Just did the Dream and I'm debating a cruise on the Carnival Magic since it sails out of Galveston (no airfare for me) and it sails during the summer, unlike the Disney Magic. I think my kids would love that water works area, that was probably my one complaint on the Dream. But they also loved the kids clubs, and I know Carnival's won't be as good as Disney's.

Don't be so sure about the kids clubs. My boys loved them on Carnival.

Our daughter loves both DCL and CCL clubs. Carnival is doing things right

I am thinking about doing the Carnival Magic since it ports out of Galveston in the Summer. I know my kids would love the water park, thanks for the review!

We were on the Carnival Magic from May 28-June 3 and REALLY loved it.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED the hot tubs outside around the promenade deck. It was nice to not have to cram in with a million other people in one or two hot tubs on the pool decks.

I loved that they had WAY more activities during the day for adults.

The younger kids must have been kept busy somewhere, because I didn't see them running around at all....except in places they should be, like the pools....and no playing in the elevators, either.

I loved that they have different onboard shops, along with the cruise line shop. There have been times on Disney when we've needed something, like a pair of shorts, and Disney just really doesn't have anything unless it has Mickey or Minnie on it....which is great for a souvenir, but not if you really just want a regular pair of shorts.

Loved the deli with fresh, made to order hot or cold sandwiches. And the Indian food. And the Wok. And the pastry shop, and sushi.

It was clean, well-maintained, and everyone who worked onboard was very friendly.

No complaints at all, and the cost was less than the Disney Fantasy we'd had planned for this week, plus the airfare to Houston was less than to Florida.
Granted, no Castaway Cay, but Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel....especially now that Cozumel has the new piers and terminals...were awesome ports.

Any of you who have sailed on the Carnical Magic have pictures you wouldn't mind sharing? Maybe a Flickr or Photobucket link so you don't have to post a bunch of Carnival pics here.

Don't you think a PM or the Carnival website would be more appropriate to post photos since this blog is for DCL?

Not at all.....there are no rules against it. There are a few of us on here who have cruised DCL a lot (12 for me) and have also cruised on other lines, so we know that we can trust eachother's judgement.

Here's the link to my pictures from earlier this month. I posted them on a thread for the people cruising out of Galveston on the Disney Magic, too.

Did you not read what I said? I asked for a link to elsewhere so they didn't have to post their picture here.

And the thread title IS Disney VS Carnival Magic, so it's quite appropriate.

This is EXACTLY what I came to the forum looking for tonight--info to help me, a Houstonian, decide whether or not the Carnival Magic would satisfy me after my great DCL experiences. If this is not what you are looking for, skip this thread.

To the OP--thanks so much for the pics. Really just what I was looking for.
