Do you know what is going to be done  Sept 2020? We are going on her not long after that!

They would not announce the hat is expected so early.

This ship is in need of carpet replacement in some areas.   The smell is really bad from the mold.

We were on Magic in January but did not smell mold. Enjoy the layout of the Magic but did feel the Atrium was a little dreary.

 For sure! It was pretty bad around stairs and lower decks seemed worse when I was on her a few weeks ago.

I wa on the Magic and Horizon during March 2019. I love that the Magic gives full access of the promenade deck entirely, period. I wish that the Jacuzzis near Ocean Plaza were removed and better casual furniture was in place. I think the Serenity area could be upgraded to a better overhanging roof or awning with upgraded couches and chairs like the Horizon. The sleeping pods are nice but not for casual drinking or reading or talking with friends new or old.

I thinking of a cruise on Magic in December.  I'm wondering, if it has been refurbished.  If not, is it scheduled to be?

 

It is said to be refurbished 9/12/20. I don’t foresee anything major, since it is a relatively new ship.

She could also use a fresh coat of paint.  We parked by her in Cozumel the other day, she is definitely starting to show her age....  I do love that ship though...

With a significant dry dock in 2016 I would not expect much more than upkeep such as carpet, mattresses, paint etc.  Possible one or upgrades but mostly maintenance type issues.

Thank you!!! I thought it was just us on our sailing that smelled it.  It was pretty bad around stairs and the lower decks like you said.  In addition, I ended up hoarse, and drainage and with a scratchy throat and didn't connect the dots until later; it was the mold.  I was like, I'm out here in this beautiful salt water air, so why am I getting sick?

That would be good enough for me.  It's a beautiful ship, but that moldy carpet needs to be addressed before Sept. 2020 because it will get significantly worse between now and then.

I'm really sensitive to it also. I smelled it immediately.
