Carnival Magic Cruise Review by SuziQ13
- Sail Date: January 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Spa Balcony
Gone are the days when the hot tub was just for adults. Parents crammed kids in for a make do kiddy pool. They were kept so tepid, it wasn't a problem for scalding. Let's also turn up the volume on EVERY venue of music to somehow cover up the lameness of the show. A JUGGLER??????!!!!!!
The employees seemed tired and rushed. (no wonder) Although, pleasant.
We stayed on the spa deck. We had brought 2 small fans with us because we like the noise and air movement. THANK GOODNESS! It stayed hot in our room the entire time, even with a complaint to guest services. I felt it would be more for adults. Didn't seem to make a difference with the noise & constant slamming doors. The spa jacuzzi was WONDERFUL.
You always hear of people gaining weight on cruises. For the Magic, I can only imagine gaining weight from the food is because you are filling up to try to find some TASTE. Bland would be an improvement. I lived on ice cream and baked potatoes.
I hope to cruise in the future, but this trip really left me with a bad taste in my mouth. (literally!) I know I will choose more carefully next time. Or, maybe not a cruise at all since I have observed cruising is more and more becoming a kid camp. I am only 49 years old and have to choose very wisely on how to spend my vacation dollars. Never in a million years when I was a young parent would a cruise been on my list of available vacations!! In closing: Magic was a disappointment. Bigger does not mean better. Read reviews and choose carefully.
