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

Had a Aft cabin, 7461, was disappointed that cabin was very small, and there was no sitting area as described on website about aft cabins. It was not made apparent that this corner aft was not like all other aft cabins, even though it cost just as much. The food was mediocre. The Lido marketplace food was sub par, and the only good food, was that in specialty restaurants that had to be purchased or the dining rooms food was acceptable.

This was our 10th cruise on Carnival and they seem to only get better and better. 2nd time on the Magic. The room was great. We had upgraded to a Balcony. Food was good in all locations we tried. Noticed that perhaps the serving size had been reduced which I was glad to see. We went to the Spa and took week passes to the Thermal Suites and Thalassotherapy Heated Pool. So worth the money for the both of us. We spent time in the Spa on two port days. On the last port my husband had me signed up for a Tip to Toe Treatment. Ladies 75 minutes of bliss. Eva (Phillipines) was phenomenal! My first massage and it will not be my last. Our wait staff in Southern Lights Table 506 were fantastic, qualified and very pleasant to be around all nights. They were constantly seeing to our needs and their suggestions on the menu were spot on. We love Carnival and compliment them on the new check in service. From terminal to lunch on the Lido deck was 1 and 1/2 hours. Fastest we have ever gotten on board without having to pay for expedited service.
