Hi fellow dissers. We did the 10-day Christmas cruise on the Magic in 2004 and just returned from cruising on the Magic this Christmas (12/24-12/31 2005). We noticed that the ship was looking tired and not as polished. Did any of you notice this as well? Also, we weren't as impressed this time with the cruise as we were last year. Simply put, the ship is starting to show her age ... but what's most surprising is the dramatic change from last Christmas to this Christmas. It's almost as though Disney has cut-back on their maintenance crew and don't have enough people to keep the Magic in ship-shape. However, our biggest dissappointment was our server. Everything was great until she received her tip on the Friday night from us ... but after that she was extremely grumpy and had the nerve to tell our son to hurry up and make up his mind at Breakfast. We gave her a full tip and were very surprised to see the switch. Her name was Shantol ... have any of you seen this before from her? Needless to say this left a terribe taste in our mouths and I don't think we'll cruise with Disney again for a long time.
