Review summary

Everything was amazing, from embarkation, to the food and drinks, to the activities and entertainment, to the ports, casino, room and disembarkation. I am currently planning my next cruise and might do the Magic again because I really enjoyed it.

Embarking at Fort Lauderdale was definitely an experience. My check-in time was from noon to 1230. I got there a little before noon but the line was ridiculously long. Although it was super long, it actually moved very fast.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The drinks were amazing. I got all my drinks from the Red Frog Pub on the 5th Floor. My first meal on the boat was of course Guy’s Burgers. You can never go wrong with that. I spent most of my time at the buffet and the Seafood Shack whose Buffalo Shrimp are addictive. I went there so much the lady who worked there knew me. I had lunch at the Italian restaurant. They had the free pasta buffet at lunch which was okay. I also ate at Guy’s Pig and Anchor which I can do without. I’m not saying it was terrible but I’m just not a BBQ person but wanted to try it for the sake of saying I did. The Prime Steakhouse was amazing. I had lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, an amazingly cooked 18oz ribeye steak with chimichurri sauce and a chocolate sphere dessert. The dessert was the only downfall to me, I just didn’t like it.

Onboard Activities

I enjoyed some of the activities from the ladies pamper party to the lip sync battle. I tried to do a lot.

Serenity is just that....a serene place to just relax and let your cares slip away.

Ship Quality

The ship was very clean as well as my room. The only problem I thought was the sewage smell at certain areas but it didn’t bother me or my fun!

Since Guys BBQ place is only open on sea days, make sure you get in line early because they were ridiculous.

Disembarkation was a breeze. I was off the ship and through customs in 30 minutes.
