Poor standard of quality

We have cruised with Carnival before, on the Liberty, and our experience was very good at the time, so we thought the experience would be repeated, hence we chose Carnival again, but this time on the Magic. Totally regret our decision. From the cabin to the food in the Lido Marketplace was all disappointing. See my cabin review for details on the cabin. As for the food in the Lido marketplace, ...

Good itinerary, great weather. Ship was a little rusty and our cabin wasn’t that nice. Boarding process at Miami was much improved from my last experience. My biggest complaint was with some of the passengers. Lots of drunk and messy people. Carnival tries to combine the booze cruise type with the family friendly type and they don’t mix. A fight broke out in the cabin next to ours at 1:30am. ...

This was my first time at the Carnival cruise, I always go by Royal Caribbean or Norwegian.. I was mad at the first day with the delay and all the mess while we were waiting to board, but as soon as we understand the problem and how Carnival Magic treat us everything change because they were so nice and polite , always ready and willing to help us..and once we were aboard it was so beautiful and ...

Although embarkment was rough, it was an overall great experience. The ship before us caused us to be delayed for several hours (which wasn't normal). We got over that pretty quickly once we had a yummy cocktail in hand. My husband and I ate at the steakhouse the first night which was AMAZING! The food and service was outstanding. There were long lines for the buffet so we ate at the dining room ...

Embarking and disembarking process leave a lot to be desired!

let me start be saying this was a chartered cruise. that being said there are some things that were not carnival's fault but solely the responsibility of the group who sponsored the cruise. this review is only about carnival magic. the cabin was ok, our room steward was friendly and kept our room clean, however he did not do anything to our balcony which was consistently dirty. i had to wipe ...

This was a chartered cruise adventure and i plan to address my issues with that group as well but many problems that i had personally made me want to go home by day 3 of a 7 day adventure. My cabinmates mainly kept our cabin clean prior to service coming in but i was disappointed to see that an obvious makeup spill on my bunk stayed all week which let us know that bedding not changed. Food ...

My family has been on a couple Carnival cruises before this one. I've broken up the main categories into subsections. Go straight to the bottom for a review of the Cheers drink package. [Ship] Although the Magic is one of Carnival's larger ship sizes many of the places people like to congregate for shows or activities are easily accessible and packed close together so you don't have to ...

It was fun until time to get off the boat. That was slow and tedious The dinning room service and food were very good and an enjoyable experience. The room service was always on time. They now charge for items that were includied it n the past. The shows and comedy where very entertaining. The late night snack have become less. The pizza lines were too long but got 5 bucks you can get ...

We left from Miami. They were not following any boarding zones. I heard that customs held up letting people off the ship before us. So the line to board was long but it went fairly quickly. We enjoyed the ship. Water slides and ropes course were fun for kids. Pools were never too crowded but hot tubs were. Food was all pretty good. There were long lines on the lido deck. Guys ...
