About MJtraveler

We started cruising in 2005 and love it! It is so relaxing to stay in one room and see lots of different ports. We have never has a bad cruise. I highly recommend it!

Carnival Magic

February 2017 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western

Magical Cruise!

We are retired and have cruised Carnival many times - this was one of the best ever!  The crew was great from stewards (Mochammad and his assistant!)  to waiters and chefs to bartenders to Captain.  The heart of the cruise, though, though, was the Cruise Director "Dr E!"  He loves his passengers, especially the kids, and makes everyone smile as soon as he is around.  He is the best I have ever seen on any cruise line.  We had over 1000 kids on the cruise and never had an issue.  They were kept so busy and entertained we kept hearing them complain to parents they wanted to be in Camp Carnival or the teen clubs with their friends.  KUDOS to Carnival for the kids crew!!  The Captain had to decide if we could dock in Costa Maya due to high wind and choppy seas.  We missed the port, all excursions were credited immediately, and the fabulous crew made sure we had another Fun Day At Sea!  We heard no complaints around the ship about the missed port, unlike some other cruises where a port had to be skipped.  The food in the MDR was excellent, as was the BBQ and Guy's Burgers.  Again, best ever on a cruise!  If you want a great cruise with loads of fun, take a cruise on the Magic - it really is Magical.

Relaxing Cruise

Loved the cruise and the itinerary was great!! The ports are interesting and San Juan is one of our favorite departure ports. It is right at the old city and extremely well organized.

MJtraveler's Tips

Roseau, Dominica - We visited the old sugar plantation which is now an archaeological dig. The archaeologist was phenomenal with a wealth of information about the history of the island. Be sure to take this one!!
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Beach day on St Maarten can't be beat!! Off the ship, a short boat shuttle to the beach and you are there! For hearty types, you can even walk to the beach - white sand and gentle waves!!!
Basseterre, St. Kitts - The "Fast Cat"snorkeling tour was great except for the lunch stop. Hot sand without shoes burned our feet and the lunch was just barely OK. Snorkeling was excellent!
Bridgetown, Barbados - Island tour was fun as we saw different parts of the island that we had not visited before.
Castries, St. Lucia - Loved the island, but the snorkel tour "between the Pitons" was not good. We had to enter the water on a VERY rocky shore with waves that knocked many of us down onto the rocks and coral. Lots of bad scrapes and bruises. We should have entered the water off the boat. Catamaran ride was great, though. Next time we will get a snorkel tour to a different area.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Love the beach, and the island tour was great except for the wasted time to see planes land.
San Juan, Puerto Rico - We arrived and left on days for embark and debark. Always an easy port to sail out of.
Carnival Liberty Carnival Liberty - Don't bother getting to the MDR early. The crowd clears within two minutes of the door opening and you won't have to stand around.
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - Remember that Mother nature does things her way. Relax and enjoy what she sends you. We love the "motion of the ocean" so we book high and up front. This was a choppy cruise and some of our neighbors didn't like the movement. Book center and low if motion is an issue.
