After reading several reviews of the Magic we weren't expecting a lot from our cruise. That turned out to not be the case. We found the staff on the Magic to be great. Food was okay, actually real good at times. Entertainment okay. Our dining wait staff was wonderful. We've always found that the more fun you have with the staff the more fun you'll have in general. Lines for food weren't bad, after all you're sailing with 4,000 of you're best friends. Guys burgers and BBQ were great. Did the Italian restaurant and found it okay. Nothing over the top special. Heard the steakhouse was great. Disappointed in how some people dressed in the dining room. Almost seemed like they were pushing it to see if they wouldn't be seated because of what they were wearing. I'm sure it's tough for the cruise line to push this issue. This was our fourth cruise with Carnival and have done six with Disney.

Better than expected

Cabin Review

Cabin 8202
Cabin was nice. Kris took very good care of us. Had an issue with the outside door and it was taken care of right away. Not sure I care for the 70's orange look.
