7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 22, 2015
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8271
Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was our annual family cruise. My daughter (19) was a little disappointed because there weren't a lot of young adults around her age. There were plenty of kids and tweens running around (i do mean running around). My husband and I enjoyed being able to do NOTHING. We've decided to see about an adult only cruise (if possible).

The ports were good with the exception of Montego Bay, Jamaica. Is was a little disheartening to see how the people lived and struggled. It really made us appreciate what we have.

Carnival could get a five star if they provide better food on the buffet. Sometimes the food was cold and/or tasteless. You should not have to dine in the dinning hall to get decent food.

I really want to say thanks to "Salavisa" and "Henry". They were always courteous and asked if we needed anything. Everyday they greeted us with a smile.

Cabin / Stateroom

This was our first balcony cabin and we are hooked. We enjoy being able to sit outside and look at the ocean and various wildlife. There's a calming feeling.

Ship Tip

For example: Go to the lido deck bar and look for Eko and Suanatara. Tip them well and they will pour heavy and toss drinks your way. Plus they are a great pair of guys!
