We sailed from Port Canaveral to Costa Maya, Belize, Mahogany Bay, and Cozumel.  The weather was beautiful and the seas were calm.  Our steward took great care of us and our waiters were amazing.  The staff was welcoming and friendly.  I'm always amazed by the level of service we receive.  In Costa Maya we explored Mayan ruins.  In Belize we went cave tubing and zip-lining.  We rode a speed boat and visited Passion Island in Cozumel and rented a beach cabana in Mahogany Bay.  Although, Cozumel was probably our favorite - we enjoyed all of our excursions.  The Magic is a beautiful ship with so much to do!  We played bingo and trivia - lost at bingo, but won a beautiful golden ship on a stick for trivia!  There were dance parties, great shows, and the piano bar.  The food in the main dining room was great and the service was perfect as always.  We ate dinner in the steak house for our anniversary and that was delicious!  We had one of the wider balconies towards the end of deck 7 - it was large enough for a lounge chair and two regular chairs and a table.  We enjoyed that very much.  Would highly recommend booking those cabins.  The only negatives we experienced were that there was a lot of smoke in the central staircase/elevator bank and around deck 5 near the casino and the lido buffet restaurant had trouble keeping up with food.  They just seemed to be running out of lots of things, the lines were long, and it took a while to get things refilled.  We really wanted to go see a comedy show - but the lines were so long all week that we would have had to stand in line for 30 minutes to maybe get a seat.  These were minor inconveniences that in no way ruined our fun!  Highly recommend this ship, these ports, and Carnival!
