20 Years of Disney Magic

Wait, that can't be right!  Disney's been around way longer than 20 years, right?  That's true, but exactly 20 years ago the Disney Magic set sail on it's first ever cruise.  The first ever Disney cruise.  The first ever people at Disney's cruise terminal.  The first ever...

Okay, you probably get it by now.  The Magic was completed and launched 20 years ago.  It has been kept up so well that it still looks and feels brand new.  If there's a small scratch on the side of the ship, someone will fix it right away.  Have you ever seen a light out on a Disney cruise?  Me neither.  There's always work being done to ensure every single guest onboard has the best possible vacation.  Last year, when I was on a short cruise on the Dream, I went to an event where an entertainer talked about the design of the ships, including the color.  The dark blue paint color is harder to maintain than standard white, and needs to be repainted more often.  That just shows how much that Disney cares about their ships.  I'm not sure if there is any celebration happening on the Magic today, but there might have been an announcement of some kind.

Happy birthday, Disney Magic!

Disney Fantasy Made Inaugural Call to Nassau

And it was...

Uneventful.  The port did nothing special to celebrate this eventful occasion.  This is probably because the Fantasy is now six years old, and its sister ship, the Dream, visits Nassau multiple times a week.  Well, at least it happened, and now we know that all of the Disney Cruise Line ships have been to Nassau.  I hope those Nassau people make a bigger effort to celebrate when the future Disney Cruise ships go their for the first time.  As long as it doesn't happen six years into their time of service.

Disney Fantasy to Make Inaugural Call in Nassau, Bahamas

It's finally here!  The Fantasy is going to Nassau!  It's hard to believe that in its six years of service it has never made a stop there.  The Dream certainly has.  Anyway, this odd visit is because of an eleven night cruise that ended earlier this week.  The Fantasy is currently on a three night cruise, stopping at Nassau and Castaway Cay, to get back on the normal schedule (Seven night cruises leaving every Saturday).  I'm not sure what will happen when the Fantasy arrives, but I will be watching today, and I will (try to) update later with a full summary of what happened.

I'm sure whoever is on the Fantasy now will have a fantastic time (I feel like I've used that one before :\)!
