After much anticipation, we boarded the Disney Magic on March 27th, Easter Sunday, for a 4-day cruise to Castaway Cay and the Bahamas. Boarding was smooth and the quality of the food at lunch - a buffet - was excellent. The cabin was ... Read more

We had a navigator's verandah cabin and loved it. There was plenty of storage for the three of us - we did not even use some of the drawer space. My 5 year old grand daughter had a ball; she loved the character meets and seeing the ... Read more

My husband and I decided to take our first cruise ever on the Disney Magic without our kids. Honestly, we hardly even noticed the kids on the ship the entire cruise. Disney sure knows how to keep them occupied. We flew in the night ... Read more

Our family of 13 (including 5 grandsons aged 8 months thru 6 years) just returned from a fabulous trip on the Disney Magic. The itinerary was not great, but the overall experience was amazing. Castaway Cay was fun. The water a bit cold ... Read more

First of all, our transfer representative from Miami airport was not where she was supposed to meet us. (Baggage carousel). The worst part was that the employee told her supervisor that SHE was there and we were not. This was an outright ... Read more

We live in Florida, so Disney in general is no big deal to us. Don't get me wrong, Disney does what they do very well, and if you're a Disney fan, you should definitely try one of their cruises, if you can afford it. We tend to go for the ... Read more

Overall the Disney Cruise Magic was a memorable cruise. From the service to the accommodation and the meals were absolutely delicious. A very interesting concept for dining was the rotation of restaurants during your stay. This provided ... Read more

We did our first Disney Cruise and expectation were high but it actually turned out to be an average cruise. In my opinion it was overpriced for what was provided. The only advantage of Disney is having the Characters on the boat and if ... Read more

First let me say that overall we definetly enjoyed the cruise. We were on the Disney Magic, which is approx 17 years old, and this is obvious when you board. Perhaps some of the let down was on me, as I set my expectations based on the ... Read more

Background Information Last year on the Mediterranean DCL cruise, we played with the idea of booking a new trip onboard, this time to Norway. The idea nearly felt a bit preposterous - as we were both native Norwegians living in Norway - ... Read more

In a nutshell: It was awesome. On a scale of 1-100, I'd give it a 97. The cruise had high expectations -- we were dipping into savings and pulling the kids (7 and 5 years old) out of school as we felt this kind of length of cruise and ... Read more
