Amazing yet frustrating by familyvaca51463

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Overall, we loved this cruise. We had 3 balcony cabins for 7 passengers. The negatives: The halls were obnoxiously loud at night. Young kids out until 2am with no parents around running and yelling in halls. (That has seemingly become a new normal on all of our cruises) Large groups of passengers seemed to take over clubs and shows making it at times uncomfortable and irritating. At times some staff seemed slightly rude, which was rather shocking. Positives: The ship is beautiful and laid out well so lines typically aren't an issue. Decks are spread out so you don't feel like sardines. The sea days are the best! 8 night cruising somehow is so much better than 7!

Disappointed Cruise! by limmyster

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

I personally would not recommend this ship for the following reasons: Long lines for pretty much everything from the drinks (the flow of the drinks/soft serve were so slow hence the long lines to guys burgers. Also the food has made a turn for the bad. Doesn't taste as excellent as it used to. Excursions were so expensive and not too exciting looking. The boat was so rocky so if you battle motion sickness this is not the boat for you. Entertainment was to me very boring. Lines for customer service were always long. Didn't like how I wanted to cancel an art auction order and the guest services couldn't do it for me. The only thing was the service for the housekeeping and dining room service did not change and stayed the same which was excellent but even there they seemed so short staffed or worked so hard they barely had time to even take the time to get to know their guests. To me this was a fail and this means a lot from someone who is a HUGE advocate for cruising.

Great Trip Through the Bermuda Triangle! by mcsoe141

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

I always wanted to visit Florida and decided on the Carnival Magic because we love that Dream Class Ship. Overall, our cruise was great! The two crew members I mentioned prior will always be part of our vacation memories and we hope to see them on a another cruise sometime in the future!

Absolutely fabulous in every way! by jshenaut

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was my first cruise ever (and I'm 60!) and I can't say enough about it. Truly was an awesome experience in every way. Absolutely fabulous! The only detraction was the drink package limitations and the slowness in getting drinks at some of the bars. I was the only adult in our cabin and for the $400 some price tag, I would have liked to have been able to use my 14 drink per day limit on others, otherwise the package isn't worth it. Since we disembarked on three days - there were really only two full days and four evenings to use the drink package. There's no (safe) way I would go through 14 drinks in just an evening (especially if drinking also during the day), so that was not an economical package. I'd like to see something more flexible and geared toward the guest rather than Carnival.

Simon London was the best Cruise Director we've ever had. The Fun Squad was fantastic and our overall experience was outstanding. We would do this cruise again. Thank YOU!

Amazing Ports! by knixon39

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Overall, we love a cruise. We will consider a different cruise line in the future due to this poor experience. I know that Carnival does not want anyone to have this type of experience which is why we were really surprised. Hope it will improve and maybe we will try Carnival again in the future.

Amazing 1st cruise!!! by DenSmith

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

This was our first cruise, 25th Anniversary, and I LOVED IT!! I also found out that Carnival supports St Jude Hospital, super awesome. I bought one of the t-shirts and had more than 20 people, even the captain, sign it for my 5 yr old great niece Olivia who is currently undergoing treatment at St Jude for stage 4 Neuroblastoma. When she is allowed to have it I will be sure to send a picture. Thank you Carnival!!!

Too short and a lot of fun! by mtmoore4

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Carnival is a good line. I'll do it again maybe not Eastern but either Southern or Hawaii to change things up. The Ships crew is excellent and the dinners were great. I was not impressed with Guy's burger joint. Tried it the first day I was on the boat and the burger was very dry. The taco / burrito bar was really good.
