We explore Disney Magic

11th August 2015

Last week we were lucky enough to explore the enchanting atmosphere onboard Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Magic before she set sail for the sunny Mediterranean.

With a picturesque backdrop of the white cliffs of Dover behind us we boarded Disney Magic with a flurry of excitement and intrigue wondering what Disney delights we were about to encounter.

The magic was evident in every detail from the minute we stepped onboard. From the music to the décor and even the Mickey Mouse hands above the lift pointing to each floor. The look and feel throughout Disney Magic is a classic Art Deco design whilst the presence of Mickey Mouse and friends can be felt in every detail. Popular films such as Toy Story come to life in the kids zones with a giant Slink slide and life size Hamm.

Dining onboard is a true delight with concept restaurants and dedicated waiter/waitress teams who move with you between venues each night and memorise your every need. Make sure you try the chocolate souflee in Palo, you'll soon see why it deserves such a legendary status.

Check out our photos from the day and find out who makes a surprise star appearance.

Claire Experiences the Magic of Disney Cruise Lines

24th February 2010

Updated April 2018

After sending a well-deserving member of the team - Claire - off on a fabulous 3 night Disney Cruise Line Bahamian cruise onboard Disney Wonder (the sister ship of the Disney Magic), she was all too eager to share her experience upon return. 



A smooth check-in was a good start to my holiday, I was impressed with the spacious Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal used by Disney Cruise Line, and it was great fun walking through Mickey's ears to board the ship. From the moment you set foot onboard the crew make you feel extra special – I won’t spoil the special surprise, you’ll need to cruise with Disney to see why!

The ship is in excellent condition, and my stateroom was a Deluxe Oceanview on deck 5. All staterooms have a bath with shower which is a plus. I found it very easy to find my way around the ship from here; it’s not that big and by the second day you’ll know where everything is located.

The ship offers fantastic entertainment for all her guests; Disney characters are always on hand to entertain adults and kids alike. One night of my cruise was ‘Pirate night’ with everyone dressing up in keeping with the theme.  If you're lucky enought to have a themed night during your cruise, definitely join in - it’s brilliant fun! There was also a fireworks display at sea, something that Disney Cruise Line do on most of their cruises (weather permitting), and I can assure you it was a blast! I also enjoyed shows on each night, they are truly magical and not to be missed, I especially recommend the Toy Story production show.


Now for the best part - the food is out of this world! My favourite restaurant was the Italian restaurant Palo. Its adult only, but don’t worry, the children will be more than happy to check out the kids clubs while mum and dad take a break to be wined and dined in style! I advise making a reservation in advance though, as space is limited and it’s very popular!

The dining onboard is based on a rotational dining system, where you dine in a different restaurant every 3 nights, with the same waiting staff moving with you. One night you can eat in the Animators Palate, decorated with black and white sketches of Disney characters that change to colour as you dine - very different! You’ll also have the choice of Tiana's Place, Tritons, 
Cabanas, Diasy de-Lites, and Pinocchio's Pizza - eachoffering outstanding dishes and service. All that's left to say is get packing now and sample the Disney Difference!

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
