Carnival Magic review
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Food was mediocre at best. Buffet lines were not unbearably long, but at some times there was literally no line open (i.e. 4 in the afternoon) and all you could get was a slice of pizza or a deli sandwich. For such a large ship, this is ridiculous, and we have always been able to find a buffet line open on a Carnival cruise.
We never used the formal dining room and when we went to guest services to change the automatic add on tipping, we were treated like "second class" citizens because we wanted to give our own tips. We saw no need to give huge tips to maitre de and dining room staff when we did not utilize. The other tips we gave were more than the suggested amounts (alternative services and cabin stewards).
We would be hard pressed to recommend this ship to others, or any other Carnival cruise at this point.
However, waterpark was excellent for children, as well as the mini golf and other play areas for kids. Cabin stewards were excellent. Ship looks nice and the entertainment/comedy clubs were good. We did have a few good days, but overall very disappointed. Less
