    It is a very nice ship. Very elegant too. I was impressed.
    The desserts were very good....which is why I goan 6 -7 pounds on this trip.

    Yes. I think I read or even saw pictures that the wonder has changed their bedding to match the Dream and Fantasy and I am sure in drydock the Magic will do the same. But it was still comfy and the beds were comfy as well.

    It must be pixie dust! They are so darn good.

    Well, at least I caught the chocolate chip cookie picture AFTER breakfast. Or I would have had to hunt you down! :lmao:

    More pictures of the buffet.

    The place was very tropical looking.

    And my first round of plates.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    My only complaint was the salad dressing. I am a French dressing kid of girl….and I never saw it offered….though I never asked if they had it either.

    A view up from our table.

    [​IMG]

    After sitting and chatting and eating a bit, we saw Mary walk in. We said hellos and she said her friends were already seated and we glanced back at their table and gave a wave.

    I was not done yet. I went back up for a 2nd round…and then desserts too!

    My 2nd plate.

    [​IMG]

    And dessert. This was really good, but I can’t remember what it was. I think some sort of mousse type thing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After stuffing myself silly, I took a few pictures of the tables.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We chatted a little longer….Can you believe that Susan isn’t a dessert fan. I almost had to leave the room! LOL. Actually I wish I wasn’t a big dessert lover…I would probably lose weight a lot easier then.

    We decided it was time to tour the ship a bit. We still had lots of time till we had to attend the muster drill. We had finished eating about 12:45.

    Off we went. The plan was to go sign up for the drawing at the Vista Spa. We headed to the midship elevators.

    [​IMG]

    I stopped and took this picture of this boat, but got a lot of my own reflection in it.

    [​IMG]

    And we all tried to crowd into a very full elevator. Guess what…the elevator will have a light that says overloaded when you exceed its weight. LOL…..Yep we found that out the hard way. Lisa and I stepped back out and said we would meet up later. We got on the next one and Lisa was now paranoid that every time she stepped into one the light would alert.

    Wow, I'm really going to have to try those cookies! Of course I tried Zebra Domes because so many people raved about them and :crazy2:.

    But I'm excited to be able to try those cookies for myself.

    The picture that you posted in this latest set of updates shows the atrium from a different perspective and, while it does look smaller than the Dream, it didn't look tiny. I'm still not sure if I like that light fixture/chandelier in the atrium. It's a much different look than the one in the Dream's atrium.

    I know that ya'll were excited to finally be aboard and ready go exploring. Well, after eating, that is. ;) The foods on the buffet look really good.

    I actually was thinking of you to owhen I ate my very plain shrimp. I loved it, but I remembered how you said you needed to have it spiced up. :rotfl2:

    Yes that is a good picture to show the size. It's not completely tiny, but the Dream is just so big compared to it.
    I think of all the chandeliers from the different DCL ships...my favorite is the Dreams. I am not super impressed with the look of the Fantasy's...though I may change my mind if I see it in person.

    I will probably try one when I stay at AKL in a few weeks. i hope I like it. If not, I'll give it to family members. Someone will eat it I'm sure.

    To be honest I don't remember. This was more than 3 years ago.

    Thats what I kept reading, then I tried one...and didn't finish it.

    My family doesn't like them either, so you are not alone! It's fine with me that they don't care for them, that means I can eat the whole container :lmao:

    I haven't had lunch yet and all those wonderful food pictures are making a rumbly in my tummy.

    I caught a glimpse of a Disney Dooney in one of your pictures. It looks like a good size. I'm eying the sketch prints on the Disneystore website. Do you have the large or the medium? I'm looking for an oversized purse tote without carrying around a huge duffel bag.

    Just found your newest TR today but thanks to your handy links I am caught up. Can't wait to hear more about your trip! The Magic is such a pretty ship, I hope to be able to go on a DCL cruise someday.

    I appreciate it ;)

    I got all excited when I read about a veranda cabin with no split bathroom. I hate the split bathrooms with a passion.

    I'll try to keep it coming!


    Welcome Kathy!

    I think it's a large. It's like the biggest purse size before the carryon on size.

    Welcome! I knew you would find me! I would've hunted you down eventually! :rotfl2:

    It DOES have a split bathroom, but the review online said it didn't. I really like the split bathrooms though. I like that we can each have a spot to get ready. Plus from NCL...those bathrooms were the size of one of Disney split bathrooms. LOL SOO small on those ships.
