Disney Cruise Lines’ cruise ship Disney Magic has emerged from six weeks of dry dock in Cadiz, Spain, with ‘reimagineered’ spaces for families and adults alike.
Highlights include the revamped atrium, which now boasts an art deco chandelier, inspired by rays of the sun.
As we reported in April, the kids’ clubs have been given a complete overhaul, with new attractions including the Marvel’s Avengers Academy and Andy’s Room – a revamp of the teens’ area is on the cards for a later date. Adults have a new spa, and the nighttime entertainment district has a new look.
But the biggest change of all is to the upper decks, where there’s a new Huey, Dewey and Louie-themed toddler splash zone, a Twist ‘n’ Spout water slide, plus the AquaDunk, a three-story body slide that extends 20 feet, as a translucent tube, over the side of the ship.
See the slide show below for images of the reimagineered Disney Magic.
