Awesome cruise eperience!

Sail Date: September 25, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Our trip to the mediteranian was awesome. Carnival Magic was a very smooth sailing ship. The layout of the ship was much like other carnival ships but brand new and larger. We chose Carnival for our trip because we wanted to spend as much time exploring different ports of call and less time on the ship. Carnival's 12 day cruise only had 3 days at sea. We were ale to see so much more of the mediteranian than other cruise lines. My husband and I usually travel to one place and stay there for many days/weeks to explore on our vacations. After our first cruise to the caribbean in Feb. we were really excited to cruise through the mediteranian. Carnival had long days at port which gave you alot of time to get a feel for each place and you also knew you had a comfortable, clean and calm place to go home to at the end of each day. Loved it! Planning our next trip already!

Pros: Ship was brand new. The ports of call, and the excursion choices were amazing!

Cons: We may have been on the young side for entertainment desires. We liked the entertainment on our last Carnival cruise to the carribean in February better.
