Carnival Magic Tips

If you get up early, order room service to tide you over until the lido or mdr opens.
We had good service in all the dining areas we ate in. We ate breakfast every morning in the Marketplace, had lunch either in the Marketplace or at the Deli and ate dinner in the formal dining room every night. Service was exceptional.
Go to the lido deck bar and look for Eko and Suanatara. Tip them well and they will pour heavy and toss drinks your way. Plus they are a great pair of guys!
The dining room experience was amazing. We tried a lot of dishes that we had never eaten such as shark.
The Seaday Brunch is fabulous!
Bring a $2 bill with you, if you have little children! Also, wait till the last 2 days to book your spa treatments!
Late evenings in the hot tubs, great to relax in.
We liked the variety of breakfast choices. I had the oatmeal and my husband likes that they would make his eggs over easy. The only thing missing was a hotter salsa. Need to have some fresh jalapeƱo peppers or at least a real home made salsa. So many choices that it's best to know what is
Arrive at the formal dining 30 minutes prior to opening, as the line gets long. Don't stress to much about "formal night". It is not too strict if your not wearing sequins. Keep your receipts for any purchases so you won't be surprised, because it is easy to forget.
Get tot he comedy club 30 minutes early to sit. Pre-buy excursions for the easiest time. Lacking a few key toiletries for purchase, so try not to forget them. Be sure to explore the whole Lido deck, there are several options! The serenity deck is SUPER comfy, but fills up quick!

Cruise Reviews

My husband and I now go on cruises to dance and on this cruise we just loved the opportunity to do our ballroom dancing every night. There was ample opportunity to dance before and after dinner and even after the main shows. We especially enjoyed dancing to the music of Sweet 2 and with the group Best Sellers. We judged the cruise higher than we might have because the dancing opportunities were so abundant. However, the noise in our room at 4 AM every morning woke us up. After we complained many times, we were told our room was under the kitchen and there was a shift change at 4 AM. The cooks were hard at work and there was nothing the cruise line could do about the noise. They did try to compensate us in other ways, but we came home tired and exhausted from lack of sleep. Do not book room 2405 unless noise does not bother you!

It was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On of the best cruises yet for my family. The service was great with amazing wait servers. All very friendly and nice. The prices were excellent. Lots of activities for my 11 kids. And we could drop the kids off at Camp Ocean which they say, 'Is the best kid service they ever had.' While they were having fun at Camp Ocean,we got to go to Cloud 9 Spa which had a great variety of awesome muss ashes.
