Review Summary

We just returned home from a week on the Disney Magic. What a great trip! Everything was easy... there were no hassles! The rooms were very nice, the crew was fabulous, the characters were everywhere, the professional photographers were very good, the evening shows were excellent, the kids enjoyed the kids clubs. The only things we didn't like was the pools were very crowded on sea days and the food wasn't great... especially the breakfast buffet. The dinner choices got better as the week progressed though. We only had to tender into one port (Grand Cayman). Castaway Cay was the best! There were 8 in our group and we all had a wonderful time!

The breakfast and lunch buffet weren't great but we enjoyed the lunch options by the pool and the dinner choices were good.

Everyone was great but our waiter, Edward from England, was the BEST!

Ship Quality

I've been on nicer ships but it was clean and in good condition.

Cabin / Stateroom

We were in one of the smallest rooms and it still fit 4 people comfortably.

Ports Of Call

George Town, Grand Cayman

We went to 7 mile beach on our own. Gorgeous water! The taxi will cost you more to get back to the ship!!

Key West, Florida

We just walked around the area on our own. The aquarium is over-priced and not worth the money. We went to Ernest Hemmingway's house. It has 46 cats roaming around, which my daughter loved. The cats are not friendly though and should not be touched.

Cozumel, Mexico

We went to Paradise Beach on our own. The kids had a blast. You can buy wrist bands for $9 and you get a float, you can go boating, go on a water tampoline and a water Iceberg climbing wall. Again, it will cost you more to take a taxi back to the ship!

Castaway Cay (Disney Private Island)

5 out of 5
Awesome place! Everyone rents floats for $6. Snorkling is pricey ($25 for an adult) and there isn't too much to see. They will not allow you to snorkle w/o a life vest so don't bother trying to bring your own stuff.

Pros: no hassle vacation

Cons: the food

Recommends Disney Magic? Yes!
