Thanks

Thank you, Kevin, for an amazing trip report and beautiful photos! We were on the cruise as well, and I think were on your dinner rotation. I wanted to ask, may I copy a couple of photos you posted, as my DD (college student) is in the background of the photo?

Thank you!

Kevin, thanks so much for taking the time to share this great trip report with all of us. It was a wonderful read, and your photos (as may have been mentioned before once or twice ) are amazing.

For me, it was especially cool to see your Barcelona pictures, as DH and I were sightseeing there on the very same day, waiting to board the Magic the next morning (which is when you got off). Coming into town from the airport, I had already spotted the Magic in port and pestered my husband with frantic exclamations along the way of "She's here! The Magic! She's already here! Oh, I wonder what the people on board are doing right now! I can't wait for tomorrow!" and so on and so forth

Oh and by the way, terrible about that medical emergency - bit did you know that the exact same thing happened on the cruise right after yours? On the last day, due to a medical emergency, we sped back to Barcelona and arrived there at 9.00 pm instead of in the next morning. How are the odds of that happening two cruises in a row, I wonder?

Once again, thank you for the great report - now I'm back to waiting for my own next cruise!

Thank you so much! And I definitely understand your excitement at seeing the Magic...that sight never gets old.

Another medical emergency? How terribly tragic! I feel so bad for those who get so sick so far from home! I hope everyone is okay now!

Thanks again!

Keviekev,
I loved your trip report. The pictures are gorgeous. Thanks for your thoughtful insight and details. On our Fantasy cruise, we might have to check out diverisons or the equilavelant for games to play, Thansk again.

Thank you so much! Have fun on the Fantasy! I haven't booked a cruise on her yet, but I hope to get on her within the first year!

Another thank you. As I have never done a TR, I want to thank you for taking the time to write your trip. I would like to sail on a transatantic cruise and seeing other's experiences is always exciting to me.

A million thank yous for posting this. Somehow I have been reading TR this for the past 2 HOURS!!!

We have been on a 10-day Disney Med cruise in 2007. We are taking the Hawaiian cruise in April (our 5th Disney) and I needed to see what a longer cruise is like with so many sea days. I know now that I will not be bored!

I love...
All of your photos, especially:
The shots of the food... (ummm food)!
The Gibraltar Monkeys!
The dolphins! (and yes, those were whales)
The picturesque and quaint places you visited!
The weather, oh my the glorious weather!
The shows. These are the most amazing shots I have ever seen in a TR. The look like they are straight out of a professional program.

And, wow, you had a chance to try an American brownie and jelly? Lucky, lucky

Thank YOU! I LOVED writing this TR and I'm glad others have enjoyed reading it. I would recommend, without hesitation, a transatlantic cruise to everyone!

Thanks so much for taking the time to post this trip report!

It really helped us to relive our WBTA (just got back 2 weeks ago), and I loved the shots of Madeira and Gibraltar- those two ports were amazing!

And your commentary definitely held my interest throughout the whole report- you all even gamed more than we did....

Thank you for reading and for the compliments! And, while we were cruising, I didn't think we gamed THAT much...until I wrote the TR and every other paragraph involved gaming, haha!
