This was my 8th DCL cruise and my third time on the Magic. I just adore this classic ship. The larger ones are nice, but not intimate like the Magic and Wonder. We noticed our last cruise on the Magic had a bit of a tired menu and the ... Read more

The cruise was a great experience overall. My husband and two daughters loved it. We went with the grandparents, uncles and cousins. The entertainment on board is the best. Don't miss any shows at the big theater. Our 5 year old loved ... Read more

This was our 2nd cruise and I will admit I was geared up for disappointment based on my previous cruise (Carnival). I could not have been more wrong about what to expect by sailing with Disney. From the moment we arrived at the airport to ... Read more

I researched all cruise lines & ships that focus on kids, because I was taking my 8 yr old grandson on his first cruise, for Christmas. Disney was the winner. And Disney Magic had activities I thought he'd enjoy, as well as island ... Read more

The ship was amazing and very clean. There was always a seat available when you went to the buffet or pool deck, even though the ship was totally full. There were tons of Disney characters around the ship, but even when you reserved ... Read more

I have sailed on 4 cruise lines, but this was my first time with Disney. The food and room were definitely the best we have ever experienced. Our room (standard) was 3X the size of our family room on Norwegian last year. With two young ... Read more

We were excited when Disney decided to return to NYC. We had previously sailed on the Magic in 2012 to Canada from NYC. This was a very different cruise with 4 sea days, 1 day at Castaway Cay and 1 day at Port Canaveral (really at Walt ... Read more

With a 5 year old we thought it was time to try a Disney Cruise. The cruise itself was good, it just wasn't any better than Carnival, Royal Caribbean or Norwegian. For triple the price I think we just expected more than normal. The food ... Read more

This was my family's first Disney Cruise. (2 kids - 10 & 8 year old) We sailed from New York's Manhattan Cruise Terminal (parked our car there - no problem, easy and convenient. It was $200 for the 5 nights). Check in was easy. We ... Read more

We were on the DVC member's cruise, so this was not your average trip. This older ship has been re-habbed & is in great shape, including updates to 1 dining room and to the outdoor children's pool area. We travel without children and ... Read more

Disney World is known by creating magic and by providing customer service that is by far the best in the world, thinking of exceeding that, it is impossible but there is one place that tops it by 1000 times. On September 28th we (my hubby, ... Read more

This was our third Disney Cruise. Had it not been for poor experiences on shore excursions I would have given it an excellent rating. This ship, the Disney port staff and ship staff were excellent. In our opinion Disney Cruise Lines ... Read more

This was our third cruise for our family of 6 (4 boys, 4,9,10 & 12) with the DCL, but our first on the Magic. We have been on the Wonder and Fantasy in the past. We had adjoining veranda rooms on deck 6 which gave us plenty of space in ... Read more

We loved our cruise on the Disney Magic. Our stateroom with a verandah was a good size for a family of four, and the hospitality staff that kept the stateroom clean was amazing (twice a day refresher). The food onboard was above average ... Read more

Overall appearance - Disney Cruise Line is a must for fans of Disney. Having visited Disney World, Florida and Disneyland, Paris we had high expectations and being first time cruisers we were unsure of what to expect. Of course Disney ... Read more

We switched to this cruise when Disney changed the itinerary of the 12 night cruise to remove Greece and Turkey. This cruise allowed us more time to tour on our own and in our opinion adequately explored the same area as the new 12 night ... Read more

This cruise was incredible from embarkation to disembarkation. Our extended family group of 14 (ranging in age from 4 to 74) enjoyed every moment of the week we spent on this ship. There was always something to do for everyone -- from ... Read more

First time cruiser and really impressed with the experience. Traveled as a family of four and the standard and attention to detail of the ship was excellent. Great on-board, and off ship shore, activities that suited all ages in our party. ... Read more
