7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 04, 2014
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 11272
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 4 years ago

Boat was very nice and clean. We had a balcony room. It was very lovely. The food was fine- I did like all of the choices. I didn't think the staff was very friendly. This was our fourth cruise on Carnival and have always thought the staff was great, but not this time. They just didn't seem as friendly or seem to really care about our experience.

Gets a little noisy during the day, but other than that the location is great.

Loved it here. This was probably our favorite port. The beach by the ship is awesome.

Had to be on a small boat for a lot of time to go onto the mainland. It was very rough.
