I was on the Carnival Magic for four nights sailing to Cozumel, Mexico. The first night the the ship was moving very fast. My family and I were all seasick and were falling over in the stairways, bathrooms, ect. We decided to stay in our staterooms and order room serive that evening because it was just awful. The next morning we were still sick, but were able to walk round the ship and go eat. It got better, but we just didn't feel right. None of us.
The entertainment was great! I've read alot on here about the staff was great, however, not in my opinion. I had to ask out waiters several of times for refills on our drinks. They were so busy, they'd forget. We were mislead about several things, which was disapointing. . Food was ok. Long buffet lines. Be ready to stand in each line for an hour. The water is pools are kind of chilly, so my kids were not able to swim. They were really bummed.Also I was told at the time of booking that life jackets were available for children. THAT WAS NOT THE CASE!!! So my kids lost out on the whole reason why we went on this ship. We made the best of it though, but defintaly expected better service. The best service we got was from the person cleaning our rooms. Very nice! He always had a smile on his face and was always asking if we needed anything. Hope you all enjoy your cruise!! P.S. Cozumel is beautiful! We had a great time there!Read Less

Definitely get what you pay for. The cruise ship is outdated and randomly smells like sewer. I stayed in an interior room on the Empress deck and it was just grungy (Hair on our bedding, urine still in the toilet). We booked this cruise last minute because the price was so low and after the trip, I see why. The food was good, but the service in the main dining room was not up to par with the larger ships I have cruised on. It wasn't just terrible service, but not what one is used to while cruising. The lido was fine and the serenity deck was nice. The staff were friendly and while they didn't have a lot of activities to attend, the activities that they did have were entertaining. If you aren't looking to get much out of a cruise (would be happy just eating the buffet and playing in the casino) this would be good for you. Would not recommend this 4 day Caribbean cruise to any new cruisers, y'all might get the wrong idea of cruising!!Read Less

We had a great time.. Truly enjoyed this cruise.. We are Platinum and this was our 2nd time on the Paradise. We were traveling with our Brother & Sister in law for their 1st cruise. We had a blast and I think we got them hooked on cruising too... The weather was a little cloudy but that did not stop our fun.. in either port.. We had great food and great service .. The ship was nice & clean. We did Your time Dining and asked for the same Wait Staff every night. We let Carnival Pick our cabin and it was a great Location on the Aft.. We enjoyed the adult comedy shows as well as a little bit of all the other entertainment.. trivia, love & marriage show, 8 More seconds, karaoke, and just sitting and people watching on the serenity or lido decks..Read Less

This was the second cruise that my husband and I have taken... This time we took a great friend along and it was a great experience!!! Food was amazing....Our waiter name was Irving I think ( table 308 in the inspiration dining room) I can't say enough about him .... My friend is gluten free and he made her food bread, chocolate molting cake and went above and beyond to make her dinners so wonderful!!! She also won $200.00 on bingo... We loved the comedy shows as well as activities.... Our cabin keeper was great... Beds were always made and towel animals were great ...we loved all the shops on and off the boat!!!Any one that doesn't like the cruises must be hard to please because they go above and beyond to please!!! Elena from Romania was a great bartender in the gatspy bar!!!!I recommend anyone thinking about going to go !!!! You will love it as much as we did!!!!Read Less
