July 2016 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Eastern
We had a GREAT time on the Carnival Magic! There was so much stuff to do we couldn't even do it all! We stayed on deck 9 mid ship, which is perfect for families who have kids going to Camp Ocean. The midship elevators are the only elevators that let you out directly in front of Camp Ocean. Make sure your kids stay for at least one of their parties. Our kids loved it and received awesome goodie bags. We came to pick them up around 1am and they still weren't ready to go!
5 stars for the food and our head waiter Hengrik and room steward Ramell, they were top notch. The cruise director Dr. E has got to be the one of the hardest working men at sea! Carnival is truly the Fun ship, the neon 80's Rock and Glow Party was epic! I highly recommend the Cat in the Hat breakfast as well as the Chef's Table. I can do a review on the Chef's Table by itself, it was just that good!
Initially, my husband (1st time cruiser) was not wowed by the idea of cruising as a vacation, but he had so much fun, that he now wants to go on another one!
I took off 1 star because the Magic had a strong sewage smell toward the back of the ship on decks 7 & 8 it turned my stomach. Luckily our cabin was on deck 9, but I really feel for the cruisers who had to smell sewage for the length of their vacation.
