    Christmas Cruise

    Having just cruised this past christmas on the Magic I would definatly do it again in a heartbeat! Being on the ship for Christmas was the best , especially since Christmas day wespent on the island of Cozumel ! We've always cruised in April due to our kids spring break schedule and I would compare the crowds to that. Which to me is not that bad. I would say go for it!!!
  2. Well you guys all beat me ! Awesome addition to the ship. We found it actually by accident while we were exploring the ship on embarkation day and so glad we did. Sent from my SM-G930T using Forums mobile app

  6. WOOOHOOOO!!! Love you reviews!! Between the pics the review itself both are fabulous, I feel we here at CC have seen your little girl grow up through the yrs as well, (they seem to do that too fast, lol). We'll be taking our girls on The Magic at Christmas this yr and Doing the Western as well. So we've been reading and watching Youtube videos since we booked it to pass the time. Can't wait to read the rest of your review.

    Breeze vs Magic compared to Sunshine

    Well my family and I have cruised the Breeze 3 times (yes we love it that much, lol) and we've cruised the Sunshine. Magic, well that's coming up in 39 days. We've cruised with our 2 girls who are now 17 and 14, cruising at Spring Break time due to our girls being in school. Both equally loved the Breeze and Sunshine. Between the waterslides, teen clubs , movies on the big screen at night, the Sunshine and Breeze have a lot of the same activities for both adults and kids. When we cruised on the Sunshine, we were with a huge group of our family. Ages from 2 yrs old to 72, had a great time. Cabins from inside to Spa balcony occupied and no complaints. To us the Sunshine was like a mini breeze(with a few exceptions such as Alchemy bar being on the Sunshine or Bonsai Being on the Breeze). Either ship you can't lose! Any questions feel free to ask!

    Spa Rooms, Magic

    11th Floor Balconies on are covered. 12th is not. We've done both decks both, Cloud 9 Spa Balcony on the Breeze and like either one, covered and not. Just so happened when we booked way back on The Magic (654 days ago)we decided not to get a Cloud 9 Spa cabin. Well kicked myself that we didn't . So I kept checking and not too long ago I snagged that baby up, cabin ! Also got some OBC ! We may use the spa maybe a couple of times if that .We just love the tranquility of decks 11 and 12, between the spa lavender smell and the quietness. You'll love it!
  13. Subscribing to this awesome review! We'll be cruising on the Magic This Christmas and loving your review and pics! Thanks so much!
  14. Ok so figured I had the time and the depression of being home has finally worn off (thats cause there's another cruise in the works haha !!) Anyhow gotta say leaving from NY was great, cold but great!! It was nice just hopping on a bus from Providence RI and being dropped off at the cruise terminal... Have no complaints about checking in at the terminal, got there about 12:30 , waitied probably 40 mins and we were on our way to our 8 day cruise!!! Background we were going with a party of 11 ,big for us but we had such a blast! Our two girls who are 11 and 8, mother in law and her friend with her grandson, sister in law with three of her friends! The ship it self was beautiful!! Everything I expected and more .. We've sailed on the dream which was huge and then the Freedom but this ship was so easy to navigate around...Actually the perfect size!! Our cabin which was 8313 under the lido deck which we have done on all our cruises , we loved ..Can't really say we heard noise from above, it was just a great location! Now on to some pics!
