Carnival Magic- Things You Need to Know

As you may know, we took a 7 Day Eastern Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Magic in December. If you DIDN'T know or haven't seen our vlogs from our trip, check out our Carnival Magic Christmas Cruise playlist!

We had a much needed relaxing week with a little bit of adventure! But after our cruise, we collected quite a bit of information about the cruise ship and as always, we wanted do create a video on Things You Need to Know about the Carnival Magic. We covered all areas of the ship plus added in our own personal experience! So if you have never been on the Carnival Magic, looking cruise, or have already been, Check out our review below! 


If you haven't seen our other cruise reviews, we have videos on:

Carnival Liberty- Things You Need to Know

Norwegian Escape- Things You Need to Know

Carnival Paradise- Things You Need to Know


And stay tuned for 4 more in the next 3 months... We can't tell you what they are yet though! ;) SUBSCRIBE to our channel for more cruise videos!


Carnival Magic Christmas Cruise

Now I know we are a little behind on these as it is now JUNE... but we have a good excuse. Our external hard drive literally stopped working for 6 months! It would not turn on at all. That means not being able to retrieve ANY photos or videos that we put on there since December! I honestly thought they were goners, especially after a tech guy told us it could cost us over $1,000 to MAYBE get the files off. But after a lot of praying, God miraculously turned the hard drive on. I am not even joking. We were able to get some files off, but others were corrupted and unable to be used. Cullen took the footage we did have an pieced together some vlogs from our Carnival Magic Christmas Cruise where we spent 7 days in the Eastern Caribbean. I know that some of it may seem incomplete, and for that we do apologize! But we were able to work with what we had and share a small portion of our trip with you all. 

We will also be releasing our review on the Carnival Magic, so look forward to seeing that post in the next week or so!

Thanks for being patient and watching our vlogs! If you haven't already, please SUBSCRIBE  to our YouTube channel if you haven't already! It helps us out a lot and is at no cost to you!

Thanks y'all!

Why did we book?

Well… If you are just joining us for the first time, you may or may not know that we got married in St. Thomas while cruising on the Norwegian Escape back in January 2017. (We have plenty more information from that trip in our YouTube vlogs). Anyways, we had just gotten back from our trip, not quite as relaxed as we had hoped to be.. and had a scheduled ship inspection on the Carnival Pride. During our presentation, we were shown the port of Amber Cove, and Cullen said, "Lets go there!!” So, the minute we got home, Alyssa started researching Carnival cruises that stopped in Amber Cove, DR. And what do you know.. They had a sailing on December 2, 2017… which means we would be on a cruise for Cullen’s birthday. What a perfect birthday present! :D Plus, we get to go back to St. Thomas .. 1 month before our 1 year anniversary!

What we are looking forward to?

We are REALLY excited about this one!! We haven’t been on a Carnival cruise since 2013.. Shocking, I know! But we have been hearing wonderful things about the Magic!

We are obviously looking forward to visiting Amber Cove because that is the reason why we booked.

We have a large balcony cabin in the aft. Our bed will face out towards the water! (Category 8B)

AND! Since it will be the first of December, the ship should be decorated with beautiful Christmas and Holiday Decor! How MAGICal!!! :)
