We had a wonderful cruise on the Carnival Magic Feb 8-14, 2015. For a newer ship it seemed a little dated but the service was amazing. This was the best wait staff & room staff we have had on a cruise. I Gusti and Shashar in the dining room treated us like royalty. Aurora was the best with our room. From start to finish we had a great time. The shows on the main stage were mediocre, they really need to allow more than 2 singers. The comedians were top notch (we only attended family friendly shows). The ship was very clean and at every port they did maintenance on a different area to keep the ship looking nice. I would recommend this cruise to anyone.

Onboard Activities

The schedule for events seem to overlap. We wanted to take a dance class but they were all scheduled during main dining times.

Cabin / Stateroom

Seemed a little old for a newer ship. The bed was not the greatest but adequate.

Parking and traffic in and out of the pier area was very congested.

If you go to Progreso be sure to book an excursion. The pier is 6 miles long so it is a long walk to town.
