Disney Magic, Deck 3 Forward


Formerly Diversions, O'Gills has been redecorated into an Irish bar, although it's an “Irish bar” in the same way that Lucky Charms is an “Irish breakfast”, which is to say not very. Sure, there's a clover pattern woven into the new green carpet, and background music that features a lot of fiddle and flute and U2. Nine wall-mounted televisions provide live satellite coverage of whatever sports are being played around the world.

Still, O'Gills is a comfortable place to grab a drink and watch TV. Comfortable burgundy leather banquettes are built into the wall, and padded leather armchairs surround the tables set within the banquettes. About a dozen bar-height tables and stools are set in the middle of the room and provide the best views of the most televisions.

The bar menu includes a beer flight of 5 five-ounce brews ($9.75). There's also a selection of Irish whiskeys: Tullamore Dew ($9.25), Kilbeggan ($9.25), Middleton ($11.50), and Connemara ($12.50). Beyond these are standard drinks you'll find throughout the ship, including cocktails, red, white and sparkling wines, Scotch and whiskeys. The cocktails are reasonably priced at $5.75 each. Try the Royal Velvet, a mix of Guinness stout and champagne.

Comparing the Ships

O'Gill's on the Magic joins the Fantasy's bar of the same name. Along with the Dream's 687 , these are the fleet's upscale sports bars. The Magic's O'Gills addition of bigger televisions make it easier to watch events from across the room. The open seating at Diversions on the Wonder means you’re more likely to interact with other guests, whereas you can keep to yourself easier at 687 and both O’Gills.
