7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 10, 2014
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9208
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship was very nice.  The cabin was large and the balcony made it more enjoyable.  The waitstaff at dinner was great.  Only two minor problems: the room steward overcharged us for items from the mini-bar, and he refused to fix his mistake; and the shower drained backed up causing a mess.  The maintenance staff did get to the drain problem right away.  The entertainment was excellent.  The 7-mile beach break at Tiki Beach in Grand Cayman was ok, but the sail and snorkel trip that stopped in Magaritaville in Jamaica was outstanding.

Ship Tip

Don't wait in line at the Lido for the Mongolian Wok. It takes forever, but the food is good. Get to the lounge for the late night comedy act 20 minutes early--always standing room only.

Every cruise out of Galveston stops here. Been there many times.
