Thank you to Cruise Critic for responding me to since Carnival has NO intention of addressing our serious issues we obtain on our First and ONLY Cruise we will EVER take. I am going to copy and past what I posted to Carnival's facebook ... Read more

I was reluctant to book a Thanksgiving cruise but it was my boyfriend's 35th birthday and I wanted to surprise him with something memorable. Both embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. Let's jump right in: The Ship: The ... Read more

Food A. To many people to serve at one time at buffets. B. Disappointed because Guy's famous Bar-B- Que was only opened for one day of the entire 5 days and for 2 and a half hours at that. Never did get to sample his wonderful ... Read more

We started out our vacation spending a few days exploring Orlando prior to the cruise and parked off site at Lots of Honor. It was only a short 45 min drive via 528 toll road with around $5 in tolls and we paid less then half of what we ... Read more

My two sisters and I went on this cruise together and had a nice time. We had a balcony cabin which was of course tight with the 3 of us, however, we managed nicely. Unfortunately our neighboring cabin kept smoking on their balcony every ... Read more

This was a new cruise for us as we had never been to the southern caribbean. We had anytime dinning and were thrilled with the service and wait staff lead by Alejandro and his team waiter Gede. If you are in the southern lights dinning ... Read more

I will keep my review short. The path we took to get to the southern Caribbean was extremely bumpy. I have been off the ship for three days and am still a little shaky. But that is the ONLY complaint I had. Food was fantastic. I ... Read more

This cruise chose me. I won this cruise on my cruise last May, playing Wheel of Fortune. The Magic was clean and well kept. We ate at every food venue on board, and everything was good, no complaints. Our room was cleaned every ... Read more

We thought overall it was a very good cruise and well organized. Yes, there were some mis-cues, but once we straightened them out, the mis-cues were corrected and we carried on. I can tell you emphatically that those reviews that thought ... Read more

This was our first Halloween Cruise. I loved being able to dress in costume and not be the only adult. Some of the costumes were questionable but there were a lot of great ones. The ship didn't seem to crowded even with 4000 people. ... Read more

my group of 4 middle aged couples loved this cruise, the service was impeccable and the cruise director, Rev. Dr E a young black male that was the funniest director of all my 8 cruises. The cabins were larger than other ships and very ... Read more

We did enjoy our get away, but Carnival Magic was not as good as our previous 4 Carnival cruises on the Fantasy, Dream, and Liberty. It started out with us having to go to Guest Services just to get our cabin floor swept, since it had not ... Read more

My mom and I chose the Magic in hopes that it would offer more than Carnival cruises out of Tampa (smaller ships that can get under the bridge from the Port of Tampa). We previously cruised on the Carnival Paradise, a ship half the size of ... Read more

We booked this cruise over a year ago. Traveled with friends. The four of us drove down from North Carolina the day before the cruise and stayed at the Residence Inn. We had the stay, park, and cruise package. So convenient. It includes ... Read more

Disclaimer -- I haven't cruised with Carnival since 2010, so things have changed since then, in my opinion. We had an absolute blast cruising with friends for the 1st time! We sailed on Carnival Magic Oct 15-22 , 2016. 2 couples in our ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we were looking for a younger crowd, and we liked the destination ports since we had not visited those before. I've been on the Carnival Sensation and the Allure of the Seas prior to this cruise. Even ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we had our two children. It was great! They acknowledged the kids at all times, gave me a break at dinner by even cutting their steaks. As a mom that in itself was a wonderful treat. Our cabin steward tended ... Read more

Sailed on October 01, 2016 out of Port Canaveral. This was our seventh cruise with Carnival. We booked a suite (room 7234), so we had priority boarding. My husband and I took our 16-year-old daughter and her best friend. They were ... Read more

SHIP The ship was absolutely beautiful. I loved the decor, very tasteful, not gawdy. I found the ship to be huge and got my exercise daily. We made the decision to cut through deck 5 to reduce the feel of the long walk from one end of ... Read more

This was our 9th cruise with CC. We were disappointed. Service was way down. Sat at tables many times and never a waiter came by. Had to hunt down someone if we wanted a drink. A few times I'd be standing at a bar and others would come ... Read more

We are retired and take 2 or 3 Carnival cruises a year. We chose a Premium Vista Balcony cabin. This cabin was more expensive than the standard one and would appeal most to those who prefer to enjoy the outdoor space in a private setting. ... Read more

Embarkation went smoothly and our room was ready at 1:30 and our luggage was delivered early evening. The elevators were crazy jam packed and hard to get for the first 24 hours and then it smoothed out. Debarkation at each port was a ... Read more
