Okay, I LOVE this so it got me wondering. I tend to take a L O T of photos and got to thinking about our last night on our first cruise on the Wonder last November when I went wandering around photographing the beautiful ship at about 1am when no one was around. So... as they do in sports, I went to "check the tape." I found that I have almost this exact picture, taken November 17, 2010.

I also have one that is of the Wonder in Italy. It's taken the same night.

On the June 8-18th Med cruise, on our way out of Naples, two U.S. Navy ships were present. The U.S.S. Gettysberg and this, the U.S.S. George Bush. As we sailed past the George Bush, the Magic sounded her distinctive horn twice. It was truly a magical experience.

Happy 4th of July to our friends in the States.

I would love to see if anyone gets a picture of the Magic porthole too. Whe we had one in May we discovered that there is no sound to alert you to a view, just like with a real porthole or standing on deck--you have to be looking in the right direction at the right time.

We did notice a swirl of Pixie Dust so if we were facing the porthole but not looking at it, the area did brighten. The effects do not last long and cannot be "caused" (no button to push) so the camera would have to be at the ready at all times.

There was so much ship to explore and things to do that we spent little time in the room and when we were there we were not staring at the porthole, we were reading the Navigator or getting ready to go somewhere that I think we only saw 4 effects in our 4 night cruise.

If anyone gets a photo, I hope they post it!

. Good detectve work

we took the MAGIC on an EastBound TransAtlantic in April 2010 and they had her on the Med. At least once before so a Nov 2010 picture is not too much of a stretch.
BUT
a NYC picture.....
When did they announce the NYC itineraries--anyone remember?
And
anyone got photos of the Deck 3 aft elevator lobby older than these
taken by Disney Dreams?

The "Magic" is actually a "Virtual" porthole in the Inside staterooms on the Dream.

From the Disney parks blog there is an entry with a video.
http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...iew-its-magic/

Quote:
Magical Porthole
For some added Disney magic, all Inside Staterooms feature a Magical Porthole, providing Guests with a real-time view of the outside of the ship that reflects the actual stateroom's location—port or starboard. High-definition cameras placed on the exterior of the ship feed live video to an LCD flat-screen monitor with a stylized nautical frame cleverly disguised as a porthole.

Be on the lookout for enchanting surprises; you never know who or what might pop by! It could be a beloved Disney character or a pirate ship. And when it's time for bed (or a nap), just turn off the Magical Porthole with a quick flip of the switch.
