This was our 4th cruise on the Magic. It is starting to show its age, but the crew kept it clean and maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room and balcony was average size. Our room steward "Wan" kept it very clean. The only draw back was the balcony on deck 12 does not have a roof. When we had a shower a couple of days we could not use it.
