Amazing Med Cruise by RuthieCormode

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

Disney cruises are just amazing. Our one last year to Norway was amazing so we booked this one straight away. The standards are amazing and it's so so enjoyable for the whole family. We are going with an alternative cruise line next year purely due to scheduling (when we want to go on holiday Disney Magic will be doing the same itinery as this year) and We are worried we will be disappointed after Disney!

Magical Trip on the Disney Magic by Olivierf143

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

This was our 1st Disney cruise and the staff of the Disney Magic just made it all spectacular. This itinerary is port intensive but still enjoyable. The app is very good and the only suggestion would be for it to allow you to add extra bookings. The food quality is very good and provided a lot of variety. We booked a Placeholder before we left. We will definitely return and even with the +- 2,386 guests it never felt crowded.

I was lucky enough to... by StNoel00

Sail date: /
Ship: Disney Magic

I was lucky enough to spend three consecutive weeks on the Magic back in August of 2017. My Mom was the onboard Port lecturer! Our cabin was on deck 2, behind the “forbidden DO NOT ENTER” doors, where they put special guests. There were four women in that room and we didn’t kill each other! Disney is for kids!!!!!! Thankfully, they have a wonderful adults only section where you can get away from it all. Disney does a great job of keeping you entertained and their nightly shows were amazing!!

My first ever cruise was... by cgravely

Sail date: /
Ship: Disney Magic

My first ever cruise was aboard the Disney Magic this past August, sailing out of Barcelona. The food was surprisingly good, with the breakfast buffet being the highlight. The service, with the exception of how staff handled a luggage snafu in day one, was excellent. The itinerary was a whirlwind, covering a lot of ground in just a few days. We hired private guides for tours of Florence and Rome, so no feedback on Disney excursions. The fireworks show was a nice surprise. The deepwater mooring off the coast of Cannes was amazing, with the sun rising over the city. All in all, this was a great introductory cruise for me!

Third Disney cruise and each gets better. Shows, food and entertainment were great. The only downfall was the 3 hour process y o get thru the Barcelona airport. I have booked the Panama Canal for next October. 434 days to go, can't wait.

A Wonderful Experience! by dorismini

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

A wonderful way to experience ports we had never been to before. This being our second Disney cruise, we knew to expect great service, top of the line entertainment, and lots of fun activities on board. Very happy with our overall experience.

Disney Cruise to the Baltic Sea by michbo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

HappyThis cruise was outstanding.  We saw so much on this whirlwind tour of the Baltic Sea. We only had 1 bumpy day at sea with the remaining smooth. 

 

Disney Cruise lines are exceptional. They are so clean and friendly.  This cruise line stands above the rest because of all their attention to details and for their small passenger to cruise staff ratio. If you ask for anything, the staff does it instantly and with a smile.

Great summer trip by steveandlea

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Baltic

Disney knows how to do it right. Kids had a blast -parents had a blast.  Time to be together and times when we could all be on our own.  Perfect family vacation

Disney Magic - Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallin by djmarchalonis36

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Europe

The Shore Excursions were very well done.  We had a large family group of 11 so we were able to have private tours.

 

Improvements could be made with the photography services.  We were not able to get any of our pictures on a CD.

Excellent by ncrocker408

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Europe - Northern Europe

The Walt Disney suite, characters, smooth sailing. Everything was great. The room attendant was very helpful and courteous. My daughter and I had taken a cruise in 1998 the year "The Magic" was built. This vacation was even better. We truly enjoyed every minute. We did realize that it would be a lot easier if we were younger.

Disney Perhaps Losing it's Magic? by michcohen

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Transatlantic

This was our 7th Disney cruise, our second two week cruise, but our first transatlantic. While we enjoyed the trip, I wouldn't say we loved it. We specifically chose this trip, because of the large number of seas days, and the ports that we hadn't visited before.

 

Disney has some things they do well, and continue to do well.  Rotational dining with your servers following you from restaurant to restaurant has always been a hit with us.  Meeting the characters is always fun, and you're never too old to hug Mickey! However, we found the entertainment lacking this time, and particularly on sea days. Every day was too similar to the next, and consisted mostly of movies, a quiz (or two), and the adult show at night; there was nothing unique or even new. Many of the acts that we enjoy, like John Charles, have over the years become stale.  The jokes are the same and the show's format never varies.  Disney is well known for it's Broadway style shows, but after having seen most of them numerous times before we didn't even attend some performances.  We also found the food was hit or miss this time, and there were nights we struggled to find something to eat.  Menus that advertised regional foods were also apparently confused at to what region we were in (Russian Honey Cake in England...) The kids were in Vibe (the teen club) this trip, and for the first time they kept saying "nothing was going on." They spent a considerable amount of time in the cabin watching TV, which was unusual for them.

 

Also unusual this time were the port excursions.  Ponta Delgada's excursion was not as advertised.  The guide in Amsterdam walked so fast we couldn't take pictures (tourist here people!).  The excursion to Leeds Castle didn't allow enough time to actually see the castle properly.  In Portland we didn't do an excursion (we met up with family), and being familiar with Copenhagen we didn't need a tour either.  Surprisingly in Copenhagen, Disney only provided a shuttle to the town center, and nothing to Tivoli.  The walk to Tivoli was only 20-30 minutes, but late at night it wasn't a comfortable walk. We let Disney know our issues, and they said some of the tour companies were new this time...it felt like we were experimental guinea pigs.

 

We love DCL, but we didn't book another cruise onboard (also a first for us).  I think we're going to try Royal next year.

I really liked all the activities and stuff to do on this boat. Size doesn’t matter this ship is like no other! The staterooms and pool areas are also fun too. Especially now that the ship has been “reimagined” !!

Fantastic and Memorable. by grayt1172237935

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)

Disney shows, wait staff in restaurants, and overall enthusiasm of staff.  Great experience for our grandchildren (11& 8).  The cabin with pullman bed is awesome for sleeping arrangements.

My first cruise. Ever!!!!... by denise6344

Sail date: /
Ship: Disney Magic

My first cruise. Ever!!!! Disney and Disney Magic did not disappoint. My children are 15 and 11. They enjoyed the Disney characters. I will never understand why people being such young children. They will get very little enjoyment out of this trip. If you are traveling with children and they love Disney, then they will love this. I would not have taken my children if they were under the age of 8. I found the food delicious, the service impeccable and the ship lovely. I would have loved to spend more time at Castaway Cay. Grand Cayman was a bummer. 6-7 total ships at port that day, making the tiny island crowded.

Sail date: /
Ship: Disney Magic

Welll first and foremost the food was absolutely delicious, services were great, ship was very clean but 90 percent of activities were based for children very few adult activity, I understand it's a Disney cruise however it would have been nice for some adult things, all activities end at 12 am. They do have a private adult on deck area but not much fun since everything was so mellow,no music to sing along. Great ship for family with younger children but super boring if you have a teenager or just going with a partner. If you are looking for fun singing to the sun comes up or just looking to win extra money from the casino this is not ship (FYI no casino on this ship)

Great trip by Disneymagic1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Thought it was wonderful.  Staff was great, food was good.  Ship was clean.  Would do it again.  Enjoyed the whole trip very much.  Liked the fact that there was no need to dress fancy for dinner.  Liked the children's menu that contained things that they liked and would eat.

Disney Magic Brings the Magic by traceyep343424

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Wonderful Service, Wonderful Food!  The ship is beautiful and classy.  Even though the Magic is the smallest ship in the Disney fleet, it doesn't feel small.  It also has a big advantage when stopping in Castaway Cay, fewer passengers means less people on the island!  Key West was a great stop!

 

We traveled without kids and were seated at dinners with 3 other couples who were in the same situation.  That was a great surprise, we met great people and were able to enjoy kid-free meals!

 

This was our first cruise out of the Port of Miami and Customs took MUCH longer than Port Canaveral.  This has nothing to do with Disney, but a lack of staff by Border Patrol.  Only 3 people checking out 3000 passengers!
