Carnival Magic is a Dream-class cruise ship, and is one of the latest of the Carnival Cruise Line ships to enter the fleet

Orlando

Carnival Magic 2018 You can click the above post to read our pre-cruise and cruise trip. We were heading to Orlando as soon as we disembarked our cruise ship. Day 11, Orlando(cont.) We had reserved a shuttle from the cruise terminal to the Orlando Airport since that’s where everything seemed to run to. We used Cortans Shuttle Service which was $80 for the 4 of...

Carnival Magic 2018

Pre-cruise planning We booked this cruise in January 2017. I emailed my PVP at Carnival and told her what I wanted and we booked it. I always book through her because she lets me know of cabins that aren’t on the Carnival website. She knows the type of cabins we like and helps me get the best one. As soon as we booked it, I went ahead and started watching for...

Belize

Belize is one city that I wasn’t excited about visiting because of all of the bad things I had heard on other cruise websites about how dangerous it was, how bad it was, etc etc. I am the type of person who doesn’t let others opinions influence mine and 99% of the time I am glad of that. This is one of those times. We were scheduled to be in port from 8a...

Cozumel

Cozumel was one port that I was excited about going to. We had reservations for Mr. Sancho’s that we made months prior to our cruise. I made reservations directly through Mr. Sancho’s for a $20 deposit with $165 due when we arrived for a total of $185.00 USD ($mex 3,677.12 pesos). This was for the all inclusive day pass which is all you can eat and drink...

Isla Roatan, Honduras

We arrived in Roatan at 9am and were in port until 6pm (7a-4p local time). I hate being in ports in different time zones. It makes it harder to keep up with time. Once we disembarked the ship, we found our way through the cruise terminal. It was pretty empty around where we were going which was great. We had arranged a private tour through Rony’s. Rony’s...

Costa Maya, Mexico

We arrived at Costa Maya, Mexico and disembarked around noon. As soon as we disembarked, we walked the long pier into the cruise terminal. The cruise terminal was packed once we got to the end of the pier. Everyone was going here and going there. A lot of people had Carnival sponsored excursions so I think that’s what was bottle necking everything. Once we got...

Cocoa Beach, Florida

Arrival Our flight was very smooth from RDU to MCO. We arrived in Orlando at 7:05am and deplaned. The flight was great as always. I love flying on Southwest. I had an early morning breakfast of 2 packs of peanuts and a Dr. Pepper. We got our luggage and went searching for the rental cars. Finally I found National Rental Car. Since I am an Emerald Club Member, I...

Raleigh, North Carolina

For us, Raleigh is home base. Raleigh is a short 2 hour drive from our house. I drive between Raleigh and Chapel Hill so often that I am used to the drive and it’s a quick hop down 86. I lived in Raleigh for a while so I am familiar with the city and I just love the Triangle. We always fly out of Raleigh-Durham International because it’s so much cheaper...
