I love causing the Carnival. That being said, I can not recommend anyone to sail on the Magic until the ship is refreshed during drydock. The showtime theater cushions on the chairs are worn thin and need to be replaced. The cushions on the clam shells, beds,and loungers need to be replaced as they are worn down and look shabby.Some of the heat chairs in Spa 9 were brown and there are lots of missing tiles on both the heated chairs as well as the thermalicy tub. Carpet and decks throughout the ship are worn down. Please don't panic if you are already booked on the Magic, you will have a good time but if you are thinking of booking, wait until after drydock ( I do not know when it is scheduled) too sail on her. Several days the bathroom towels were replaced were stained. The diamond lunch featured the new menu and it was delicious. The diammond/platinum party was better then most of the cruises I enjoyed post COVID. It was open bar and we again were allowed to request what we wanted to drink. Tip for new attendees, you may order a can of unopened pop (some call it soda) to go as well as a drink.
I chose this cruise because my Auntie was on a back to back cruise and wanted us to go on one of her cruises with her. I selected the second week as I thought the first leg would be too crowded since Jon was hosting a bloggers cruise. I know he changed the name of his hosted cruise but it will forever
Be bloggers cruise to me much like the Sears tower is the sears tower of mater that the name changed.
