Another great update! Nice that you had another great family to enjoy your meals with you...I always wonder what it would be like if you got yutz's

I did laugh when you said he'd pick Mr Incredible and I knew right away he probably picked Goofy...you really should listen to your wife, she is right most of the time! Hi Pooksma!!!!

If I had a balcony like that I would have headed for it too! Great choice!

I really wanted to pick Goofy but I thought I would be the nice dad. I guess that didn't get me anywhere.

One of the many things DCL does well.

Those are some nice shots of Canaveral and the channel. I do believe y’all had just about the best seats in the house for the sail-away.


Hope some day to score me a veranda cabin and do the same.

I don’t recall what we had but I do know it was good.
Like all dining aboard Disney ships, I expected to enjoy Enchanted Garden, but it surprised us by being about the best meal we had on our last cruse.

The venerable “oldie”… A good show that they’ve been doing pretty much since the Magic first started sailing. Have seen it several times and it’s still entertaining.

Very cool! (next time you’ll just have to cheat too to make it fair )

It surprises me that more folks don’t take advantage of some of these whole-family activities. We were one point shy of being declared the “Pirate Kings” on one trip and I’ve actually won a round of “Who Wants to be a Mousketeer” (based on the Millionaire game) and have the “etched glass paperweight” to prove it. Some of those games are a real hoot.



Sounds like an excellent sailing day. You took advantage of a lot of the extras that the unprepared tend to miss out on. Looking forward to hearing you take on Nassau.

Great pic of the VAB at the Kennedy Space Center! Always cool to see from on deck of a Disney Cruise ship.

We had a great first day, got lots done and had just enough sleep the night before to enjoy it.

So after lots of shrimp and some crab legs...?

I am intrigued by the shrimp and crab legs. We've been on DCL 4 times and I only remember crab claws. Are the crab legs available often? We usually do the sit down on embarkation day. Should I be heading to Cabanas for these treats? April 7th 4 day is coming soon!!!!


Great report! Keep it coming!
