overbooked and miserable
Carnival Magic Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Review summaryCarnival fully booked this cruise. People EVERYWHERE. I could barely leave the room the entire time because of the population on that ship. I would wait in lines for minimum 30 minutes just to get something to eat. I was lucky to find places to sit. I didn't do much on board for fear of my safety because a fight broke out every day on board between passengers. One man even had a concussion. The only port I got off for a good time was the first one, Half Moon Cay. I got to swim in the ocean and enjoyed it for a short time. It was clean and waded in the water with my family. Getting back on the ship was awful. The line was so long and took even longer because it was water taxi'd [I think by the 6th or 7th water taxi I finally could get on one]. Couldn't eat at the port because it would take too long to get food and nowhere to sit. The other two ports were just as bad. Over populated, couldn't swim at any, and neither could anyone else. Everyone who was swimming could only stay in their tiny area, no moving around or anything. Same on the ship as well. The pools were so full that you could only sit/ stand and not move around. Honestly the worst experience I've had.

don't. Carnival allowed for a fully booked ship knowing it is too small for THAT many people.
