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

Loved the Magic and the refurbishment was nicely done. Food better than expected especially at dinners which were superb! Pirate party was great. Good guest services but they can't fix everything (like screaming neighbors). they need ... Read more

This was our first cruise and our family had a terrific time on the Disney Magic. The ship is 17 years old and the condition and cleanliness of the ship was impeccable. The staff was just what I expected from the Disney family, fun, ... Read more

After a year of grumbling about being 'dragged' onto a DISNEY cruise by my wife, daughter, and grand-daughter, I have to admit that this was the best of the three cruises I’ve been on. I have to start by debunking a suspicion ... Read more

Disney does a lot of things right, which is why they cost a significant amount more than other cruise lines. This one however, was a bust. It was partially our fault for thinking that just because a room cost $4K it would be nice (inside ... Read more

Everything was wonderful. Food was great, servers were outstanding. Every one loved it. No complaints other than elevators were super small and children in swim diapers couldn't even use the small kiddie pool. They could only use the ... Read more

We are Castaways Club members and, as such, have been on several Disney Cruises. In fact, we will not cruise on any other cruise line. Having said that, our recent cruise on the Disney Magic was disappointing. The ship is in dire need ... Read more

We traveled over Spring Break with our family of four - mom, dad, and two boys ages 13 and 11. As first time Disney cruisers, we were a little worried it may be geared toward a younger crowd and that we would be fighting off character ... Read more

I knew what to expect of Disney after our 3-night trip on the Dream in January, but I could not have believed that the Magic would find its way into our hearts as our second home! Embarcation was a breeze, we arrived at the port about 1pm ... Read more

We cruised on the Disney Magic during March Break. We were a party of 10 with 4 children ranging from 4 - 17, 2 sets of parents and 1 set of grandparents. There was so much breathing room on the ship. Lounge chairs were always available. ... Read more

First let me say the Disney Magic ship was beautiful. I have taken many cruises and I have always loved anything Disney. We did not go with any children and as I expected, there wasn't much for adults like on other cruises. They did have ... Read more

Our 25 Jan. 2015 cruise on Allure of the Seas was immediately followed by a family cruise on Disney Magic, departing on 1 February, so this provides an excellent opportunity to compare and contrast. First and foremost it is safe to say ... Read more

You may wonder why a person who hates television, movies, and companies like Disney would go on a Disney cruise. Don't ask. Despite my warped view, I think I can still offer a somewhat objective view of the cruise experience, but take my ... Read more

Disney is just our favourite cruise line for our family (2 young boys). We have cruised a few times with Disney but the service this time was far and away the best we've experienced to date. We were with 3 other families and all of us had ... Read more
