Transatlantic on the Disney Magic

Sail Date: May 2011
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Other
We travelled from Dayton to Orlando by plane and took the shuttle to the port. At the port, we were greeted with massive swarms of "love bugs", so the outside decks of the ship were closed. The beginning of the cruise was humid, stuffy and uncomfortable.

By the second day of the cruise, the decks had finally been cleared of insect debris and it was "safe" to come outside. The "outside" mainly consisted of pools - the adult side was great, but far from the fast food.

Food on the ship was plentiful and I was pleased to see healthy choices. It was not always convenient to get non- buffet food as the hours were short and the time zone changes came pretty fast. The food and service were good throughout with excellent service. Except for the 2 hour meal periods, the variety was limited however.

Entertainment consisted of photo-ops with characters and the requisite ships photographers, old Disney movies in a variety of venues, dance classes and a couple of shows More per day. The ships cast was excellent but I found the others mediocre. Specifically, the comedians spent way too much time "bullying" individuals in the audience. Why can't Disney combat bullying instead of glorifying it?

The ports were very good and I enjoyed time off the boat.

For me, the cruise would have been better if there was a library on board, some good comfortable chairs for reading and a variety of food options during the times when the restaurants were closed. Less
