  • Sail Date: Aug 2016
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Interior

I want to start out by saying we had a great time with a party of 14 on the Carnival Magic for my fathers 75th Birthday. We traveled with all ages from 3 - 75, the programs for our youngest family member where awesome and we never worried about his secuirty or safety! The 13 year old participated in Circle C which was more of a meeting place than anything else. She loved it and meet lots of awesome people from all over the country. Mom and Dad didn't like the freedom to run all over the ship and had to stay in constant contact with her.

Our Ship stopped in the Dominican, St. Thomas, San Juan and Turks/Caicos. Turks was i favorite Port and we are planning on going there in the near future to spend a few days we fell absolutely in love with it.

Each stopped we opted to do a planned Shore excursion that Carnival arragend for us all of the excursions were well worth every penny. Snuba in St. Thomas was amazing and Reef and Rays was a blast in Turks!

The only complaint I really have was with our dinner service. We had early dining every night with a party of 14 and the service was not that great and the food was just ehhh?? Nothing to write home about.

We will definetly be cruising again and for sure with Carnival! Can't wait.

Cabin was small but served it's purpose as we spent very little time in the cabin! Bed was super comfortable and pillows were awesome!
