Great, great honeymoon

Sail Date: September 09, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

One of the newer and biggest ships in the Carnival fleet. Crew and service staff were amazing. The ship itself was practically brand new. Flat screen in room, huge flat screen at main pool, nice dining areas with great views, great shower, great a/c. Probably will go for a bigger room next time but that was a decision we made to minimize cost. Great ship.

Make SURE to do research on the shore excursions, you'll thank yourself later.

Pros: On board to do's, numerous beaches and shore excursions

Cons: I'd have to make something up

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship layout was easy to learn, only took two days to figure out. Elevators were busy at times but if you wanted to get around at off times, no problems. Cleaning crews were amazing. We walked up on them dusting and sweeping in areas where absolutely noone was. Ship was immaculate.
Food and Dining
Buffets were still buffets. High qulaity but after 3000 people rifle through the line, it gets a bit messy. The fine dining was outstanding, make sure to have your wait crew give you recommendations.
Cabin / Stateroom
We opted for a smaller room thought we wouldnt be in there very much. But you will eventually tire out. AC and shower bathroom were great worked very well. Housekeeping was amazing coming twice / day.
Service and Staff
People in service roles were great. Others have their non face time roles for a reason. Don't expect rosiness from engineers or janitors but service folks are amazing. Also, not everyone on board speaks english. Actually only about 10% of the crew is English first language
Shows were pretty good. Game shows and comedy shows (including stand up) were jaw dropping funny. (Make sure to see 18+ comedy nights, it was ruthless). The trivia shows and karaoke were just ok
