The magic, excitement and enchantment of Disney. The scenic beauty, high life and cultural riches of the Caribbean. Imagine these two experiences bound together in one unforgettable getaway cruise vacation via Disney Magic Destinations. The most fun to be had on the water may be found aboard Disney Magic, a luxurious ship with loads of activities for adults, teens and children. The Disney Magic Cruise Ship also includes several dining rooms and various styles of staterooms tailored to fit your specific needs - all available on cruises that whisk you and your family away to fabulous ports of call throughout the Caribbean and Mexico.
Disney Magic Destinations
The Disney Magic cruise ship calls Port Canaveral her home port, from which she embarks to various Disney Magic Destinations in the Caribbean islands, the Panama Canal and the Mexican Riviera.
Seven or ten day cruises to the Caribbean pull out of Port Canaveral and sail first on the Disney Magic Cruise Ship for the place where the locals have taken their laid-back lifestyle and elevated it to an art form. The "Conch Republic" is an easygoing place with many bars and restaurants, an exciting aquarium and the old haunts of Ernest Hemingway. There are many outdoor activities here - swimming, wave-running, and snorkeling around through the coral.
The next stop among Disney Magic Destinations is St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. The beaches are true gems, including one rated by National Geographic as one of the Ten Best in the world. Take the Skyline Drive along the mountains that affords views of the forests and the seas below. Take a shopping tour in historic downtown St. Thomas of the amazing duty-free deals, and strike out on a small sailboat that allows you to check out the coastline on a tour of Turtle Cove and Buck Island - perfect snorkeling spots during your Disney Magic Cruise Ship vacation.
For a saucy taste of the West Indies, St. Maarten remains a popular spot among Disney Magic Destinations. St. Maarten offers the unique mix of Caribbean, Dutch, French and African cultures. French and Dutch architecture abound on different sides of the island, and the blend also is evident in the spicy, cosmopolitan cuisine. The Butterfly Farm is a favorite attraction, where in an enclosed area with landscaped gardens adults and children are delighted to see hundreds of butterflies, including some very rare species from all over the world.
The verdant hills of St. Lucia jut up dramatically from the coast line, most notable of these are the twin volcanic peaks in the south of the island, the Pitons. The capital of Castries has been burned by fire so many times that much of its historical buildings have been lost, but there are still a few regions where the old French architecture remains. Come view these truly amazing sights when traveling to Disney Magic Destinations.
Antigua is said to have 365 beaches, one for each day of the year. The coral reefs house old shipwrecks that together make for wonderful snorkeling and diving during your Disney Magic Cruse Ship vacation. There are many historic sites bundled into the English Harbour, including many restored buildings, a dockyard and a naval base and in St. John's there is a twin-spired Cathedral with an interior made with pitch pine to help support the structure against natural disasters.
Visit a largely undeveloped island paradise in Castaway Cay, Bahamas. Learn about the local ecology on an eco-kayak tour, and learn about the fascinating Bahamian people of the island. The water is so clear you can see many fish swimming around in the coral under your kayak. There also are banana boat rides and parasailing tours. Enjoy a day of splashing in the sun and the warm waters, and top if off with an outdoor barbecue via your Disney Magic Cruise Ship vacation.
Disney Magic Destinations also include extraordinary tours of Panama Canal regions, which stop in the Caribbean and the Mexican Riviera on her way between Port Canaveral and Los Angeles. Stop off in Castaway Cay and in the intriguing island of Curacao. Curacao is known for its super-friendly people, its balmy climate, and the sticky-sweet orange liqueur that today is often sold in the blue variety. Admire the walls of Fort Amsterdam in this Dutch Antilles island, and enjoy the fresh fruits hauled in on boat from Venezuela every morning during your Disney Magic Cruise Ship vacation.
Cruising the Panama Canal is an exciting and educational tour among Disney Magic Destinations. Though it is just 50 miles long, this wonder of the man-made world saves ships traveling from coast to coast 8,000 miles of travel. Puerto Quetzal is a gateway to interior destinations in Guatemala, including coffee plantations, beach and jungle tours and ancient native ruins that rise out of the dense forests. The golden beaches of Acapulco have long beckoned the world's elite jet-setters, and the culture of luxury has seeped down to the city's core.
Cabo San Lucas is known for whale-watching and incredible sport fishing in an undersea corridor known as marlin alley. Some of the most beautiful beaches on the Baja are to be found here, and there is still a strong sense of old Mexico to be found here, as you will see during your Disney Magic Cruise Ship vacation.
Disney Magic Cruise Ship Accommodations
After a day in the southern sun lay back and relax in one of the spacious staterooms onboard Disney Magic. There are many thoughtful features and an elegant ambience, with rich woods and imported tiles. There are six varieties of staterooms, most of them planned with consideration of family needs - some sleep as many as five people comfortably. Three of the stateroom plans have verandas and there is an ocean view room. All of the rooms have televisions, private baths and voice-messaging.
Disney Magic Cruise Ship Dining
Get a heaping helping of the cuisines of the Caribbean at the Parrot Cay, which features several menus, including Mexican and a master chef menu for upscale entrees. The Animator's Palate Restaurant magically turns from black and white to rich colored hues as the dinner progresses, with scenes from many famous Disney features depicted on the walls. For an excursion into French cuisine, stop by Lumiere's, named after the fancy candelabra in "Beauty and the Beast." For fantastic Northern Italian fare and a wide wine list, make a reservation at Palo.
Disney Magic Cruise Ship Entertainment and Activities
Take the wonders of Disney's theme parks and set sail, there are so many activities for the whole family onboard Disney Magic. Young children get to dance with Snow-White, have a pajama party in the world of the Lion King, and play games at Wonderland. There are magical experiments and an onboard pirate who tells seafaring stories of adventures of buccaneers from another era. Teens engage in an Amazing Race scavenger hunt, play a day-to-day game of clues and deception called Gotcha, splash around at organized pool parties and enjoy a farewell at a Party in Paradise.
For adults there are wine tastings, game shows, karaoke, cooking demonstrations, demonstrations about ocean travel and lectures about local customs, and behind-the-scenes talks about Disney movies and Broadway shows. There are swimming pools for all to enjoy, a full service gym, an onboard spa featuring many different treatments and a salon with internationally trained stylists.
