DISNEY MAGIC Part 6, the final one

Saturday 13th July 2013
Here we are back in Barcelona again, on a warm but grey-sky morning. Our breakfast timing was for 8.15 a.m. and many of us spent a pleasant time watching the other ship arrivals before we could go and eat in Parrot Cay again.

Adventure of the Seas


Grand Holiday arrived in the harbour entrance and soon turned, so she was far along the waterway

I was off the ship at 9.15 a.m. to take the port bus into the end of the Ramblas, and then enjoy a quiet coffee. Several of us then met up to take a final harbour tour before going to the airport for our flights home to various destinations.

I really enjoyed my 4 nights on DISNEY MAGIC. We were a big group of adults, although many people think the Disney product is for children. I think we can say that most of us had a fascinating and enjoyable time, because the layout and facilities of the ship offer so many choices for adults and children of all ages. I would certainly recommend trying this traditional-looking and well-run ship, and I look forward to seeing her again in the future.
