There's lots happening aboard the Disney Magic during a Day at Sea. After our champagne brunch at Palo on Thursday, May 27, we stopped to admire the Princess Gathering in the Lobby Atrium.
At the Oceaneer Lab, we expected to find Nicolas playing a video game by now, impressively he was still playing chess with a new friend.
Time continued to slow down as we sailed the Mediterranean. We enjoyed the afternoon with a nap, browsing through the stores and attending a Guest Lecturer on Tunis. We missed the lecture on Valletta, Malta. Joseph G. Mayers described Tunis as the "Gateway to Africa". This was an adults-only lecture where we learned about the souks, Islamic treasures and the ancient city of Carthage.
After a wonderful day of entertainment and respite, we changed our attire from shipboard casual to formal. Formal night allows families to dress up and feel the luxurious side of cruising.
Our family went to the Walt Disney Theatre to see the 6:30 p.m. "Twice Charmed" show. It's the Cinderella with a twist. Fantastic!
Nicolas returned to the Oceaneer Lab for the 7:30 p.m. Wonderful World of Magic program to see some of the "best known magic tricks and even some of the secrets".
Michael and I headed to Rockin' Bar D for the 7:45 p.m. family cabaret.
I had a banana daiquiri and Michael enjoyed a beer while watching the musical comedy of Smooth-E. Hilarious!
We had portraits taken on our way to dinner:
Tonight's menu was a Prince and Princess Dinner served in Lumiere's.
I really enjoy Disney Cruise Line's rotational dining. Guests rotate each night to one of the 3 main sit-down restaurants and your servers rotate with you! Our assigned rotation worked very well as we were in the most formal of the restaurants on this evening.
The servers are extremely attentive to your children:
After a walk in the ocean breeze, some more Oceaneer Lab time for Nicolas and an order of room service cookies, we fell asleep once again in our cozy cabin. The next morning, we would arrive the impressive harbor of Valletta, Malta. We intended to be up on deck to enjoy the spectacular views.
