Disney Magic Cruise - Footnotes
Not a fan of reading long posts? This one is for you. Enjoy.
Quick footnotes of our Disney Magic, Marvel Day at Sea, 5-day cruise.
The boat. We chose the Disney Magic. We wanted to cruise this classic before they retire it. It's the smallest of the fleet. We knew how to maneuver within hours of boarding.
The length. We chose a 5-day cruise. Our ports were Castaway Cay and Cozumel, Mexico. This cruise was a Marvel Day at Sea Cruise that left out of Miami. An easy in and easy out port.
Marvel Day at Sea is epic. If you love the Marvel Universe, you will NOT be disappointed. We met all of our favorite characters and gained some new ones as well (looking at you Dr. Strange). From morning to the evening show it was everything you could ever hope for.
Food. It's a cruise, the food is never going to be what people want, but there is plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, Mickey waffles and some incredible addictive soups. There is also an Ice Cream machine that works overtime and usually dies by the last day, so get there early.
Accommodations. Spacious and came with a curtain that you can pull across for privacy from the munchkins. We were in room 8088 and loved it. Get the balcony; it's not scary for the little ones, the door is tough for an adult to open.
Shows. EPIC. Don't skip.
Nightlife. I skipped and drank wine outside looking at the Stars. It was win-win.
Adults and Kids. They can live in unity or apart with ease. Adults have their an exclusive pool, lounge and restaurants. Kids can kick their parents to the curb (which often happened in my case) and head into kids club.
Cleanliness. Damn is all I have to say. That was the cleanest vacation I've ever been on. Germaphobes, this cruise is for you.
Concierge. Worth every penny. Andy, Blanca and Kameesha became family and gave us all their ENERGY (you'll get it if you meet them). Private elevator, people to book or cancel things last minute, friends to have a conversation with, private and free bar, better popcorn for the movies, sunscreen and the best loofa ever invented.
Worth it? Yes.
