Disney Magic May 10, 2013.

We booked this cruise 10 days before the sail date. We were lucky to secure a balcony. I am a believer of arriving at the port the day before the sail date. For some reason, possibly due to last minute booking, my ...

To be fair, I will put the good parts of the cruise first: The shows were very nice and well done. The singers were awesome and I was really impressed that some of the Disney dancers actually had some meat on ...
