Your ship

Carnival Magic

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 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 ship introduced the world to Cucina del Capitano, which serves up Italian favorites fit for a captain. And who can forget their first taste of RedFrog Pub, with its laid back, not-a-worry-to-be-found atmosphere… not to mention its exclusive, tasty, not-a-drop-to-be-found (on land, that is) beer, ThirstyFrog Red.

Carnival Magic doesn’t just start good things — she continues delighting passengers to this day.
