Great new ship

Sail Date: May 22, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

2nd cruise for this big beautiful ship so was super clean with terrific staff. The ship was well equiped, great gym facilities and if you are willing to pay the price the spa was top notch. More hot tubs than other ships we have been on. Of course the down side was more people.

Pros: Our dining room steward was terrific

Cons: too many people - everywhere

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!

Great evening shows and a few other activities, could have used more on the at sea days.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Great staff, good food selection.
Cabin / Stateroom
We enjoyed our stateroom, paid extra for the balcony and were surprised when we compared with an oceanview room (priced less) that had more closet space and 2 bathroom spaces.
Service and Staff
Naples, Italy
Enjoyed the drive of the Amalfi coast with stop at a woodworking factory and the town of Almafi.
Don't Miss: Pompeii
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
A real downer, expensive tour with guide that gave us about 1hr 30min free time to find our way to sites in this huge city.
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands

Don't Miss: Caves of Drach
Savona (Genoa), Italy
took the 3 "city" tour, interesting drive, but one city too many
Marseille (Provence), France
Did the wine tour but spent most of the time in town.
Don't Miss: could miss it all
Venice, Italy
Venice is unique, everyone should see it at least once during their life.
Don't Miss: see it all!
Messina, Sicily

Don't Miss: Greek Theater
