7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 01, 2012
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Carnival MAGIC cabin 9330 was just below where they stacked chairs at night. Noise was terrible. This ship is just a smaller Carnival ship with more cabins and more people. Lines for food were long and slow. Menus listed on Carnival website do not reflect what was offered on onboard, maybe they ran out of things like rack of lamb and cornish game hens and many more items. We strongly recommend against booking anyone on Carnival MAGIC unless they like to stand in line and be with thousands of others all wandering about.

Grandchild age 2.5 years loved first experiece and it went downhill after that where he did not want any part of it. Something must have happened and we have not idea what that was.
