One Happy Cruiser

Review for Carnival Magic to Europe - Western Mediterranean

After reading several negative reviews about the Magic, I must say I am stunned and amazed at what people will complain about. I suppose you just can't make everyone happy, no matter how hard you try. We sailed on the Carnival Magic in May through the Western Mediterranean. I thought Carnival did a great job with this, their newest ship. I, for one, am very happy with the direction Carnival is ...

BACKGROUND-We are a married couple (42m/38f) from Nashville, Tn. This was our 7th cruise but our first cruise overseas. We are generally an active beach going couple that enjoy sitting on the beaches and taking it easy so we knew this was going to be a little different trip for us. FLIGHTS/HOTEL- We flew from Nashville to Venice via JKF and Madrid 2 days prior to sailing. Flights were ...

This ship was nice and obviously brand new when we got on. Boarding was a breeze. Everything smelled like it was installed yesterday, which for most things, they were. We had an Inside Spa room which was a fine size. Unlimited access to Spa amenities was nice. Issue was they weren't ready for us and there were no bed skirts, but that was fixed when I asked for some and they got them for us. ...

My wife and I simply love to cruise together. It is amazing how well we travel together when we cruise - and, for us, it is the absolute best way for us both to leave our work behind and escape into each other's company, making romantic memories that will last for the rest of our lives, having plenty of time alone as well as an abundance of time together. She has cruised several cruise lines ...

We were on the inaugural cruise of the Carnival Magic. Having previously taken only a Disney Mediterranean cruise in the past, we were apprehensive about switching to Carnival. We had heard varying things about the lower quality service, entertainment, staterooms, etc. Here is what we thought of the new ship.Service- Our stateroom host was great. The room was cleaned twice daily, promptly and ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The Carnival Magic's sister ship, the DREAM, had been our latest favorite in the Carnival fleet. We think the changes/enhancements made to the MAGIC have now made this new ship our favorite. We had the pleasure of watching this brand new ship arrive in Venice. We had heard that it would arrive the morning before our departure, so several of us hoofed it to St. Mark's Square and watched her come ...

The Carnival Magic is another great Carnival ship. We cannot comment on Venice as we had no time in this city due to flight cancellations and changes. We barely made it to the ship on time. Took a cab directly from the airport to the ship for 4 people with 4 large and 4 carry on luggage was 60 euros, tip inclusive. Great deal I thought. We had pre-purchased Water Taxi and Vaporetto passes, but ...

We always wanted to visit Italy and when we found out we could also be on a ship's Inaugural Cruise we thought that was an opportunity not to be passed up. We really didn't know what we were in for being on the first cruise of a ship, but to be honest, with very few exceptions, and some special events, you wouldn't have even noticed it was the first time out for the ship and crew. Embarkation ...
