We knew exactly what we were doing when we named her Carnival Magic... and we're sure you'll agree.
At 1,004 feet, this amazing ship continued the Dream class tradition of large-scale bow-to-stern fun including food and entertainment space Ocean Plaza, the splashy stylings of Carnival WaterWorks, and The Lanai, a convenient and scenic half-mile outdoor wraparound promenade deck.
Carnival Magic didn't stop there; she also introduced the world to all-new ways to have a good time onboard, and proves it with the outdoor fitness-and-fun of SportSquare, featuring the world's first ropes course at sea. Cucina del Capitano serves up Italian favorites fit for a captain. And who can forget the 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.
We sent Carnival Magic to amazing destinations, beginning with a season in Europe and now, sailing from her home port of Galveston, to some of the best destinations the Caribbean has to offer.
