Good cruise overall, Great ship!
Carnival Magic Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Our stateroom was good, and very quiet. Of course we did a lot of research to find a good room. We loved the amenities of the ship. The adults only Serenity area was a great place for adults to get away. The waterpark and ropes course along with the rest of the sports amenities were great for the kids. There is also a good variety of bars and restaurants choices for everyone. The entertainment staff did a good job also. We had some good comedians (not great, but good), and the magic show we had in the main theater was the best theater show I have seen on a cruise. (I wish I remembered the name of the show, but it was very visually dynamic) The only 2 main issues was this ship has a lot of motion compared to the previous 6 cruises we have taken. I don't think the stabilizers under the ship control motion as well as other ships, and perhaps this is due to the size of the ship. Also the vibrations and shaking that occurs on this ship when putting the engines in reverse were more dramatic than other ships we have been on. These were minor annoyances though and the ship was good overall.
