APRIL 26th: details about The Magic to be announced!

We just disembarked The Wonder after a 4-night cruise, and Capt. Thord told us that there will be an announcement on April 26th about the plans for The Magic during dry dock. He would not provide any other details except that The Magic will be sailing for many more years. He was also very direct in saying that not everything you read here on the DIS Board is factual. Unless you hear it from shoreside management, it is purely speculation.

We spent about 10 minutes chatting with Captain Thord during the Gold and Platinum reception. He was sincere, and we enjoyed the conversation. He wasn't shy at all about his preference for the Magic and Wonder. He was one of the original captains, on the opening team. Among other things, he prefers the more maneuverable "classic" ships. "We get to drive the Ferraris while (the Dream and Fantasy captains) get to drive the buses."

Well said, sir.

I could not agree with the Captain more!

Nope, no comments about new ships. He did say he has been involved in 6 new ship launches, and that was enough.

Captain Thord is so friendly and approachable....

My husband LOVES Captain Thord. Sometimes he walks around the house and says "Captain Thord" in a fake British Accent (I know Captain Thord is not british, but my husband has only 2 accents )

You need to tell Frank this. I am pretty sure I have him convinced to go on the Magic to Key West in November

We stayed at The Marlin, a boutique hotel in South Beach. Booked it on hotels.com. Not a bargain hotel at $300 for room and tax. However, the location and the hotel itself were outstanding. Recommended for couples-- not so family friendly. Easy walk to everything fun. We didn't have a car, and didn't need one. The only cabs we took were airport to hotel and hotel to port.
