The Magic's first arrival in Piraeus

Whenever a cruise ship arrives at a port for the first time, it's known as the inaugral visit. and not only is it a big deal for the ship and her passengers, it can be a big deal for the local area, particularly fans of cruising, ships, and such.  The passengers will often gather on the outer decks to take photos or video of the ship's arrival.

The Disney Magicarrived in Piraeus, Greece, for the first time on June 21, 2013, and someone was there onshore to capture the moment.  One of our fellow passengers shared this YouTube video with us, so I wanted to use it for today's post.  The 360-degree view of the Magic as she sails into the port of Piraeus shortly after sunrise is stunning, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did.

And if for some reason the embedded video doesn't display, here is a link.
