We just returned from the 8/23 Magic cruise -- our sixth cruise on the Magic, ninth DCL overall. Our first sailing with the Magic was in November 1998, and we consider her "our ship." After reading so many negatives about her, I wanted to give her some love. We LOVE that ship. We did not experience anything near the negatives that others are posting. I realize we are in the minority, but we are not jumping to book the Dream or Fantasy. The Magic holds a special place in our hearts. We rebooked for one last voyage before she leaves the Caribbean, not knowing if we will be in a position to travel on her again, depending on her new itineraries. It will be a very bittersweet cruise for us. Just wanted to put a counterpoint out there to the other views. Not saying those experiences aren't valid -- just that there are others out there. We felt our latest cruise on the Magic was worth every penny (or point) we spent, and we are fondly awaiting our next opportunity to sail her. The staff and crew we encountered were dedicated, went above and beyond to make sure we felt taken care of and appreciated, and really added so much to the experience. So this is my small ode to the Magic, for what it is worth. I will most gladly, happily and joyously step aboard her one more time in 2011.
