  1. We took a break by doing the Panama Canal cruise on the Island Princess in March. With stops in Columbia and Costa Rica, we went to a couple of places we hadn't been before including the canal itself. But back on the Magic this March as we are primarily Carnival people. We're not super big partiers or anything like that, but we do like the laid back style. The Island Princess was definitely a break, I think I've never seen so many motorized chairs in one place or a ship more deserted after about 9 PM. Our bar waiters commented on the low amount of bar sales this time of year as compared to the summer Alaska season!
  2. 224 on the Carnival Magic, February 29 to the Eastern Caribbean.
  3. We too liked the Victory and thought it had a perfect balance between public space and staterooms. But removing the aft lounge and replacing it with more cabins and removing 1 level of the main showroom completely changes everything. We’re not giving up on Carnival but scheduling our next cruise on the Magic. We’ve sailed on all three Dream class ships and I think they were built from the getgo with enough public space to handle the load. The updates to the Dream class have repurposed existing spaces ie. The Plaza Bar becomes Alchemy, etc. without changing the platform. At least as far as I can tell.
  4. Good morning, we are heading out on the Island Princess on March 10 and we purchased several of the canned soda packages so we can stock the fridge with Diet Coke. I didn't see an option to specify which kind so I'm guessing we can't order the sodas until we're onboard? Our previous experience with this has been on Carnival and they have the cokes in the stateroom upon arrival.
