6 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 26, 2011
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Nice ship (new) with many things to do onboard. The food was hit and miss, some excellent and some not so good. The staff was courteous and helpful all the time. I rate them exccellent as well. The entertainment fell well short of our expectations. We basically had 2 decent shows even though they had technical difficulties but they depended too much on the guests for shows and no fireworks for New Year's! No fireworks? Com'on guys.

Well short of expectations. The daily stuff (golf, basket court, etc) was very good but the Show Theater, stand-up comedians and piano player were mediocre at best

Service and Staff

Great staff - friendly, always said hi and welcomed us. Very well behaved

Ship Quality

New ship (May 2011) I expected no less.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Even though it was an internal stateroom, the condition was excellent, which is what I expected from a new ship. But well serviced as well.

Pros: The ship

Cons: The entertainment

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!
