Finally decide on going back to Nacho Cocum in Cozumel. Been there twice before a loved it. Anyone else going there who wants to share a cab let me know. Keep an eye for me and Val. First day on board we wear matching Brown and white Hawaiian shirts.
70% of the time it works every time
I pack the night before! Lol. Cruise number 16 so I'm getting use to this however I'm so excited to experience this ship and "Ultra" cruise!!
My husband will pack next weekend. Me I pack usually on Wednesday and Thursday of the week before.
The luggage is out now if I can just get through this last week of work
Look up on Google cruise diva packing list. It has men's and women's packing lists. That should help.
Just breathe :) then search 1st time cruise tips and packing list, you will learn a lot. Make a list and check things off as you go
, I'm trying to get everything in the order my husband is on oxygen and crap I got all the stuff to do
Never been on a cruise I don't know what to do
Trigger point injections in my neck today and still no help I'm so ready for this Cruise
I have so much to do and don't know where to begin
About 60% completed.
Will be packing late next week. We head to Florida on the 1st to spend a few with my wife's mother.
15 days to go! Who's packed?!?
I just looked on their site. Tried to find a room for our dates... wow it really is sold out
Just called Carnival to see if there are any price drops and I was told no because the cruise is "sold out"......hmmmm
I have some lamps in my house
Beetlejuice Beetlejuice beetle..... Ya dare me?! I'll say itttttttt
She's right! It's a quote from anchorman. Randomness :)
And I love lamp shades!! Lol not sure what you are referring to but couldn't resist! Lol
Were booked too!!...hubby and I will be celebrating 7 years on the 2nd!! Can't wait to celebrate together momma!
I love lamp
Ultra ultra ultra
Hopping is okay I get the same way once you step on board it's like ahhhh now I can relax we made it
Soon real soon
My husband and I are booked also, 11/09 3 years for us.
Let the count down continue
And youtube cruise vlogs
I keep checking this app, book face, cruise critic....
I know I can't stop checking this app a million times a day...... impatient
Nope, I'm super excited!!!!
My husband and I are booked also, you both have many years on us, our anniversary is on the cruise Friday. 11/11
I know right!!!
My wife and I are booked for LFK too. You have 15 years on us. April will make 20 for us.
I heard that!
This cruise can't come fast enough!! It's so hard to work!!
19 days and counting couldn't get November 7th which is our actual anniversary but it will have to do
Just booked our first Excursion To Little French key can't wait it is so beautiful 35 years Anniversary to the man of my dreams and I still love him with all my heart are very first cruise
You'll see us hopping around after a few drinks so Hop hoppity hop hop hop
Love walking up that gang plank. Once I get to the point of crossing over from the walkway to the ship I always hop on board. Just so you know, I do not continue to hop on the ship. I just take one hop on to the ship. Maybe I should have just kept this one to myself. Yes we are EXCITED!!
Exactly 3 weeks from today, I'll be taking a nap on the magic! Can't wait, IM so sleepy
4 hands?! She's a mutant! Everybody panic!!
I cannot wait to be holding a drink or four with you guys!!!!!
I'm so ready! Woo hoo!
Me too❗️Excited and packing😎
No, I am right there with you. Already packing.
20 days and a wake up!!! Am I the only one this excited???
Yes, the clock is ticking
Ok, thank you! I'm looking forward to reading comments and see what everyone is saying
Me either. They will get back to you they are really good about it
Yeah I got accepted to the ultra group but I don't gamble, I'm waiting to b accepted into the others. What does the pic look like on this group?
There is a public one we joined. There's quite a few groups it seems. We aren't ultra though
Nope, that's my uber ride to the moon. Day trip
Cool, one is for the Ultra Casino group. The other is by Chris Gates
I joined the ones I saw, lol
I found 2
Ok, it is Facebook, in the search box type Carnival Magic Cruise November 5, 2016. It's a closed group, click join and Chris Gates will let you in and you can see all the posts. It's really a cool group. 😀
Yeppers....it's movin right along :)
I have not joined that and had no idea how to join or find it...
Launch is scheduled for 5:30
Evidently there is a good chance there will be a rocket launch at cape canaveral on the 4th. Hope it's a night launch!!!!
3 weeks from right now!!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!
Me too. Have you joined the Facebook group. Lots of nice people. Several are platinum cruisers. They would have good info for you too.
I would too! And heck maybe a romantic dinner too!! I'm so excited for you!!
You will be good. Ours is a balcony, plan to have room service breakfast out there😀
How exciting!!!! I bet your room will b amazing!!! I was looking at pics of the suits they are nice, and the balconies are too. What a good guy!!! We're in the middle so I think we just have other rooms around us, but I don't know
I'm normally on 5or 6
You are fine, 9th is good. It depends what is above and below you. My husband treated me to the nicest room we have ever done on the 12th.
I agree, I like it paid for so we don't have to worry about it but my friend says wait.... so I'm waiting shoretrips? I really want to do the dune buggy thingy they offer in Cozumel What floors do you think are best? We're on the 9th, sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions
We are using an outside company, ShoreTrips. We bought 1 from Carnival in Roatan. I know that everyone has their own opinions. I like to have it out of the way and paid for.
Oh good, I was going to ask you about excursion.... when is the best time to book those? I read somewhere that you get the best deal your first day on the cruise? I bet seeing the ruins will be amazing! I've never done an excursion before
I love 7 day cruises. My husband is excited to see the Mexican ruins and we are doing them in two of the stops. We love going to the ports.
Omgoodness Alaska would be amazing to do! I think in a few years that will b one we will do. This is our first 7 days, I've heard it's too long but I thought 5 was way too short
It can get old after the 4th one but I just love being on a cruise. We did just do Alaska in August. It was amazing, beautiful and really fun.
Our other cruise left from Charleston so we've only done east coast, I bet west coast is pretty cool?!
I'm really excited we normally do west coast, this is only the second cruise from the east coast. It is going to be a blast.
Congratulations and happy early anniversary! This will be our second and I'm so freaking excited!!! I've been watching YouTube videos about the ship
This will be my 7th and my husbands 4th. I got him hooked when we married. We are celebrating our 5th anniversary. How about you.
Yay, so are we!!! Have you cruised before?
Are you both sailing on the Nov 5th cruise?
Everyone is definitely clock watching!
3 Fridays from now we will be on our way to the airport at this time. :)
3 more Fridays and we are I-95 South bound!!!!! Woo-hoo!
You do need to type out November 5 don't use the numbers for the date it should come up
Don't put in the year.
Just type Carnival magic november 5
I've tried a few times to get on the groups page on face book without luck. I'm using Facebook.com/groups/carnivalmagic110516. Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Thanks cruisers!
And I just realized posting and working don't mix bad bad spelling
Here is the name as it appears on my Facebook. Carnival Magic Cruise November 5, 2016
Hi louandval. I couldn't find that Facebook page. I used Facebook.com/groups/carnivalmagic110516 and nothing! Lol. Help!!
Yea Dawn! Always exciting to go on your first cruise!
Hey lounval, congratulation on becoming platinum! I have a Lon way yo go yet.
Also check the cruise diva packing list
Since it's your first cruise, youtube 1st time cruise checklist. It worked wonders for us
No cares where I sit, just as long as I can't stand up without tipping over :) weeeeeeee
So are we :)
This is my first cruise
I'm with you. Have heard nothing but good things about this ship. And it's my Platinum Cruise!
Weather looks to be perfect ! I'm ready to go !
We are at 24 days! I am so ready for the next three weeks to be over. I want to sit on the Serenity Deck in the sun and just do nothing.
If its not going we will wait till Saturday and go ride to the ship. Save money on the hotel.
Hey everyone it's the boat chat! I like it
Just looked at Kennedy space stations website. It's still on the schedule. Maybe they will update it in a few days.
Oh well. Guess the storm messed that up. No need to rush going down then
I think I saw someone post that the launch may be postponed a couple days. We were looking forward to watching it
We leave in 25 days. Hoping the rocket is still scheduled to take off on Friday night from Cape Canaveral. My mom and sisters a first cruise. Hopping we all have a great time
Ship machines are tight
Can still gamble though. Winner winner chicken dinner
No you can not participate in the Ultra activities. My wife is Ultra I am not. Only perk I get is drew drinks I the casino, which is okay with me!
Wendy and I aren't ultra, we are into gambling about maybe spend fifty bucks on slots. total waste but who knows
Getting there!! Who's gonna party hardish?
What if you booked but not with the "ultra"???? Can we still participate at the casino and win big?
Time is definitely flying :) just not fast enough. Less than 4 weeks to go and only 3 more full weeks of work left for me! 17 work days!
Won't be long now! 👫
And 26 and a wakeup
Really looking forward to sail this ship this one seems the best the dream was awesome but this one even though a sister ship looks and reviews better I haven't seen one bad post bring on those ultra giveaways and those loose machines see all you ultras at our party
In the 20's :) tomorrow is 27 and a wake up for us as we are headed to Florida on Friday. We are going to have a blast. There is so much we didn't do on our last cruise, which was our 1st. Hoping there are some good shows/ activities during the day
We're doing the stingray exc this time. Just going to enjoy the ship and being lazy'ish
Not us. We typically book excursions thru carnival, although we don't do many excursions
Has anyone booked the Excursion to Little French keys from this app before just wondering if it's worth it it's our first cruise it looks awesome
As are we! Hope we can meet awesome, fun people to get trashed with.
Sea days rock. Pool, bar, pool, bar...bar..lunch..nap, dinner....bar, bar, barrrrrrrrrrrr, pizza then zzzz
Wow chainshot that's a lot of years of diving. You been diving as long as I've been alive! Lol. I bet you have seen some beautiful sights.
We are on that cruise also! First time on the Magic and really looking forward to it. 👫👙🐠
30 days and a wake-up! !
I plan on drinking as much as him ^
IM ready to get completely rocked and make a total ass of myself :)
Enyone else traveling with littles? Ours are 6 years old and 7 months ol5
Chainshot, are you familiar with the full face snorkel masks I mentioned above??
I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!!!
We are very excited. I am doing anything I can to kill time and not watch the timer! I packed a few things and have all my clothes I'm bringing in the closet separated.
No such thing as a fun day at sea, I'm usually boarded to death when not in port 😉
I'm with wendyc2009
We are excited also,
I know, we are too
I am SO beyond excited!
32 More days. First time on the east coast. Getting excited 😎👫🎂🍾
Absolutely use fins , greater mobility plus with a mask , snorkel and fins you are almost drown proof . But do learn to use them in a pool or shallow water before venturing out. I have been a diver ( certified ) for nearly 60 years , I know what I'm talking about.
We are doing sting rays :)
I think we are doing that. Wait, stingrays. ?
Agreed fins will make a huge difference. I was just checking out full face snorkel masks on line. Thinking of getting it.
It's been quiet since jumpstreet
We are very excited. Watching the timer and counting down the days. And I agree it is a quiet group
I'm with you win4ecu!
Can't seem to pull that link up. That's ok we will look for y'all! See you then!
I do only because the advantage of having fins helps you move around better but not necessarily required.
Anyone doing the manatee excursion? Hope it's as good as the dolphin we have done before
The closer we get the quieter this group gets..... Nobody excited???
Anyone that snorkels...do you wear fins or not? We don't have fins yet..do we need to buy some? We have snorkels.
Been ready to partay!
I am just ready for the cruise! :)
Who else is ready for a fun day at sea??!! They are my most favorite days!!!!
Can you send the Facebook link please.
We wear matching shirts first day! Just posted a picture on the facebook page
Usually after the safety drill. They'll have the info in your cabin. We'll be looking for you! My husband always wears some type of shirt with fish on it, jeans and cowboy boots. Can't miss him he's about 6'2". Lol
I'm with you guys but will be have fun on the slides too. Keeps me young!! Anyone know when the Ultra party will be held?
The casino for those free drinks! Lol
Ultra cruises are the best! We will be on that cruise! Can't wait! See you at the cocktail party and good luck on all the drawings! Our profile has our picture! 👫
Yeah it is! In the 30s now!

We can't wait to be perma trashed and not give an eff about anything except good weather and what we want to drink next :)
We depart on wendys bday. Nov 5.

We are arriving to port Canaveral on Friday, staying at the Hilton. Hoping we can see the shuttle launch from the hotel

Oops....commented about it on the post above lol. I like the casino but I LOVE the lido deck :)
What does ultra mean?
I'll be ultra hammeredddddddddddd. A drunken mess. Partyyyy timeeeeeeee
People keep asking what an ultra cruise is. It's for gambling.
Are you on this ultra cruise dhogan19
We're platinum as well and this is our first Ultra premier. Ultra premier are invites from carnival ocean players club, another word spend lots of money on the machines or tables to be invited. Free drinks and gifts, drawings for these invites.

What is that?
Oh yeah can't wait ultra ultra ultra
Great this will be my first.

Ok all excursions have been booked!!! ATV's in Costa Maya, Catamaran cruise in Roatan, Mayan Ruins in Belize and Underwater Cave exploring in Cozumel. It's getting close you guys!!!! So pumped!
With many ppl gambling it should make other areas a bit quieter n more room by the pool :)
Gambling invite cruise
What is an ultra cruise?
Haha yeah. Its ultra... I guess that could be good...
It's a ultra cruise
If it's a premiere or elite cruise maybe the rest of the ship won't be so crowded😀
Should be great no matter what can't wait doing the victory next week but really looking forward to this ship
I guess this will be a big gambling cruise. I don't gamble
Been on a few myself myself I find each ship has their own unique character smaller ships have things I like such as eating outside while bigger ships have more things heck I love them all never had a bad cruise love carnival
I have been on 25 cruises and 13 carnival ships can't tell one from the other LOL
Looking forward to going back to Belize get some more black onyx
Can't wait looks even better than the dream
Hopefully once it gets closer more people chat.
Facebook groups are pretty inactive as well
This does seem a bit inactive.. our last one had active ppl... I am not joining fb page cause I don't use fb..
Our 12 year old son and 7 year old daughter are goong
Us too. We are counting down the days! :)
On the carnival faqs site it shows what ships are getting it through September 10th. So far no magic. I do hope magic gets it before we go.
Well they updated the carnival app but still didn't add the magic. Hopefully they will by November
The only excursion we booked is the sting ray at cozumel. :)
Anyone doing the Catamaran Sail in Mahogany Bay?
My wife and I are excited about our first cruise. We're traveling with our 14 and 6 year old sons and wondering if anyone has children of similar ages.
Sign up for cruise critic roll call and meet and mingle if interested. :)
Any single parents ? Any single ladies ?
SCEMS51 checked in to this roll call and is traveling with 1 other guest.
Can't wait for all that yummy food and lots of alcohol with it :)
Had something similar when I was on the Breeze with Fat Jimmy's Seaside BBQ, but it was only open on Seadays, but was fantastic...Gonna like this one even more!!!
IM planning to deeeeeeestroy all the food I can, booze too
I believe that's only available on sea days. So plan accordingly. From what people say it gets some long lines
No one is responding to join requests, thinking its a pretty inactive group
TY for thebinfo
I was on magic is may. Bbq was ok, not great, and very long lines
The ultra premier cruise is for casino players who have been on a premier casino cruise. Lots of free gifts, dou card, and tons of activities in casino
