We did a little exploring as soon as we hopped onboard the Disney Magic. For a ship that's not far from its 15th birthday, it is very well-maintained. Regular Disney cruisers are very attached to the good ole Magic. It's the baby that started it all.
Looking down onto the Goofy pool deck.
The Funnelvision screen near Goofy's pool. I took it as a good omen that they were playing my very favorite Goofy animated short - The Art of Skiing.
Another look at the goofy deck, all prepared for the start of a sunny and warm winter cruise.
The mickey hand kid's slide!
So, I absolutely LOVED the beautiful Disney Dream, but I have to say that Quiet Cove, the adult area on the Magic, beats the pants off of the Dream's adult area by the same name. The Dream may have had better/more abundant seating, but the pools and jacuzzis were way better on this ship!
One of the corner jacuzzi's at the adult pool.
Looking down on the adult pool from the upper deck.
Goofy's Galley is one of 3 casual counter service food spots on the pool deck. Goofy's is the healthier option of the 3, specializing in salads, fruit, and fresh sandwiches and wraps. In the mornings, if you just want to grab a quick breakfast, they have cereal and yogurt available.
Next to Goofy's Galley is, of course, the soft serve station! Matt was on a mission to find the ice cream as soon as we stepped foot onto the ship.
"Now, our trip has officially started!"
And just in case you don't feel guilty enough over indulging in some soft serve, there's a big pile of bananas and oranges right next to the machines.
Looking down onto the Mickey pool. If you are not traveling with children, stay away from this deck. Far... far away.
Signature mickey funnels.
One more look at the goofy pool and stage area.
Hallway leading to the Walt Disney theatre. Preludes is a snack shop and bar that is open before showtimes.
Every morning, bright and early, we hit the Vista Spa gym to work out. This is the place where you can endulge in a number of luxurious spa treatments such as manicures, facials, massages, or spend some time in the famous Rainforest Room.
Or you can torture yourself like we did and take advantage of the fully-equipped gym. I only snapped this one photo on the way to dinner one night, but it had a full set of free weights, a machine for every muscle you can think of, and about a billion treadmills and ellipticals. The shades are drawn in this photo, but the gym is located on the top deck all the way forward, and in the morning you have a fabulous view of the bow of the ship and the ocean below.
Looking down into the main atrium, with the entrance to Lumiere's, one of the rotational dining rooms.
Chandelier, although.. I don't think it actually lights up!
From the side.
Fake "show teeth for the camera" smile.
I have lots more photos of the inside of the ship that are better suited for other posts, so stay tuned!
