Magic Goes Texan! Eight Crazy Nights (3/1/2013 Bahamas)

Hello fellow Magic cruisers! We recently returned from our second Caribbean cruise aboard the Magic, and loved it so much (again) that we had to rebook onboard. We hope to meet some new friends before setting sail from Galveston on 3/1/2013. Come join us!

**** PLEASE NOTE ****

This thread was started before DCL changed its SPRING 2013 itineraries. We are now actually an 8-night Bahamas sailing. Sorry for any confusion, but if you are cruising to Castaway Cay, Walt Disney World, and Key West aboard the Magic from Galveston on March 1-9, 2013...This is your thread!!


Here is a link to our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/groups/magicgoestexan/
To join us over there, please post a message in this thread so we will know to approve your FB request. Thanks!


Here is our itinerary as of 12/12/12. I will keep it updated with additional information as it becomes available:

Hey

We will be sailing this cruise as well

You would think after 5 cruises I would know better than to leave without booking on board.

But, Luckily i have a friend who was smart and booked on board so at least i get to share in the OBC!

WE are going to be doing an inside cabin this time, but close enough to the private verandah that we can almost feel like we have our own large verandah with a white wall.

Hopefully will be chillin' ALOT THIS CRUISE.

Wow! What an AWESOME friend you must have.

I hope it's not long before we get this thread going. I'm looking forward to having some local Texans join us so they can give us the scoop on the port and such! So glad to be cruising with you guys again.

Oh, and I LOVE your new pic!

I hope so! I checked out a couple of the other Galveston threads and it seems like they have at least a few Texan peeps. I have been to Houston and can do the pre-cruise planning, but I have read mixed reviews of the Galveston port on another board. I am interested in hearing some firsthand info. Of course, I guess anyone who has cruised out of Galveston will do...they don't necessarily have to be Texan. Haha!

P.S. - Check out my new TICKER!

OH I LOVE YOUR TICKER!!

So, I am booked in Cabin 7621.
I dont know if we will stay there or not

I dont really want an inside room But I really want to go on this cruise

I dont even know if My DD will be going on the cruise with us so i did not put her in yet, i can add her later if need be.

We were not in our Cabin that much But i do like looking at the water while we are getting ready for dinner etc but it will just make me get ready faster.

WE have done an inside cabin before and we survived and that was with 2 kids with us;

booked last night

I booked the cruise last night..but shhh dont tell husband. I asked for Magic's itinerary for Fall 2013 and they still dont know what it is.
My daughter, Sydney, who was the Make a Wish child in Feb, has been asking ever since we got back to go on another cruise. Well her 9th bday is Sunday and Im having everyone give her Disney gift cards to put towards this one! She wants for nothing and I think this is the best $ spent on her
Everytime I go to store Ill pick up a $25 gift card so it doesnt hurt the purse too much at once.
The 10% I received was a mailer. Disney sent a photo of the Magic and Thank'd us for our first cruise
Now hopefully I will be able to figure out how to post pics and put that darn timeline on my posts.
Not sure when I will tell hubby!! Also does anyone else have problems with this forum always being slooow?
Denise

Just Checking In

Hey friends! Just checking in to say hi and see how our roll-call is looking. Denise, glad to see you and your family will be joining us!

I am NOT on the treadmill. Have not gained or lost any pounds, that I know of. But I did just watch a super hilarious Subway commercial where people are sitting around eating junk food, and their chairs break. Good thing I skipped dessert tonight!!

Nothing new to report on the cruise front. We did make hotel reservations in Houston for a couple of nights before the trip, but that's as far as we've gotten.

Hope all the moms on here have a FABULOUS Mother's Day!

Hello
We just booked this vacation last week on the Fantasy.
It will be my DH(Bob), myself(Crystal) and DD(Kaprisha (4))
This will be dh and my 4th cruise (3rd on the Magic) and dd's very 1st

We are not familiar with the Houston area and are not sure where to stay and such.... So if anyone receives any good advice or knows of anything please let us know

So glad to be going back on the Magic. The Fantasy is beautiful and awsome but she just has something missing that the Magic has
