    We have been on 2 other cruises prior to this but this doesn't even come close to either of those. The overall planning is a total disaster and the cruise director should be tossed overboard. more

    Carnival has managed to make a large ship feel small and a new ship feel old -- no small feat! The ship is poorly laid out and is not big enough for the 4500 passengers we traveled with. more

    Overall experience was OK., but we will probably not take another Carnival Cruise is this is representative of the Cruise line. Our group consisted of husband and wife and our three young more

    The Carnival Magic is a beautiful ship overall. What we missed on this ship as compared to other ships we have sailed on is a lack of activities during the day. While it's true that many more
