There's magic on the water

A big friendly giant paid a visit to the Port of Cork this week in the form of the cruise ship Disney Magic.

The huge vessel, capable of holding 2,713 guests, made her maiden call to Cobh on Tuesday as part of Disney Cruise Line’s new seven night British Isles cruise.

To mark the vessel’s maiden call, and to ensure a warm welcome for the passengers to Cobh, a number of free family focused events took place on the promenade in Cobh.

Chief Executive Brendan Keating said: “Welcoming the Disney Magic to Cork is a real honour for the Port of Cork and we look forward to further calls from this admired cruise line.”

Disney Cruise Line described Cork as “home to a vibrant culinary scene and a plethora of pubs, shops and cafes”.

Following a request by Disney Cruise Line, the deep-water quay in Cobh was closed to the public from 2pm until the Disney Magic departed again at 6.15pm.

As the colossal liner pulled away, a band of famous and much-loved Disney characters were on deck to wave goodbye as the liner passed the promenade in Cobh and out towards open sea.
