Noticed cut-backs on second Carnival cruise

Sail Date: May 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston
First of all, yes, we did have a good time. The room stewards were the best yet. The cut backs were in the Lido Marketplace Buffet and service. The food was essentially the same everyday, with 3 or 4 changes in the selections. And that was it...3 or 4 differences with all other selections the same. The food wasn't all that good was much better on the Conquest. We don't go on a cruise to eat alot, but, geez. The main dining room offered much better food, so if you haven't cruised on the Magic, eat in the dining room and not the buffet. The lines are long as well. When sitting around the pool, there weren't any servers taking drink or food orders. Well, except for drinks of the day.

And the nickel and diming regarding soft drinks. We didn't order any soft drinks because of that ridiculous policy. Knew of it before and was amazed that they charge extra for soft drinks and water.

The 3 pools: forward, mid-ship and aft were nice and all the hot tubs, if you More could find space to chill out in one.

The Magic is a nice ship, but if we cruise in the future, it will not be a Carnival Cruise. Oh yes, we stayed in an aft cabin which had the largest balcony and more room than the cabins from the previous cruises. The balcony had 3 chairs and 1 table. Less
