Carnival Magic Cruise Review by Ivansmom02
- Sail Date: January 2012
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Balcony
The cruise was awesome. We always had things to do, lots of activities to choose from, and we were never board. My son had a blast at Camp Carnival. He's 9 years old. The water in the pools and waterworks was a little cold, but that was to be expected. The ropes course was something we wanted to try but it was closed the majority of the time b/c of high winds.
All of the crew members we encountered were extremely nice. I never had a problem with anyone having an attitude or acting like they just didn't want to help. The only person I thought had a smug attitude was someone at the Guest Services desk, but other than that, everyone was GREAT! We had James as our Cruise Director, John was out of town, and he was amazing!!! I hope we have him next time as well.
The food was pretty good. Our wait staff was Pedro, D and J and we LOVE THEM!!!! Did an awesome job!
The shows and music were outstanding! We were not ready to get off this ship when it was time. We are going back next March and cannot wait!!!!
ALL IN ALL, AMAZING VACATION!!!!!! The Magic is the BEST!

Dolphin Swim & EncounterDolphin Push, Pull and Swim at Chankanaab park. Had an amazing time. Finding our excursion guide, getting us there, and getting back to port was very simple and were very nice guides. The shopping in Cozumel is lots of fun b/c it's so cheap and there's so many shops to look at! Ate at 3 Amigos, had a blast there!!!!View All 348 Dolphin Swim & Encounter Reviews

Montego BayWe did the hop on/hop off shuttle pass and it was very easy to find, very easy to use and had no trouble at all. The driver was hilarious and had us laughing the entire trip. Doc Cave's beach is beautiful, but a little crowded. Margaritaville was soooooooo fun!! You have to do the slide that goes down into the ocean!! Very fast paced island, but they're a very happy people.View All 442 Montego Bay Cruise Port Reviews
