February 2017 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western
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.
