This was our 4th cruise and first 4 night. All others were 7 night on the Magic. I was worried that it would not be long enough but it ended up being fine. The main difference is you just don’t get to know your servers and stateroom host like you do on the 7 night. It did feel rushed.
I would not hestiate to take the Magic again. The bigger ship is nice, but not a must have. I did like the adult deck and pool area better. There was also a section on the front of the ship that is part adult and part family that was a hidden gem. I wish I had a picture. It did get really windy there though. They also had some great giant sofa chairs that dh and I snagged one day. It was big enough for both of us to read in.
Animator’s Palate was better on the Dream than the Magic for me. Food was the same. I tried the rainforest room for the first time and loved that. I got a chair massage as well.
Road the Aqua Duck and it was fun, but not a huge draw.
I am posting pictures of decor around the ship, food, and some obvious areas. Let me know if you have questions. I was a great vacation!
