Review summary

We’ve done 3 before this one and overall the Majic was just okay. I was always looking for more activities to do. Staff was excellent.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Not the fault of the crew but they had a coast guard drill that delayed embarkation, otherwise it was organized well

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Same food as prior trips, but over all it was great.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
I did not think there was a much to do as on prior trips. The activities that I did and ones that I passed by as they were going on seemed to have a good crowd and people were enjoying them.

Spa

They do try to always sell you something, but the staff is very nice and do a great job.

Entertainment

These performers are really talented and do a really great job day after day.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff on the Majic were great. Everyone was helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship is designed pretty much the same as other Carnival ships and was maintained well. It does show age, but the crew try hard to keep things looking good.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Cabin and hallway outside smelled really musty. Not extremely happy that the ship was full so we could not move to another room.

Ship tip

The casino bar tenders are really good, if you are okay hanging out there, they are the best on the ship.

Ports of call

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
Stingray city was amazing. There is good shopping near the port area too.

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

4 out of 5
We did a private beach house. It was relaxing. We’ve done the beach right off the port and it gets crowded. Fat Tuesdays is also good too.

Belize City, Belize

2 out of 5
We did not do an excursion. I think if you want a great experience at this port, the best bet is to do an excursion. Otherwise, not much to do and they are pretty pushy to sell you something or something to do. It also has a pretty long tender ride.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
We did the Twister boat to Pasion Island. The ride is AMAZING. The island is relaxing. The food there is good and drinks are okay.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We had an excursion the last day before our flight and they did well organizing us getting off the ship to the excursion.
