Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 22, 2016
Ship: Carnival Magic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 2279
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

We were in Cabin 2279 which has an exhaust fan outlet high above the cove exterior hull and blows down across the hull and into the balcony.  Given the raw sewerage stench it probably vents the waste treatment area.  We smelled sewer gas all seven days, one day overpowering, on two of those days the smell of epoxy paint curing overpowered the sewer gas smell. Complaints to the customer service desk did nothing to stop it but we did receive a plate of chocolate dipped strawberries and a $65pp credit.  What an insult!!   We could not use our balcony for the smell.  We paid a premium for basically an ocean view cabin.  Other than that the food was great, excursions great, service great.  DO NOT RESERVE THIS CABIN!!!
