The Carnival Magic is a Dream-Class ship, and is the second in the line. Her sister ships are the Carnival Dream and the Carnival Breeze, which are both currently in operation also. Like most Carnival ships, the Magic is an excellent place to have an exciting, party-filled time. Because of this, you’ll find that, like the other Dream-Class Ships, there’re plenty of awesome amenities aboard the Carnival Magic.
One thing that many may not realize is that the Carnival Magic was the first to introduce several things to cruising world. It was the first ship to feature a Cherry on Top candy shop – now a staple for Carnival’s newer ships – and it was actually the first cruise ship in the world to feature a ropes course. Aside from all of the aquatic fun you can have on deck, whether in the Beach Pool or the Tides Pool, there’s also an awesome Sports Square, where there are plenty of activities to keep you fit and entertained.
So come take a tour of the Carnival Magic, one of the finest ships in Carnival’s fleet. And just in case you were thinking this ship was mostly for adults, wait until you see what this ship has in store for your teenaged children. You’ll find that at #23.
