  3. Carnival Magic
Premier cruise w/ fun perks & great casino . They had lots of the newer games. Our casino hosts kept us entertained with daily games & prizes as well as special gifts in our room, from from cookies, wine, Fanny pack etc, Also selected based on the specific port stops. It was my 1st time on the Magic. It is older looking & could use a refurb. The service was great from our aft end bartenders (Richard was awesome kept drinks flowing!) as well as our dining room servers Joseph, Jitendra & Bipen who were exceptional. Every meal we had in the dining room was excellent from prime rib to beef Wellington. Their “rare finds” were good too. Seemed to be a lot of kids on this trip & they overtook the hot tubs as usual. It would be nice to have an adults only pool without having to book the Havens. But Carnival is known as the fun ship & they delivered on that. The rock n roll show was good, comedians just okay.

A great way to get away from cold weather
