AMAZING

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date:

Our  3 Night  Bahamas Cruise was absolutely AMAZING aboard Carnival's Magic!  We were welcomed with opened arms from the minute we boarded the ship until the moment we debarked the ship.  We learned we could not see the entire ship in the amount of time we had.  

    We wish however, with tge photographs your photos would be linked to your sign & sail card & not printed on paper to be thrown away for the photos, you are not going to purchase. That is wasting a lot of paper waste.

    Overall, we had an awesome, relaxing time!

Romantic Getaway

The Magic was a lovely ship. The staff was great and the food. I only experienced one problem. I tried to change my dinner seating time and it became a major problem.

Great Time!

I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. The ship was beautiful because it was one of the newer ships. I LOVED the food. The comedy shows and the club were nice too. Overall, I had an amazing time. I look forward to booking my next vacation with Carnival.

This is my 3rd cruise One of the Best if not the best! Carnival did not disappoint on no level.  Food, service, cleanness, entertainment was A1. We are planning a family trip in 2017 Carnival has earned that businesses.

Pleasantly surprised and impressed!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date:

Carnival has promised a fun experience with every cabin, and they easily delivered with a 7 day Western Caribbean cruise on the Magic!!  The boat was clean, the room was nicely appointed, the food was great.  Even the casino impressed with the variety of games and the size itself.  The employees were friendly, engaging and offered great service.  My cruise agent, T. Flowers was also top notch, offering cabin selection advice that was spot on, pricing that was very competitive and all with a knowledgeable,  friendly demeanor.  I picked one excursion from Carnival and one from and enjoyed them both immensely!! Port selections were pretty nice with Cozumel, Belize City and Roatan.  If any changes could be made it would be to have Belize build a dock, so tendering would not be required.  I understand why they don't build a dock, but it would be a improvement in my eye.  If you want a relaxing vacation with good food, entertainment and interesting ports to visit, it would be hard to beat this Carnival cruise out of Galveston.  I will miss the Magic as it moves to Port Canaveral, FL but don't think Carnival will miss a beat by bringing in the Freedom to service this area!  One tip, is to select the "your time dining", as you have a broad window in which to eat in and you never feel rushed to make a fixed time!!

Relaxing vacation, good itinerary, nice ship

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date:

Overall my experience was very good.  Crew was nice, ports were great.  Boat was big and had a lot to do.  Cabins were bigger than some ships I've been on.  There was good food for breakfast, and lunch had tons of good options.  Dinner was disappointing, though.  Dining  room options provided variety of food choices nd the waitstaff was great.  Food taste though was lackluster.  Also Your Time Dining didn't have best dining locations and could be crowded requiring waits.  I'd have like more activities as well, particularly with 3 days at sea.  This said there was still a lot to do between ropes course, slides, mini-golf, etc.

Galveston, TX Carnival Magic 2016

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date:

Beautiful port. Embarkation process was very smooth and well organized. Only comment is there is an exit that crosses the line of folks waiting to board. This ship is beautiful and the layout is standard Carnival. The food was amazing. The entertainment was fabulous with one exception. There is a  vocal/instrumental  duo( steel drum and keyboard/vocalist) they played along with pre-recorded tracts and they were in my opinion mediocre at best- definitely not up to Carnival standards.   Ropes course, pools, and hot tubs were plenty, and not over crowded even for Spring break.

Great fun

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date:

We had a great time of the Carnival Magic.  The only disappointment we had were the number of kids abroad.  Now, we're not against kids, but there were a LOT of them on this particular cruise... And they certainly do a lot of running around (without parents too many times), here, there, and everywhere!  We tried to schedule the cruise after the school vacations, but guess we didn't do very well on that front.  Regardless, the Magic is a beautiful ship, great accommodations, friendly people,  great service, and

a great value. 

 Carnival lived up to our expectations!

We had good service in all the dining areas we ate in. We ate breakfast every morning in the Marketplace, had lunch either in the Marketplace or at the Deli and ate dinner in the formal dining room every night. Service was exceptional.

On the Elegant night be sure and eat in the main dining room if you like filet migon it was great
