We are going to be bad parents and go without her again We may have to look at that one. I want somewhere nice and close to everything.

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.
It was nice to have a one on one conversation with Captain Thord! He didn't have to do a general speech since there were so few people there. What, maybe 4 groups? He does love the classics!

The Magic is going for her drydock at the end of her Med season this September. The rumor for the Wonder is her drydock will be next fall.

I could see makeovers for the magic and wonder but I really don't see two new ships. DCL doesn't need them unless they plan on sailing to asia or australia or south america. Frankly they are having problems with finding itineraries for the wonder now that it doesn't sail to mexico anymore. I wonder how the hawaii cruises went. That makes more sense than going through the canal twice a year. They could even do a couple of brazil cruises.That would be interesting

What happened to Captain Fabian? He was just the Captain on the Wonder in February for us.

And I totally agree. I love the older ships!!

That is GREAT news! All was in order on our two Magic cruises. A well maintained and fantastic ship! Now, to get enough money saved for our next one...
