Disney Revitalizes Magic

October 20, 2003
Disney Magic, fresh out of dry dock, has acquired a bit of a new look, which, says a cruise line spokeswoman, will focus not just on family-oriented features, but also on attractions and amenities that will appeal solely to adults.
New twists added to the ship include "Cove Cafe," an adult-oriented coffee bar. Adjacent to the adult-only pool area, the cafe will include Internet/email stations, gourmet coffees and other specialty drinks, and light fare. Diversions, located on "Beat Street," Disney Magic's all-adult evening entertainment "district," is the name of the ship's new sports pub and, beyond big screens showing major competitions via satellite, there will be theme nights – football tailgating, British pub, etc. It takes over from the former "OffBeat" bar.
Teen-related features have also gotten an overhaul. Gone is "Common Grounds," the original teen facility. Replacing it is The Stack, a larger teen club, with giant screen television for movies and a dedicated dancing room. It's housed in the ship's cosmetic smokestack (ESPN Skybox, which formerly occupied the space, got the boot).
