  1. Do you recall the hours on embark day they were on special? We have Faster To the Fun again and are heading out on the Magic this weekend. Last year was our first Carnival sailing so we didn't know about the drink specials on embark day.
  2. Really enjoyed your review! We are on the same itinerary in a few weeks! We'll also be trying a cove balcony this time around. We've sailed Magic before but have been in a Lido deck balcony which we loved but found to be super noisy as it was right near the elevators and across from the laundry room where folks congregated later in the week while waiting for their clothes to wash and dry.
  3. I can login to "manage my booking" but can't load any available shore excursions. Next cruise is Sept. for us so I've been checking once or twice a day for Faster to the Fun.
  4. Stinger-pr, what about any local beaches that you take a quick/cheap cab ride to near the port in OSJ? We are coming in on the CCL Magic in November and were planning to do a little bit of beach time and then come back to walk around OSJ before re-boarding the ship. Thanks!
  5. They ran a Labor Day sale on their site where you could book treatments before sailing for I believe 15% off? Most lines offer giveaways if you visit the spa on embark day. My wife won a free teeth whitening treatment in the spa on a Disney cruise one time. We had stopped in and filled out a card on embark day. Entered drawings several times on RCCL on the first day as well. Most will also offer cheaper prices during days the ship is in port as the spa and other "for fee" places on ship are naturally slower on port days.
  6. Got an offer last night to move from our deck10/Lido balcony room on Magic down to an Ocean Suite on deck 7 for a total of $460. I declined as that "special" rate for an ocean suite was about the going rack-rate for it back when I had booked out cruise. Rather keep our Lido location and we were able to snag FTTF so we'll save the $460 for elsewhere...
  7. Going on our first Carnival sailing in early November on the Magic. Got an email/call from the upsell fairy last night. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 7yo & 4yo) currently booked in a deck 10/Lido balcony cabin. The offer was to move to an ocean suite down on deck 7 for a total of $460. I declined the offer. The larger room/balcony was certainly attractive but that "special" rate was pretty much what rack rate was back when I originally booked our cruise. In addition, we feel the Lido deck location is superb as well. I had looked at suites at that time. On a positive note...I woke up this morning and did my daily check to see if Faster to the Fun was available again (been showing sold out on our sailing for a while) and sure enough it was! Snagged FTTF and we will keep our Lido balcony!
  8. Anyone know if Magic has this? We are not new to cruising but new to Carnival and are sailing this fall. I thought I had seen that you can get a pitcher of their house beer (red frog) for a decent price compared to ordering bottles of standard domestics etc? Thanks!
