Western Carribbean Cruise on Carnival Magic- This Mama Loves Blog

We are packing our bags and heading to sea- literally- in just under 2 weeks. Our first cruise as a family. My second cruise, and my husband and kids’ will be on their first cruise ship.  To say we’re excited is an understatement- we are really looking forward to some time away together as a family and also to exploring not one but four ports in the meantime. To be honest, the kids are convinced we won’t even ever want to leave the ship, because we’ve been watching videos and reading about all of the cool stuff to do, eat and see.

We are embarking on the 7 Day Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral. We are heading out on the Carnival Magic for an amazing route featuring Cozumel, Belize, Mahogany Bay (Isla Roatan) and Costa Maya!

Obviously we are excited to explore the ports, and I will share more on those when we’re back, but ON the ship? Here’s what we’re looking forward to, in no particular order…

Movies at sea – Carnival Seaside theater has a 275 square foot movie screen. We can now say we’ve watched a movie on the big screen in the middle of the ocean!

Waterslides– What is there to say? Waterslides are fun! The kids are excited to hear me scream- they always get a kick out of it.  They are all not 100% convinced there aren’t slides that actually come out in the ocean, but they’ll believe us when they see!

SkyCourse– We’re going to do a rope course on a ship in the middle of the ocean! This is a favorite activity in this house so we are SUPER excited for it!

MiniGolf– Always a nice way to spend some family time, although some people tend to get super competitive….

SkyRide– I personally cannot WAIT to see the views from this high looking out on the ocean. Plus, who’s ever done a bike ride on a ship? Not me!!

  • We have done that cruise with Carnival but not on that ship. Same exact ports. LOVED it. Roatan is stunning and Belize is wonderful. I would return in a second actually. OH my gosh that sky ride looks so much fun!! This I would do In a heartbeat. Have a great time. I love cruises for families. They are very affordable and a tonne of fun. This ship looks like a hoot and a half! A few months ago we were on a different cruise line with the ropes course like this. The KIDS LOVED it. Have the best time!

  • I'm so excited for you. I can't wait until we go on our cruise. It's not until next year, since this year we will have a newborn, but it is something fantastic we look forward to every other year.

  • That looks like a metric ton of fun. We've been on several cruises, and only one of them was NOT Carnival. We learned our lesson!
