Overall the Disney Cruise Magic was a memorable cruise. From the service to the accommodation and the meals were absolutely delicious. A very interesting concept for dining was the rotation of restaurants during your stay. This provided a different setting, and theme each night but at the same time you kept your waiter as they moved with you as well. They really made meal time special and fun for the children by creating different characters using the napkins. Our grandchildren got a kick out of this each night, and looked forward to the newest inspiration presented.
On that note the kids really had fun and remember the Academy as the best part of their cruise vacation. They loved all the activities, games and interaction with the activity leaders. They got them involved in scavenger hunts throughout the ship, and dressing up to go trick or treating, because it was Halloween time.
The only draw back to this cruise or should I say caveat, is the Disney characters. They are not as visible or as interactive as you would be led to believe from the commercials. They are to be found at a particular location and a scheduled time, for you to line up and get your quick photo with them. This was a bit disappointing because it then becomes more commercial than an actual experience. Therefore when the grandchildren were asked what was their most memorable time on the Disney Cruise. Mickey Mouse or company was not mentioned.
Very spacious and clean. Bathroom was a fair size to as compared to some other cruise lines.
It was the usual port with all the shops, locals begging you to buy. Done this so many times it gets tired.
The cruise line provided a great, convenient location and transport to a beautiful beach. The lunch they provided was very nicely prepared and they are very organized at feeding so many people and yet meeting any individual needs if necessary. Five Star Rating for this
