More Magical Fun added to Disney Magic after dry dock visit

The next set of guests to board the Disney Magic will enjoy an extra dose of pixie dust during their journey. The Disney Magic just left two weeks in dry dock and now offers more options for adults, children and families that experience Disney Cruise Line magical vacation.

The changes are hard to miss, especially on the pool decks: additions were made to the Mickey Splash Zone with a Fantasia’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice overlay, and a splash of upscale elegance was added to the adult-only Quiet Cove pool area. Other modifications have been made to the staterooms with 22 inch flat-screen LCD television sets. I think the Fantasia Overlay at the Mickey Splash Zone Pool will be a big hit.

A Wave of Enhancements for the Disney Magic Cruise Ship as it Returns from Dry Dock

CELEBRATION, Fla. – New enhancements are now in place on the Disney Magic as the ship returns from dry dock. The 2,700 passenger cruise ship received a series of upgrades from Sept 6 – 24, 2008.

Here is a glimpse at what’s new onboard the Disney Magic:

Indulgence and Relaxation
Quiet Cove, the serene pool retreat reserved for the enjoyment of adults, received a makeover including upgrades to Cove Café, the pool and the deck area. Cove Café, the ship’s sophisticated coffee lounge, now features a new seating area with plush, comfortable chairs providing the perfect venue to relax while sipping a cup of gourmet coffee. Meanwhile, the adult pool was outfitted with soothing, cascading waterfalls from the two hot tubs. Teak deck and lounge chairs with plush cushions line the pool, creating an inviting, stylish ambiance in line with the Vista Spa and Salon.

Fun for the Little Ones
The Oceaneer Club, a Neverland-themed play space for 3-7 year olds, and the Oceaneer Lab, a whacky and interactive laboratory exclusively for 8-12 year olds, were enhanced with new registration areas that make the check-in process more efficient and hassle-free. This sets the stage for incorporating Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in the youth activity areas later this year, which will further enhance and streamline the check-in process. The technology uses RFID tags embedded on wristbands, allowing children to simply tap a sensor to check in and out of the clubs.

Even the youngest cruisers now have a splashtacular time in “Mickey’s Splash Zone,” a new toddler water playground inspired by Fantasia’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice. This 385-square-foot extension to the Mickey Pool on deck 9 features star- and moon-shaped interactive fountains, a soft play surface and whimsical splash zones; creating an inviting environment for children not yet toilet trained and in swim diapers.

New Conveniences
The guest staterooms onboard the Disney Magic received an infusion of technology with the installation of flat-screen LCD television sets. The new 22-inch units are mounted on a swivel arm to allow easy viewing from multiple locations within the stateroom.

A leader in the family cruise segment, Disney Cruise Line offers three-, four- and seven-night itineraries to The Bahamas and the Caribbean. Land/sea vacation packages that include a stay at the Walt Disney World Resort are also available.
