I have cruised on at least 6 different cruise lines, and decided to try Carnival Magic. Never again. I did not receive one good meal.   My special diet meant that I had to wait for my meals over 1.5 -2.5 hours. The waiting meant that  either my party had to wail also, or they received their food and finished eating it long before my food arrived.  I spent alot of time waiting  in the Dining room. After finally coming to the attention of the head person of the dining room, the food  was still not really edible.  I sent most of the food back.  There was also a horrible accident on board the ship.  One of the large signs on the sports square on the outside deck of the ship fell and shattered over my head.  The sign was at least 4'x6' in size and made of very thick plexiglass.  It shattered, Knocking my hat off with in 12 inches of my body.   What did they do? after 2 days  they sent to my room a  $7 bottle of sparkling water.  Plus, Carnival Cruise let the teenagers on board take over the ship.  They were running up and down in hallways,  lying on the floors in front of the elevators, and pushing all the buttons on all the elevators.  Bullying the younger children in the Childs Camp area.  My grandson did not want to go because of them.  He was in the 12- 14 year olds,  the teen that were causing the problems  were in the older teens group.

Ship Tip

Everyone ate in the dining rooms because the buffet was terrible food, and very few choices. the Lines to eat in the dining rooms was very long, and waited forever. spent a lot of time waiting for food
