Fantastic experience!

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

My wife has been on the Carnival Magic before and told me how wonderful the ship was and how much fun she had on the cruise so my expectations were set pretty high.  The ship was in wonderful condition and our balcony room on the Spa level was just delightful.  We spent way too much money in the Spa but we both really enjoyed the massages, the facials (my first ever) and even the two accupuncture sessions.  The service was great and the food was also very good. If you want to avoid the temptations of the buffet, you can get breakfast in the dining room and can also enjoy lunch in the Italian restaurant for no extra charge.  We had dinner one evening at the Steak restaurant and it was very, very good.  We will be back!

Adequate room and being in the middle of the ship and on the spa level, it was generally quiet and enjoyable.


If you purchase jewelry onboard with a value of over $800 you will have to be escorted to a customs officer when you return to port. The short delay waiting for the escort is more than made up with the time saved when you are taken to the front of the customs line!! Just forewarn us.
