We heard that Palo was going to be expanded so no one could walk around the outside, no more tables added just making it a little roomier.

We were told it was not a secret - she will be in dry dock in Italy where she was constructed.

Hope your source was reliable, in Sept we had 4 different CM along with a member of the ship's security team tell us despite what others had said they were not going to Italy but rather to Spain as others have reported here. I understand that when DCL contracted in Germany for the Dream class the shipyard ard were the Magic/Wonder were made was not happy that they lost the bid. I guess we will all just have to wait and see come the fall of 2013!

Most rumours of a more recent nature, put the dry dock in Spain. When the drydock was first speculated upon, it was thought possibly in Italy, to correspond with the Venice cruises, however, further speculation lead to a different Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo, Sicily being considered. Based on the number of recent reports from crew members, the leading location is now Cadiz, Spain, and has been for several months. Reference the following web site...

Everything I've heard all year was that it was going to Spain. I've never heard anything mentioned about Italy (or even Germany).

dry dock of Magic 2013

Dry dock of Magic will be from Sept to mid October. It is scheduled to have its first cruise Oct 20 in Bahamas. There is no availability for booking a cruise as a transatlantic return in October. This could be because it could be like the Fantasy, coming over w/o passengers, or may I speculate...as a private reservation? It will do both an eastern and western transatlantic crossing in 2014.

I am thinking that there is no Transatlantic because the work will be ongoing during that time. With such an extensive refurb I believe they are going to need those extra 6-8 days to do finish work.

I can answer this! We were on the Magic last week and went to the Gold and Platinum members reception. We spoke to one of the officers about the refurbishment. He said they will still be working on the interior when it sails back over; he said he will be onboard during the entire refurbishment overseeing the work. He said the rumors about specific work being done are just that - rumors, that no plans have been officially finalized and signed off on yet. This guy wasn't the captain, but high up there - maybe the assistant captain or whatever the title is?

We booked the Magic Southern for9/20/14 on our recent Dream cruise. I'm very excited to hear what changes will be made. We loved AP on the Dream, especially my little one, she couldn't keep her eyes off of Crush. So that's a change that would be fun.

We are sailing on the Magic November 6th out of Miami, so I am very excited to see what is going to happen!!! The last thing I had seen was that DCL would be having a press release on April 26th that addresses this. I hope they give some specifics...

While taking a kitchen tour on the Fantasy MV, the Chef said that the Magic kitchen was going to get refurbished to fit in the new equipment that the Fantasy has. They can get out food cooked better and quicker with the up to date appiliances and the Magic kitchen is in need of the updating.
By the way, I would have had no problem eating off the floor of that Fantasy kitchen-I've never seen such a clean area,of ANY area, in my life (and the tour was imprompto,not scheduled hours ahead of time-it's always that clean,check their inspection "numbers").
I know it's an area few see,but I thought you'd like to know that the powers that be have their eyes on improving quite a few areas.
The Chef also threw out a quick comment about the upgrading of special effects,like possibly artwork and Animators Palate,more along the lines of what the Fantasy is offering,though,obviously,not on such a grand scale. As far as that goes,just thought I'd toss a log or two on the rumor pile......
