Absence truly made the heart fonder by cowboyduglas

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

The ONLY thing that disappointed us was that we had booked 2 cabins as part of our COVID cruise credit but that cruise was also cancelled. Because our daughter is in the military, she was unable to rebook and we lost any opportunity for the COVID cruise cancellation onboard credit for either cabin. TERRIBLY disappointed about that.

Great cruise experience. Looking forward to future opportunities with Carnival. by richardaweekley

Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Cruise and cabin were excellent. Bimini was a bit of a disappointment. Other than the beach there is no real reason to go there. Nassau is still trying to recover from COVID therefore the shopping was limited. People were pleasant and ship’s staff was excellent.

A great cruise. Loved the ports for the most part. I'm sure I would of loved Belize too if it hadn't been rainy. Boat was nice.

Nice trip by Sailor11

Ship: Carnival Magic

I was very disappointed in the false advertising of the onboard credit and cash back shown on while booking. This was my first cruise where I received no onboard credit even though the ad was deceiving

Boat was great, guesstimating about 50% capacity. Service was awesome onboard. Don't bother with Nassau unless you want to see a run down boarded up version of Tijuana. Half Moon Cay was beautiful with good snorkeling right there in the swimming area. by captvid1

Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I would and probably will take this cruise again. Stay on the boat in Nassau unless you have a specific outing you have scheduled or just want a cold Kalik while you're in the Bahamas. Half Moon Cay is beautiful and well worth the effort. Snorkeling was fun and we saw many fish.

Missed cruising but much has changed. by AllAboutLC

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Magic

Good to be back cruising. The food was not up to quality and took very long in the dining room. It was less activities on port days. Also the room hardly got serviced. The deck parties were very repetitive.

Better than expected it to be by jerry1995gmc

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

For the most part it was a good cruise. I did not like having someone at the buffet staring at you if you did not have a mask on. I do not feel if you are vaccinated that you should be required to wear a mask. That is one of the reasons most people get vaccinated. Going on a cruise and being told you have to put on a hot mask is not fun.

Okay by seftona

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

I was given wrong information about on board Credit from the person that booked my cruise. I had to get someone to send money. A/c in room could not be adjusted, from cold to hot we had to keep Balcony door open to be comfortable. Shower water temperature only stays on hot ,could not adjust to anything cooler Tv in room was about ,15 inches Small TV. Billed for 2 large water in room ,that we did not request.

Happy Cruising by hnewsh79

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Magic

Obviously things are different because of covid but it's still wonderful. We had sailed on her in Sep, and because things were so nice, we booked again. I will say though, cleaning and mask enforcing were more lax this time, and it was a much higher capacity. I said it last time, and I'll say it again. The deck crew, wearing masks and constantly wiping things down, in the heat; are the real MVP'S!! Don't forget to include them with your extra tips!

Horrible Cruise by Bellarose1389

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Carnival Magic / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Good morning I just recently returned from a Bahamas cruise MAGIC 08/12/2021 - 08/16/2021 BOOKING N67FG0 on the carnival magic and it was absolutely horrible I wanted to leave the ship. I was traveling with my service animal who was put a litter Box on deck 4 where I had absolutely no access to get to the litter Box due to the fact that I'm using a scooter and a wheelchair and there was a large drop to get down to the area where the litter Box was and to get backup that Drop to get back into the boat and I was not able to get to the litter Box causing severe stress on me and my dog. Not only that when we went in to go eat Our assigned table 406 in the Northern Lights was immediately changed and we were put in the corner where our dog was being stepped around and over by waiters and staff due to the fact that I did have a dog they did not want us anywhere into the main area where other people were eating which is discrimination. Even other guests on the ship were complaining that they were discriminating against my dog by putting him in the corner and actually told us they didn't mind if he came with sat at their tables this happened throughout the ship the guests were very appreciative of my dog whereas the dog was discriminated against by carnival cruise lines. We were sat by the kitchen and Waiter podium it was chaos. Even worse the cruise was in my dogs honor for his 5th Birthday. He was so stressed he was depressed and moping. I was in tears on multiple occasions. This was supposed to be a happy, relaxing time. If that wasn't bad enough when I received my fruit on the 1st night for dessert it actually had mold on it I have attached pictures so that you can see those.. On the 3rd day I ordered croissants for breakfast they sent me 4 that were actually burnt and so hard you could hear them cracking when you try to break them open I actually have a video of this happening happening. I will say that my staff for my room rodel was excellent as was Valentin the Maitre D in northern lights dining as well as Olga, Diana Luminita and Chef Petalati. Vanisha and Romana were also very polite from Guest Services. However the cruise was horrible for myself and my travel companion as my dog was completely stressed out the entire trip. I was literally unable to eat due to extreme stress while on board. I also ordered nearly $600 in items like drinks, champagne, wine ultimate getaway ect. I spent hours at guests services on multiple days trying to get the undelivered items and a large amount of time on the phone with them. The experience was not happy.

Food needs vast improvement and entertainment should be geared for most passengers but it seemed geared to older people.

Ports were amazing by coutybugg

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Magic

Food in buffet was lacking. Drinks were strong. The staff was excellent and very friendly. I will express concern about drugs on board as a few were smoking pot on the smoking deck, which is concerning...
