small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2014


Carnival Magic was a great cruise ship. The ports of call were great. The ship was beautiful with plenty to do at anytime. The ship was clean, the staff was friendly, the entertainment was wonderful. I would highly recommend this cruise and would definitely do it again.

Easy Breezy

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jul 06, 2014


If you want an opportunity to unwind with a touch of class, go on the Carnival Magic.  There is someone for everyone all the time.  The staff was amazing, the entertainment extraordinary and I enjoyed every minute.  You never felt like you were on a boat.

Best food on a Carnival cruise.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2014


The ship was the nicest and the food was the best that I've experienced.  The water slides and ropes course are very impressive.  The outdoor theater was much better than I expected.

Give us some oldies

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jun 28, 2014


Overall nice cruise, but am disappointed that Carnival only caters to the 20-something and 30-something crowds - why?    Why not balance things a little?    Every bit of music, pool bash, games, every day was from that generation,    Can't they throw-in a Beach-Boys tune now and then?

never again!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jun 22, 2014


I have cruised on at least 6 different cruise lines, and decided to try Carnival Magic. Never again. I did not receive one good meal.   My special diet meant that I had to wait for my meals over 1.5 -2.5 hours. The waiting meant that  either my party had to wail also, or they received their food and finished eating it long before my food arrived.  I spent alot of time waiting  in the Dining room. After finally coming to the attention of the head person of the dining room, the food  was still not really edible.  I sent most of the food back.  There was also a horrible accident on board the ship.  One of the large signs on the sports square on the outside deck of the ship fell and shattered over my head.  The sign was at least 4'x6' in size and made of very thick plexiglass.  It shattered, Knocking my hat off with in 12 inches of my body.   What did they do? after 2 days  they sent to my room a  $7 bottle of sparkling water.  Plus, Carnival Cruise let the teenagers on board take over the ship.  They were running up and down in hallways,  lying on the floors in front of the elevators, and pushing all the buttons on all the elevators.  Bullying the younger children in the Childs Camp area.  My grandson did not want to go because of them.  He was in the 12- 14 year olds,  the teen that were causing the problems  were in the older teens group.

Very disappointing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2014


The beer and food were always cold. Service in dinning room was horrible. The staff was not friendly they looked like they did not want to be there and you could never get any service on deck. One morning we woke to throw up still in elevator every morning we woke to the back deck still dirty with beer bottles and food on tables and/or ground from night before. There was always one broken elevator.  The boat actually broke and we were late getting to our first port of call. This was our first trip with carnival and will be our last sorry to say. I will stick with Norwegian no problems there!!!

Had an AMAZING time on the Magic!!!!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: Jun 15, 2014


I can't say enough good things about our cruise!   By far one of the best experiences for my family and I!   The ship is absolutely beautiful!  We stayed in cabin 6295 which was a balcony cabin.  It was spacey and comfortable.   Our room stewards treated us great and were always prompt getting us anything we needed.    

The FOOD was SOOOO good everywhere we ate!   I think I gained  15lbs eating!    We ate in the dining room most of our nights--  I can't say enough about our wait staff..   LOVE THEM!   Such great guys with killer service!   I wanted to take all of them home with me.!  LoL

My 10 year old daughter always found plenty of things to do on the ship.   Waterworks was her favorite.   But she  also really enjoyed  Camp Carnival...   She made several of friends there and they always had a good time.   I always felt that she was safe to go do her own thing on the ship at times which is always a good  feeling.    The Magic is VERY kid friendly!   I've been on the Conquest before and it just didn't compare!   So if your traveling with kids I highly recommend this ship!

 

We cant't wait for our next cruise ... Best way to travel!

Terrible experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: May 11, 2014


You need to notify travelers that you require their credit card with them if they need to increase their credit lines. I gave your guest services the Capital One credit card number and security code to increase my credit card. My Chase credit card had a fraud charge from Jamaica and sent me an email to confirm which I could nort responf to since I was on board your Carnival. Chase closed down my card and I could not buy anything on your ship That sucked, particularly since I gave you another card info and you refused it cause I did not have the card. Will NEVER cruise with you again. Frankly compared to other ships, the Carnival rocked and rolled and made us sick. Your entertainment was terrible and you close your casino at night.NEVER WILL BOOK WIYH YOU AGAIN.

Our 2nd cruise with Carnival

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Magic | Sail Date: May 04, 2014


Carnival Magic was a fabulous ship with the entire crew being so very friendly. Our Roatan, Honduras port visit was very beautiful. My wife and I zip lined for the very first time. She is 56 and I am 64 and it was most exhiliarating! When we anchored at Belize, we took Mayan Air over to San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, rented a golf cart and went straight to Palapa's Bar and Grill. We snorkeled while we were there and saw beautiful tropical fish, 2 dolphin, and a ray. While there we at Grouper that was delicious and had the best conch ceiveiche I've ever had. The Belzean people are extremely friendly and the food served was very fresh. We had been to Cozumel before so we took a taxi over to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville and swam and snorkled to seeing beautifully colored tropical fish. The entire staff was extreemly hospitalable and very friendly. While in Cozumel we took Vince's, Carnival staff, recommendation and my wife got a Tanzanite ring and matching earlings for an unbelievable low price. I verified the cost when we returned to the states and it is truly a remarkable savings. She is very happy with her purchase. While onboard we booked another 7 day cruise for this coming Septemeber 2014 to go to Jamaica, Grand Cayman, & Cozumel along with another couple. Once again we are counting the days until we return to Carnival Magic.

119 Tips for Carnival Magic

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.

The dining room experience was amazing. We tried a lot of dishes that we had never eaten such as shark.

The Seaday Brunch is fabulous!

Bring a $2 bill with you, if you have little children! Also, wait till the last 2 days to book your spa treatments!

Late evenings in the hot tubs, great to relax in.

We liked the variety of breakfast choices. I had the oatmeal and my husband likes that they would make his eggs over easy. The only thing missing was a hotter salsa. Need to have some fresh jalapeño peppers or at least a real home made salsa. So many choices that it's best to know what is

Arrive at the formal dining 30 minutes prior to opening, as the line gets long. Don't stress to much about "formal night". It is not too strict if your not wearing sequins. Keep your receipts for any purchases so you won't be surprised, because it is easy to forget.

Get tot he comedy club 30 minutes early to sit. Pre-buy excursions for the easiest time. Lacking a few key toiletries for purchase, so try not to forget them. Be sure to explore the whole Lido deck, there are several options! The serenity deck is SUPER comfy, but fills up quick!

The ship is huge and you will get turned around -- a lot. Even after a week on board we were constantly going the wrong direction and felt like a couple of salmon. You get used to it though and if you aren't too embarrassed to ask, the crew will cheerfully straighten you out.

To cut down on your liquor bill dont forget to use RUM RUNNERS. They are not detected and its a great way to cut liquor bill $$$$$

From MeetOnCruise iPhone App: Go at least 20 min early to shows in the showtime lounge as seating is very limited and goes fast!

The pizza is awesome. The coffee on the Lido deck seemed superior to the dinning rooms--and was really excellent.

Room service for breakfast is terrific

We had a room on the 11th floor. It was the perfect location!!

Take advantage of sea-day brunches. Very Good!

The BBQ grill on deck 5 next to the Red Frog pub had the best grab and go food. It is only in service on sea days.

Get up early so you don't miss a thing.

Have an omlet custom made for you on Lido deck!! Enjoy the hot tubs on the outside edge of the ship on deck 5!

Ocean Side Barbecue on deck 5 is a great sea days only snack option. The food is good and it's free.

Serenity, Cloud 9 Spa, Comedian Brunch, Trivia Contests, the Hat Trick Casino and the Red Frog Pub were all our favorites. Forget the bingo to expensive and if you win and another wins you have to share the prize instead of issuing two top prizes. The ship could have afforded it.
