November 2013 - Disney Magic to Caribbean - Western
We recently went on the 5 night cruise out of Miami on the Disney Magic. We had previously cruised on the Fantasy, and while the Magic is a beautiful ship, I just enjoyed the larger Fantasy much better. The pool on the Magic is tiny and the reception areas are small. The Fantasy just had many more special touches like the scavenger hunts and the pictures that become animated. One thing that was very good on the Magic was the food. It was really excellent. The ports were nice - we went to Grand Cayman and swam with the sting rays which was quite an experience. We also wentto Tulum which in mid-Nov was over 95 degrees. They advertise it as having a beach that you can also visit, but that is for the very fit only as there are steep stairs down from the cliff. The beach was also very crowded and the water looked murky. Despite the terrible heat, it was not very appealing. Tulum is very interesting but the heat made it almost unbearable. Next time we will stay in cozemel or take the ferry to playa de carman.
