Disney Magic Renovations

We will be cruising to Europe in July of 2013 on the Magic. I've heard that they've been renovating a few rooms here and there before the dry dock.. so when will the ship be going into dry dock? Will it be before or after our trip? Will they do any more renos before the dry dock/before July? Thanks.. any info would be appreciated

Nope. And I REALLY want to know since I'll be on that cruise right after! I wish I knew when they'll make an announcement.

The Magic has several weeks of unscheduled time at the end of the Med cruises in 2013, which end with reservations for port in Madeira and Gibraltar. We are all guessing that this time will be dry dock.

On our last DCL cruise (Fantasy) the dining staff told us that the Magic was to have Topsiders remodeled into something resembling Cabanas and the housekeeping staff told us that all cabins were being gutted and completely refurbished. We did find this a little odd as on our 2011 Magic cruise they were swapping out bathtubs and other facilities in some cabins.

Thanks for all the info everyone! kind of wish these renovations were being done before our Med cruise, but oh well I'm sure the ship is still very beautiful! maybe those random cabin renovations I heard about will be finished by our trip..

We were on the Magic last week and spoke to an officer about the dry dock. He said anything out there in terms of renovations is just strictly rumor at this point, that no changes had been approved yet. He knew that for sure because his officer position was such that he would be one of the officers traveling and staying with the ship during dry dock and the return home overseeing the changes.

Years ago, I sailed on the Magic on the last cruise before a dry dock.

During that cruise, there was lots of prep-work done onboard, such as laying plywood on the floors and lining the elevators with plywood.

Uh oh, does that mean that there's going to be tons of construction and things closed during our cruise?

I hope there is no prep work going on in July. That will make me sad ( and a little mad )

Since all of the Med cruises sail from Barcelona, it makes sense for them to drydock in Cadiz, Spain, rather than travel the other direction to Italy.

They are pretty much always working on the ship. When I sailed in June, they were grinding above the lifeboates (run out the lifeboat, setup scaffolding, climb up and start grinding off every painted surface above your head) ALL DAY LONG every time we were in port (including embarkation day). Think metal jackhammer type vibrations which were impossible to drown out in my deck 8 cabin (3-4 decks up, depending how you count them). I did mention on my comment card that maybe in the future, they could alternate port and starboard to give folks a break!

So, they will be working and that work may or may not be noisy/disruptive. It might not have anything to do with the drydock. Might just be normal maintenance of a vessel continually exposed to the elements.

Thanks! Yep, I expect normal, but I hope nothing is covered in plywood and carpets aren't ripped up
