Loved the ports, the cruise director MarQ and 99.9% of the staff that we encountered was great.

Fun cruise and glad I cruise Carnival as I had shied away from them for years due to bad experience on a 4 day cruise a number of years earlier. Ship was great. Steakhouse was descent but pricy. Will not do that again if we sail the magic again. The Italian specialty restaurant was great and only $10/person. Loved that. They even came and sang to us at the table. Our cabin was a balcony and was fine. Had bigger rooms and bigger balconies on other ships. The bathroom was small as is normal, with the shower was glass encased instead of a shower curtain. Enough space for two people though. Good entertainment and bars were fun. Also brought back a cup from the Frog bar.

Fantastic cruise!

I highly recommend staying in a suite if you can afford it. They are located in the middle of ship and you have easy access to all. If you cruise on Carnival you should check out the military gathering they have. I personally didn't serve, but it was a great way to see and say thank the ones who did. Thank you Carnival for this very special event.

Great cruise

Dec 4th, 2018

I had a great time but I found Magic layout to be a bit confusing. I really didn't like the layout of that boat. I am not in no hurry to go back on the Magic.

Destinations were phenomenal but staff was lacking

Dec 4th, 2018

Embarkation was terrible, restaurants opened and closed at their leisure despite what hors the shop posted they were open. Martin dunning room food was awuful, guys burger joint and pig and anchor were by far the best food offered on the cruise ship, the movie nights on lido deck were great but get there early or you'll have to stand to watch the movie, hot tubs are more warm than hot, pools are small and very shallow and cold, the sunburst drink at the bar was phenomenal, comedy club was hit or miss, after this cruise I would prefer a smaller ship like fascination with less people and better staff.

Very nice cruise ship!

Dec 4th, 2018

We were very well served by the wait safe in the dinner room by Nelson, Wiguna, Suastama, and I made. Our room was kept well nicely by Piyada. Although we didn't like the ports too much because of needing to buy excursions to get to beaches, etc., we really enjoyed the ship with it's many amenities. In the future we may take a cruse but skip the masses getting on and of by going smaller or flying to an island.

Had a great time on this trip, my wife and I were celebrating our honeymoon. The punchliner comedy club is a must see very funny, there are multiple shows every night , they have kid friendly and adult only ones. The food is amazing so many options at every meal and there is always something to eat. The staff is great and very respectful. Our dinner staff s names were Zaldy, Arnawa, and Werdi if you have a way to request them I would.
