Disney Cruise Line Mediterranean cruise on the Disney Magic

I’m home! My holiday highlight of the year is over, and all is left are the photos, souvenirs, and videos waiting to be turned into vlogs. What a trip it was. From getting lost in Barcelona to the absolute perfection of the Disney Magic, I can honestly say that I enjoyed every minute. Normally trips flash by in the blink of an eye, but I properly made the most of this holiday.

Here are some of my highlights.

  1. The food.
    All of the food. All the time. It was so good. I’ve probably put on so much weight and I don’t even care. We would have cooked breakfasts – complete with Mickey waffles – followed mostly by buffet lunches, maybe fitting in a few snacks, and then a four-course meal in the evening. Life was good.

2. Tangled the Musical. 
All of the evening shows on the Disney Magic are so much fun, but this was my favourite. They take the story of Tangled and turn it into a full musical, complete with new original songs alongside the best from the movie. The staging is impressive, particularly with Rapunzel’s endless hair.

3. Dancing the night away in Fathoms.
The Disney Magic parties late, with DJ sets in Fathoms, the main adult destination, going on until 2am every night. We didn’t quite make it that late, but we did have a great time dancing to oldies once everyone else was asleep. The best part is knowing that bed is only a few hundred metres away.

4. The characters.
Being able to meet so many characters with such short lines was great. Mickey and friends were out every single evening, with special characters like Captain America and Thor popping up on some nights.

5. Activities on the Navigator.
The Cruise Staff put on some great events, from drawing and trivia, to tours of hidden details around the ship. We did so many events and enjoyed all of them. The ‘Art of the Theme Show Tour’ was a highlight, and I definitely recommend it to find out more about the design of the ship.

6. The Cast Members.
Honestly, the Cast Members on the Disney Magic are extraordinary. As you’re all on the same ship for a whole week, you start seeing familiar faces all the time. Those people that you’ve talked to before will recognise you and say hi whenever you cross paths, so it feels like there is a community on the ship.

    Subscribed to your YouTube (not sure why I hadn’t already!), can’t wait to see it all! I reeeeally want to do a DCL cruise but I’m worried about feeling seasick – I went on a cruise when I was 8 and was so horrifically seasick I’ve not been brave enough to do one since! Was it ever rough?

      Thank you, lovely! It means a lot. It was actually surprisingly rough, but I got my sea legs after the first day. On the first evening, I wore my sea bands and they helped me feel a lot more centred. After that, I didn’t need it at all. If you want a smoother cruise, the Caribbean in spring and early summer is the best option.
