Majestic cruise ship Disney Magic makes maiden visit to Cobh

Next Tuesday (4th September), the Disney-themed cruise ship Disney Magic will visit Cobh. This is the first time the Disney cruise liner will visit the cruise ship hot spot of Cobh. While the public won’t be allowed on board the ship it will be docked all day until 6 pm so you can get a close-up look at one of the most magical ships on the sea. 

The unique vessel goes all in on the cartoon effect, painted in Mickey Mouse inspired colours with a statue of Goofy hanging on the hull. The ship’s horn plays the first notes of the ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’!

Onboard there are live Broadway-style shows, movie theatres and Disney themed parties. The ship’s forward funnel even has a LED screen so guests can watch movies and shows on the big screen from the deck and outdoor pool.

If you want to take a look at this impressive ship it can be viewed from Cobh docks all day Tuesday before it heads back out to sea. The following day it will stop off in Dublin and then continue on its journey around England and Scotland.
