Review summary

Overall Magic is a nice ship! Staff extremely nice and helpful! Pay the extra for the pay restaurants!

Seemed like a lot of people but really did move quickly! Arrived at 11;00 and was in room by 12 noon and that was only because their was a delay for the last passengers getting off . Very smooth!

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Steak house and Italian well worth the money! MDR seemed below average due to choices and service a little slow. Sugar free deserts were not up to par like in past . Buffet just ok at dinner . Lunch buffet is when they have the whole cakes out on display and they are very good! Not sure why they do not have them at dinner time… So if you want to get a slice and put it in your refrigerator in your room for dinner that is always an option.
