Poor standard of quality

We have cruised with Carnival before, on the Liberty, and our experience was very good at the time, so we thought the experience would be repeated, hence we chose Carnival again, but this time on the Magic. Totally regret our decision. From the cabin to the food in the Lido Marketplace was all disappointing. See my cabin review for details on the cabin. As for the food in the Lido marketplace, ...

This was my first time at the Carnival cruise, I always go by Royal Caribbean or Norwegian.. I was mad at the first day with the delay and all the mess while we were waiting to board, but as soon as we understand the problem and how Carnival Magic treat us everything change because they were so nice and polite , always ready and willing to help us..and once we were aboard it was so beautiful and ...

Although embarkment was rough, it was an overall great experience. The ship before us caused us to be delayed for several hours (which wasn't normal). We got over that pretty quickly once we had a yummy cocktail in hand. My husband and I ate at the steakhouse the first night which was AMAZING! The food and service was outstanding. There were long lines for the buffet so we ate at the dining room ...

My family has been on a couple Carnival cruises before this one. I've broken up the main categories into subsections. Go straight to the bottom for a review of the Cheers drink package. [Ship] Although the Magic is one of Carnival's larger ship sizes many of the places people like to congregate for shows or activities are easily accessible and packed close together so you don't have to ...

Good time on Magic for Spring Break

We left from Miami. They were not following any boarding zones. I heard that customs held up letting people off the ship before us. So the line to board was long but it went fairly quickly. We enjoyed the ship. Water slides and ropes course were fun for kids. Pools were never too crowded but hot tubs were. Food was all pretty good. There were long lines on the lido deck. Guys ...

It was fun until time to get off the boat. That was slow and tedious The dinning room service and food were very good and an enjoyable experience. The room service was always on time. They now charge for items that were includied it n the past. The shows and comedy where very entertaining. The late night snack have become less. The pizza lines were too long but got 5 bucks you can get ...

We cruise regularly and overall liked the Magic. Embarkation in Miami was a little delayed but overall we weren’t bothered by it knowing we were going to have a Guy’s burger as soon as we got on! . We were also pleasantly surprised to see that the pig and anchor BBQ was also on embarkation day as well as days at sea. That’s also awesome. This was my first time cruising gluten free and went to ...

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 ...

My family and I went on our 4th Spring Break cruise on the Carnival Magic. We left from Miami. We left on a Sunday and parking at the cruise terminal took forever as it was at capacity from all the ships that had let on Saturday. Once parked, we basically walked on the ship. We had FTTF and went right to our room to drop off our carry on bags. Our Sign and Sale cards were already there and ...

This was our 3rd cruise, all on Carnival. Our first cruise was on the Breeze in 2015 and we liked the layout of the Breeze, and the Cove balcony room. That was one reason for choosing the Magic. This was our first time in the Western Caribbean. We flew to Miami on Saturday, March 2nd. We rented a car from Budget and had made a prepaid reservation. I cannot recommend Budget. Once we ...
