Ship Facts: Carnival Magic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Magic Deck Plans
5 adults 18- 49 who all loved everything
We are a family of 4 adults - our children were 18 and 21 this summer and to celebrate we chose this cruise. We were not disappointed. There was something for everyone.

We flew to Barcelona with Easyjet and were slightly delayed so were some of the last to embark (3.30) We took 30 mins to complete the embarkation procedures and we were enjoying a cool drink as we left port.We had two spa cabins -one for us and our 18 yr old and the other for our 21 yr old and her boyfriend. Both were spacious and comfortable and the balcony was perfect for the sun and watching sunsets. Our room steward was excellent providing outstanding service every day always smiling.

We had late dining in the Southern Lights restaurant and the service and food were excellent. The waiters shows were original and fun.

We loved the Serenity sun deck with its comfy sun beds and gorgeous views. The live shows and casino made the evenings fun and the Red frog was a big hit -one singer being particularly good.

We did not book any Carnival trips as a friend who is an experienced cruiser advised us of the best public transport ( train from Citiavecchia - Rome EURO 5.30) and private taxi (from Naples to Pompeii EURO 90 return for 5 adults including 2 hour wait - booked at tourist info desk in Naples harbour.

Did not get off at Marseille or Palma as have visited before and loved being on the ship in port as there was so much room and we could enjoy the pools.

Although ship was busy on sea days there were still plenty of loungers and the spa and lots of other things to do.

Will definitely choose a Carnival ship again if we can afford it
