Too Many Extra Costs

Sail Date: November 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was wonderfull\, with the majority of public areas fore and aft or on lower decks. this left the prime comfort areas for cabins\, so you should sleep well. It is a vacation after all... rest is important

Pros: The dive in theater\, and the sports deck are first class

Cons: Felt like I was constantly be sold upgrades

Recommends Carnival Magic? Yes!

Ship Quality
I can not criticize the ship at all. Wonderful ship\, beautifuly laid out.
Food and Dining
For breakfast in the free style dining hall\, they needed more omalette bars. the lines every morning were crazy\, but worth the late.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room\, and when we go on our next cruise\, I would want the same room again\, why mess with perfection
Service and Staff
From our room stewart to the dining wait staff\, everyone made it a point to know your name\, and treat you like you were the only guest. Carnival should take pride in their staff.
Too much of the cruise seemed to focus on Booze and Shopping. Enjoyed the comedy\, especially the family friendly shows we watched with our teen age kids. Wanted more family friendly entertainment though.
Children's Programs
The programs may be better when there are lots of kids aboard\, but with only about 100 kids\, they just could not get enough interest to make it interesting to my kids.
