The Disney Magic Cruise Ship Staterooms

You can choose from several different types of staterooms on the Disney Magic cruise ship. In fact there are so many different types it can get confusing! The main differences are the sizes and if it's an inside or ocean view stateroom.

Many of the ocean view staterooms in the Disney Magic have beautiful private verandah's for fantastic views of the scenery. Others have portholes for a view of the ocean. Inside staterooms of course have no direct view of the ocean.

Most staterooms inside the Disney Magic cruise ship are for families that sleep up to 7 people and range from 184 sq. ft. up to a whopping 1,029 sq. ft. of space! Here's a tip when you get a stateroom if you get seasick.

The staterooms to the front and back of the cruise ship have the most movement as the ship goes up and down waves. So pick one that is in the middle of the ship. That part of the ship has the least movement and often none at all.
