Disney Magic

Disney Wonder Cruise Ship

The Disney Magic—along with its sister ship, the Disney Wonder—is a cruise liner that blends classic beauty and grace with all the modern luxuries, technology and comforts that make cruising a pleasure. The Disney Magic boasts 11 expansive decks, a total length of 964 feet, and a maximum width of 106 feet.

Specially commissioned paintings, sculptures and woodwork, as well as rare animation cels from the expansive Disney archive make the ship's Art Deco interior inimitable and distinctive. From its creation, the ship was meant to pay homage to the age when ocean liners—once the primary link between Europe and the Americas—represented an era's very best artists and architects, and evidence of this purpose can be found on every deck.
