  3. Carnival Magic
The ship was 5 star with a 3 star entertainment and dining experience. Breakfast was predictable nothing exciting, and lunch was not much better. The food in the dining room was often cold, we did complain a few times, it wasn't the fault of the waiters, they did their best.

The entertainment was poor out of the 12 days on board only 3 shows stood out, and there was not a show every night.

The cabin was very nice, we had a balcony it was clean.Our steward was helpful, so was the guest reception.

There is a standard charge for gratuities per person per day which we were aware of for the crew, but were asked time and again towards the end of the cruise not to forget the maitre'd and to tip more if we felt waiters, room stewards deserved it.

How cheap can you get!!

Disembarkation was efficient we had to be off the ship by 8.30 am

Would I cruise with Carnival again? No I don't think so I've cruised with better!!

Cabin Review

Balcony
Cabin 8B
The cabin we stayed in was a balcony very comfortable but the hangers in the wardrobes were very difficult to use and inconvenient. The bathroom was fine but there was no hair conditioner.
They would vacum at 5/6 in the morning waking us up and in the afternoon when we were relaxing.
