Review summary

This was a wonderful First Cruise back. The Magic is a beautiful ship. I would sail on her again. Disembarking in Nassau was a total nightmare but they made up for it at Halfmoon Cay. The Buffet can use some work same as room service but other than that no complaints.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
We were one of the first people on board. The entire team made it effortless. Have all of your documents together and it's a breeze.

It was beautiful and decorated for Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ

Pizzeria

4 out of 5

The quality of the pizza has gone down it's more like pizza bread. Only had it once.

Grand Buffet

2 out of 5

Now this is where the food quality really have failed us. I try not to complain but the buffet food was not good. There was even one point when we were asking for ketchup and the workers said they were out. Only for us to find it all over the ship else where. The Deli truly save us.

I went here for Lunch on a Port Day and it was really nice the food was good. But I think I will have to do it for dinner to get the true experience

Prime Steakhouse

5 out of 5

The Steak House was amazing the entire experience was wonderful. My steak was cooked to perfection. And my sister truly enjoyed her steak as well. We went there on the first night and loved the free bottle of wine.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
They only had Karaoke on the first night and 3rd Night and most of the activities were scheduled at the same time. Maybe because they were trying to social distance.

Traveler Photos

Sitting in the terminal The Rib eye was seasoned to perfection! The onion soup was delicious Red Frog Pub Sea Side Theater I was in Stateroom 10227 it was a nice room in a great location right on the Lido Deck. The TV didn't work well and the fridge kept nothing cold. I even pulled it out and leave the cabinet opened that didn't work. Other than that it was nice. Amazing Great Tour My favorite place Sister's Trip 2021
