Safe travels tomorrow
last day of work, heading out early tomorrow morning. 😆🚢🍹
today and tomorrow work then vacation. And I need it.
see you all Saturday.
I'm Floridian so no worries here but we do keep up with weather that can change on a dime here, we missed ports last August with TS Hermine on Valor then she came a week later and visited me on land. hahaha
Can't really worry about it gotta go with the flow
Aruba had 2 & Bonaire this yr and this last one went over it, they are usually out of the hurricane belt but once about every 30 yrs storms follow that path, that being said our local MET in FL don't seemed worried about it and think it will go NE maybe as a nor easter, minimal rain impact most likely so see you aboard soon!
Correction, search Carnival Magic August 26 2017
There are 2 fb groups that you can get lots of info from. Just search carnival magic 8/26/17 and ask to join group. Pretty fast about adds and answering questions.
I'm with you, 3 work days till fun n the sun!
Aww thank you very much
5 days till Magic happens. 3 work days till vacation.
everyone be safe during today's eclipse if in USA,and watching, wear your IOS eclipse eyewear.
Aruba has already had one (tropical storm) this year. Hopefully that was it!
I would normally get an inside cabin but since it's our honeymoon I splurged a little .... lol
I work nights and I am done Wednesday morning and we are driving down Wednesday night. Going to Disney Thursday and Friday.
We have a balcony but not wrap around, nice!!
I can't wait to go out on my wrap around balcony
The days are going by fast we can't wait either 4 days til we fly out
My wife and inboard next sat the 26!! Can't wait
local weather as of this morning looks good no storms to impede embarkation.
see everyone on board next sat.
we are looking to be on ship 1130 get started with dropping off carry on in cabin. welcome lunch at Buffett drinks then explore ship. let vacation begin.
I'm sure they'll enjoy it. I declined..lol.
That sounds like a lot of fun!
I booked the Adrenaline High Wire and Zip Line with Beach excursion in Grand Turk for my adult children and my daughter in law. I got very lucky and was able to rent a Cabana. While they're away, I will be relaxing with drinks in one hand and a book in the other.
love American Style
Download to Google play to use offline as well.
We usually go in November after the threat of hurricanes is pretty much over. We decided to go on this one because we have never done a southern cruise before. It will probably all be good
I just have to figure it out. Honestly I've never downloaded music to my phone. I use Google Play and FitRadio App. I was very specific when I called Carnival today to inquire and the woman said it should work. She seemed unsure IMO. Just don't want to pay for something I can't utilize.
That means apps too because they connect to the sites ...download the music you want to listen on your device in advance.
Ebronzo that's the only reason I booked the southern. Simply because I know this is hurricane season and we shouldn't have anything to worry about.
MrsRachel, I'm with you. I shouldn't have said "will be". Didn't mean to.
I have a question regarding the WiFi. My main reason for purchasing would be for What's App so I can chat with my husband who isn't traveling as well as listen to music while working out in the mornings. Does anyone know which package I should purchase, specifically to listen to Music? I know "What's App" will work with all. Not sure about my music apps. The site says it doesn't support music streaming sites, however I'm not streaming, I'm using an App. TIA😊
We are going to Aruba!! let's not jinx this worrying about the weather 😊
I'm worried too 😩
Thanks 🙏 you be safe driving sometimes it's not any safer on the ground and see you on the Ship 🚢 Yippee
Thank you Sarge
I'm glad only have to drive from Tampa to Orlando
you all be safe on flights
Aruba is the main reason why I wanted to go! I checked some sites and it said that Aruba isn't really in the hurricane belt. But I think getting there will be the problem.
If they did it would be under their beverage list
Yes I guess some are more strict with the rules I don't understand all their rules so I just don't worry about them
That's interesting. I've never worn my blues but I've seen people where them on the cruise.
Oh I know!!!😩
No he's not bringing something to do with can't wear his suit outside of USAF he had to ask if it was ok at our wedding
Well Our cruise is coming fast everyone that's leaving the 26th out of Port Canaveral Wishing everyone A great time and to those are waiting on their upcoming cruise & Everyone have a safe fun Time !!! Happy cruising Everyone !!
I'm hoping that the storms and hurricanes stays away. I would hate to miss going to Aruba.
Your lucky I take care of my nephew that's terminally ill. My sister won't be home from work til 11:30 pm Thur. And we have to get up at 2 to be at the airport by 4 ugh but I'm super excited for our honeymoon
I have 3-1/2 working days 😊 Decided to take half day Thursday to finish packing and get to bed early. We are leaving for the airport at 2:45am Friday morning 😴
Wow amazing I only have 4 working days left too ! We're flying in fri afternoon I wish we could fly faster we're leaving at 6am 😜
4 working days until vacation 6 days until head for Orlando. 7 days until the Magic Happens.
This is who I booked! Thank you!
If your asking me I don't think that he's bringing them
Is he wearing his blues for the formal dinner? #USAF
We have used Park n Cruise a few times always a good experience. They have vet discount too. They are right off the expressway.
You can go online and book before hand or after you board. First night usually not booked
TIA ? Tampa Int. Airport? Opposite coast, but if flight is cheaper...
My boys love them!
Add me on Snapchat Jordandavis_23
It doesn't sound to good. I know my husband is disappointed.
I have researched this and talk to some veteran cruisers and have found that Carnival does not show pay-per-view events. I was also told that the bandwidth is so awful you can't even stream it. With that said, I have a friend going on the cruise who thinks he might be able to get it. I REALLY wanna watch this fight. Hoping someone finds a way to watch it.
Lots of Honor may be the cheapest. Here's their site. http://www.lotsofhonor.com/
It's $6.75 a day and they shuttle you to and from the port.
We are on the Magic too. You waited and booked after on board? Thanks
What's the cheapest and easiest way for parking for Port Canaveral? TIA
They don't usually have a theme night...other than formal night. BUT the night club may do something..have seen white out/night before.
I'm taking t shirts shorts swim trunks. it is vacation after all
Well it all depends on what he likes I booked at the steakhouse our first night on the boat because we're on our honeymoon and we get a free bottle of wine for reservations on first night of cruise that's for magic I don't know what ship your going on but go from there
Not that I'm aware of a special color but just the usual classy attire for fine dinning etc ...
So excited for the cruise! Does anyone know what special clothing to bring? I know on some cruises in the past they have had "white out" parties. Is there any info on what special events and dress for this ship? Just curious...Thanks!
We will be celebrating my husband's 50 th while on this cruise. Should I book a special dining meal? Just dine in main dining room? Any suggestions would be really appreciated .. TIA
Congrats on your 34 years we are newlyweds just got married in June Happy Anniversary and Sailing
Yes My Husband and I are on Our Honeymoon It will be Amazing this is my husbands very first cruise. We Soooo can't wait. We are also flying in the day before but we won't arrive til 4pm but that's ok I'm just waiting for the cruise. I've been on princess before
Count down. . 2 weeks. Our ship is almost full. 8 open staterooms left. 5 balcony & 3 Ocean view, mid ship on decks 2 & 1. Im sure some last minute cruiser will fill them.

Prayers for a quick recovery
I just had a birthday august 1 my sister has one on sept 7 so we are the same age for 1 month so celebrating on the cruise yea
Thank you and you as well!
Absolutely!! We are staying at Universal Loews Royal Pacific and the early access to the park and unlimited express passes are the most exciting part of the stay. I hope you have a wonderful time at Disney.
Yes, counting every day! I come back home but then 4 days later I fly back to
Orlando spending 5 days at Disney! I also love Universal! Make sure you do Harry Potter!
Anyone else counting down the days until we sail away? We fly into Orlando the day before and we have the entire day to relax. Upon our return, we are spending an extra three days at Universal...this is a much needed two week getaway.
Same here.. Staying the 25 th in Orlando with BIL and checking in at 12 Saturday! Can't wait!
So looking forward to seeing Aruba with a night time sail away.

How are the teen and tween clubs on the ship?
sports bar on ship. and the bars for most part. I have been able to watch Packers games while on ship.
We are sailing on Magic in 3 weeks. There is an important UFC event that night (26th). Is there a place to watch such events? Does anyone know if we can connect an iPad up some way to get it? TIA.
this time in 3 weeks we will be on the boat getting ready to sail, can't wait!!!
No fair, your including vacation days before cruise lol
Cannot wait to get this cruise started. I look forward to seeing everyone at the sail away party and I expect you all to know 'the Wobble' & 'Cupid Shuffle'. This will be my first time on the Magic & the largest Carnival ship I've been on.

Cool! Meet you at the Blue Iguana Tequila bar!
see you there
Us too! 51 and counting!
51 Days baby!!! #Carnivalmagic
So the latest would probably be around 11?
Depends on you disembark group number. Usually they begin with first groups around 8-8:30am. Since we live locally we usually ask for the last group which disembarks by about 10:30-11am. When you get your disembark tags (left in your room on the last sea day) you can take them to guest services and ask if you can change groups if you need an earlier departure.
On average, what time can I expect to be off of the ship at the end of the cruise?
it definitely will, thanks calendar, hope you have a wonderful time
Take it easy and follow doctors orders. There will be time for cruising later.
NYC on the roll call! Can't wait to sail 8/26
We did ours in the dining room on the magi last time
Muster is,always done in areas that you meet and then shown lifeboat process. Part of international survival at sea.
Still not able to go on this cruise with everyone, surgery went fine ,Dr put me off work for another 4 weeks , hurts the wallet, roll hopefully be able to take this itenary when we do go , please let us know how it goes , thanks
Anyone know if Magic does muster on the inside recently?
thank you so much , we will , my wife is hooked
So sorry to hear this. Pray you have a speedy recovery and can get another cruise scheduled.
We will not be joining you all after all , I have to have back surgery, what a vacation , I hope everyone has a great cruise and have some fun for us, please post how it goes , maybe next year

Hello all. Looking forward to a great cruise
Man, I know it must have been a busy few months for me!!! Look at the people we have going now!!! Welcome everyone!!! We're going to have a blast!! Feel free to offer and tips, recommendations, or ask many questions you may have. There seem to be quite a few Magic repeat cruisers, and those thane done this itinerary onboard now.
Has anyone done the Jeep or mini-Hummer ATV tour in Aruba? Looking for some ideas on what to expect as far as time, what sites/area did you see, and did you enjoy it.

That's a good location, and one of my favorites onboard, mid-ship, mid-deck.
Just keep checking it often. It goes by the information dcstopcop listed, but can open anytime with 1 or more slots being available.
Sails August 26 2017 if you plan on being aboard
FTTF may it depends on number of Diamond and Platinum guests on board as,well as if anyone cancel. I suggest once a week checking as we are a bit over 200 days until she sails.
I know it's hard to predict, does anyone know if they will open up any more FTTF for the Magic sailing August 27 2017
We want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas
It was a few days after we had a year away... Might want to check each day, doesn't take long.... doc
Was there a specific day they opened it up during the week. Or just random days
I know they have open it up twice since April... I got mine and it was closed two days later... doc
Just checked on the excursions for the FTTF for Magic sailing 8/26/17 and it's sold out already. Guess I will check back every now and again to see if more opens up. FTTF is the way to go!
I have been pondering on this cruise for about a month. I check the price and cabin availability there was one balcony left on the 7th deck mid ship and it's the same location we typically book. I finally booked it. I think it was meant to be. 296 day seems so far away. Come on August 26, 2017 - carnival magic... can not wait!🌴☀️🌴☀️
My husband and I will be on the same cruise. Some schools are just getting back and others still have about a week so I would say there is a good chance there will be a fair amount of kids on the ship. Don't let that disappoint you. Carnival has so many activities that you rarely see them. I have been shocked at the number of kids they have said were on the ship we were because we barely noticed. You will have a great time if there are 70 or 700.
Never Cruised in August any tips will there be tons of kids ?
So glad to be booked again on this ship !! Great great ship !!
Very very nice just got off ! So happy with the trip and ship we booked again for this trip
Just off of the Glory on Saturday. We saw the Magic in several ports and she looks like a great ship.
Thanks that's the page I just sent a join request on. 😊
I believe I set it to public,there are about 45 people on the page so far.
Which fb group? I searched and it looks like there are 2 groups for this cruise. One is a closed group, the other is not...
People have not joined the page. I approve add request as soon as I am notified of them.
We'll also be on Magic, Aug. 26, 2017 celebrating our 28th anniversary...hope to see you all on the ship...Enjoy your all's celebrations!!
We will be on the Magic with you on August 26, 2017 celebrating our 17 anniversary , you will have a great time ,treat it like it is your honeymoon
Booked 20 year anniversary cruise! We've never had a honey moon.
I'm confused? Just joined FB page that Matt below set up and as of today (8/28) there are only 11 members? Did we loose some?
Just joined FB group at
Can't wait! Our cruise on Valor leaves in 11 days, but we've never been on the Magic or any in that class! And first time to EVER have 2 cruises booked at once.
Just joined the FB page. Can't wait for this cruise to get here. We're up to 72 people signed up, but I guess the final tally won't be official until final payment which is in June.
We will be on this one! Not to wish the year away.... But can't wait, several members of our families from different states will be with us too.
Created a page on fb for the cruise.
Carnival Magic August 26 2017 ,that is the name of the page.
Does anyone know if there is a fb page for this cruise? Just wondering as someone had created one for our last cruise and it was nice seeing and interacting with ppl that were going to be cruising with us
This is our Family and Friends Cruise. We have a group of 60 from around the country going so far.
Look forward too seeing everyone on board
Nannan grandad brother and friend booked on deck 11 cloud 9 balconies so excited
So far me my hubby my mom and stepdad are going, looking forward to this amazing time!!!!
Booked yesterday for my hubby and I to celebrate my 40th birthday-which is the day before the ship leaves!!
Booked Family Cruise
