Magic changes: Topsiders becoming Cabanas, Parrot Cay losing parrots?

I didn't see this news anywhere around here, so I thought I'd post. I was just browsing the website of the design firm hired to to redo the California Grill (images here, although it is listed as a "confidential project" - the castle out the window is a bit of a giveaway) and found something interesting.

I stumbled across another project for a "cruise ship: confidential project." Although there's no saying for sure it's our beloved Magic, it seems likely given its impending drydocking, and what looks like Topsiders in several of the renderings.

Anyway, if you hover your most over each rendering on the link above, you'll see each of the Topsiders renderings has a popup reading "CABANA#_CRUISE" (note the new decor and the Donald Duck footprints on the floor). This suggests to me that Topsiders may be renamed to match the buffets on the new ships.

Even more surprising is that if you hover over the fine dining restaurant, you'll see a popup reading "PARROT_CRUISE". The rendering also looks very much like Parrot Cay. The surprising part is that there's not a parrot in sight, nor is there the colorful red color scheme we've become used to. There is, however, a floor pattern reminiscent of the Copacabana sidewalk in Rio de Janeiro. So it looks like there is at least some dedication to the tropical theme.

Thoughts?

Good eye. I hope you're right, the new Parrot is nice!

Thanks for the links. Since this is the company that did Remy, it makes sense to have them redesign the restaurants on the classic ships.

I will be soooooooooooo disappointed if they change the theme of Parrot Cay, which is currently my favorite restaurant on the classic ships. Yes, it does need some updating (like getting rid of the rattan style furniture), but I love the colorful Caribbean theme. *sigh*

It sure looks like an updated Cabanas to me! I like it, the birds in sky is a different look. Nice investigating!

Thanks for posting. When is the Cali Grill being redone? My favorite restaurant!

Can't say I'm thrilled about their vision for the Parrot Cay refresh but...it's DCL's ship to do with as DCL pleases. Those are also likely just concept mock-ups, the final product may be different.

The cruise ship confidential is greyed out and I can't click on it. Any ideas? Or can someone post a screen shot?

If you click on the link in the OP, it takes you directly to the project page. You can then scroll sideways to see the different concepts.

I guess this is just the next step for DCL to make all its ships uniform as far as venue names onboard. Glad that they can't change much of the charm of the classics. We hope to cruise on the Magic again soon, and while I like the look of the Fantasy, I would want to feel like I was on the Magic again when we board.

Does Cabanas have outdoor seating?

I would hate to lose the outdoor seating on the Magic and Wonder.

I'm so pleased Parrot Cay is being refitted ... although I love it now, it really is quite dark even though it's very colourful!

Thanks for posting and sharing
