Disney Magic AAA+

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston
As a couple with no kids, every aspect of Disney suited our needs perfectly. Adult only pool/hot tubs were beautiful with plenty of relaxing spaces and even with children in other areas of the ship, such as the dining room, they seemed very well-behaved and easy to avoid. Cocktail lounges were elegant and kid-free. Every meal we had on board was great, lobster was best we've ever had, seafood lunch buffet at Parroy Cay was remarkable, and brunch and dinner at Palo, where we paid a small upcharge was worth every penny. Our dining room staff, Genesis, Antonio, and Neno made us and everyone around us have great dinner every night. I can't imagine finding more accomodating hosts and incredible food at any land based restaurant or other ship.

The general stage shows were great and with good offering of Adult themed entertainment at night, including great piano bar at Sessions and comedians. Great selection on movies on TV as well as beautiful Buena Vista Theater with stadium More seating and movies outside all day and night at the pool on the Jumbo Screen. Drink and wine prices were reasonable and soda drinks are included and available at mealtimes and a big station by the rear pool.

Our cabin steward, Loyd, was impeccable with the cabin on Disney more like mini suites. Lots of room, divided sitting room(kids sleeping area) and bedroom, nice balcony and 2 bathroom area in the room.

In general, Disney does not disappoint, maybe a little more pricey than other lines, but worth it. Plenty to do for every age group. For families with kids, I can't imagine a better vacation, we have already booked our next sailing! Less

Port and Shore Excursions

Costa Maya is clean, organized, shopping area with a few overpriced bars, restaurants. Would recommend a tour, or cab to town for snorkeling and cheaper drinks.

Disney Magic docks downtown, unlike larger ships, so perfect for shopping and wandering around. Cozumel is great stop, just ignore the constant vendors and hawkers. Or take a cab to Playa Corona, great close by beach and bar.

Had a great time on the Aquaboats. Pretty adventerous and high speed, so good way to avoid kids and crowds. Disney shore excursion prices actually seemed less than what we've seen on other lines.
