She looked completely rundown and neglected. Quite frankly, she looked like garbage. I have not been on the Magic in a little over a year but of 25 cruises, Magic by far was the worst ship I've ever been on. 


You’re speaking of the exterior? I’m assuming you didn’t get on the ship.

I have been on the Carnival Magic a total of 3 times, twice while she was brand new and sailed from Galveston. The most recent was September 14th, 2019 out of Fort Lauderdale and in no way is the ship Rundown or Neglected. Staff was constantly cleaning and taking care of her so she could shine as she should.

 

If the Ship was labeled "Garbage" then I don't think anyone would book her and she would probably sail with nobody hardly on her. But she sails at Full Capacity on many sailings. So far this ship is one of my favorites.

Thanks for another great review Greg.  It was fun this week following you and Sid as well 

 

I'd love you two to cruise together. That would be a hoot.

Great Review as always Greg. The Pride is our favorite because of the layout and the Serenity at the back. The Magic is our second only because the Serenity is at the front.

I just came off the last cruise and the ship is on a way better condition that people say it is. All ships have rust from the salt water.

Oh yeah, and some healthy fruit to the left 🙂  I really love your trip reports.  They really do engage the reader.  Thank you for your hard work.

It's because they went traitor and sold out to some non-Texan company. 😫

 

It had a happy ending. Turns out they were still open...just powerwashing the parking lot. So I got food and a free car wash.

Debarkation info

Guests on deck six have to wait THREE hours to get off from when disembarkation begins. That seems excessive.  Unless you have a later flight.

Or get a low tag number. They actually called deck 6 on the later end of that timeframe....10:25 with the delays they had.

I finally got to finish up your review today... I did follow along here and there while I was on the Encore... Nice job!... I know that you probably have a few future cruises lined up. What and when? And are you booked on the Mardi Gras yet? I just booked that one for Nov 28 2020...
