Travel agent recommended it. I am not likely to ever sail Carnival again unless a real steal. Carnival does not understand the definition of Serenity. It was as loud as the other pool areas where adults and children swam and played. ... Read more

The "Magic" is a very large ship, but easy to get around. Very clean, well maintained. We had a great cabin (ocean view) with TWO windows and two bath areas. One had a TUB and was separate from the other. More closet space ... Read more

This was a different experience and a new boat for us. I certainly learned the hard way about using gift cards to fund my sign and sail pass. Bare with me through the rant. I was short on cash this trip-and unlike the previous sailing ... Read more
