We knew exactly what we were doing when we named this ship Carnival Magic... and we're sure you'll agree.
At 1,004 feet, this one continued the Dream class tradition of large-scale, bow-to-stern cruise ship fun including the food-and-entertainment space Ocean Plaza, the splashy stylings of Carnival WaterWorks... and The Lanai, a convenient, scenic half-mile outdoor wraparound promenade deck. In other words, a cruise on Carnival Magic has no shortage of its namesake charm!
It's no surprise Carnival Magic debuted all-new ways to have a good time onboard, and continues to prove it with the outdoor fitness-and-fun of SportSquare, featuring the world's first ropes course at sea. This is also the ship that introduced the world to Cucina del Capitano, which serves up Italian favorites fit for a captain. Who can forget their first taste of RedFrog Pub, with its laid back, not-a-worry-to-be-found atmosphere... plus its exclusive, tasty, not-a-drop-to-be-found (on land, that is) beer, ThirstyFrog Red. And if you wanted to visit the original Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse... guess which ship you'd check out!
Keeping with the times, Carnival Magic features the delicious good times of Guy's Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina, Alchemy Bar and RedFrog Rum Bar. And keeping with the moves, there's even Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, which lets you showcase yours up on stage.
Carnival Magic has a history of starting good things... and sharing them with guests.
