Magic was my second cruise and is an easy ship to find your way around. I wish they would use better signage for all the washrooms on board. It was difficult to find washrooms on any floor even after your told where they are.( It’s not a big deal, but many others had the same problem.) We had a balcony cabin and our stateroom service was great. Su made sure everyone was comfortable and we had everything needed. If not, you only need to ask and there there to help you Diningroom service was awesome. Loved these guys. I don’t know how the servers remember everyone’s name but they do. They were very friendly, efficient and never made you feel rushed. We were always told to relax and take our time. They saw me at the lido deck having tea in the morning and seen that I liked honey instead of sugar. It was at my table that night for dining, along with a pot of tea. It was so considerate of them. The dancing they do was fun to watch every night, and brought a tear to your eye on the last night. Entertainment was amazing. MarQ, the cruise director, is hilarious. You will LYAO. Theatre shows are really good and worth seeing every night. They get the audience involved in game shows like The Newlywed Game. Again hilarious. They might ask you what one of your spouses friends you could see yourself with. Haha, Very talented group of entertainers. Songs from the 50’s, 60’s 70’s,80’s,90’s to sing along with . They leave no generation out. Singing and dancing they do is fabulous, a must see. Easy on / off the ship for excursions and embarkation/ disembarkation went very smoothly. Highly recommended, but don’t go if you don’t want to have some fun and share some laughs. If you do, then this ship is for you. Read Less

We chose this cruise for the best bang for the buck and other positive reviews for this ship and the cruise director. This was our second cruise and first with Carnival. Overall we are very happy with Carnival and had no real issues. We thought there was more food options included and available with Carnival vs royal carribean. My wife also won us a shore excursion and some jewelry. We also thought all the crew and staff were way more upbeat than Royal Caribbean staff. We would go on this ship again. Pros: Guys burger joint and Pig and Anchor barbecue. The omelets in the buffet area. The breakfast in the formal dining room. MarQ the cruise director was great as a cruise director! A number of hottubs were available. The violinists and a few singers were excellent. We had no problems with embarkation or deembarkment. Cons: The all day pizzeria: pizzas were good but it seemed like they could never keep up with the demand (only one spot) and there was always a line. Some of the desserts were a bit bland or tasted off like the peanut butter cream cake that tasted more coconut. While we never had problems finding room in a hot tub at times they were a bit lukewarm. So I have absolutely nothing wrong with peoples lifestyle choices and this evidently was a LGBT friendly cruise but we had a couple incidents specifically with the LGTB crowd. One female couple was making out in the hottub we were in even with other people in it. On another night while listening to the violinists in the main atrium, Another female couple blatantly and obnoxiously started making out in the middle of the floor for several minutes even with many poeple around. Numerous people were uncomfortable and left the entertainment. My point is this behavior is not courteous and acceptable regardless of the type or age of the “couple”, it’s not like it was in some corner or in their room. Ports: Grand Cayman- we won a shore and land excursion. Semi submersible boat to a tour bus around the island, to the sea turtle aquarium then Hell. Probably would not have booked this trip ourselves. We then had a little bit of time to go snorkeling at Eden Rock just about a 10 minute walk from the tender access. Water was nice Roatan- our favorite port. We did the Dolphin swim and snorkel at Anthony Keys. Absolutely worth the money (Though it was about $30 more through the cruise line and there were no openings through the resort...funny) this was everything the other reviews had said and wished we could stay longer. We were also suprised that as we drove the stark difference in housing from very poor to very expensive in a short distance and not much in between. Belize city- least favorite port. Did rendezvous case spectacular snorkel and lunch. Overall good other than swimming with a big group of people was a bit frustrating and the lunch part was pretty weak. We then went back to ship and to the port to shop. Not impressed at all with that area and would advise people to just stay on the ship unless an excursion. Cozumel- did the all inclusive Paradise beach getaway not through the cruise line. A bit more people eventually on the property than at Nachi Cocom 8 years ago. The food was excellent as well as the drinks. Also saw lobster, ray, and eel which I didn’t see snorkeling elsewhere. Read Less

Overall loved the ship. Embarkation smooth. Cabin lovely. Extended cabin aft. on the curve so a little larger. Underneath lido so had a roof when it rained. A little noise from folks dragging chairs but not a deal breaker. Steak House was fabulous as always. Italian restaurant nice ambiance way too much food for me. We could have split an entree and been full. didn't use the dining room at all as the menu was not appealing to us at all and we are not picky eaters. No vairety. Staff was great. olivia from fun squad an absolute hoot. We had so much fun with her and Adriann. would sail on Magic again. Not overly fond of the Miami port but not a deal breaker. All the staff was friendly from buffet to bartenders to cleaning staff. The girls at coffee bar were the hardest workers I have seen. The first show (Western) left me flat but the second Rock one was terrific. Read Less
