Carnival Magic!!! Cheers and tears....

Recommended Posts

Galveston has the Carnival Magic!!! and the Carnival Triumph.

Very sadly, we lose the Conquest and the Ecstasy to NOLA.

I'm thrilled that Galveston has been blessed with such an important new vessel but VERY sad that we're losing our favorite ships...

Will it visit NYC before it home ports in Texas?I'm hoping it does like the Dream did.

No.

The Dream's visit to New York was a disaster.

If Conquest and Ecstacy have to go anywhere, at least it is just down the road in NOLA!

The ship didn't fit at the 88th Street Pier.

Embark... debark was HORRIBLE and fingers were pointed in both directions.

We didn't sail 'til about 6:30 and folks had barely just gotten on board. Not a great experience...

Me too. Earlier this week, booked the Conquest for Mar 11 to be sure I get one last trip before she moves. And probably going on Randy's Team Magic group if I can swing it.

We loved the voyage as well despite the 30 foot seas and 96 knot winds.

Embark and debark sucked...

I'll be getting off as you're getting on. I'll be the one kicking and screaming, begging to stay.

 

I wonder if I can talk my husband into a cruise on Ecstacy before she leaves? I'd love to sail on all of them if possible.

Mach, this is bittersweet. :(:)

The Conquest is such a huge part of all of us.....you will appreciate and smile at this......Tara saw John's video with me and she said "Momma, that is so sad, the Conquest was such a big part of my childhood" :D:D To those of you who don't know me or my daughter, she will be 9 in a couple of weeks and we are sailing on the Conquest on Sunday, will be Tara's 3rd time on her.

I told her that we will make new memories on the Magic and the Triumph.:)

Great news for us Texans. It will be very hard to say goodbye to Conquest and ecstasy. They are both great ships. I will have to sail on the both before they leave. :)

I'm excited to hear that a new ship is coming to a Gulf Coast state. (And, yes, I know that Florida is also on the Gulf, so don't get all cute about that and tell me that they get new ships all of the time.) But what ports will the Magic visit?

Do you think (know) that they will do both ships year round out of Galveston like the current arrangement or move the Magic to Europe in the Summer and leave just the Triumph? It will be interesting to see the itineraries when they come out.

 

We've done the Conquest twice and look forward to the change....

i sincerely doubt that they would move magic to europe for the summers... i can't imagine both ships not being year round in what is clearly, per the selection of galveston as hope port, an important port for carnival.

 

if they chose to do cruise europe (which hasn't been announced or even hinted at this point), i bet they'd send one of the conquest class out of miami (liberty, valor, glory (part time)) since they've got so much overlap (and low prices, vs. other ports, and certainly vs. galveston) anyhow...

Cheers
