This was our first cruise and we loved it. The staff in EVERY area took care of us with a smile. There was always something to do from dance parties, trivia, Piano bar, comedy, big production shows or just relax in the sun. We have already booked our next cruise.

Still sailing as I write this. I’ve cruised Carnival 16 times. Different ships. This has been the worst sailing. Everything is a line. Nothing is easy to get or do. If you want breakfast, you better bring someone else with you and strategize getting food. There is no way you can get an omelette then get sides. You can’t juice or ice without a line. Not just small lines long lines to get ice, ice cream drinks pizza EVERY THING!!! The ship is old rusty and ready for dry dock! Sewer smell nightly in the bathroom, internet overpriced and garbage. I swear I’m trying to make the best of this sailing but it’s honestly the worst!! Ratchet is understatement. Back to Royal.

It was my first cruise had a good time. To much selling going on and counted as an event. Food was excellent. Service was amazing. The director needed to speak clearly and slower. His thoughts were not organized as he made announcements that you barely could hear. His meetings were about selling excursions but had no question and answer time. So people could be prepared. Guest services wasn’t very knowledgeable. The loading and leaving the ship was a mess. They need a better system. Comedy show trivia towel folding dancing music lot of fun. Nyoman are cabin steward was amazing. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Casino was good. For excursion no your times before booking so your not rushed

Our "vacation" on the Carnival Magic was among the worst experiences of my life. We got the drink package and rather than enjoying myself, I felt under attack for the entire cruise.

Cabins are good, crew member and service from them is excellent, the ship is clean ..they do a good job… if you cruise in Royal Caribbean before and this is your first Carnival you are downgrading..do not expect same food or buffet you find in Royal Caribbean.. not even the pizza is better ..Carnival hide the bacon …I know bacon is expensive now but please!!!! If you like bacon be prepare to ask for it …Be prepare for a big line everywhere….so if you don’t like lines please schedule your self…the theatre…almost no shows… inn8 days I only see a show that by the way was very good ( magi’s show ) …and no inside movies…movies are all outside…..I take in consideration that is an older ship….i will give Carnival a second chance in a newer cruise in the future …..the places we visit were beautiful and the excursions were organized and everything went smoothly….i have to give 5 Stars to Guys Pit BBQ and Guys Burgers….the food was amazing….and is included at no extra charge but be early otherwise the line gets crazy …..
