Day 6: Nassau – Bahamas

Today was our last day on the Disney Magic. We didn’t go ashore in Nassau because we had a big day planned onboard.

After we woke up we had breakfast at Cabanas and than walked around the upper decks to make some pictures of the view over Nassau. We were at port with 3 other cruise ships (Bahamas Cruises, Celebrity Equinox and a Carnival cruise line ship). But I have to be honest, DCL has the prettiest ship!

At 9:45 am Emily had an appointment with her fairy godmother in training Lexi at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at deck 10.

First she got to pick out an outfit. Emily went for a sparkly Cinderella dress. Next was the hair. She got a long ponytail with blue and pink hair and a flower headband. With that she got sparkly nail polish, blue and pink eyeshadow, red lipstick and some blush and off course some glitter in her hair.

As the finishing touch she got a sash, wand and a tiara. With that the whole princess makeover was complete.

Now it was time for a coffee before we start with all sorts of meet and greets. We met with Vampirina, Doc McStuffins, Tiana, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Anna & Elsa.


We got a little hungry from all the meet and greets and decided to have lunch at Lumieres before we went back to the room. Emily took a nap and I started packing the suitcases.

After the suitcases were mostly packed and Emily was awake we met with Becka, Chris and Sophie and decided to do some Disney Trivia. Unfortunately we didn’t win but it was a lot of fun. When we went back to the Lobby/Atrium we saw a lot of characters in their formal attire.

We took pictures with Donald and Minnie before going to Animators Pallet for our last dinner onboard. Without asking they brought out the fried Brie, our favorite appetizer. The meal was again great and the show with sorcerer Mickey amazing.

At 7:30 pm it was time for Pluto’s Pyjama Party in the kids club so we dropped Emily and her friend Sophie of at the Oceaneers Lab while Sander and I went to the upper deck to see for ourselves how the weather was. In the afternoon the weather had turned around and with strong winds and rough seas it was a whole other experience then the days before.

As we went back inside there was an opportunity to meet the captain of the ship, Captain Robert Olmer. As we heard him talk earlier this cruise we noticed he was Dutch. And as we talked with him he told us he is from Fijnaart, which is about 10 minutes from where I grew up.

Shortly before 8:30 pm we picked up the kids from the kids club where they made their own pillowcases to take them to the theater to watch the show Disney Dreams. We saw this show on our last cruise and it was still amazing.

Also this show meant the end of this cruise. We said goodbye to Sophie, Becka and Chris and went back to our room to finish packing so we could put our suitcases in the hallway.

The alarm is set for early tomorrow morning to get breakfast and leave the ship to start the next part of our vacation.

Day 9: Second day at Sea!

Good morning Disney Magic! We started of with some celebrities, the first one was Daisy Duck in her sailor outfit. While waiting in line for Daisy we saw the Princess Gathering downstairs, this is a ticketed event for which you need to reserve upfront, you only get to do this one time and we did this on the first day of the cruise already.

But the line was very short and I took my chance asked if we would be allowed to go one more time, the answer was yes! Right away we could get in line but we first wanted to have a picture with Pluto.

The line was short but the princess took a lot of time to chat with Emily, she proudly showed them all her new bracelets with beads of the princesses.

Right after we went in line for a picture with Character breakfast where Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Goofy visit your table. The breakfast is table service and we were lucky enough to get our own servers for breakfast. Emily might have been more excited about the fact that Alejandro was serving us as Disney friends visiting us.

After breakfast we had a royal meeting with the Queen and Princess of Arendelle, as known as Elsa and Anna from Frozen.

Now we needed to hurry as Mickey Mouse was meeting and this was our last chance with the photographers from Shutters taking the pictures.

After this meeting it was time for another 1,5 hours in the Oceaneer Club for Emily, not something she particularly likes but she can’t join us on the Chocolate and Liquor tasting in Keys which is a 18+ bar.

The tasting was awesome, even better as the Champagne tasting from the night before. It gave a whole new dimension to drinking wine, champagne, port and whiskey. Something I would absolutely do again.

We picked up Emily, took a picture with Mickey Mouse and we went back to our room. Here Emily took a afternoon nap while Danielle and I, ok mainly Danielle, packed our suitcases. And again everything fitted in! We got a bit lucky here as Vueling raised the luggage allowance from 23kg to 25kg.

After Emily woke up we did another round of characters but there were no more professional photographers anymore.

The last night we had dinner in the restaurant were we started: Animator’s Palate. This time we were drawing a figure on a placemat which was later scanned in and part of the show.

Me: Left, Danielle: 2nd form left

After the show we walked around the ship a little bit, bought the last souvenirs before it was time for Disney Dreams – An Enchanted Classic! Maybe the best show of the week, or maybe just as good as the 2 other shows we saw.

After the show we went right back to our room as it was bed time for all of us while tomorrow we need to be present at breakfast at 7:00am!
