CruiseMates' Readers Cruise Reviews


Disney Cruise Line Disney Magic Western Caribbean January 15, 2005

I recently had the pleasure of sailing aboard Disney's Magic. I want to start by saying I am so glad I sailed before I read some of the reviews. Based on some of the reviews, I would have have been "leary" of traveling with Disney, but thankfully, I experienced the "Magic" myself. The whole experience, from when the staff member met us at the terminal after flying into Orlando until we got off the bus back at the airport the following week, was more than I could have ever expected. If I thought I wanted something, someone was there ready to bring it to me.

The water was a little rough leaving Port Canaveral, but come to find out from one of the staff, it usually is rough with the currents changing, but we were assured that weather permitting, the waters would calm down...and they did! Although we were not able to dock in Grand Cayman or Castaway Cay because of winds, the Captain and staff were extememly apologetic and had onboard activities ready to roll within minutes of notifying us.

There were endless activites and food, food, food! The shows the staff put on (in particular the 60's night, 70's night, 80's night and especially the finale on the last night) were the most entertaining shows I have ever been to, at land or sea!

There is something for everyone, whether you are 3 or 83. I traveled with 10 members of my family that ranged in age from 3 to 55 and every last one of us had the time of our lives. Members of my family have cruised on other lines, but Disney by far, exceeded all of our expectations. I highly recommend sailing with Disney!
