  3. Carnival Magic
As a group of 12 family and friends who have been talking about cruising together for years, we finally got to do it last week on the Carnival Magic. All I can say that as a veteran of 23 cruises on all lines, except Disney, this had to be the best of the best!! Simon London is the cruise director..fun, visible, friendly, crazy without being over the top, inclusive, talented..warm...he made the trip in my opinion. There were so many activities..all kinds of trivia that you never find on a ship, great music all over, contests, deck dancing , lessons, art shows and so much more. Every day there was a top movie showing under the stars. You could also access them on your stateroom tv. We chose the anytime dining so we ate each night in the Northern Lights dining room where we had no trouble getting accomodated. The Carnival app is a must to do all of your planning and to save time. Agus was our cabin steward for room 9394..one deck below the buffet which was so convenient. The guests on this cruise were so much fun but very well behaved..they were participants. We all agreed that the Motown night in the lobby was the most fun, singing dancing, men vs. women competitions....Simon dressed as Tina Turner. On 80's night he came out as Richard Simmons... Food was terrific..no complaints And finally, the singers and dancers and shows on this cruise were the best I have ever seen Looking to book again for next year. Give the Magic a try..you won't be disappointed.

I did not want to get off this ship.....so great!!!
