Guy Fieri, TV star and restaurateur, brings authentic and tasty barbecue to Carnival Magic® for a magical dining experience. You’ve never tasted barbecue like this at sea–savor slow-smoked pork butt, dry-rubbed and grilled chicken, and smoked Andouille sausage, to name a few menu options. And don’t forget the collard greens and classic potato salad!
As if barbecue wasn’t enough, you can also sink your teeth into a hot and juicy burger, fresh-off-the-grill! Customize your burger your way with an extensive list of toppings, and add a side of hand-cut and seasoned fries for the best burger experience at sea! Try the Chilius Maximus if you like your burger topped with chili, or the Pig Patty – a “burger” patty made out of bacon!
Fresh and vibrant Mexican food is the specialty of this fun and lively cruise dining spot. Munch on delicious tortilla chips and an assortment of spicy salsas while the chef prepares his specialty tacos and burritos stuffed however you’d like. Choose from wheat or jalapeno tortillas, and chipotle rubbed chicken, seasoned battered fish, or roasted pork, and top it off with your favorite fillings and toppings, including refried beans, roasted corn, tomatillos, and pico de gallo.
When the craving for pizza hits, you can head on over to the ship captain’s favorite cruise dining joint – Pizzeria del Capitano, a 24-hour pizza kitchen serving an assortment of made-to-order pizzas with fresh ingredients. Try the Margherita with tomato sauce, fresh basil, and premium mozzarella, or the Prosciutto–topped with prosciutto of course, along with roasted garlic and Rucola. And the Caesar salad is pretty good too!
Much more than an ordinary breakfast, this cruise food comes with a large side of whimsical fun, courtesy of Dr. Seuss and Carnival Magic®. Unique, yet fantastically flavorful breakfast options await when you sit down to this family fun breakfast. Try the always classic Green Eggs & Ham, or the “From There to Here, From Here to There, Funny Belgian Waffles are Everywhere,” which can be topped with an assortment of berries and whipped cream. And you’ll get the chance to get pretty creative yourself when you choose the “Scrambled Super-Dee Dooper-dee-Booper, Special de luxe a-la-Peter T Hooper Omelets!”
For an additional cost, you can enjoy even more cruise dining options onboard Carnival Magic®.
Treat yourself to the classic trattoria experience while at sea on your cruise to the Caribbean and enjoy a family-style meal of all the favorite Italian dishes.

All your seafood cravings will be fulfilled at the Seafood Shack, where you can savor buckets of fried fish, steamed lobster, and peel ‘n’ eat shrimp in a quaint, New England-style setting. The Fried Seafood Platter gives you a bit of everything, while the Lobster Roll offers a real taste of New England.
