Thank-you!!! I appreciate it!

And sorry for the delay in Fun Times. I finally went out & just bought a printer/scanner, so hubby should be hooking it up tonight so I can take care of scanning them & emailing them out.

****Oh, and one thing I forgot to mention in my review. I love the new Kiosk that the Magic has, located in the atrium lobby area. You can get printouts of your S&S bill at any point, you can add cash $ there if you need to, also with children's accounts. Makes it very nice!

Love the review. We are not booked until February 2013 but I can't wait. I wanted to see if you could tell me a little about your cabin. We are booked in the cabin right below yours. Is there any problems with noise or vibrations from the boat itself and is it worth having a bigger balcony.

We would totally book that cabin again. We love it, the location, the size of the balcony, etc. It was not noisy at all & no different with the vibrations in my opinion. I think you will enjoy your cabin for sure.

I loved your pictures! It was like I was on the cruise with you. We are sailing on the Magic in Sept. I got so caught up in your pictures that I got a little sad when the waiters were singing their farewell song. I started singing it in my head. Lol Can't wait to get back on a cruise ship in Sept. Thanks for your photos.

I've been searching for a very detailed review of the Magic and I'm glad I had some free time today (at work I might say.. ) and had to go all the way to page NINE to find your review.

Great review. We sail on the Magic in 13 days and as you might guess..can't wait!

Once again, great, great review...absolutely wonderful pictures - I think you covered the ship from stem to stern! She's definitely a beauty from every angle- got to cruise her on the inaugural from Galveston & booked once more for August! Yay!
