Overall Member Rating
Disney Magic 7-night Souther Caribbean
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
The food I would rate at about a 3 out of 5 stars. It was okay but I was disappointed in that there were no 24 hours food places open, most closed at 12am. The layout of the ship is nice with hidden Mickey's everywhere.
Disney Characters were also often around for pictures, pictures and more pictures. The daily newsletter told where Characters would be and what time. My mother and wife spend over $400 on pictures!!!
We had a family inside state room for all 4 of us. The couch was a pull out bed, there was a pull down twin for our daughter and my wife and I shared the double bed. There was a curtain that pulled down splitting the small room in half for minimal privacy. The bathroom had square tiles that were showing there age. Overall, I felt a little more cramped in this room compared to the Carnival inside state rooms.
Entertainment onboard was decent, a lot of Disney themed princess shows and a couple contract acts (a ventriloquist & a magician).
Our last day was a day at sea and fireworks at night were amazing!!! Another thing unique to Disney.
We got back to Port Canaveral on the 26th of December. Disembarking went smoothly. Post Cruise, We went to a packed Disney World and stayed at the Animal Kingdom lodge.
Overall the cruise was great. It was comparable to passed Carnival cruises (though more costly). The crowd consisted of mostly families and there were lots of kids as expected. Great family vacation!!! Less
Cabin review: 10A Deluxe Inside Stateroom
Cabins were small compared to what we are used to on Carnival. The tile in the bathrooms are showing their age. But we did not spend much time in the cabin.Read All Deluxe Inside Stateroom (10A) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Our last stop was Castaway Cay on Christmas day. We did have a parasailing tour booked but it was cancelled due to wind and rain. Instead we rented bikes and explored the small island on bikes. We had a good time riding bikes and had a good cookout meal on the island. That was really neat and something unique to Disney as well!!!
