Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Great ship with lots of room and very clean.

Pros: Food and Activities

Cons: High Gratuities on Drinks and Smoking

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!

Ship Quality
I would say excellent but the smoking areas carried way too far, which was irritating. I suggest requiring the doors to be closed at the casino and make smoking areas be at the very top of the boat so no one is disturbed. Ideally, if smoking were not permitted it would not only make it more pleasant but also extend the life of the smoking areas on the boat as the chemicals from the cigarettes destroy the building materials.
Food and Dining
The food was excellent! It would have been nice of the soft drink prices were a little better.
Cabin / Stateroom
It was a maze at the entrance with the room door, closet door and bathroom all right in one place. Other than that, can't complain.
Service and Staff
The staff were entertaining and fun.
Had a lot of fun! Some of the outdoor exercise equipment is useless, however.
