Verified Review
16 Night Transatlantic Westbound (Barcelona To Galveston)
Sail Date: October 28, 2011
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Inside
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ships theater was no bigger then a cruse ship that had 25% less passengers and the same goes for the dining rooms. If they sell out on any cruise they can not handle the capacity.
They also changed the itinerary in the middle of the cruise from a stop in the Grand Turks to a stop in the tired old Freeport. They stated a stabilizer went out and needed to be fixed in Freeport, I found out the stabilizer went out in July from a worker and the captain claimed it just went out., Very unethical not notifying cruisers that their literary would be changed. Also unethical selling cruises after July to the Turks knowing that they would not be going there.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Overall quality of food would be excellent if they could serve it at least warm and had enough people to serve it. My suggestion to you is order a 30 dollar bottle of wine every night and at least you will have good service with your cold food.
