I always enjoy going on Carnival Cruise Line. I've been crusing for years, but I was disappointed that we didn't go to Bimini. Captain said bad weather but it was only raining. Guests were very disappointed and they only gave us a $15.96 credit . What an insult! The captain's english language was poor , we couldn't understand him when he made announcements. Nassau is looking pretty ruff, but they ...

First time on the Magic, a beautiful, smaller ship and with the 60% capacity or so, you felt as if you almost had a private cruise. No waiting for elevators, and quick, efficient service in the main dining room. The room was only cleaned once a day, but that was fine. My wife and I love music and love to dance and we had our fill on the Magic. To start they had a fantastic dance band with a ...

Great to be back on a ship. Here are a few tips 1. The BBQ place has limited hours... and great food. Be sure to hit it. 2. On embarkation day the Italian place is open and free 3. There are small rooms with ironing boards and irons for free. My white shirt for formal night was wrinkled and I just asked the cabin steward where the launderette (sp?) place was. 4. On the private ...

Food A. To many people to serve at one time at buffets. B. Disappointed because Guy's famous Bar-B- Que was only opened for one day of the entire 5 days and for 2 and a half hours at that. Never did get to sample his wonderful prepared pork we had heard about. His hamburgers were the best I have ever tasted in my life. Loved his fries also. C. We had anytime dining. We have chose this ...

Family and friends were booked on this cruise. We had dining at 6 pm in Southern Lights. Our servers Dee Dee, Jose and Ikadek were outstanding. If for some reason we were unable to make dinner (which was only a couple of nights) they would always remember and be sure to let us know. They always called us by our first names (we asked them to) always wanted to make sure our food was prepared to ...

TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE Worst Cruise I have ever been on! I am going to start with the end. The billing: I roomed with 2 other guests and our bills were completely wrong. By $120. We noticed this after we were already off the boat and tried multiple times to contact Carnival to correct there mistake, but there response was oh the first person to pay for the cruise is the responsible ...

My husband and I booked this cruise somewhat last minute. We had been booked on the 4/23 sailing on the Magic for a year for the Eastern Carib. but added this as a fun Mom and Dad getaway before the kids joined us on 4/23. We were, overall, happy with the ship. As it was just the two of us (the first time EVER without kids) there wasn't much that was going to bring us down! I have yet to ...

Veteran Cruiser; Honest Review

Veteran Cruiser – Honest Review In summary: the Carnival Magic is a really nice ship. She is huge (130K tons) which is a departure from the older and smaller ships that normally take the 3 or 4 day Bahamas run from Port Canaveral. After five years of service, she was immaculate, comfortable, and the service in general was on target. This cruise was a three-day repositioning cruise of sorts, ...

I chose this cruise to see the Magic and experience it. The ship is Beautiful. Embarkation was very smooth. Disembarkation was a nightmare. It took 2 hours priority for disembarkation. No organization. Cabin was good. Service level by room steward very low. Food in main dining room awful. I must say sea day brunch was good.The steak house was fantastic and so was the service.Entertainment was ...
