Where is anyone talking about Animator's Palate? The images found of the Magic's supposed plans are of Parrot Cay, Beach Blanket Buffet, and the Spa.

Topsiders and Parrot Cay are going to be refurbed. Animators is also expected to be upgraded to match the Dream/Fantasy. All new carpeting throughout the ship too. I asked if the horn will be upgraded but never did get an answer. Nobody said anything about stretching her but who knows. Also, next year the Wonder is scheduled for a long drydock to receive the same refurb and upgrades. Didn't hear where though.

Any rumors on what (if anything) they are changing in the cabins? Obviously bedding but I'd love to see virtual portholes!

We were on the Magic January 26... my son was in the Edge and the counselors told him that they were going to gut the whole kids area. They really need some work when you look at the difference between their clubs and those on the Dream/Fantasy. Didn't think to ask about what else they were doing while we were onboard but I think that's a good start.

My daughter will be very sad if they get rid of the big slide in the clubs on the classic ships....

I was thinking about that the other day when I was looking at the Magic for 2014. It still says queen or 2 twins, but that is no guarantee.

On the WBTA 2010 they started ripping up carpet and putting up plywood the night before we disembarked. There were other things going on during the cruise but nothing that affected our trip. It was weird to go to bed and in the next morning the carpet in the hallway by the elevators was missing and the wall next to the lifts were covered in plywood.

Would be nice if you could choose to have two twins or a real queen mattress. Actually I would like a king, but then the bed would be the whole room
