It was my 1st time onboard the Magic. I really liked the ship. The service at Red Frog Bar and other was poor. I was surprised. Less waiter going around the decks to order drinks ( not fun when you're in a section far from a bar). Loved our Cruise Director MarQ ( who's on vacation right now ! ). Great food during dinner time. I was never able to go have dinner at the Steakhouse because it was fill house every night. You can put yourself on a waitlist if you want.. in case someone cancel.

Second time on the Magic! One of my favorite ships, this time we had a balcony on the 9th floor. It was a nice area, close by to everything. Room steward “SAW” was awesome. MarQ was out CD he was a hoot. Had a blast! I would not recommend the PIG & ANCHOR BBQ or the Pasta Place...

Awesome 1st Cruise!

I have nothing to compare it to as this was my first cruise, but one thing I know is both my daughter & I have decided we will try to make it a yearly occurrence. We both had a blast! The only way I could have been bored was if I chose not to participate in anything~which I didn't choose to do. lol

Excellent ship! Great service all the way around. Excellent food and AWESOME entertainment! I highly recommend this ship. It's a bigger boat but it doesn't seem crowded because of the way it is set up.

Excellent choice for a honeymoon

Everything you need is included in the price! You don't need to rent vehicles to travel to different places, your room travels with you as well as any restaurant you could ever want! The diversity of the food is amazing and would be tough to even get close to getting sick of. I would highly recommend cruises, namely THIS CRUISE, for any weeklong vacation. As a side note, the lack of Cell reception forced us to relax and forget about work and everything we left back home.

Great Cruise But

Loved the size of the Magic - easy to get around. The buffett had something for everybody, GUY's burgers delicious as were the omelets. The main dining room menu had different entrees every night . The Carnival app was very useful for keeping up with friends and knowing what activities and it was only $5 for the week for the chat feature.

This was our 13th cruise. My parents were also on this cruise. They are in their 80s. So we didn’t do much as far as excursions. Just relaxed and enjoy yourself. Remember, a cruise is what you make of it.

This was our 3rd cruise and we had a blast. Carnival Magic is a beautiful ship and like I always say, I never feel the crowd that’s on board. Never had long lines, or anything. Really enjoyed Guys Burgers like always. We stayed in a balcony room on the Lido and it really our preferred location. Quick access to everything but still quiet. We had great service at dinner and our room steward. Would definitely stay on this ship again!
