Review summary

I truly enjoyed myself. I think because the Magic is a smaller ship than the others I've been on it was not as impressive. The main difference between Disney and Carnival or NCL is the great attention to customer service.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very streamlined. Arrive at your embarkation time and it's a less then 30 min wait.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I was disappointed by the food. Most of the reviews I read said the food was exceptional and it was a let down. It was just ok. I've found the food on the Carnival ships to be much better. The exception was Palo ($). The food there was some of the best ever.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The adult pool is fresh water. Nice touch. Not to many things to do on deck for adults. Pool, slide, mostly just sunbathing.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The entertainment did not disappoint. It was Broadway caliber. Most of the adult only shows are toned down. So nothing to raunchy or vulgar.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone, everywhere, is concerned about your satisfaction.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was always spotless. You never find stray plates or cups.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Plenty of space and storage. Extra clean. Split bathroom might be uncomfortable for larger people.

Ship tip

If you didn't get a chance to book a specific activity or event when you checked in online go straight to guest services they can help you sign up.

Disembarkation

Very quick and well organized. The only hitch is the speed of customs.
