You've got a friend in Me(d) - Index

Hello and welcome to our (slightly delayed) 2016 Disney Magic cruise trip report.

Your cast is:
Me, Lucy (25) and Ollie (also 25). We are recent cruising converts, having done our first cruise in 2015 on the Disney Dream.

We had an amazing trip, made all the more special by a particularly magical moment on Day 6…

Our itinerary was 2 nights in Salou, 2 nights Barcelona and a 7 night Mediterranean cruise on the Disney Magic.

Pre trip report
Day 1 – Travel day, Salou
Day 2 – Port Aventura
Day 3 – Port Aventura, Barcelona
Day 4 – Barcelona, including Sagrada Familia and Park Gόell
Day 5 – Boarding the Disney Magic
Day 6 – Day at Sea and a particularly magical evening
Day 7 – Salerno – Pompeii
Day 8 – Civitavecchia – Rome
Day 9 – Livorno – Florence
Day 10 – Villefranche
Day 11 – Day at Sea and Day 12 – Disembarkation and going home
Final Thoughts and Future Plans

If the suspense is too much, feel free to check out our 2013 and 2015 Florida trips here -

The ‘When is the last trip not the last?’ trip – Summer 2013
Toarin’ – August 2015

Yaaaay! Thank you for doing this. Will be following with interest as we are doing the same cruise in September.

(I'm still working on my November 2016 DLP report so no worries. Those things take time!)

Thanks Gill. Hopefully the cruise days will be of some use

My trip reports always take a while, but they get there eventually!

I'm enjoying your trip report, this and my enjoyment doing a pre trip for our 2017 holiday has led me to embark on my own Disney Cruise trip report from 2015. Part 1 up soon!
Following yours too.

Gillian.

Really looking forward to reading this as trying to persuade my husband it's worth the big bucks!

I'm so glad you did a trip report, I really enjoyed reading it. Youa lso put me to shame by writing it so quickly!

Definitely worth it! We tried to do it on a budget as much as possible. We had an inside stateroom and didn't do the Disney excursions. We still had a great time! I hope you manage to persuade him
