First off let me start by saying the ship was beautiful. At first I was going to say I wasn't happy with the Lido deck food but after realizing that it would be a total waste to have all the buffet's going when everyone was off doing excursions I reconsidered. The food on the Lido for lunch time was always good with a decent selection. The only complaint was coming back from Rome... almost ...

A bit of background, we have cruised with Princess, Celebrity, NCL, Cunard and RCL. Our children are 15 and 13. We didn't choose the cruise for the itinerary as we have visited all the ports except Sciliy before. We were keen to try Carnival as we had heard good things and the boat looked to have lots of child friendly features. We spent 4 days in Barcelona before the cruise which we enjoyed, ...

My first impression of the ship was really positive although the dEcor is still "over the top" Carnival, but it did not distract from our enjoyment of the cruise. On the first day there were crew members all over the ship who wore "Ask Me" t-shirts and who were busy helping cruisers find their way around the ship. I thought that was a great addition to the cruise experience as this was our ...

This was our first time in Europe, so we didn't know what to expect. Embarking was pretty fast and easy. The terminal in Barcelona is nice and modern. The ship I personally found was very nice and modern. I know a lot of people say it's tacky and cheap but I didn't feel this way about it. It was very clean and the public spaces were nice and open. The buffet was always very good, and the dining ...

Carnival Magic cruise in Western Mediterranean was a wonderful trip and great way to explore Europe. The cruise was great way to have housing at night and all the food you can muster during the day. I don't want to rehash all that was mentioned before - so here are my summaries: Staterooms - we had balcony room on 6 - the rooms were large and comfortable. Staff kept everything well kempt ...

We travelled as two parties - one couple with kids (12yo and 10yo) from Queensland and the grandparents from Canberra. Both parties booked through Worldwide Cruise Centre, an Australian company, which went MIA once the money was paid. Had to remind them to send the tickets (they went missing in their office); no flexibility regarding the pre-cruise hotel in Barcelona, even though we were willing ...

Excellent cruise. Monaco port was closed on first day of cruise itinerary due to bad storms, so Captain reversed itinerary and we had a Day at Sea then started at Messina and finally the last port was Monaco! It was nice that the cruise still saw all the ports. Service was stellar. Been on 6 cruises in the last 10 years, majority with Carnival. All employees were exceptional and met any needs. ...

Age 40s

This was my first cruise, in what will hopefully be one of many. I traveled with a family group of 8. To start off, the embarkation onto the boat was flawless. Even though it has been noted that you could not board until 11:30, we had made the mistake of booking a cab too early (or so we thought) and arrived at the port an hour early. I was chagrined to see lines upon lines of people ...

Upon flying into Barcelona, we were met by Carnival representatives and efficiently transferred to the ship. The boarding process was extremely well done. So far, so good. Our balcony cabin was a decent size. Very comparable to our last cabin on Holland America except there was a shower and no tub. The balcony was a little smaller but perfectly adequate. The bed was very comfortable. Our ...
