Defunct Cruise Lines
Disney magic came into service in 1998, she was built at the Italian fincantieri shipyards and weighs in at 83,000 tonnes the ships structure is painted in the traditional Disney black and white livery with red funnels, the ships lifeboats are painted yellow which matches the colour of Mickey mouse’s shoe’s, due to safety laws modern lifeboats are required to be orange so special permission had to be obtained from the U.S. Coast Guard.
All four ships in the Disney fleet have a distinctive feature that the ships horn can play theme tunes from some of Disney’s well know films including "When You Wish Upon a Star" and "Yo Ho A Pirate's Life for Me"
On board there is a good range of cabins to choose from with the smallest measuring 184 square feet – far above the industry average, some of the Disney magic’s onboard entertainment includes the Disney theatre-With the latest in sound and light technology, a sports deck, Fitness Area and Aerobics Area, a games arcade and a variety of children’s programmes including a 13 to 17-year-old teens only club.
as with all of Disney’s ships the magic is family orientated so the vessel is lacking some of the facilities you would expect to find on a traditional cruise ship such as a casino and library.
