  1. First choice - Riviera Deck 1 Oceanview (6A) or Porthole (PT) - - most cabin space of any standard stateroom and usually a bargain. Keep in mind, these are not the Deluxe Oceanview (6L, 6M, or 6N) - which have 2 bathrooms that take up way too much space.

  2. We just got off the Magic a few weeks ago - I had two noticeable issues while on board. 1) We had connecting cabins. The temperature in our kids cabin was much lower than ours, which never seemed to be able to cool off. We like it cool when we sleep (around 68-70) but our room seemed to be more around 74-76.

  4. We used it on the Magic last week. It worked pretty well - the capabilities and reliability of the HUB app have increased exponentially over the last year. We had a large group see it was much easier to connect and set up meeting times for dinner, shows, and keeping track of kids, etc. The biggest issue that we had is that we had to remember to keep the app open all of the time -- once you close it, you no longer get notifications. However, this was the first cruise that I no longer relied on the paper Funtimes, as the App had all of that information, plus the menus for each day at dinner,
