This weekend has been such a good time on the Disney Magic that now leaves from Galveston. The experience so far has been SO MUCH FUN… or how they say on the ship ‘A MAGICAL TIME’. It’s the first time Ted and I have ever been on a cruise, so we didn’t know what to expect.
Most people we talked to leading up to the cruise said the food is great and you can have it whenever you feel like it. This is true, your appetite will be taken care of. I recommend the Animator's Palate. We had dinner their last night, it was cool to see how the animation comes alive by Disney while enjoying a yummy meal, and of course w/my sweet tooth, the double chocolate cake ROCKED!!
(Ted and I on our stateroom veranda on the Disney Magic...THIS ROCKS!)
There was a special appearance by Wizard Mickey who kept the party going. BIG YOU ROCKS to Ebrahim and Francesca who were our servers, and will be taking care of us though out the cruise when it comes to sit down dinners. This is the Disney Cruise line way, so you have someone who gets to know you, your likes and dislikes of food and make each dining experience even better than the one before, which will be hard for them to top, since they Rocked it last night. Check out the game that Ebrahim showed us. Can you figure it out ?
Coming back to the room from a nice dinner was even nicer finding your bed turned down with chocolate waiting for you. We have noticed that the crew on the Disney Magic take the time to do the little things that make your time on the Disney Magic, truly ‘Magical’.
You also get to experience a bit of culture from all over the world, since the Disney Magic has people who work on the ship from 63 different countries. So far we’ve met folks from New Zealand, Bulgaria, Croatia, South Africa, United Kingdom, Wales…doesn’t’ that ROCK! They are so nice and accommodating and sincerely want to see everyone having a good time. Whether it’s family time, adult only or kid only time, there are tons of things to do on the ship for everyone.
This morning we had a bit of Italy for brunch at the adult only restaurant,Palo. Italian cuisine for dinner that Rocks one of the most elaborate brunches I’ve seen. From pastries, to cheeses, fruits, meats and desserts, made to order dishes… they even go out of their way if you have food issues. I’m looking forward to having dinner there . I’ve heard the chocolate soufflé is to die for. Of course the sweet tooth in me will put that to the test.
Whether it’s a broadway style show with Big Time Disney flair, spending time w/ the kids at the Mickey or Goofy pool, enjoy some time away from the kids while they are taking over the 5th Deck with activities for kids of all ages, while you enjoy the adult only pool… There is something for everyone! It’s AWESOME to see families together, smiling, happy, and having fun. It is Magical!
Some extra bonus magic is the Vista spa that offers fabulous adult relaxation time. De-Stress with a bamboo or hot stone massage, a seaweed wrap, facial and even acupuncture, that can really relieve the stress, and make your body feel good and healthy. Make sure you check out the ‘Rain Forest Relaxation’ area and take over one of their heated stoned chairs! AMAZING! I need one at home!
Right now we’ve had what they call sea days. There are endless things to do during ship time, and we are looking forward to checking out the land ports that we willdock at: Grand Cayman / Cayman Islands, Costa Maya and Cozumel.
Tonight, we’ll take in a show in the Walt Disney Theater that has start of the art everything so your experience makes you feel like you are part of the show, followed by dinner at Parrot Cay for the Prince and Princess dinner! I’m hoing with my Prince Charming Ted!
Make sure you are listening to me all this week, from 10-3pm, as I do my show from deck #9. You will have a chance to win a cruise for 4 on the Disney Magic setting sail on October 20th! I’ve got a cruise everyday, Monday-Friday, this week that’s up for grabs. It’s going to be a Big Lunch Hour this week! Listen so you can experience a “Magical Time’ first hand on the Disney Magic leaving Galveston.
Looking forward to Tuesday’s party with Mickey’ Pirates In the Caribbean and Buccaner Blast Fireworks. Disney Cruise Line’s ships are the only ones who do fireworks at sea. THAT ROCKS!!
