Carnival Magic

March 2013 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Western

First time cruising

We started off good as the Carnival staff noticed my husband had handicaps and had us get on the ship without having to stand in the long lines. It was so very nice of them to do that for him. We really wasn't sure when we first got in the ship as to where to go; not much direction but after looking around and reading we found out. The staff in the Northern Dining room were absolutely fantastic. Alekandra was the nicest waiter I have ever meet and treated everyone fantastic and had tons of personality! The state rooms were clean and comfortable and were kept clean the entire trip; very fast also. If you have children there were tons of things for them and food catered to children as well as adults. The top deck; Serenity is adults only and has nice comfortable loungers and a bar and hot tub (we all called it the warm tub as it felt like pool water). The two things I did not like was the warm hot tub and not even bartenders at each bar; especially the main ones. They got you off the ship very quickly for the excursions and back on just as quick. The photographers did a very good job at all the phot stations.The last day when departing was so fast I could not even believe it!

busykaren's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - Excellent shopping right at the new pier, you don't even have to travel out of that area if you don't want to walk much.
George Town, Grand Cayman - You can go on an early excursion and still have time to shop at lots of places right on the Pier and time to go to the beach. Taxi's are plenty.
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - If you are in a hurry go to the Lido deck for meals; if you have time to be pampered wait and go to the dining places.
Galveston, Texas - You have to fly into Houston. I recommend private transportaion to Galveston over Carnival's bus shuttle.
Montego Bay, Jamaica - The hop on and off bus just takes you to part of the town and back it does not drive anywhere at all by the mountains. I think a driving tour up to the top & back would be good
