Carnival Magic

July 2017 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Eastern

Long Waits Magically Appear Everywhere on this Boat

Overall, we had a great time, but this was due more to the excursions and not the experience on the ship. The wait for the buffet and dining room and the over worked staff really killed the normal friendly vibe I get from Carnival Cruises.

brglock's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - We booked Scuba Diving at this port was disappointed with the service from Stuart Cove, their was some current in the area and the dive masters we had left some of the less experienced members of our group, resulting in them drifiting away from the dive site causing them to have to abort the dive. Typically, (if you are not familiar with diving) one DM would take the lead while the other stays in the rear in this case both of them took off to the front, very unprofessional on their part and not the typical service I receive from them.
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic - This port was actually very nice being brand spanking new probably helps with that though. We booked our diving outside of Carnival and the experience was fantastic. If you go to Amber Cove and plan to dive don't book with Carnival, give Aqua Adventures by Scuba Dive Sousa a call.
Grand Turk Island - We booked Scuba excursions here as well, the process was easy and the Carnival provider for this excursion picks you up on the beach right by the ship. The diving was incredible, just didn't get the same level of service we got at the last port.
Port Canaveral, Florida - Embarkation was easy, getting off the ship was even easier make sure to have some cash on hand for a porter they save you a lot of time.
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - Make sure you plan for at least 3 hours for dinner service on this ship, between waiting for a table to actually getting through the meal. Note that you have to show up to comedy shows an hour in advance to get tickets. If you like to schedule a busy day of on board experiences just make sure to add enough time to eat, as the lines will be long!!
