Disney Mediterranean Cruise Day 7
Our Last Day
Disney Mediterranean Cruise Day 7 was our final day aboard the Disney Magic. The final day was packed with fun and activities. Being a sea day without a port stop, the day was filled fine dining, wonderful entertainment, and saying goodbye to new friends.
The last day of a cruise is both joyous and melancholy. You are still on the Mediterranean aboard a beautiful vessel with four coarse meals for lunch and dinner, no responsibilities, a Broadway caliber show to enjoy, maid service, and no worries.
This is the time to say goodbye to other passengers and crew members with whom you have enjoyed the cruise, though. Tomorrow, long plane rides await with jet lag. Then on Monday, it is back to work.
“See You Real Soon”
I tend to be an optimist and try my best to live in the moment. At the end of the night, Mickey Mouse will wave from the stairs of the grand lobby staircase and say, “See you real soon!” Disney does a wonderful job marketing and selling you on booking another cruise (surprised, aren’t you). We have yet to leave one cruise without booking another! You actually get discounts on price and credits for your next voyage doing it this way. So, “see you real soon” is encouraging and helps you start to look forward to your next cruise, while enjoying the memories that you have made.
On Disney Mediterranean Cruise Day 7, we made sure to do our favorite on board activities: lunch at Lumiere’s, Disney Cruise Staff games, and riding AquaDunk. We won two more games, Disney Name that Tune and Disney Trivia. We already had several of the prizes (Disney Cruise Line luggage tags and key chains); so, we gave these to our evening table mates and nice family from Kuwait.
We made sure to make one last tour of the ship to better remember things.
Dinner on Disney Mediterranean Cruise Day 7 was at Animators Palette. On the final night at Animators Palette, you are given drawing paper and markers. You draw a character, which is gathered and will later be used as a part of the animation show that runs through dinner.
The lighting, the projections, the music, the food, the service, and the company made for a wonderful evening.
The headlining show for Disney Mediterranean Cruise Day 7 was Disney Dreams. We had seen Disney Dreams on our Disney Wonder cruise. It had been our favorite Disney Cruise Line show. The show we would see here on the Disney Magic was an updated version with Frozen music added and new, special effects. Our son thought that this one was even better. Dad has a short memory/attention span and is not sure. Mom prefers the original on the Disney Dream. We and everyone else in the packed Buena Vista Theatre were thoroughly entertained and gave a roaring, standing ovation. I believe that the entertainment on the Disney Magic is the best of the four Disney cruise ships.
I would like to make special mention of some of the Disney Magic crew members who made this such an amazing family vacation for us. Our servers, Hellen and Larissa, were amazing, the best that we have had. We have requested them (which Disney tries to fulfill) as our servers on our next Disney Magic cruise. Kasper, our room host, was pleasant, left the room in amazing shape, and provided the towel origami. We came to know Michael and Wendy from the Cruise Staff Team (games and such) on a first name basis. Finally, Veronika from Guest Services went above and beyond to make our cruise special.
