Magic heading back to Miami....

Captain says we will be there in 2 hours for a maximum 1 hour and will still head on to key west on time. We are going for "critical supplies"

No trip report, but so far we have to call the guest services every time we want to flush our toilet. And have seen 3-4 leaks from pipes in the ceiling, 2 flooded staterooms. It's clear it's gonna take some time to work the bugs out. Still contractors onboard working.

Do you think it's possible to ask for some kind of discount or credit because our toilet has not worked at all?

If it were me I would be at least asking to move rooms. Depending how bad things are maybe some compo too, if it was spoiling my cruise.

It is sad to see that there are so many problems after the refurb on what I feel is a superior cruise line.

Carnival did a refurb on a ship called Carnival Sunshine earlier this year there were major problems reported on a number of cruises. Sadly this now seems to be the industry norm, regardless of how prestigious the cruise line is.

I'm sorry to hear about your plumbing problems. Hope you are able to get the essential supplies.

Carnival Sunshine was Carnival Destiny before the refurb. Destiny was plagued with propulsion issues and other problems for years(actually, for a fair amount of her time in service).

Is this normal for a ship to make an unscheduled stop that is not for an emergency?

I don't think so. I couldn't quite hear what the captain said. It sounded like "we have to pick up critical specs(?)". Couldn't understand the last word. Looking at the TV, we were definitely past Miami, and made a u-turn just before noon.

He said we will be here 1 hour.

My thoughts exactly.

I still love DCL the best, but whenever I set foot on ANY cruise ship, I pray and hope everything will be good.

Bad things happen on all cruise lines, even Disney.

Is it just me, or was the Magic in better condition before dry dock?

I certainly never saw these problems reported to this degree before. Of course, most pre-dry dock posts were gushing about it and how it was the best and Dream-class not so much as well.

It sounds like plumbing issues have been popping up on the magic for the last few years, also some similar reports of flooding or leaks on the wonder. U wonder how much of this is new vs trying to rush the shop back from dry dock. May be more publicity bc more disney regulars tried to be on the first sailings or maybe just increased expectations bc of all the hype on the dry dock. Either way looking forward to my next cruise on the fantasy!

Nothing to do with guest cabins, she'll have a very quick turnaround and back out to sea.

We are also on the Magic and having toilet problems. Room 2578. Maybe they will pick up more contractors in Miami!

Update

Like to hear what stateroom you are in (I think everyone with a Disney Magic reservation coming up) Just hoping all the issue are getting worked on and will be resolved soon. I know that the issues with stateroom are getting address ASAP and fixed the minor ones. But this flushing and flooding is continuing and seems that is not getting fixed.

Hope other than your flushing issues (which is a problem) you are enjoying and making the best of your trip.

Thanks
Nan
