Review summary

We absolutely loved the Magic!  It's a beautiful ship with lots of amenities.  Our kids especially loved the water park and the sky course.  We also enjoyed the open air game area for foosball and putt putt golf.  The food on this ship was pretty good.  The service in the Southern Lights dining room was lacking, but we did get a chance to have breakfast in the Northern Lights where we experienced awesome service.  The Green Eggs and Ham breakfast was a lot of fun, and all of the food was really cute and also tasty.  Now the negative....we did have a smoker neighbor which made it hard to enjoy our balcony much at all.  We had a cove balcony which we absolutely loved, we just wish that we would've been able to actually use it.  We complained to guest services, but I guess they couldn't find the smoking culprit or either the culprit didn't care about the $250 fine.  The smoking never stopped during the whole 7 days and that was disappointing.  It didn't ruin our cruise though and all in all we had a blast!!!

Great except for the smoking on the balcony neighbors. Our steward Richmund was amazing and our cabin was clean and cozy! We would definitely choose this cabin again! We loved it!!!
