Zoom call quality on Carnival Magic?


Recommended Posts

You're def going to need the premium. I cant speak for the quality because I know they just dry docked the Magic but im not sure if they upgraded the internet. When i was on the Vista in 2018, i streamed a ppv on my laptop and it was crystal clear however that ship has the "upgraded" internet. When are you going on the Magic? We are going in 10 days and getting the platinum package. I can report back on quality.

Premium to even get it going, and it's still going to be rough. You'll have to find a place that has really great signal (like the piano bar, if it's open and not crowded) for a Zoom or any kind of video streaming call. You won't be able to do anything from your stateroom and it will be spotty in outdoor areas.


I tried streaming and Zoom multiple times on the Magic back in August and my best locations were the Serenity bar for outdoors, the Piano Bar when unoccupied and the Escape Bar when it wasn't being used for meetings or Chef's Table. The Library might also be an option, but it was always full when I went with others doing the same thing.


Good luck!
