We have been cruising with different cruise lines. Overall, the food and service of the Carnival Magic are as expected of a cruise line.  However, the evening shows are poor, especially after paying top dollars for the Christmas week cruise. We had very high expectation but were very disappointed.  A couple of the shows were merely a one man talk-show and the only magic show was just a laugh - wasting time. They even cancel a show after the audiences were sitting in the theater for a while - not very professional. The two shifts of dinning are not good for us either. We were assigned a second shift and finish dinning at 9:30 p.m. every night - really too late for us going to bed with a full stomach.  Sorry, we will not cruise with Carnival again in the future.
