Cruising in the Covid era was different , not in a really bad way , it was just different. Carnival requires a negative covid test 2 days before you sail , that was extremely stressful . There's a lot of decisions to make about pre buying internet cheers packages excursions etc.. before sailing having to wait until a couple of days before or gambling on a negative test is quite a is the biggest ...

We have had 7 cruises cancelled and frankly I thought this one would be also. I booked this cruise as I was excited about going to Bimini; what a letdown. They need to develop their tourism as there isn't anything to see or do there except go to the beach. It looked like a flat "ribbon of land" island that was mostly residential and the houses looked nice and new. We walked down to the Hilton ...

The service was brilliant, entertainment was good, ship was okay, but the destinations were subpar.

This was my 7th cruise on Carnival. Although the Carnival Magic was not a bad ship, the layout was strange compared to all the others I've been on and not to my liking; most of the hot tubs were cold, the ones on the Serenity deck were always full and this was on a cruise only 70% full. The main pool was small and seemed out of place. On a positive note, it had lots for kids to do and also had ...

Two diamond members here .great price was our reason for this cruise . we over all enjoyed it with the exception of rude people everywhere , especially when using the elevator. People would pack into the elevator before you could even get off. The ( i wanna be first crowd ruled on this ship) . Just amazed me that so many people will try to pack into an elevator with covid still being a problem ...

I’d like to start off by saying how impressed I was with this ship and the staff. Granted, they were sailing at around 50% capacity making it very spacious everywhere, but the crew were more helpful than any other main cruise lines I’ve been on. Boarding from parking to sitting at a bar with my first glass of champers took 1.5 hours (this included completing the muster drill and a quick spa ...

My wife and I selected this cruise for the price and to return to cruising even with COVID. We completed COVID testing at a CVS. Receiving our negative test, a sigh of relief...lets go cruising. Our cabin was on Lido Deck, interior. Boarding was very quick (from start to sitting waiting to board) was about 15 minutes. There were many protocols in place but none that affected our cruise. We took ...

I always enjoy going on Carnival Cruise Line. I've been crusing for years, but I was disappointed that we didn't go to Bimini. Captain said bad weather but it was only raining. Guests were very disappointed and they only gave us a $15.96 credit . What an insult! The captain's english language was poor , we couldn't understand him when he made announcements. Nassau is looking pretty ruff, but they ...

First time on the Magic, a beautiful, smaller ship and with the 60% capacity or so, you felt as if you almost had a private cruise. No waiting for elevators, and quick, efficient service in the main dining room. The room was only cleaned once a day, but that was fine. My wife and I love music and love to dance and we had our fill on the Magic. To start they had a fantastic dance band with a ...

Great to be back on a ship. Here are a few tips 1. The BBQ place has limited hours... and great food. Be sure to hit it. 2. On embarkation day the Italian place is open and free 3. There are small rooms with ironing boards and irons for free. My white shirt for formal night was wrinkled and I just asked the cabin steward where the launderette (sp?) place was. 4. On the private ...
