Ship Facts: Carnival Magic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Magic Deck Plans
Love to cruise
I love to cruise! We sailed Magic last December and enjoyed every minute.

This cruise was stressful. Too many people cruising with too few people to meet the demands of the people on the cruise. The stewards and others seemed to not be motivated, seemed not to be happy in their jobs, and careless with their tasks. (one person in particular was always leaning on her mop and would swipe it every few minutes then lean again.)

Our cabin steward was exceptionally good. (Ruel was his name)

The food on the buffet was not as good as we had expected. The menu basically never changed. The desserts were awful..of course, us Texans like SWEET. The long lines were like cattle being fed. More serving lines?

The main dining room was wonderful food. However, the attendants were not motivated...too many tables and demands for the number of people to meet those demands. Certainly not fine dining experience. The last cruise experience did not present this type of service at all.

It is my idea that these people do not feel they are working for their tips and need not hustle. That might be the wrong perception....

There were two nice shows on the trip. If you enjoy trivia stuff, then this cruise was a wonderful time for you. We enjoy the shows. The comedy shows were great and that helped us to be happy. (We would prefer shows each night.) I overlooked the final night show which used passengers on stage..a most unusual (inexpensive?) event.

We will sail Canival again. I wait for improvements of the Magic.
