Carnival cruise on the Magic April - 20, 2016

Sail Date: April 23, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Overall, this cruise was outstanding.  We have been on a dozen or so cruises on various cruise lines.  We visited some nice ports but only had a limited amount of time in each port.  This was a challenge to be back on ship earlier than 6 pm because we chose early dining.


We really appreciate the extra efforts of our cabin steward who always allowed us privacy and observed our time away out of our cabin to clean and change linens.


We especially want to extend our appreciation of our dining service at dinner every evening.  Our cruise satisfaction was mostly attributed to our outstanding dining experiences in Northern Lights.  Please convey our thanks to Nyoman Trisna from Bali, Indonesia.  He made us feel so special and we felt like royalty as he accommodated our every need and request.  He was so pleasant and genuinely wanted to make this cruise a special memory.  We were fortunate he was part of our evening dining team.

Cabin / Stateroom
We always chose either a balcony or ocean suite. Our suite was very spacious and we spent many hours on our large balcony. We had extra closets and drawers we did not use.
Children's Programs Not applicable, no children in our group.
Service and Staff
The service staff works so hard and they anticipated our every need. We never had to ask for anything. Very good in observing our routine and did not disrupt our in room privacy.
Food and Dining
The highlight was our evening dinner experience. Our server, Nyoman Trisna from Bali, Indonesia was outstanding. He served our every request with enthusiasm and he enjoys working with Carnival. Please convey our thanks to Mr. Trisna for making this such a wonderful experience.
Port Canaveral, Florida A long distance from airports. Try to arrange more economical transfers to and from airport to port.
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic Residents are nice - they really want to cater to Carnival passengers.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Please get driver and tour this Island. Beautiful views.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Like old downtown San Juan. Many historical landmarks.
Grand Turk Island
Loved this stop. We spent the entire time at Margaritaville, walking distance from ship terminal. Enjoyed spending time in fresh water pool.


Upgrade your cabin to Ocean Suite to get priority boarding and luxury cabin accommodations. Also, room service is great, love their BLT's.
