The Carnival Magic is a brand new ship and absolutely one of the best designed ships we have traveled on. The extra added seating areas with very nice, and comfortable, furniture is much appreciated! The different games and "Big Splash" Water park on the Lido deck was the nicest I've ever seen on any ship. To top it off, the extra added internet spots throughout the ship and the different eating points throughout the ship were another fabulous feature on this ship! Again, well done Carnival designers!!!!

Menu variety and quality was disappointing.

First I want to say THANK YOU CARNIVAL for cleaning up the costumes in the ships shows. I was NOT embarrassed to take my two grandsons to the shows! As a family, and all of us repeat cruisers, we were delighted in the "added" cloth and felt comfortable in taking our children to the shows each night. We also want to say thank you for the very nice Christmas show. The variety of songs, celebration, etc. was outstanding!

Children's Programs

As always, Camp Carnival was great. The staff are wonderful and our grandsons enjoyed it! Sorry to see they didn't give Christmas presents this year (as they did last year), as our grandsons were looking for them after the Christmas program! ;-)

Service and Staff

New ship means new staff being trained. We had to ask everyday for items in our stateroom, and, for needs in the dining room.

Pros: The Carnival Magic is absolutely one of the most beautiful, well designed ship we have been on. Having the privilege to sail on it while it is still "brand new" was even nicer. My hats off to the designers who add many extras to this ship!

Cons: As a new ship, there are still many "bugs" in the "Customer Service" side of the Magic.

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!
