Ship Facts: Carnival Magic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Magic Deck Plans
Prison with a balcony water view
This was my third Carnival cruise since 2006.Went on the Magic 3/3/13.Dined in dining room Monday night and was violently ill by midnight. My wife also. We ate the same thing and both had vomiting and diarrhea for 24 hrs and felt bad the rest of the week. I think was got food poisoning but the cruise lines want to call it Norovirus. It ruined our whole trip. They confined us to our cabin for24 hrs which I can understand but the food they provided us for that 24 hrs was insufficient for even one person.

Ship was clean, decor subdued for Carnival. Room stewards were great. Cabin smaller than on conquest. Food on buffet lines was at best lukewarm and generally only fair. Sandwiches at deli grilled just enough to brown bread slightly, not enough to heat meat or cheese. Food was great disappointment. Not up to par with past carnival cruises.

Ports of call Jamaica, Grand Caymen, and Cozumel are great ports although we could not enjoy them because of feeling ill this trip. This will be our last cruise with carnival and I would not go again for free. The food and service over the last 6-7 yrs has declined noticeably. Looking for another cruise line
