Relaxing time on the Magic
Destination: Western Caribbean
Our first sea day was spent in the spa. My husband got the gent's package- hair trim, shave and facial. His skin was smooth as ice and felt soft and supple. We eventually got dressed for our first formal night and headed down to any time dining. This was the first time I've ever waited 45 minutes at any time dining to get a table. The maitre d More came out and we asked why it was taking so long. He said 'you all decided to come at the same time.' It was 7:30, which is peak dining time. Our dinner was delicious and the lobster feast continued until the chef stopped serving them.
The 2nd sea day was an echo of the first- total relaxation. The next 3 days were port days. On Thursday evening, we bought two watches from the ship stores. They promised us they were good deals and we were on such a vacation high we believed them. (After getting home, we found a few places we could have gotten them cheaper but live and learn.) Friday night we had rough seas and I got sick for the first time ever. Saturday was beautiful. Sunday disembarkation was a night mare because customs had to take extra steps to clear the ship. We didn't get to our car until 12:30.
The Magic is a beautiful ship. It is in the Carnival fleet so you get what you pay for- nothing more, nothing less. Less

Right behind the elevators. All the music from the lobby on 3 can clearly be heard in the cabin. It's not quiet until the lobby shuts down.
