Just what I needed. By: billdog1983
Not sure if we were an 8P or 8S in the Spa Balcony category. A little quieter deck than our 7 forward locations of the past. Did not know we had free access to thalio pool in spa. Didn't use the spa at all. Excellent once a day cabin service from "Handsome" who was ALWAYS in such a good mood and positive about life when we ran into him. He is just the kind of person you need around during a hard earned vacation. Once my wife showed me how to manually adjust the water temp beyond the 100.4F temp for a hot shower I was happy.

Cabin was average and bed was comfortable. Closets are roomy, but they are placed in the hallway at the door (only one person at a time, and access to the door/ bathroom is blocked). Towels has holes about half of the days. Balcony was good and comfortable. Shower was odd as it had a plastic curtain vs. shower doors.

Absolutely loved this cabin. The size was perfect. Plenty of storage for a 7 day cruise. The location in relation to the spa elevator/stairs was convenient. The location made for a nice quiet experience. The balcony is nice and high (on the port side) which made the views coming into port very appealing. We found that staying high and forward was not as 'rough' as we had been warned. Although, the motion does not bother us. In fact, I like it while sleeping...must be the baby in me.

The spa cabin was wonderful. The colors are so much better in these cabins. The easy access to the spa and gym was wonderful. There was plenty of room and it was always clean.

Surprisingly Luxurious By: misterkevin
I wanted a more private feel on this cruise so I chose a spa balcony and never regretted it. There’s plenty of room for two with the three closets, two for hanging clothes and the third with extra shelves, multiple drawers and cubbies in the long desk, ample under bed storage, two small side tables with space, and 6 small shelves in the bathroom around the mirror for personal toiletries. The bed was very comfortable with fresh linens and daily turn-down service with pillow chocolates and delightful towel animals. The spa amenities included Elemis shampoo, conditioner, lotion, shower gel and hand soap. These were replaced as I used them with a simple note left on the desk to my excellent cabin steward, Herbaju. The coconut pillow spray was a nice touch, but not my favorite. My cabin was always maintained spotlessly. The shower water pressure was fantastic—better than at home and adjustable by temperature from icy to scalding. Some smart soul who had my cabin previously placed two sticky hooks on the wall across from the bed which turned out to be a nice place to dry wet clothing from our rainy itinerary. There was also a retractable clothesline in the shower proving perfect for wet bathing suits. The room also included a hair dryer which I never used, and a for-fee mini fridge I used for two splits of Korbel to drink on the balcony as we departed Cozumel. The balcony was modest, but private enough. Two deck chairs fit nicely (one reclined by there was no room to use it in a non-upright position) and a small table filled my private ocean view. Cabin temperature was adjustable as well, and I never had a problem with the air conditioning.I had organized a Cabin Crawl and had an opportunity to see all kinds of cabins on the Magic. From the smallest interior on deck one to Ocean Suites, the cabins are uniformly clean and ample with storage. The only décor difference between regular and spa cabins was the color scheme of the carpeting, bed runner, and artwork. I did find the cove balconies on deck three attractive with their proximity to the water.I got a tip from a fellow group member about how to best insure that we’d have excellent service from our steward. On the first day, I left a small bag of chocolates with $20 on the desk with a note. I told him that we appreciated everything he did and that this was in addition to the standard daily tipping we were paying. I guess it was a bit of a bribe, but it was well spent. When I organized the cabin crawl, I also had a fifth of lemon vodka delivered to the room for shots, and Herbaju made sure that we had an extra-large bucket of ice to chill the bottle for my guests. He also took ours and our in laws luggage together early on debarkation so we could easily find our bags at the port.

Great time but lousy food! By: cruisecrunch63
Nice room and our steward was always available for us if we needed anything. Room was well kept with fresh towels provided 2-3 times per day.

My cabin was on deck 6, starboard side, and it was a balcony cabin. The room was identical to the Carnival Conquest balcony room as far as the layout and decor. My room provided plenty of space between the 5 pieces of luggage brought on board between my wife and I. The only problem we had with our room was it overlooked a hot tub and rinse off tower which ruined some of the privacy of having a balcony. In other words, instead of walking onto the balcony and looking over and seeing ocean, we would see people hanging out in the hot tub. It wasn't that bad of an issue and the hot tubs closed at 10pm so noise was never an issue. Overall, good room.

We always take a balcony, but this was our first Spa balcony and it was quite convenient. Carnival has relatively good size for its staterooms, but we have only Celebrity to compare them with. The balcony on Celebrity was larger but their storage was poor.
