This was my18th Carnival cruise, second on the Magic. Embarkation was easy.Left on time. The overall cruise was typical. The buffet food is always the same. I was disappointed that they have not yet added the new Guy's hamburger station.The main dining room was good. Using the flexible dining time was nice. The food selection was average, most meals were very good. The only complaint on dining was 2 very loud, rude diners using very inappropriate language in a family setting. The waiters heard them but said nothing. One night the assistant took my left over spoon and gave it to another member of our party to use.
The casino was large, good variety of slot machines. They were not generous,of course. The main showroom productions were pretty good. However, the magic show was big on production and slight on magic. The later evening comedians ranged from so-so to hilarious. The shopping and excursion seminars never change, nor the watch and jewelry "sales". The candy store was fantastic.
The staff was nice. Room attendants efficient.

Definitely spent the money to use the Spa 9 facilities. It is limited to about 50 people and the cost was $125 (it may vary per cruise). Several steam rooms, large whirlpool, and internally heated tiled reclining lounges. Very relaxing.
