Beware of Magic

Sail Date: November 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

Sent to Progress, not Costa Maya. Wasted my hard earned dollars on a balcony room, No view most of the time. Slow room serice, and often deivered with items missing. Long, Long lines anywhere there was any type of food. Teen club was not supervised, the kids nearly knocked down a half dozen people in less than thirty minutes. Paint fumes in my stateroom, so so food inthe the dining room and louse food in the Lido. Impossible to get anything to drink, unless you wanted to purchase it. Drinks were pushed for purchase the entire trip. All in all not a great trip. Would not recommend this ship. Hard to fine your way around.

Pros: Our waiter in the sourtherlights

Cons: most of the entire trip

Recommends Carnival Magic? No.

LOng lines for anything. Never saw one show Too many people for the areas avaiable
Cabin / Stateroom
Pleasantly surprised at the roominess of the stateroom. Lots of storage and closet space. Could have been kept a little cleaner
Food and Dining
So so food inthe Lido, banquet food in the dining room, Cost an extra thirty dollars per person for the steak house, and twelve dollars per person for the pasta resturant/ If you could get in them
Ship Quality
Layout was a maze. Needed a Gps to navigate it.
Service and Staff
Most all staff, with the exception of guest services, they moslty talked in circles when asked a question. No straight answer at all. Dining staff waiters were great. Hostess was rude
