Carnival Magic was generally a very good cruising experience. We got hold of a stateroom with balcony\, while for the similar price\, you could only get an inner stateroom in some other more pricey cruise liners. The crew and staff on the ship were very friendly. They tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. It was worry-free trip as we didn't need to worry about accommodation\, dinning and any past-time activities. BTW\, the foods at the formal dinners were really great.

The only negative about this particular ship is that to accommodate almost 4000 passengers\, the public area has to be compressed. For example upper deck open areas and main deck outer spaces are always crowed. There seemed never enough deck chairs. Even the Serenity Lounge (18+ only area) was always filled with people and noisy\, not as it was supposed to be (quiet and relaxed).

Overall\, it was an all inclusive trip and we were totally refreshed.Highly recommended to anyone looking for a worry-free holiday.
