Sail Date: November 11, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Shiney and new; lovely decor but much too big.

Pros: The cabin location and balcony

Cons: The crowds

Recommends Carnival Magic? No.

Ship Quality
Extremely clean constantly. Just too many people.
Food and Dining
The options in the Market Place were great and the food was excellent for cafeteria food. The dining room food was not so great. Probably because of the large # of people to be served and the holding times for plates\, the entrees were not always hot and usually overcooked (fish dishes especially). \"On Your Time\" dining option was great. Did not check out the specialty restaurants.
Cabin / Stateroom
Best part of the cruise. Large\, conveniently arranged stateroom with lots of storage. Very clean. Location was great on 10th deck - of course cost more but worth it.
Service and Staff
EVERY member of the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Dining room wait staff exceptional. John Wayne\, one of the best I have ever had. Room steward\, Badu was so courteous and helpful.
