About lcoble

I took my first cruise back in 2009 on the Carnival Legend and instantly fell in love! I have now been on 8 Carnival cruises on 7 different ships. I recently became a certified travel agent so now I think it's time that I branch out to other lines so that I can have first hand knowledge to share with clients so my next two cruises are on MSC and Princess respectively. Unfortunately, I have to continue to work a full-time job and I still have kids in school so I can only take one or two cruises a year; hopefully once I'm retired that will change :)

Carnival Magic

October 2016 - Carnival Magic to Caribbean - Eastern

Awesome Cruise!

We just got off the Magic this morning and we had a fantastic time!!  Could the shows have been better?,  yes, but Dr. E and the entertainment staff did a great job of keeping the vibe upbeat. The food overall was ok, Guy's Burgers were amazing!  We ate at Cucina Capitano for lunch once which was really good but we had it for dinner one night and that was the best meal we had on the ship!  You get a ton of food for the price and it's as good as any fine Italian restaurant I've eaten at.  The staff was top notch, our wait staff and room steward were the best we've had on any cruise. The balloon drop on the last night was a lot of fun. The only downside of the cruise for us was that we didn't have enough time on the ship itself,  I would like to do a 7 or 8 day with only 3 ports so that I have more time to relax or play on the ship.

lcoble's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - We LOVE Cozumel! We took a taxi to Mr. Sancho's for the day, which was wonderful!
Tampa, Florida - Tampa is a good port to go out of, there is a lot to do there and good hotels
Carnival Paradise Carnival Paradise - The candy store is hidden, it's in a corner by the casino and since we don't gamble we didn't know it was even there until the last day; the kids were upset about that.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas - Take a taxi to Redhook and take the ferry to St. John, best beaches we've seen in the Caribbean and never crowded
Carnival Magic Carnival Magic - You can get a croissant with chocolate drizzled on it from the coffee shop before 9:30 AM. Take the stairs as much as possible cause the elevators are always crowded
