A Great Anniversary Cruise

Sail Date: May 22, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise..the staff was exceptional about all of our needs and the port trips all ran smoothely. The food was very good in all of the venues.
The only problem we encountered was overcrowding of the shows in the main theater.

Pros: The stateroom bed was the most comfortable we have had on any cruise!

Cons: There was not enough room for the evening shows

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!

Ship Quality
This new ship is very nicely decorated and the staff are extremely helpful.
Food and Dining
The food was delicious and also allowed us to make healthy choices.
Cabin / Stateroom
The best bed we've encountered on any cruise line....the closets and drawers and shelves were quite adequate for our clothing.
The shows were great (what we could get into)..they did not have a second show of the Beatles Experience and the room was beyond SRO, the final show was sooooo crowded we were not able to see it at all and we were first seating!
Service and Staff
Our stewardess, Hanah was very helpful with all of our requirements and went above the call of duty to make us comfortable and happy.
Messina, Sicily
Messina is truly beautiful..Of course I am a Messina!!!. Taorimina was very beautiful and our tour guide was exceptional! We enjoyed the tour and also the city of Messina.
Don't Miss: Greek Theater
Marseille (Provence), France
The cab ride into town was like the Indy 500! The train to the top to the cathedral...was an experience!
Naples, Italy
The ship ride to the Isle of Capri was fun, and the sights were amazing! Sorrento was lovely and the food was great at the Velo Bianca..the wait staff very good. Pompii was truly a learning experience and I highly recommend this trip.
Don't Miss: Pompii
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Rome is the eternal city and we enjoyed the guided tour! The lunch was very good and the wine, the wine was Molto Bene
