Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Oh my gosh! The food & choices were so delicious!!!! We really enjoyed brunch on sea days too! The filet mignon & eggs was wonderful! And the main dining room was always good at dinner each night. Our favorite was the lobster tails! My husband & teenage sons definitely got full order 5 tails each!!! If your cruise is 6 nights or more you get lobster one night of your cruise included no extra charge! 🦞🦞🦞

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We watched the shows & enjoyed them! Also we spent some time in the back of the ship & in the whirlpool! Honestly for me the main pool in the middle of the ship was always too crowded so we didn't use it once. We have a pool at home so this wasn't a big deal for us. We enjoy the water on the islands more. But you would think for that many people they would have larger pools to accommodate more!

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Every show we went to was really good! You can tell they rehearse & have talented people!

Children's Programs

Our teenagers used the club 02 some during the cruise. They really enjoyed it. And made some new friends.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our cabin steward went above & beyond for us! He kept ice in our cabin every day. Also kept our room clean & always had a smile! Our waiters & waitress for dinner each night were precious. I wish they could have came home with us! Lol. I didn't want to go back home to cooking & meal planning! Haha!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Carnival Magic is a beautiful ship! I can't say enough about the beauty of all the common areas & the atrium!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our balcony cabin was on deck 6. It was in the middle of the ship & was a quiet room. The only complaint I have about this room was because it was in the middle the deck below us deck 5 had an extended deck with a common area with sun chairs in the middle so when we sat in our deck we could see people laying out in the sun. This was a huge disappointment for us because we've never had that on any other balcony room we've had on other Carnival ships. Our cabin was 6274 so if you want privacy do not book this room. The people could like right at you too if your were talking on your balcony. 😔

Ports of call

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Our favorite island so far! Beautiful & clear water. The beach is so nice.

Grand Turk Island

5 out of 5
We enjoyed snorkeling! We saw alot of beautiful fish & a old cannon when we were snorkeling! 🐟🐠🌊🏝

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
We mostly just did some shopping on this island because of the reputation of Dominican Republic lately we didn't feel comfortable going on any excursions or eating there. We stayed close to the port & had no problems!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
It was a quick process & air conditioned!
