We had a bad odor in our room. Carnival did nothing to correct the issue. 2 family members got sick. Customer service was uncaring and nonexistent. Terrible. Many other passengers were complaining about the ship. It is older and has rust in most places. The food was terrible. We got the kids hamburgers and the buns on both were hard and stale. The kids asked to get something else. Not a lot in the was of selection either. The room service was terrible. we did not have an cabin steward for 2 days. The guy who was supposed to be filling in never brought us any towels etc. The entertainment was cancelled due to the stage and lighting not working. They were supposed to have a magic show but it did not work. So they substituted singers to throw together a signing show that was awful. If you want to waist your money go ahead but this is not a ship carnival should have on the seas.. Terrible. Read Less

We had a really great time on our recent cruise. I'm sure I'll miss a lot of things, but in my review I hope to highlight the main highlights and the few lowlights. The highlights: 1. Our room. We were in 12011, a spa-level balcony room. The room was nice and clean (many thanks to our most excellent room steward Kristian). We enjoyed being surrounded by the quiet spa activities. Absolutely no unwelcome noises. It was also really nice to be able to use the sauna, hot tub, gym, and large showers right around the corner. The latter help to make the evening dinner prep most efficient with easy access to another shower. 2. Cruise director. Jonathan "Cookie" Adams was an amazing host. Funny, warm, well-spoken, and, in the couple of instances where we interacted with him in a more private setting, he came across as a top-notch human being. He is the total package. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in Hollywood some day soon. If you're choosing between two cruises and one of them has Cookie as the CD, go with Cookie! The other member of the Fun Squad (i.e., entertainment staff) were really good too. 3. Southern Lights Dining room. We really enjoyed our regular 8:15PM dinner. Our waiters I Made, Jenkins, and I Putu were amazing... Hard-working, courteous and prompt. The maître d, "007" (the guy legit called himself "007"), couldn't have done a better job. 4. Tacos and Burgers. The tacos and burgers on the Lido deck in the afternoon were really good. I wish they alter the hours of the tacos a little so that we would have had more chances to get them on days when we were at port. 5. Alchemy Bar & Cheers Package. The rate for the Cheers package was $52 per person per day. It included up to 15 alcoholic beverages and unlimited non-alcoholic beverages (sodas, coffee, water, etc). The Alchemy Bar served up amazing cocktails @ $11 each. So if you think you can take down 5 per day, then the Cheers package is a good idea. Shout out to the Alchemy Bar staff (Nathan, Raunak, Natalya & Ivan) - awesome job and hope to see you guys again. 6. Overall cleanliness and appeal of the ship. Imagine 4,000+ people having a week-long party at your house. Man, if that happened at my house, then I'd just take a bulldozer to it because it would be ruined forever. Well, Magic... Not like that at all. The crew work like ninjas all the time to keep it nice and clean so that the party can go on without a hitch. 7. Room service. Being able to request fresh coffee and a little food to be delivered (at no additional cost) every morning was clutch. The lowlights: 1. Cucina del Capitano. We paid extra to eat at the Italian restaurant on our last night. Mistake. The entire restaurant had an awful vibration, presumably due to its location on the ship, and the food was not as good as the Southern Lights dining room. 2. Waterfalls of Damajagua in the Dominican Republic. We think they waaaaay overbooked that excursion because we spent about a quarter or our time in line at the top of the hill waiting in line to get into the water. This excursion would have been great if we got what we paid for. 3. Dearth of pools and hot tubs. We felt like there should be another pool on the ship. All of the pools were always full of kids. It would have been nice to have another one for adults in the serenity area. Friends of ours had a room on the sixth floor (#6338) and didn't like that the hot tub on the fifth floor right under their balcony was usually full of noisy people. Read Less

We went to our local port only 40 minutes away, Port Canaveral, to take our first cruise, 7 days without the children at the end of May 2018 on Carnival Magic. Once on the ship, embarkation went smoothly and we were soon in our room on the 6th floor near front of ship. The first day was very busy with lots of things to do and the food was very delicious! Our stateroom had a minor balcony door noise the first night but our steward, Arthur, was told and he had it fixed before we got done with breakfast that day. Our room was very quiet after that, no noise from the activities above and below us. It is hard to believe you can stay so BUSY and have such a RELAXING time. The events to go to can keep you so busy you may wonder when you will fit in the meals. Dining was a blast when the wait staff had "showtime". All the waiters and waitresses danced if they could. Entertainment with Cookie was always something to look forward to and not to be missed. Cookie was the Cruise Director and he made everyone laugh. I can't remember when I laughed sooooo hard as I did while watching him. His humor was clean and not offensive which made it a blessing to top it all off. Definitely thinking of going back on Carnival again in the near future. Read Less
