She made her inaugural visit to the city last year when she sailed up the Mersey not once but twice. Thousands of people descended on the waterfront to see the ship on the first visit, and when she returned a month later, there were a host of entertainments put on for the huge crowds on the Pier Head.
And Disney was so pleased with the reaction, the president of the cruise line reportedly wrote to Mayor Joe Anderson to say what an “overwhelming” experience they had had in the city.
Disney Magic is one of the Disney fleet of luxury cruise ships – alongside the Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy and Disney Wonder. The 964 ft long, 11-deck, 83,000 tonne ship made her maiden voyage in 1998, and can carry up to 2,700 passengers and 945 crew. She has signature yellow lifeboats and yellow trim across her bow, and Art Deco-style interiors.
Passengers are entertained with live shows in the Walt Disney Theatre to fireworks at sea, via deck parties, Aquadunk, MARVEL Avengers Academy, the chance to watch the latest Disney films, and encounters with some of kids’ Disney favourite characters.
Disney Magic will be at the Liverpool Cruise Liner Terminal on Friday, July 14. She is due to arrive in Liverpool at 8am and depart at around 6.45 p.m., as part of a 12-night British Isles cruise which also includes stops in the Hebrides, Kirkwall in the Orkneys, and Newcastle.
