Disney Magic Cruises
Disney Magic is the sister ship to Disney Wonder and made her maiden voyage in 1998, making her older than both Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. However, the vessel was upgraded in 2013 when a multi-million pound refit made changes to the restaurants, lounges, cabins and children’s areas. She is also one of the smaller ships in the fleet, with a capacity for 2,400 and weighing in at 45,000 tons less than the two newer ships. The ship’s décor celebrates the grand days of cruising and her art deco style creates a nostalgic feeling that takes you back to the days when cruising was the only way to travel between Europe and the Americas.
Obviously, there are also plenty of Disney’s signature touches that really help the ship live up to its name. As soon as you step on board, you are greeted by a magnificent three-storey atrium with a sculpture of Helmsman Mickey in the centre. Not only does this grab your attention from the start, it lets guests know that they are guaranteed to have some fun during their voyage.
Being a Disney Cruise Line ship, there are plenty of public areas that are aimed at families and children. The pool area, youth clubs and entertainment venues will ensure your kids have a smile on their face constantly. They’ll even love Disney Magic’s horn, as it sounds the tune to ‘When You Wish upon a Star’. Not to neglect the adults, there are a number of exclusive areas where they can get away from the children for a bit. Adult-only restaurants and bars are the perfect places to spend an evening as a couple or relax with a drink for a while.
Disney Magic currently spends her time in Northern Europe during our summer and on 3 to 8-night Caribbean and Bahamas itineraries in the winter months. The latter usually include a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
