Can anyone give real-life experiences with Carnival Magic water slides?
Howdy! We live close to Galveston, and decided to go back to Carnival after sailing with Royal Caribbean for several cruises in the past 9 years. We last enjoyed the Royal Family Suite on RC Voyager of the Seas, and our children had an amazing time with their water slide--perfect for smaller kids but fun for moms too.
Since RC Voyager of the Seas is no longer coming to Galveston, and the Mariner of the Seas does not have a water slide, we thought Disney Magic for the wow factor of it being Disney, but the cost! Holy cow--the cost for adjoining inside staterooms was almost as much as the Royal Family Suite on Voyager!
So Carnival Magic it is, especially since the first picture that pops up is the dual water slides when you visit the site (and adjoining balcony cabins were priced better than interior Disney). I was wondering if I could get some first hand experiences with how crowded, how decent the hours were, any troubles with unruly kids and inattentive staff, and if it's as fun as it looks.
