Smile Question about deck parties on the Magic

Two of our party are in wheelchairs. Is there a special place for wheelchairs on the deck parties? Would we do better to be a deck above?

I know they do have some reserved wheelchair seating, though I can't tell you where or whether people think it's adequate (or better to locate yourself along the rail upstairs). Try posting to the disAbilities forum...someone there likely will have experience.

Enjoy your cruise!

This is how it was on our Magic cruises:

The deck party area is at the family pool. They have a cover that closes over the pool making a big deck area, with the stage on the forward end of it.

If you stand on the stage and look aft, in the rear corners of the deck area are two raised seating areas. The one on the port side was blocked off for wheelchair use.

And if the reserved wheelchair area is full, go up to the next deck level. They won't have reserved areas but you will have a good view of the party.
