I'll try to keep this short and sweet for you TL;DR folks. Day One: Embarkation did not go without a hitch. Carnival did not print "Priority" on our boarding papers (my wife and I are presently Platinum), so we were sent to the regular line. After talking to a customer service rep we got that little Snafu fixed. After that boarding was a breeze. Cabins were still not available when we ...

Our friend was in slot tourney. Steak house was amazing, extra $ for going there. Italian restaurant was ok for little money. Casino was always packed, which was expected. Ashtrays in casino are gold, and hard to find.....slow on wait staff.....only 1 learned my name, and I tip for every drink. Clean ship, great room steward! I got my ship on a stick/thingie on a dingie/vessel on a ...

I was on sabbatical for the month of September and after my first cruise in April (4-day Carnival Liberty) I decided to go on a 7-day cruise on a larger ship. My mom and sister joined me and my daughter and 3 of us had a blast; one was a downer. We drove in from Atlanta the night before and unfortunately I stayed up until 6AM playing on my phone so I started our trip off tired (big mistake, ...

Great atmosphere and balance for the whole family! Boarding and disembarking went very smoothly. Carnival Magic was always kept clean at all times. Along with being efficient cleaners, the housekeepers were friendly and welcoming during the entire stay. Great food was provided 24/7. The overall service was organized and very efficient. Each and every member of the crew was very kind and kept a ...

We wanted a family-friendly but not Disney cruise because of our 5 yr old and 10 yr old. This ship waa perfect! From waterworks to sports activities, Club Ocean and pg comic times, we were able to keep them happy with lots of options. Plenty of adult things too- we enjoyed the shows, the music performers, the crazy #funsquad shenanigans with Cousin Cookie and his crew. Dinners in Northern Lights ...

We chose this cruise to spend time with our adults sons. Planned and booked it over a year in advance. My husband and I just sailed on the Pride in April and had a great time... we trusted Carnival... BIG mistake! First port my 24 year received a compound fracture of his finger from his cabin door... it seems that and slip and falls are the biggest medical accident at on board. So for the rest of ...

This was my second cruise on the Magic and I don’t really have any complaints. The ships is beautiful and the staff is attentive and friendly. Our Cabin steward Samsul was excellent and greeted us by name and with a big smile EVERY time he saw us. Cruise Director Cookie was high energy and very entertaining, would go out of my way to book a sailing with him in the future. Ship was sold out but ...

This was our 9th Carnival Cruise, sailing with hubby and two teens. Embark/debark is normally easy, but this was the sailing that made an emergency stop in Cozumel and had to deal with crazy port traffic. Decided on Western Caribbean Ports for a second time. Ship was easy to navigate. Food was decent, you are not going to go hungry. Guys Burgers and Mongolian Wok were favorites. Your Time ...

Overall this was a really good cruise. I will highlight the positives and also speak to a few negatives. Let's start with who we are. We traveled in a group of six that included myself and husband (early 50's) and two son's, ages 17 and 21 and my parents who are in their late 70's. This was our 7th cruise - 6 of which were all Carnival and 2nd time on the Magic. My parents have been on about ...

This was a second cruise for my family on Carnival and we won't be going on one again anytime soon or ever. They cared more about the money than service and quality. The dining room food was sub par while service lacked any effort. On "formal" night you'd expect great food/service. Not here. prime rib was overcooked, barely warm (we were one of the first to be seated) and the lobster tail was ...
