Started Excited - Ended Disappointed
The food was mediocre at best. Lido Buffet was a step up from school lunch but a couple of steps below Old Country Buffet. We tried the Northern Lights dining room on 3 separate nights but gave up because it was taking over 2 1/2 hours to get a 3 course dinner and the food wasn't much better than the buffet. I get More annoyed when it takes almost an hour between clearing our plates and getting dessert. Actually, I believe the buffet was fresher and hotter. The lobster and "jumbo tiger shrimp" was laughable. The smallest lobster tail I've ever seen, 3 bites max, and the "jumbo" shrimp were about the size of my little finger. Not to mention that neither had any flavor at all.
So, if you want a cruise where you can sit back, read a book and not gain any weight then the Magic may be for you. Just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. Less
Cabin review: 4F7411 Interior
Quiet area, plenty of room for luggage under bed, 2 hanging closets, big shelved closet, large bathroom for interior cabin and only 3 cabins away from elevators that take you directly to the Lido Buffet and aft deli, tandori food and swimming pool. I would book this cabin again without hesitation.Read All Interior (4F) Reviews >>
