Review SummaryThis was our second Disney cruise, but first 7 day Disney cruise and first time aboard the Magic. We had previously experienced the Disney Wonder on the Land & Sea vacation package.
Disney surely knows how to make a vacation special! The ships are beautifully appointed, service is exceptional and activities plentiful for all to enjoy.
There are not words nor space enough to describe the absolutely fantastic time that was had by all in our group (18 total - 9 kids ages 11-17 and 10 adults ages 40-78) Just be assured that we will be traveling again on the Magic, hoping to join in upcoming 'destination' cruises they are now promoting.
Food and Dining
Dining staff was knowledgeable and helpful at every turn. Nightly descriptions and suggestions were helpful in making selections.
You cannot beat Disney's rotation dining plan, allowing you to experience all three family dining rooms. Each dining room is a different theme from the formal setting of Lumiere's to the island setting of Parrot Cay with many things to offer. The animation and ambiance of each was exceptional.
My only complaint was that the amplification of the music on a couple of occassions in the Walt Disney Theater was too loud, drowning out the singing of the performers. My mother was traveling with us and she wears hearing aids. Without them she cannot hear, but on these nights even with turning her aids completely off she was able to hear the music.
Service and Staff
The details that have been covered in the design of the ship and programs is superb.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room was finely appointed and homey. When we first arrived on board our room was ready and waiting with welcoming materials and looked like it was just designed.
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Carlos & Charlie's for a real treat!
Don't Miss: Snorkeling the coral reef
Pros: Relaxing atmosphere
Cons: Leaving our vacation
