Disney prefers the term "re-imagining," but as the Disney Magic is currently docked in Cadiz, Spain, you might call it a renovación. A makeover worthy of any Disney Princess, if you will. Indeed, if you have been following https://www.facebook.com/JohnsJourneys my Facebook page, you've seen the periodic updates regarding the enhancements coming to Disney Cruise Line's original classic ship: the all-newAquaDunk free-fall waterslide, a refreshing transformation of Senses Spa, as well as After Hours, the nighttime adults-only area, plus a new concept for the kids' Oceaneer Club, including Pixie Hollow and theMarvel Avengers Academy, where your little one can train to become your family's very own superhero.
So how does a company like Disney celebrate the re-launch of the re-imagined Disney Magic? They invite celebrities, of course! But, never fear. You, too, are invited to sail along when the ship returns to service in late October.
Once the Disney Magic has had the opportunity to flex her sea legs again, a little over a month after that October re-launch—on December 8th—TCM (Turner Classic Movies channel) is chartering a five-night, movie-themed voyage out of Miami. Sailing to The Bahamas will be actresses Jane Powell (Royal Wedding, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), Margaret O'Brien (Meet Me In St. Louis, Jane Eyre), and Illeana Douglas (Cape Fear, Goodfellas), as well as actors Robert Wagner (Hart to Hart, Austin Powers) and Theodore Bikel (My Fair Lady, The African Queen). Joining in will be film historian, Eddie Muller. Robert Osborne, host of TCM, will of course be on hand, too.
But, perhaps one of the biggest names to join in the film fun will be Jeopardy! host, Alex Trebek. It's unclear as of yet in which events he'll be participating (perhaps movie-themed Jeopardy! contests?), but if you're a film lover, no doubt this cruise would be a great early holiday treat for you. And of course, a sailing to The Bahamas means a stop at nearly every Disney Cruise Line veteran's favorite port of call, Disney's private island,Castaway Cay. You could be lounging on Serenity Bay Beach next to Trebek!
