actually two doors, but most only one.

While it is fun to discover the ships areas, such as during a scavenger hunt, it is important to note the part at the wiki site that reads "This door may be marked Crew Only, if so please follow the rules and do not enter."
I suppose there is no penalty if a pax is found in these areas?
The new ships tour takes pax to the bridge, galley, and, surprisingly, crew areas. After 9/11 the tour was discontinued but it is returning.

Would you believe we did see Bill Connolly in London when he started doing the Jolson musical.. and it was the night they surprised him with "This is Your Life:
Secret door--now just coming off the Gem we had difficulty getting down to the front rows as there wasn't a railing... and for Parrot Pop and his mobility problem.. it was difficult.. but if I remember right there are exit doors next to the stage.. would that do it?
