Carnival Magic

A magical experience,
inside and out.

As you explore the Mediterranean or Caribbean, take time to explore the Carnival Magic — a ship clearly worthy of its name. At 1,004 feet in length and a full 130,000 tons of fun, there's plenty of space for all the, well, magic there is to experience aboard Carnival Magic!

Carnival Magic is the ship that introduced:

  • SportSquare, the fitness-and-fun area featuring the first ropes course at sea.
  • Cucina del Capitano, Carnival's first-of-its-kind onboard Italian family-style dining experience.
  • Cherry on Top, our sweet new candy-and-more store.
  • RedFrog Pub, featuring Carnival's own ThirstyFrog Red — not to mention Caribbean-inspired appetizers, food and rum flights.

Carnival Magic also features these fun favorites:

  • Ocean Plaza, the indoor/outdoor space where you're never far from ocean breezes, tasty snacks, or live music.
  • Carnival WaterWorks, a really big, really wet, really fun water park featuring two waterslides!
  • The Lanai, a convenient wraparound walkway on the promenade… and home of the hot tub.
  • Prime Steakhouse, serving your choice of dry-aged steak or seafood entrees, not to mention gourmet appetizers, salads, soups and desserts.
  • Serenity Adult-Only Area, where kids are neither seen nor heard.
  • Camp Carnival, Circle "C" and Club O2, where kids can be kids (and teens, teens).

Activities & Entertainment

Having fun is easy to do on a Carnival cruise, and the Carnival Magic is no exception. Let the good times roll — day or night. Play a family-friendly game of mini golf (9 holes), shoot hoops, take a run or even challenge yourself on the ropes course. Get fit in the fitness center, relax and unwind by the pool or in Cloud 9 Spa… or if adult interaction is what you crave, the Serenity adults-only retreat is the perfect spot. As the sun sets, watch the entertainment excitement set in and see a show or laugh and enjoy good times with friends in one of the ship’s many bars, clubs and lounges. And don't forget about the food… the delicious and abundant food.

Don't worry about running out of things to do — you won't — but don't be surprised if you have trouble deciding what to do next!
