Magic hopefully docking soon!
 
Woke up to find us still ~50ish miles from Galveston due to foggy conditions and the port being closed. DCL has been amazing, adding tons of activities, letting us stay in our rooms and use the shops even! Got the ok to proceed into port about 30" ago with a pilot (I've no idea what that means). Hope to be off this boat before 4!! Crew has been great. We of course are driving home so we aren't as freaked out about things as people flying might be, but everyone seems in good spirits. Crew members have indicated today's passengers got some sort if notification last night?

Has been a great cruise, we did miss costa maya due to weather/choppy seas.

We got an email this morning that said to wait 4 hours, and a little bit ago got another that said wait 6 hours. That is great that they had extra activities. Really nice that you don't have to worry about catching a plane.

We can just now see land so hopefully the port process begins soon!

We are twirling about now, they've called the express walk off folks to the beat street lounges. Hopefully all the early disembarkers and those catching planes can somehow get off quickly when we are okayed! We are hanging out in the room till a good 30" past when they announce we are cleared to go. Again, the crew has been amazing - movies running all morning, activities opened up, pretty much full meal and beverage service as far as I can tell.

They do a good job of getting it together on short notice when "stuff" happens. This situation is rather unusual, but missing a scheduled port of call due to weather is much more common.

Safe trip home to everyone.

Disembarkment has begun. Kudos again to DCL and the Magic crew. They will have her polished up for you next cruisers ASAP!

I'm dumb
 
Why can't I see it?

cypressmom 01-12-2013 03:20 PM

I'm glad you made it back ok,

We were on the ship and disembarked around 4:30. I agree with the previous posters - the crew was great in terms of activities, meals, etc. I do feel they should have provided more frequent updates, even just to say "no change".

We missed our 4pm flight home and are now in a hotel near Hobby Airport with lots of Magic "refugees". Hopefully we'll make it home tomorrow.
