I wonder when the Magic goes into dry dock if they will do an enclosed Outlook like the Wonder (I know now weight limits are the issue) and have the Magic go to Alaska while the Wonder is being refurbed. Might tie in with the recently sighted 9-night Alaska cruise listing (something special).

OMG such a great idea! I think you're onto something here. We'll be on the Magic before the drydock. Sorta really bummed about that. But if the Magic gets an Outlook Cafe and it totally gets refurbed....we'd be so there for a 9-night Alaskan cruise.

This has been mentioned before. We shall certainly see soon.

Lets remember the Dream is due in 2014 for its 1st dry dock as well. Grant it, it will be the short 2-week dry dock, but a dry dock nonetheless.i don't think they'll send her to Europe. Probably Norfolk or Freeport or somewhere close. The 3 & 4 night cruises are the bread & butter if DCL, so she won't be out too long.

I can't imagine DCL intentionally planning any kind of dry dock, long or short, over summer months. This is their short window where they can charge triple the price of a Sept cruise and get away with it.

I would guess it's from Labor Day-ish to Christmas.

I guess I meant that the Wonder would do the Med during the summer and then go into dry dock.

Oh yes, that would make sense esp if they plan the dry dock at Fincantieri.

Or in Caldiz, Spain like has been rumored? They'd just switch places for the year so the Wonder can go get prettied up.

Wow those pictures are gorgeous! I am kinda bummed that we'll be the last people on the ship before the reno...but like I said, it's just a reason to book another cruise afterwards.

I can't imagine us never wanting to sail on the Magic.

It's not certain yet, but they're chatting about it in the 2014 itinerary thread.

Here's to hoping rumors are just rumors, could not imagine losing the look of the original animators. Don't care for animators on the dream. A lot of people sail the Magic and Wonder because they prefer these ships over the Dream and Fantasy, why would they want to risk losing this large following ?

I seriously doubt that following is "large" enough to make a difference. If it was, DCL wouldn't change a thing. People like shiny new things. I think that DCL did such a good job on the Dream and Fantasy, that they made the Wonder and Magic look subpar.

True. Just like one poster on the Dis once complained that the new decking material of the Magic isn't real teak wood anymore, an old time traditional wood often used in boat/ship building. I noticed it (my dad is a long time boaty) but it's not such a big deal that I would stop cruising the Magic over it but this guy was freaking out.

I do hope that they realize people appreciate the differences between the Magic class ships & the Dream class. It's not just about the size. I don't want them to make a mini version of the Dream but it doesn't need some updating.
