Got to the webcam too late to see it - but the pictures are fabulous!!

You know, the first one of the 2 side-by-side will make a KILLER door magnet for those doing "back-to-back" cruises!!

I found the Magic gone by about 5 PM or so, then I watched the Wonder leave about 7:20. Of course the whole time my kids were rolling their eyes at me. Kids, they just don't understand me, especially when I keep using words like "Magestic" and "Noble" and "Magnificent"

Here is a Panorama I shot yesterday of both ships together in Nassau. It was beautiful. A great consolation prize to missing Castaway.

We were on the Magic. They started preparing us for the bad CC news at the daily noon update from Captain Tom on 11/1. He read the official forecast word for word. Later that day, Brent gave us an update (which added nothing new about the storm) that indicated we might go to Nassau. It wasn't until we were about to turn around in the harbor that Brent announced that the Wonder was coming behind us. DW and I raced up to the deck 7 secret area to get our first glimpse. We took so many photos, all the while stating that the DCL photo of the day thread would see much action from this day.

The top decks of both ships were lined with people watching. You could see numerous crew members watching and waving, too. I recall 2 soundings of the Magic's horn, with 1 from the Wonder. Even Captain Tom and several officers came out onto the port side bridge wing to observe the Wonder. The guests and staff in the Wonder's spa villas were waving.

Yes, we were told multiple times to get back on the correct ship. You could see and feel the excitement among the staff. We asked several how often both ships dock at the same port on the same day. Most said it was very rare (years ago). The cast members jubilantly went to the opposite ship to see friends. Our Palo server's girlfriend is on the Wonder. DW spotted him coming up behind us on the pier. "Going to see her?" we asked. "YES!" was the response. The smile on his face was priceless. He was powerwalking as fast as he could. Later, we saw Captain Tom headed past the Quiet Cove pool towards the bridge of the Magic. A short time later, Captain John and his wife headed the same way. All aboard was 3pm, we cast off around 3:20, and got moving towards PC without delay.

We were sad not to make it to CC (again), but figured this once in a lifetime experience helped to make up for it. Photos of the 2 ships together could be purchased for $12 each in Shutters.

Just off the Magic Yesterday. I was talking to a crew member up at Mickey's Pool about the Magic and Wonder being together. She said the crew was very excited about this. Both captiains had given their crew permission to go aboard the other ship and hang out for a while. She said that a lot of the crew we saw walking around deck 9 were actually Wonder crew looking around and saying hi to friends they used to work with or train with. (She said they had to leave their ID at the gangway and pick it up when they got off).

I was also on the Magic when these two ships were in port together. These are far from professional but here are the pics I took.






This is why we weren't able to dock in CC. This pic was taken from my deck 2 window

I was on the Wonder. I have video of the ships "dueling" their horns when coming into port, and they did it again when the Magic left Nassau on Friday afternoon.

I just literally walked in the door from our cruise, so I'll post pics later this evening. Those waves were ROUGH on Thursday night...they were 18-20 until 11 p.m.!! LOTS of sick people all around!

I'm sorry the Magic didn't make it to CC on Friday; we were there yesterday and it was flat out gorgeous.
