Itinerary: Eastern Caribbean

We just returned from a week on the Disney Magic and had a great time. The children's program is phenomenal - our 8-year old daughter had a great time and would have stay there all week if we let her! The program runs from 9 am to midnight or 1 am and is far better in terms of quantity and quality than on the Majesty of the Seas, which we were on two years ago. The food, in general, is fine, though not quite as fancy as on Royal Caribbean. Palo's, the adult-only restaurant, was excellent and worth doing for an evening. We enjoyed rotating through the three restaurants and liked the overall decor of the ship. We had a cabin with a verandah and strongly recommend it. It costs a few hundred more than a porthole room, but it really is nice to be able to sit out on your verandah and watch the water go by, especially at night. The room itself was huge and very comfortable, and the split bathroom made getting ready for dinner much faster. Lots of fun Disney activities, as to be expected, including several very nicely-done shows, especially "Disney Dreams". This was an excellent show that both children and adults really seemed to enjoy. The ship was immaculately clean, which my wife really appreciated, and all of the crew and staff were unfailingly cheerful and friendly. St. Maarten and St. Thomas were fine, but Castaway Cay, Disney's private island, was fabulous. Beautiful water and beaches and lots to do, including two nice snorkeling trails. Much nicer than Royal Caribbean's Labadee private island. Overall, a great vacation for adults and kids. The only real downside is the extra cost over a Royal Caribbean or Carnival cruise.
