Thank you! Most photos were taken using a Canon 5D Mark II with a 16-35mm f/2.8 lens. I think we used the 70-200mm f/2.8L lens for a few of them.

All of the underwater photos were taken using a Canon D20

Thank you! Ya know, I really did love our cruise on the Disney Magic. The newer ships are certainly gorgeous and meticulously detailed in the decor and theme, but we just flat out had a ton of fun on the Magic. Maybe the smaller ship and more "community" feel had something to do with that?

The Magic definitely needed a facelift in the staterooms and in other areas of the ship and I may die waiting for our 2014 cruise to see result of all of the remodels they are doing!

I enjoyed your trip report very much! Loved all the pictures. We're going to be on the Eastern itinerary, but I just love seeing pictures of the ship, the food, Castaway Cay, and hearing how people have spent their time on board.

No problem! You'll be totally addicted once you go on your first cruise!

They both have pros and cons! The large portal (oceanview rooms) are noticeably larger which is really nice, but I did miss the verandah in the mornings - breathing in the fresh air while drinking coffee or reading was really nice.
