Cabanas

Feeling quite flushed after our drinking session (I’m such a lightweight when it comes to alcohol as I don’t drink that often!) we decided to go up on Deck 9 and grab some lunch from Cabanas.

I went into detail about this buffet in yesterday’s trip report, so won’t go into it again now.

Today’s food choices were dire – I had some hot prawn dish, and it was not good, so I didn’t eat that, and I can’t even remember what Steve had as we’ve got no photo evidence!

So in the end, we got a burger, hot dog, and fries from the Duck-In Diner, which we so much better.

Our plate of mini desserts was okay, but the churros were just plain awful – overcooked, dry, and cold. They went straight in the bin!





We spent a lot of the day doing not much else, just chilling, or wandering around the ship. So I’ve included some more photos after the food.

Disney Trivia

One thing that we had favorited on the Navigator App was the afternoon Disney Trivia (quiz) in D’Lounge (Deck 4, Mid-Ship).

There was only a small handful of teams, and the questions were pretty hard. However, we got 19/25 correct and were the winners!

I can hold my Disney trivia head up high, and thank my luck for watching a few Disney films on the cruise that helped with some of the answers!

Our prize was a DCL keyring that you can only get by winning one of the quizzes on board the ship. But the Crew Member knows what’s up, and also said “or on eBay or Facebook Marketplace”.

Prior to the D’Lounge opening up, we had been sitting in the Atrium watching Chip ‘n’ Dale doing one of their “Appear & Waves”, and there was a film crew setting up too. They were apparently shooting a commercial. How exciting!

As we then exited after the quiz, three Disney Princesses – Belle, Ariel, and Mulan walked past us, so we were able to have a quick wave, and knock a few more characters off the list of them on board!

Leaving Out Our Luggage

We headed back to our stateroom in the late afternoon to finish packing our suitcases as didn’t want to have to rush back after dinner.

On the last night of your cruise, you are given colored character luggage tags to attach to your bags.

On the back of the tags is a space to write down how many pieces of luggage you have, your stateroom number, your name, and your full address.

It advises you to keep all valuables with you.

You then leave your luggage outside your stateroom door by 10:30 pm so that they can be taken off the ship and transferred to the terminal for collection when you disembark.

Now, you don’t have to do this and can carry your own luggage with you when you leave, but bear in mind that you will have to take it all with you when going to breakfast, and around the ship, until you leave.

We had 3 cases in total with us (I overpacked!) plus a backpack and my handbag, so it was just easier to leave them for transfer. Even if I had been more mobile, I probably would have done the same.

Main Dining Room: Lumiere’s

We left our cases outside the door as we went down to Lumiere’s for our final dinner upon the Disney Magic.

This was the very first restaurant we ate at, so it seemed fitting that it was also our last!

It would also be the restaurant for us to have breakfast at tomorrow morning.

As with a lot of venues on the ship, I’ve already spoken in detail about them in previous days, and will do the same for Lumiere’s!

There is, however, the food to talk about, so lets get to that.

Lumiere’s »

Bread Service…

  • French Baguette
  • Whole Grain Rolls
  • Dinner Rolls
  • Black Olive Oil for Dipping

Bread service this time around was slightly better, but definitely still not as fresh as it could be.

Appetizer…

Me: Breaded and Deep Fried Brie – with an Orange and Cranberry Chutney

Steve: Duck Confit – Slow Cooked Dug Leg pulled and garnished with Craisins and Walnuts

To Share: Farmhouse Salad – Baby Spinach, Asparagus, Cherry Tomatoes, and Fingerling Potatoes served with a Goat Cheese Crostini and an Olive Vinaigrette

I had the Brie starter (which Steve had last time) and it was yummy. I do love Brie!

Steve wasn’t overly enamored with the duck starter, but we also had the Farmhouse Salad which he could tuck into.

Entrée…

Both: Chateaubriand-Roasted Filet Steak – Roasted Filet Steak, Crushed New Potatoes with Shallots, Buttered Green beans, Red Wine Jus, and a Bèarnaise Sauce on the Side

I had the Chateaubriand on my first night, and it was so good, I couldn’t pass it up. Steve had the same, and both agreed it was a tasty cut of beef, cooked just right.

Dessert…

Me: Tahitian Vanilla Crème Brûlée  – with Almond Biscotti

Steve: Apple Tart Tatin – Caramelized Baked Apple served with Vanilla Ice Cream

For dessert, we basically swapped what we both had on our first night. Both were excellent, but I think the apple tart wins out!

Cocktails…

Me: Double Crowned – Crown Royal, Chambord, Cointreau, Cranberry Juice, Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice ($9 + 18% Autogratuity $1.62 + Tip $1.38 = $12)

Despite my alcohol consumption earlier, I did manage to squeeze in one last cocktail, which also had a sugar rim – fancy!

I knew that Chambord is a raspberry liqueur and Cointreau is an orange liqueur, but I had no idea what Crown Royal was. Upon looking (just now), I’ve found out that it is a Canadian Whisky. Considering I don’t consider myself to like Whisky, I am shocked, as I really loved this cocktail!

After dinner, we watch the Lion King out on Funnel Vision – and feeling so sad it was our last night.

Earlier in the day, Steve had gone around the ship and taken some photos of the different art on the walls – I’m going to share those below.

We headed back to our stateroom where we were greeted by our final towel animal – a shark. I also requested a bucket of ice as per usual.

It was then lights out as we had to make sure to get up early tomorrow and be down for breakfast by 8:15 am. We are really going to miss being on this cruise!

And that’s it for day 6 of Our First Disney Cruise 2021! Tomorrow we have our final breakfast on board the Disney Magic before disembarking and going back to reality.
