Smile Magic: November 1, 2013 5 night Western

Who is coming with us? Surely we are not on this ship alone.

We were originally booked on the Nov 3 Dream, but once we saw the changes coming to the Magic we knew we had to see them. This will be the 4th sailing post dry dock so I am thinking most kinks should be worked out by then

Excited!!!

Hello! You are not alone!

We will be onboard with you 11/1. Thank you for starting this thread. I do wonder if this sailing won't be busy due to the date (having to travel on Haloween) and the port. Miami is not the easiest to get to for some.

We booked this cruise before the Magic's upgrades were officially announced and are anxious to see the ship's new looks. I agree this cruise will be a perfect time to enjoy all the new upgrades while minimizing the kinks that go with construction.

Looking forward to meeting you. We had a great meet and FE group last July on the Dream; some of whom we still keep in touch with. It would be great to make new friends this fall.

The traveling on Halloween did give us pause for a minute. My daughter is 13, won't care too much. My son is 4 and another story. He will care - and I am hoping to meet up with a friend in Ft Myers and perhaps do some trick or treating there - or at least get him dressed to go somewhere!

Miami was a bit pricey for us to fly into. We are flying into Tampa very early the day before and driving from there.

I agree. It's at least and additional 50% more to fly into Miami over Orlando. But the big hitch is the limited number fights there from Indy. Well, we figured it'll be worth it to see the Magic again. She was practically a new ship when we sailed her on our honeymoon back in 2000 and I haven't laid eyes on her since. We have since sailed on the Wonder and Dream but the Magic will always be special. We hope to cruise on the Fantasy in the future to join the "Grand slam club".

Hopefully we'll get some more members joining us so we can form even s small FE group. Last July, on a Dream double dip, there were enough to break into two groups. That was peak vacation time and a larger ship. This is sort of an odd cruise due to itinerary and port so I don't expect we'll have near that amount. But even a small group would be a good time.

A small group would be great! After this cruise, we just need to get on the Wonder for our Grand Slam. We did the Fantasy last Sept. We had a fairly large group, which surprised me, since kids were supposed to be back in school .

Booking the Wonder after the dry dock upgrades would be perfect timing. DW turns 40 next year so that will give us an excuse to sail on the Fantasy in the fall of '14.

We are sailing on this cruise, too! So excited. We sailed on the Magic in August 2012 out of NY to Canada. The kids were a bit disappointed we had chosen the same ship for our second cruise. But can't wait to see all the upgrades now!
After the cruise we are driving to Orlando for some WDW time

I wish we would have taken advantage when the Magic was in NY. I would have loved to have seen her in her current state but we are really excited for the upgrades as well

Hello, and welcome! Very glad you'll be sailing with us. The Magic is a very special ship and I'm sure you'll all have a great time. You're right, it'll be like a new ship though I hope and suspect there will be plenty of classic ship "soul" left.

See y'all in November!

Hey there. We'll be onboard with all of you in November! It will be me, my husband, our 5 year old son, and 3 year old twin girls. We're also bringing my father in law and his g/f (this will be her FIRST cruise!)

The last time I was on DCL was back in 1999 on the Wonder. Since then, we hadn't had kids and went on Carnival and RC. Now that our family is complete, we're doing more kid-oriented vacations. We went to Disney World last Spring Break and now our son's birthday trip will be on this cruise. The kids are beyond excited to go on another "big boat", especially since Mickey and Minnie are coming too.

We'll be coming from SC; trick or treating with family that night and leaving around 9pm, when daddy gets home from work, and driving straight through to Miami!

Hello and welcome StriplingSC! We're glad you joined us . We first sailed DCL around the time you first did. My how things have changed. Your son is going to have a great birthday and I'm sure you'll all have a fantastic time. Be careful, sounds like you might be worn out when you arrive.

Last July on the Dream we arranged an adults' get-together one evening where several of us met at one of the lounges (Skyline actually) to have a drink and talk. We did it mid-cruise to swap stories and share pointers for the rest of the voyage. It was a great time. Perhaps ,since your father in law is coming, you guys can get away.

Probably in the near future we should consider organizing for an FE.

Once again, glad to have you aboard!

Talking 90 Days!

Alright Mateys!

Today we are 90 days out from our cruise. Those that have sailed before and are Castaway Club Silver now's the time to book your excursions, special dining, ,spa goodies and the all important Port Arrival time. That is unless you're Gold level or higher and have already booked, or are a maniac like me and stay up 'till midnight to jump and then sleep in. (right, like the boys will let that happen! )

Just a friendly reminder. Check in when you can. I'll be back tomorrow to report.
