Mediterranean Sea – MSC Magnifica – Christmas Eve Day on the Ship!

My first cruise had begun!!!

We boarded the MSC Magnifica that afternoon after our visit to the Sagrada Familia.

Checked into our cosy cabin with a balcony, we settled in with an early evening to get a good nights sleep to prepare for our full day on board the ship as it sailed from Spain towards Italy!

After a yummy breakfast, we were off to explore the ship!

This is the center court of the ship – decorated for Christmas!

There were MANY flights of stairs!  Our cabin was on the 11th deck…we made our way to the top deck – Deck 13! Video of us as we made it to the top deck!!

Walking through one of the 17 bars and lounges on the ship! This bar was located at the stern of the ship!

As we headed back to our room to change into our bathing suits, people singing Christmas carols was in full swing at centre court!

Changed into our bathing suits, we braved the cold and hit the hot tub! There was the covered pool area and the uncovered pool area. The covered pool area was packed as it was the warmer location! The uncovered pool area not so popular as it was cold outside. This is the outside pool area:

Of the two hots tubs available – one was full and the other, we joined two women from Bordeaux, France. We spent the afternoon here and inside at the Thermal Spa where we warmed up in the sauna, steam room and indoor hot tubs!!!

Relaxed…..enjoying our ecstastic day……it was time to prepare for our 6:00pm seating for Christmas Eve dinner at the Quattro Venti restaurant.

S, xo
