Carnival Magic

4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)

Sail date: October 07, 2021

Review summary

Easy boarding and leaving the ship. Food was average for a cruise as well as dining room service. Stage shows were very good. Plenty of seats available at pool, shows, bars. Even the elevators were easy to use. Halfmoon Cay was a BIG disappointment. Carnival should be ashamed of themselves and try spending a little $ to improve the facilities. I would NOT return to the island. It was comparable to being in a big tourist beach on labor day. Much to crowded and we were the only ship visiting at the time.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Cabin steward was excellent. The staff in the mdr was good, but we've had better. Not very attentive, or overly outgoing

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

Carnival needs to expand the beach area. It is WAY too small to handle the amount of people. Very crowded, no shade UNLESS you pay for a clamshell chair. No trees. Less then 2 miles of beach for 2000+ people!!! The bbq was awful. The burgers were charred on the outside and severely undercooked on the inside. Had to throw in the trash. Jerk chicken was too spicy for my wife to eat. Carnival needs to take a serious look at the food service on the island. The far end of the beach was ok. Tropical fish were easily visible in the water. I felt "steel drum music" would of been more appropriate then the stuff they were blasting. The tender ride to and from the ship was fine. Bring your beach towels from the ship.
