My husband and I booked a one bedroom suite on the Disney Magic for our honeymoon. This was our first cruise and we wanted to go all out for our honeymoon, and we were not disappointed. The service was unbelievable, breakfast in bed, priority boarding, concierge service 24/7, escorted shore excursions... We never lacked for anything! Our concierge even brought Mickey ice cream bars to our stateroom in the middle of the day! We were a bit on the edge about the price we paid for the suite, but when we saw it, all doubts left our mind! The room was so large we wouldn't have even had to see each other if we didn't want to! I could have never imagined such luxury to be available on a floating vessel. We had a living room, 2 bathrooms (one with a jacuzzi tub!) a full walk in closet, a vanity/desk area and a gorgeous bed. There were 2 very large verandahs that let us experience all of the breathtaking views. Our mini fridge was stocked with all of our favorite sodas and we received a different lunch time snack everyday!

In all honesty, after we experienced Palo, our palates were in love and we couldn't bare to take ourselves away. We dined there the majority of the trip being pampered by our French server, and the Serbian chef, who delighted our taste buds every night with his glorious menu. We sampled and sipped, and dined in nothing than less than the ultimate in luxury. This place quickly warmed our hearts and awakened and delighted our culinary desires. The staff was superb, there was not a single moment we wanted for even one tiny thing and although it was considered the "formal" dining experience it was fine dining without pretense. Our questions were all answered with nothing less than pure hospitality and a genuine delight in our new culinary experiences. Palo's "surcharge" is virtually laughable compared to the dining experience, delightful cuisine and superb staff. This is a do not miss experience!

Our suite was stocked with everything you could imagine, there was no amenity lacking, we even had bottles of h20 spa solar releif gel for those scorching days under the caribbean sun. Even for a suite, I felt the stateroom offered more than we could have anticipated or hoped for. Two verandahs, a lush queen sized bed with feather pillows and duvet, walk in closet, vanity/desk area, jacuzzi tub, two bathrooms, lush hotel style robes, an in room safe, a large living room, dining area, full sized sofa and lots of closet space.

The entertainment was wonderful, broadway caliber performances nightly, that were absolutely breathtaking. There was always something to do and so much variety there was virtually something for everyone. The adults areas onboard were secluded from all children under 18 and were a lovely escape. A private pool deck with pool bar, 2 hot tubs, poolside entertainment, lush lounge chairs, a coffee shop... The adult bars were a great source of entertainment each night with fun things like the "match your mate" game (which we WON!), 70's disco night and great themed parties.

If you are going to partake in shore excursions, be wise and book them through Disney Cruise Line. They take care of all the details, your transportation to and from the excursion site, and peace of mind.

The trip was a glorious romantic honeymoon filled with magic you cannot even imagine. Disney truly does service like no other company. If you havent experienced a Disney cruise, it's a must... What are you waiting for!?!?
