Like most of us, we’ve waited through numerous cancelled cruises over the past 18 months. So it was great to just be onboard and sailing again. Ship and protocols - the Carnival Magic was in excellent condition and all crew members were very attentive to sanitation and COVID protocols. There was a crew member at the entrance to every location where masks were required - with a smile and a ...

Embarkation was very smooth and fast. We Ubered over from the airport. I found this faster and also cheaper overall. I would recommend this to anyone. We had a suite which afforded us some extra benefits. I have to say that once on the ship it was not set up for everyone to sit around waiting for their cabin. I would recommend that the dining rooms be opened up for the embarkation if for ...

We sailed on the six-night itinerary to Amber Cove, Grand Turk, and Nassau on December 15 as an early Christmas present to ourselves (side note: at $680 for a suite, it was a steal). The Magic is a lovely ship—this was our second time cruising on this ship, and I wouldn't hesitate to book a third. I've noticed that other reviews include a lot people complaining that it's run down, but I didn't ...

I've been on the Carnival Magic three times since Nov 2018 and have enjoyed each sailing. There are several main reasons, first being the staff is so friendly. Especially my bar service who help me drink my losses away in the casino - Kat and . Also, ask for I Kadek or Joseph in the main dining room for open-seating, they will take good care of you. Can't forget about Lito our room steward who ...

Departed out of Ft. Lauderdale which I LOVE. So much easier than Miami. We live in the area so we just drove down that morning. This was our 9th Carnival cruise (gold). With two kids (13 and 6) we go for the ocean suite and it makes priority embarkation/debarkation worth it. We bypassed all the long lines and we were on the ship in about 15 minutes. Our room was already ready by 12:30. The ...

We chose this cruise for its value, ship size and itinerary. Now, if you read a lot of the reviews, you are expecting to board the Pinta or Santa Maria or a slave Ship. I was kinda expecting grumpy crew members and long lines. We in face found the opposite. Embarkation was smooth as silk. Great people working. The ship is lovely. There was nothing that didn’t work. The buffet was great. We ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted a ship with the newer waterworks for the kids and the itinerary looked good. Overall everything was great. Embarkation- They have this down pat. We were sitting still in a line for about 10 minuets just before we were able to get on the boat, but it really was a breeze. Just make sure you have all your documentation ready to go. We stayed in 7358- an ...

The room stewards were great, our room was immaculate and always ready. The bars were fun, especially our favorite, The Alchemy, the bands were good , the comedians fun. The spa was one of the best I have been to on a cruise, but The food was just so ordinary, even in the specialty Italian place. The dining room was awful. The food was cold, poorly cooked, never as ordered and the staff for ...

For the most part my boyfriend and I enjoyed ourselves The only true bone I have to pick is with the food. I suffer from celiac disease. While there are gluten free options they are limited and not very good. Guys Burger place has to make the buns special and cook fries separate. While waiting 20 minutes isn't the best I assumed it be worth the wait though. Fries were good but the bun was some ...

This was our first cruise, but we traveled with another couple that were seasoned cruise travelers so we didn't have to learn everything on the fly. This may be a bit long, but hopefully will help other cruise newbies. Embarkation Day- this was much smoother than I anticipated, but we had a priority boarding so we were able to board pretty quickly and easily. I should note that every Carnival ...
