Magic is a wonderful ship,and  has many more amenities than the triumph . My only complaint has to do with the food. The lido buffet was not what I would call wonderful and is open for shorter periods of time and opens later for breakfast than we were used to on the triumph. We are early risers and had to wait a couple of hours to get some breakfast. Not a big deal for most folks, but we enjoy eating breakfast and watching the sun come up. The lunch and dinner selections seemed to be heavily italian, although they did have a few other things. This was the first cruise that I got bored with the meals. The mdr was great as usual. We went to the steakhouse one night and that was wonderful.  The wait staff throughout the ship was excellent as usual.

  If you go to roatan and belize, be sure to book excursions, While they are beautiful places with some great things to do, the ports are pretty lacking, so I wouldn't plan on hanging out at the port for the day. We had a hard time finding something to eat in roatan when we returned from our excursion. the only food we found was some really overpriced appetizers in a bar on the beach. Its possible we missed something, but was surprised that there were no restaurants.

Boss underwater scooter excursion was a blast.
Belize City, Belize
great site seeing, wasn't a fan of the port or having to be tendered into port
Cozumel, Mexico


If you get up early, order room service to tide you over until the lido or mdr opens.
