Woodfield Walker Magical Cruise

Sail Date: July 2010
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Dover

This was my husband and mine third Disney Magic cruise but the first for our two daughters and their families. This cruise came about due to my mother leaving us a legacy when she died earlier this year and i couldn't think of anything more special than spending family time on a magical holiday Our first Tinkerbell sprinkling was our three cabins were upgraded from 3 gty Cat 12 cabins to 3 Cat 7 Navigator Veranda's - absolutely out of this world. Second Tinkerbell sprinkling was when we became Disney's family of the day and we were announced and we got to go through everything and be first on the ship - a very special event for all of us. The whole family just loved the cruise - both daughters are now blaming me for a new addiction - cruises!!! We loved the sail away party, us grandparents loved using Cove Cafe this time (we always do way but it was nice to get away and have some quiet time!!), the kids loved the kids clubs and the youngest grandson seemed to really enjoy the nursery. More Our servers were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us - whatever we requested they went out of their way to deliver - the kids loved them and they seemed to love the kids. Our room steward was a star and he had an extra big tip for the way he looked after our three cabins so well. The shows that we went to were brilliant - the daughters really loved the nightclubs.

Cherbourg was our first stop - didn't get off Vigo was second stop - see review Lisbon was third stop - see review Cadiz was fourth stop - I just LOVE Cadiz - its my favourite and my husbands too. love the back streets, the cathedral (don't miss going up into the tower for 4 Euros - the views are 360 and are incredible), the gardens, - just love it. This time we visited the beach as it was the first time any of the kids had been to the seaside - very hot but we had a lovely time. We were going to use the HOHO bus but there were other ships in port that day and the lines and wait time were stupid as there is no shade and we had three small children with us - so we got our money back and used taxis which worked out half the cost of the HOHO bus! Gibraltar was our final stop - see review Less

Cabin review: Disney Magic Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah Deck Five 5632

our cabin 5632 was perfect. Comfy bed, loved the navigator balcony (perfect for framing those sunset photos!!!!), plenty of room for everything we had with us. Not too far from the elevators.

Port and Shore Excursions


Another favourite port. This trip we didn't do the Rock tour but we did that last time and would highly recommend it - we used the taxi tour and loved it. We just love the main shopping street in Gibraltar - it has such a buzz and atmosphere to it - love seeing the living statues and watching the world go by while sitting down at a cafe sipping a coffee. This was the youngest daughters favourite too


We didn't venture very far here and maybe this was why we really didn't like Lisbon. We found it to be quite dirty and there was a lot of rubbish about which is such a shame as it looked so promising from the ship when we docked - the views of the hills etc were lovely.

My husband and I enjoyed Vigo - we only explored a little bit but what we saw we liked - we went along a few backstreets and really enjoyed looking up the little alleys etc. We stopped for a couple of coffee's back towards the port and then spent some time taking some photos of the views.
