Carnival Magic

February 2020 - 8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Magic

Fantastic cruise!!

We had such a wonderful time. Everything was great and if it wasn't, we didn't dwell on it. We enjoyed being with our best friends, the ports, the ship, the food, the entertainment. All of it!

Carnival Magic

April 2016 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Magic

Wonderful trip!!

This was Secret Agent Man's first cruise and my third. I'd only been on Disney prior to Carnival so I had high expectations and they were met well. We loved the added space in our Ocean Suite and have booked another one for our next cruise. We had one problem in our bathroom: the bathtub cracked. We were unable to use it as it was a shower/tub combo for most of the trip. They kept trying to fix it but it kept breaking. Secret Agent Man is a plumber and he didn't think it was installed correctly. Carnival gave us a key to a room right above us so we could shower and they ended up refunding 25% of our cruise fare and sent us to the steak house for a complimentary dinner and gave us a bottle of wine. We felt we were very taken care of regarding this issue and it didn't impact how much fun we had in the slightest. We thought the flatiron steak in the MDR was better than what we had in the steak house. We loved all the dining options and great entertainment. Overall, this was a wonderful trip and we suckered our best friends into going with us on our next cruise!

Cruise tips

San Juan, Puerto Rico

I screwed this one up. I thought, from watching lots of YouTube, I'd have a grasp on where to go in San Juan. I didn't. It was very crowded, dirty with graffiti everywhere. People were not mean but certainly not friendly. It wasn't what I expected but I should have planned an excursion. I really want to go back and see this beautiful city but with someone who knows what they're doing. Did have great views of the fort as we departed.

Grand Turk Island

Cannot complain! This is a beautiful island with beautiful water! We were the second ship to arrive so no free chairs. That's ok. We paid $30 for two chairs and an umbrella. I probably could have bartered with him but I don't mind supporting the locals. The sand was a bit difficult to walk on for us "fluffy" types. The water was perfect. Snorkeling was pretty good. I saw lots of Sgt Majors, a Trumpet Fish, a Flounder and lots of other fish. We can't wait to return to Grand Turk! Plus, it was towel animal takeover day on the ship!

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Again, port area was clean and safe. Some pushy people but not bad. We took the Catamaran Sail, Snorkel and Open Bar excursion through Carnival. It was so much fun! About an hour to the snorkel site, Shittens Bay... yes, you read that right. Snorkeling was okay and water was calm and warm. The crew on the boat was so great. They kept us "hydrated" and happy. Couldn't have asked for a better time! On the way back, we observed a beautiful, full-arc rainbow framing part of the island. It was unreal.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

Port Everglades was easy to get to even with the construction. We stayed a day after the cruise and spent the day on the water taxi going up and down the intercoastal. Before the cruise, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. All four of us in one room because it was expensive! We didn't realize until we started looking for hotel rooms that it was Superbowl weekend! Duh. Explains why everything was so expensive! But, good hotel. After the cruise, we stayed at the Hilton Marina. Great hotel!!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

The port area was clean and safe. We took a water taxi to a free beach and paid $30 for three chairs and two umbrellas. The water temperature was perfect...I was concerned it might be too "refreshing." Very pushy people on the main street in town. It was dirty and I didn't feel super safe.

Belize City, Belize

Pretty dirty but we didn't do an excursion so all we saw was the town. Next time, we'll do an excursion.

Cozumel, Mexico

We didn't get off the ship at this port so I wasn't sure how to rate it. But, we loved being onboard while everyone else was not.
