Ship Facts: Disney Magic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Disney Magic Deck Plans
Back-to-Back Disney Cruise of Seniors With No Children
We did back-to-back Western followed by an Eastern Caribbean Cruise, because we enjoy cruising on the Disney Magic. Obviously, we are what you would call Disney fanatics. During the first week we went with friends, and stayed for the second cruise. I would rate this as our best ever Disney Cruise. Embarkation was a snap, and we were on board the Disney Magic at noon.

The staff on the entire ship truly made us feel at home. The weather is prefect for those who enjoy low humidity and temperatures ranging from the middle 60s to the very low 80s. I could believe the improvement on the food and menu. I would have to say that the menu and food quality was superior to Celebrity Century, which we had cruised on earlier during the year. On lobster night you actually got a whole lobster. The food was never cold and seasoned appropriately.

Because the Disney Magic has a quiet pool for adults, a coffee house for adults, exercise equipment just for adults, etc., you never really noticed the kids, who made up 40% of the 2000 passengers.

During the second week we received treats before every meal, because we a staff member recommended us for this. There was no extra charge at all.

The category 11 inside stateroom for two people is more than adequate. We normally go inside cabin so we can cruise an extra week. In addition, an inside cabin is nice and dark, and you can always get some extra sleep in.

Normally, my day consisted of the following: 6:10 a.m., get up; exercise for 1 hour in the spa area; then a 30 minute swim in the adult pool; followed by 10 - 20 minutes in the whirlpool. After cleaning up we would have a late breakfast at Luminare's. The rest of the day we would enjoy the Cove Cafe area, and of course either do some reading or attend various adult sessions put on by Disney.

It is my impression that very few people really take the time to enjoy all the Disney Magic has to offer. We were so rested and relaxed after two weeks, we signed up for another back-to-back cruise for the same time next year. Once again we received a 10% discount for booking on board, and will receive $200 in credits for each week.
