A nine day "journey" cruise was interesting; Check-in: This was pleasant and easy. The agents were pleasant and welcoming at the port. Onboard: The staff from housekeeping, Food and beverage to entertainment wa excellent, with some notes The Punchliner Comedy club: Needs Improvement. With a diverse guest, there was NOT a single comedian of colour!! I would give a 2 ot five.. Room ...

Horrible boarding in New York

We had an 8 person family group going to Bermuda for the first time. The boarding in Manhattan was a total disaster. We arrived 5 minutes before our scheduled block of time to get on the ship and were directed to a never ending line outside the building. We waited for over 2 hours on the dock walking on piles of pigeon droppings with no explanation from anyone what was going on. Finally one of ...

The Cabin Stewart's and Dinning/Ledo Deck Buffet Workers Beyond Great workers. The Cabin was very small but served the purpose and the Cabin Stewart's worker were Great. The Dining staff was also Great too. As for the Dining Room BBQ Ribs and the Short Ribs were fantastic, they melted like butter in your mouth and perfectly cooked. The Cruise Director was very disappointing. Was ...

Pleasantly surprised, but ended up with Covid.

We took this cruise because of the Casino promotion made it a deal difficult to pass. We had no high expectations. We usually cruise with Royal Caribbean, and the only other Carnival cruise (the one that gave us the casino promotion) was horrible. But actually it was an awesome cruise! Entertainment was fantastic - much better than on RC Adventure of the seas or NCL Escape. And the Magic is ...

It was the Walmart Cruise

I told my wife it was as if Carnival pulled the ship up to Walmart, lowered the gangway and shouted " Ok, get on." This is my ninth cruise, the second with my wife and the first with my twin, 12 yr old girls. We left out of NYC. I have never seen a more crowded ship in my entire life. I have no idea how Carnival can expect to accommodate 3200 guests in just two very small pools, pools no ...

Sailed on what was two prior Covid cancellations. I have platinum status with Carnival and NCL. Compensation for the cancelled Carnival cruises was very good onboard credits with optional free beverage packages. Embarkation was a nightmare even with people coming at their appointment time. Lines went from outdoors to inside, back outside, before you were anywhere near Screening. Carnival ...

My husband and I cruised on Magic from NYC on 7/18/2022. We were happy that everything about this cruise was great! Embarkation was easy and on time, food in all the venues was good, crew absolutely outstanding! Ryan Rose is one of the best CDs we have sailed with - how he keeps that energy level up is a complete mystery. Staff kept the ship spotless - always cleaning, wiping windows, etc. We ...

We booked this cruise last minute, due to airline cancellations I did not want to risk leaving out of Florida and having our flight cancelled. Our time that we selected for the medical review was not honored, so we had to wait in line to get processed while at the pier. It was not that bad waiting. We got an inside aft cabin due to last minute booking, we brought a nightlight so it was not that ...

Carnival Magic Mundane of the Seas

We initially chose this cruise based on the number of sea days (four) and ports we hadn't cruised to before (Amber Cove, Grand Turk & Half Moon Cay). We were warned about cruising on Carnival out of New York due to the crowds, etc., and failed to heed the warning. Our worst cruise so far and we most likely won't sail Carnival again, especially out of New York for a number of reasons. ...

Some Good, Some Bad, A Lot of Ugly

We chose this cruise as a way to honeymoon without flying as we live close to the port. The price at the time was around $600 per person in an aft-view cabin, which was a good deal for us. However, knowing what we know now, we would have probably paid extra to some other cruise. Good: entertainment, most of the service, main and specialty dining food quality, drink quality, Grand Turk, and ...
