Being experienced cruisers, we were easily able to adapt to Magic, also having been on its sister ship Dream in 2010. Magic was one of the best cruise ships we have been on and our selection of a Spa Balcony was quite a treat.
All the stops were well planned and came off without a hitch. The Southern dining room was excellent and the crew headed by M'D Ken Byrne was just outstanding. If you have never experienced the musical treat in their dining room, they you are in for a real nice event. Ken is a very fine singer.
We cannot complain about anything, and the hiccups that were well reported on Dream were not there on Magic. For the first time we took good advantage of the Spa and found it very pleasant and the staff quite nice, although the services were a little on the costly side.
The ship was not sold out, with about 3800 guests, so there was no overcrowding. Flying to Barcelona was not difficult but the airfare these days is costly as Continental Airlines charged us each $320 for a fuel surcharge.
