Carnival Magic-1st Time and Last time

Sail Date: May 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

1st Time Carnival Cruiser and Last, Was Hoping for a Roamntic Med Cruise.Bought into New ship idea.Decor Somwhere between Kindergarten and Macdonalds.Buffet Food Average,dining room a bit better.No Service,Good Cabin. I,m sure the Carnival Regulars will like the ship Just looked Cheap.3700 Passengers is too much for this ship !Entertainment except for 2 Good Shows was awful New Theater design is horrible. Seats Do not rise towards the rear of the theater.The Ocean Plaza Ok everything else crammed into the rear of deck 5, Very Low ceilings.Too much of the Loud Wo Wo Wo Wo crowd.I am a Celebrity, Royal Carribean Cruiser and will never return to Carnival. Quite a few dissappointed other passengers looking for that flair or something special which Carnival lacks ! Formal nites were virtually non existent,I think if they allowed bare feet in the dining room some folks would have come that way.Anyway The ship itself had some nice bright spots so good luck to any booking the Carnival Magic.

Pros: New Ship-Cabin-Adult Sanctuary

Cons: 3700 Passengers Too Many for this ship !

Recommends Carnival Magic? No.
