Good cruise with Carnival Magic

Sail Date: October 25, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We had a stormy start of the cruise as Oct 25 had a lot of rain & wind and the cruise could not leave PoG (Port of Galveston) on that day. The cruise departure out of Galveston was delayed to Oct 26 10 AM due to weather. I just wish that they could have informed us a little quicker, but that was just a minor issue due to weather delay.

The captain & the crew managed to make small changes to the itinerary which allowed us to visit all ports and do all the activities as planned. That was great. Crew was wonderful and very helpful. The entertainment was delightful. The ship's facilities were great and food was excellent. One small issue - the cabin was smaller than expected. I have been on other cruise lines where the balcony cabins were significantly bigger. I guess it is part of the design. Overall, a great cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom
Nice clean cabins all the time. The cabin felt a little smaller than on previous other cruise line cruises.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Customs & Immigration lines after Disembarkation in Galveston were very long. Port of Galveston needs to add more facilities to handle 3000+ guests arriving on a cruise ship.

Did not check this out as we did not have kids on board with us.

Food and Dining


Great food on Lido deck. However, evening service is somewhat curtailed (as most guests go to the sit down dinners in the other Dining Rooms).
