Magic dry dock this fall

Any information on why such a long (6 week) dry dock for the Magic in Cadiz? Any major changes on the books?

Only information is it's a long one (6 weeks instead of the usual 2).

Rumors/reports from those CMs who have an opinion - Topsiders will be changed to a more "Cabanas" style layout. Major refurbishment to the rooms. Plus any "standard" drydock stuff (engines, machinery).

Thanks for those links. Sounds like still only speculation, unless someone chimes in here. Yes there will be a topsiders redo.

It is speculation, but it is speculation on the level of "my server told me" or "my stateroom host told me." I know that on our last cruise, the CMs were very excited and were quite willing to talk about plans in their areas.

Just another bit of cast member specualtion. The HR officer told us last year, at the CC Reception that they would be taking the spa down to the "studs" and rebuild it.

Let's not forget, the concierge lounge build out on deck 8.

Or the flip side; the new 32 cabins installed.

No one knows. DCL is great at secrets. Perhaps the US Govt. could learn a thing or two....

It would be neat to see them do a TV special on this dry dock overhaul like they did for one of the RCC ships a few years ago, you could bet my DW and I would DVR that to watch multiple times!!!

That would be very cool. They used to have a film of one of the early Magic Dry Docks that they played on the ship as part of a behind the scenes program and on the stateroom TVs. It was amazing to see what they did in such a short time.

I also think the last time the Magic was in dry doc, DYI TV had it on one of it's programs.

DCL is not known for this. I can understand the reasons now. It appears the less info revealed the more hype/interest there is, albeit non mainstream media.

The power of social media/internet.
DCL knows this.
