I assumed it was to do with where they are. We were on the Magic in the Caribbean January 2012 and they had Banana, mango and Blueberry soft serve options on different days.

On the same ship in the med this year the options were Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla. I was gutted as the Banana was amazing and I had been looking forward to it for weeks!

News to me...but I could've missed them as only DH was braving the soft serve on our last several cruises. I will say its a new development though as in 2010 I know there was only chocolate and vanilla on deck ever.

I have to go back and read through all this pages! Most people probably know this but I didn't know you could order breakfast items from room service because it wasn't on the menu (unless I missed it). Every morning I took the kids down for breakfast while my fiancé got ready, she is not and early morning person, and then brought her back breakfast. We did order a coffee carafe the night before which was a good idea I learned here on the boards.

Any ideas specific to the Magic? I've only been on the Dream so didn't know if there were any small differences to know.

The cards to order breakfast are in the desk drawer

No, on the Magic's EBTA from Galveston to Barcelona in May we had a variety of flavors. Banana, Blueberry, Strawberry, Mango as well as the usual Chocolate and Vanilla.

On our Oct 2012 Magic cruise there were lots of choices of soft serve and they changed daily. They had little labels they would put out to tell you what type they had for that day. :-). We didn't eat it every day but we often walked by to see what they were offering - intending to go back later and would get wrapped up in something else... Lol. :-)

Questions on DCL vs RCL cruises

We just booked our first Disney Cruise on the Magic for Christmas 2013, Get on the ship after the refurb.
I've done multiple cruises on RCL and Carnival, but are "upgrading" for this one (it's my daughter's 18 bday and my son's 21 bday present).
For anyone who has cruised on these other lines can you tell me some of the things that are different (besides obvious).
I have read about the fish extenders, doors, etc. Does Disney have a limit on how many bottles of liquor can be brought by each person? Also are you allowed to bring in your own soda (I don't like Coke products).

Any help would be appreciated. My daughter is a huge fanatic so want to make this a magical birthday present.

You can bring your own soda. I am not aware of a limit but all alcohol and soda need to be in your carryon bags. I would imagine the amount you can carry yourself onboard.

You can bring as much of your favorite soda and alcohol that you can comfortably carry on. You have to bring it in your carry on though it cannot be in your checked bags.
