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.
