Late for this thread but at least I got in at the very last minute!! I am watching the Magic making her turn in the yacht basin and preparing to back in to the pier.

We were deck 8 aft last Sunday watching the turnaround but did not see the tug then.

Hope Ray got outta bed in time to observe and post in his blog.

I didn't start packing until this morning so I watched on TV. I asked at breakfast of some people that had a balconies if anyone saw a tug and they looked at me with that clueless look. I doubt if 2% even notice.

We had some mechanical problems leaving Cozumel and was delayed about an hour.......hmmmmmmmmm.....just when I was thinking it may be fixed.

If you want to be in the Brunch by 9-9:15 you'll need to stand in line for at least 30 minutes. No problem on the 2fer, not many there late, it's getting in for the 1st one that's the problem. BTW--the menu is great once you get in.
I know the cattle start lining up well before a venue, any venue, opens, and then complain about how long they had to wait. Well, what did you expect? It wasn't open, duh.

I often don't make it to breakfast before 11 or so.

Hi Waiting, I didnt know you posted here. I did magic I believe the week before Snoozeman, Sept 30th.

I love the Magic. She my new favorite Carnival ship. I love the emerald green and decorating.

I thought the brunch was a waste as far as the comedy and didnt like waiting a extra hour to eat breakfast. I did go twice to the brunch for the food and just had coffee and a roll or something earlier to tide me over. I think its here to say as a way to cut out serving one meal in the MDR, a cost cutting measure.

As I stated in beginning, It's perfect for those that don't get up until after 10:00 am. You'll love it.

I'd prefer to eat earlier, but I can live with it as the menu is so very good. I guess I just need to stay up late on sea days.

Or just jog for an hour or two before brunch.

I liked the chicken quesidila (sp) with egg on top however you want it cooked. They gave me two kinds of hot sauce once.. and three kinds the other time I ordered it on Magic.

Everyone else at my table ordered the salmon.

TY.

I was thinking of ordering the steak and eggs to take a picture and then throw the eggs away (don't like them). Maybe the same with the chicken quesadilla.
