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.
The jetleg this morning was het little better than yesterday but we still woke up pretty early. After Sander got us some breakfast from a close by Starbucks we packed all our stuff together and checked out of this hotel.
After we got some gas we were on our way to Miami, the Port of Miami to be exact. It was about an hour drive over the I95 followed by the I395 in the direction of South Beach. There was lots of traffic but we took the express lanes which was a lot faster. After we drove through the tunnel close to the Port we saw the Disney Magic.
We parked our car in parking garage C right on the other side of the street of terminal C. So it was like a 15 second walk from the garage to the terminal. Very convenient.
After we went through security we took pictures with both Mickey and Minnie and after that our boarding group (number 4) was called so it was our turn to board the ship.
We walked around a little bit and decided to get lunch at Lumieres. Here we saw Mizar, he was one of the service we had on our last cruise on the Disney Magic.
Next stop was the Kids Clubs. We registered Emily and took a look around and guess who came to visit….. Rapunzel and Tiana. They played games drew nice pictures. We walked around the pool deck and enjoyed the nice Florida weather.
At 1:30 pm we were able to go to our stateroom to get rid of our backpacks and a little later we decided to take a short nap before the mandatory safety drill started followed by the Sail-a-wave party a deck 9 which was so much fun.
Tonight we had dinner at Rapunzel’s Royal Table where we celebrated her Birthday. After dinner we went shopping, took some pictures and went back to our stateroom because we were all so tire.
Tomorrow will be our first port-of-Call of this cruise and it will be Key West and we’re really looking forward to it.
