The Soul Cat Lounge Will Feel Like The Big Apple at Sea

Straight out of Joe’s jazzy world in Soul, comes the Soul Cat Lounge which is located on Deck 3. It is designed like Joe Gardner’s favorite music spot in New York City, the Half Note Lounge.

The live music will be classic smooth jazz, and the atmosphere is meant to “instantly transport guests to a classic New York jazz club appointed with decorative details like brick walls, wood accents, and plenty of rich leather seating around a stage set for live music.” Table-side Manhattans and martinis add to the metropolitan theme.

Other Improvements on DCL’s Magic Cruise Ship

Additionally, all concierge areas received enhancements. The cruise ship first set sail in 1998, so the Disney Magic team gladly updated and refurbished these spaces. It also received technological upgrades for environmental sustainability purposes and reusable energy.

The Disney Magic’s next journey is an eight-night trip to San Juan! Will you be on it?

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
