We chose this for the price and itinerary. Balcony room comfortable. We had the partition removed between our room and friends making for a spacious sitting area we all enjoyed. I had heard complaints about the ship pitching and rolling but everything mild so far. Ship well kept. Food in dining room slower than other cruises but delicious and attractively served. We are a mostly vegetarian group ...

!st Carnival Cruise since pre covid, Platinum status and is no priority boarding. Was directed to Platinum lounge and then not allowed in because a rude lady said it was full. So we boarded with others when our zone was called. We went the same way the other 30 people went to go up the escalator, the same rude lady stopped us after we let 3 wheelchairs go in front of us, she then told us this line ...

Went through VAX screening and guy we had said hubby just made it with his shots. Look again buddy, that was his booster. These are the people who are checking us in??? Got through screening and went to cabin to drop carry on and then to muster station to see how to click the belts on the lifejacket. We were on early and ate a light lunch. Self serve in buffet and NEVER saw ...

We got off the Magic 1 week ago, and we had an amazing time! We were on a 6-day sailing with stops in Nassau, Amber Cove, and Grand Turk. This was my third cruise, 2nd with Carnival. Embarkation was very smooth. We had a check-in time of 12:30-1. We stayed at the Rodeway Inn (decent place with a bar/restaurant) and took the free 10:00 shuttle to the cruise port. We arrived at about 10:30 and ...

We chose this cruise to go to Turks & Caicos we had a great time! All employees were so nice and the food was amazing! Simon London and the fun squad are very good at their jobs as well as housekeeping and dining staff!! We got on in Fort Lauderdale and stayed a few days before getting on the ship at the Lago Mar Resort also a great place to stay. We did most activities on the ship as well ...

We are regular cruisers, and have sailed on Carnival, Norwegian, Celebrity and RCL. We generally like Carnival, as it has the most in terms of activities and is usually a good price point for the quality- this trip however was VERY different. The staff are trying very hard, but there seems to be changes ( decrease) in quality even since our last sailing last December. It is most noticeable in ...

This was my sixth cruise- first one with Carnival, the others were on Royal Caribbean. My boyfriend and I (we are 24, almost 25) arrived in Fort Lauderdale a day before the cruise departed (we had to fly from New Jersey). Hotel in Fort Lauderdale: The Tranqulio Pros: affordable, uber ride away from the airport and cruise port, walking distance to the downtown area and the beach, friendly ...

First of all let me say this was my 16th cruise on Carnival in the last 8 years. All but one of those has been awesome until this one. This was a first cruise for my grown daughter and three nieces. My daughter & I had a deluxe ocean view cabin. While the shower pressure was fine, the water in both basins had very little pressure and the drains were almost clogged shut. Our room steward was ...

Nothing is 100% so 4 stars. Well happy Halloween. Just returned from the Halloween cruise on the Magic. Halloween night was great as usual. First I will give a bit of my disappointments. Not many. 8 day cruise. One afternoon mashed potatoes. That’s it, we only do the buffet so maybe in the dining room. Hate the dining room because of the 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Other things to do than just sit and wait ...

We were celebrating our 50th Anniversary with family and friends. We had 8 cabins booked and we all were satisfied with our cabins. The Magic is done up in good taste and easy to find where you want to go. Buffet was very good, no problems other than an occasional long line but nothing to complain about. Would be nice to have a larger variety of desserts other than the cakes. Also for ...
