Review summary

I have to give it up to the crew of this ship. For my first cruise my expectations were pretty high just because of the feedback from friends and such and the Carnival Magic crew exceeded everything. Such a great time from start to finish! Baby Jane was amazing and Leigh was the tip of the sword. Great time!

Super Easy and everyone was really nice and accommodating.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Everything was perfect however I wish the buffet was open more and longer. They were only open and had food available during eating times like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Would have been nice to get a quick snack through the buffet and not have to get a full meal at another place of the ship.

Onboard Activities

Comedy club a 10! Cruise director Leigh! A 10! Such a great job done by all!

Tides Pool

Need more music!!! It gets a little quiet and stuffy back there. A dj or even some music over the speakers would be nice.

stage shows were great. I wish they would have had a different show rather than just singing and dancing all the time. Something a little more Cirque du Soleil type would have been great.

Spotlight Lounge

Baby Jane and everyone involved was fantastic! We spent every night we could in the Spotlight Lounge and had a blast!!!

Cabin / Stateroom

A little small but that's to be expected on an inside cabin. Cabin steward William was amazing! We loved him.

Ship tip

Get to a pool deck chair fast! The Magic is a fantastic ship and would go any day of the year!
