At Sea

Saturday July 12th was our full day at sea. I was up early that morning and I decided to head down to a lounge and catch up on some reading. But, on my way to said lounge, a Disney Cruise employee suggested that I take some pictures of the ship instead.

Good idea. I was able to capture a lot of images of a ship that seemed abandoned. The reality, of course, is that I simply get up far too early in the mornings. Most of the passengers were still sleeping.

The view from our stateroom veranda. Each morning brought amazing views. Today all we would see is the ocean. Click on any image for a larger photo and slideshow.

Shutter’s is the photography service on board the Disney Magic. I later learned that all of the photography services are outsourced to a third-party. I suspect that Disney gets a percentage of the sales. But I certainly did my part to capture memories.

All of the decks offer unique carpet patterns. Here are two from one of the main decks.

And then the carpets from Deck 7 and Deck 5. My understanding is that there are hundreds of unique carpet themes on board the ship. I don’t know how many because I kept losing count.

Here are a few shots of the main atrium on board the ship. The centrepiece would be Lumiere’s.

The only time that I did not see a line up at Guest Services. It was about 5 in the morning.

Carioca’s is one of three main dining restaurants on board the ship.

Cabanas is an all you can eat buffet style cafeteria located on the top deck.

Quiet right now. But in a few hours this area of the ship would be packed with passengers.

Lorraine and I enjoyed some hot chocolate here at the Cove Cafe. Just the two of us.

Each evening brought a new dining experience.

And each dining experience brought an opportunity to ingest unnecessary calories.

Turndown service would create a new towel figure every evening.

And the view from the stateroom was just as captivating at the end of the day.

We arrived back to Venice the following day.
