Carnival Magic Cruise Review by sunnyshine579
- Sail Date: April 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
The worst part of the trip was the food. What has happened to the food on carnival? The dining room food was just not good at all. All 13 people in our group was disappointed in the food. The buffet was not good either. The dining room is always a fun and exciting part of a cruise and we felt like our servers didn't want to be there and didn't want us to be there either. Such a bummer. I know they work hard but they were not personable at all and it made a difference.
Our room attendant John was great. Always friendly and on top of things. The ship is pretty good. We have no complaints except THE SMOKE. I don't understand why they don't have a better system for the smoking on this ship. It's so overpowering we got sore throats from just being in the areas around the casino. The fun trivia games are beside the casino and we could only sit there so long because the smoke is soooo strong. Nasty.
I don't think we will sail with Carnival again any time soon. The cutbacks are obvious and it's just not worth it after you've looked forward to a vacation for so long.
The activities we did off the ship however were our favorite we've ever done!! In Cozumel we made reservations with Mr. Sanchos. Such a great day! The food was good and the drinks we're never ending! Nice beach area too!
Belize we did the cave tubing thru trip advisor and it was the most amazing excursion ever! Andioni and Yoney were amazing and made the whole experience perfect!! I would recommend the cave tubing in a heart beat!!
Roatan we went with Daniel Johnsons monkey and sloth hangout. SO MUCH FUN!! Our guide Patrick was very patient with us and knew lots about all the animals. He was super adorable too ;)
Debarkation was the worst I've ever experienced too. I guess they called too many people at once because we were all crammed into the stairways and hallways just standing around with our luggage forever. People coming off the elevators were cutting line because they had no where else to go. Such a mess.
We had a good time but I wouldn't recommend this ship. I hate to say that and give negative reviews but it is what it is!

Cave-Tubing AdventureWe found them on trip advisor and are SO glad we did! This was the best excursion we've ever been on in 8 cruises! Andioni and Yoney were amazing guides and made the whole experience perfect! Was definitely worth the money! The meal at the end of the trip was great! Nice clean place to eat and it was all you could eat! We would do this again in a heartbeat!! Those guys were so knowledgeable we loved listening to them tell us about their land! DO IT!!View All 276 Cave-Tubing Adventure Reviews
