"This was our twelfth cruise on Carnival. We were on an 8-day Southern Caribbean itinerary during the week of July 20-28, 2019. Our ports were Half-moon Cay, Grand Turk, Aruba, Curacao. We left from Fort Lauderdale...."Read More

I was taking some time off of work , I like to take a cruise every now and again. But with what going on. Its crazy . This is a really fun ship for family but for going solo its not such a good idea they do not have a single supplements for people who are going solo I loved Guy's Burger Bar and the people were very nice the buffet food was the same could have been more of a verity ...

I was part of a group of 18 family members who choose the Magic for both its departure / return dates as well as itinerary. Let's just say, the family made the cruise memorable not Carnival. Yes Carnival staff work hard to make your cruise experience enjoyable.....and the Cabin Stewart was awesome. Conversely, there are many Carnival shortcomings. Being a group of 18 we have a difficult time ...

As a group of 12 family and friends who have been talking about cruising together for years, we finally got to do it last week on the Carnival Magic. All I can say that as a veteran of 23 cruises on all lines, except Disney, this had to be the best of the best!! Simon London is the cruise director..fun, visible, friendly, crazy without being over the top, inclusive, talented..warm...he made the ...

Husband , myself and another couple ( lifelong friends) flew to FLL 2 days prior to embarkation. We stayed in a Air B and B - two bedroom apartment about 10 minutes from the downtown Las Olas Blvd. area. In the past we have always stayed at FL Beach, so I was a bit skeptical about this. No need to worry- the place was wonderful! Clean and tidy in a quiet residential area . We were a ten minute ...

Premier cruise w/ fun perks & great casino . They had lots of the newer games. Our casino hosts kept us entertained with daily games & prizes as well as special gifts in our room, from from cookies, wine, Fanny pack etc, Also selected based on the specific port stops. It was my 1st time on the Magic. It is older looking & could use a refurb. The service was great from our aft end bartenders ...

We arrived in Fort Lauderdale the day prior to our cruise. Stayed at the Four Points Sheraton Cruise/Port which was a 5 minute drive from Port Evergaldes. For a small fee you could book a shuttle to your ship. They also offered a free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Arriving at Port Everglades was a smooth process though the port is under renovations. The shuttle dropped us and our ...

This was a 6 night cruise which sailed from Ft. Lauderdale to half moon cay, Grand Turk and Amber Cove. This was our first carnival cruise only sailing with Norwegian previously. To start the first views of the ship from the outside compared to the others at the port was somewhat disappointing. It was absolutely the worst appearing cruise ship out of the other 4. Large amounts of rust was noted ...

First and foremost let me say that Carnival has a automatic 18% tipping system built in that you can dispute at guest services but is very hard to do. Here is the issue I have with it. I may be traditional but in my book tips are earned for starters and they belong to the employee who earned them. The next problem I have with the Carnival tip program is that a large part of it goes into a fund to ...

It was my 50th Birthday cruise with my husband. The food was plentiful and very good. We did one specialty restaurant, the steakhouse, we got the surf and turf. It was good but not filling for my husband so we ended up at the buffet afterward. We ate in the dining room twice, nothing special, the dance with the servers was fun. The menu in the dining room was blah! however, it had enough variety ...

first of all lets get a couple of things set right.... If you are worried about how long it take to get on a ship maybe you shouldnt get on the ship cause you wont have a good time. The embarkation process was seemless, as in, we got to the port dropped off luggage and went through customs got on the ship. putting one foot in front of the other helped. We went down to Guy's Pig and Anchor which ...
