Key West, located at the southwestern end of the Florida Keys, is a natural stopping point for cruise ships leaving ports on Florida's East Coast and going to the Western Caribbean. The channel leading to the island is not wide enough for today's very large ships but a medium size ship such as Disney Magic has no difficulty making the call.
Here, we see Disney Magic at Key West's Navy Mole Pier.
Located near the middle of the Western Caribbean, Grand Cayman is another logical place for a ship to call on a Wester Caribbean cruise. Indeed, even though the port has no cruise ship dock, it is so popular that it is not unusual to see a half dozen cruise ships anchored in the bay outside the capital George Town.
Among the ships with Disney Magic during this call was Holland America's Nieuw Amsterdam.
From a passing tender, you get a view of Magic's sleek lines. Although not a true ocean liner, her designers strove to give her the look of a 20th century liner.
The Mexican island of Cozumel is the premier port at the western end of the Caribbean. The port has three cruise ship piers to accommodate the demand for berths. Here, Disney Magic is docking at the Punta Langgasta pier close to downtown San Miguel.
