Carnival
OVERVIEW

Carnival Magic is the second ship in Carnival's
Dream-class. (
See our profile of sister ships
Carnival
Dream and Carnival Breeze).  At over
130,000 gross tons, the Dream class ships are the
largest cruise ships in the Carnival Cruise Lines fleet.

The basic design of the Magic hearkens back to
Carnival Destiny, the first ship to break the 100,000
gross ton mark.  However, over the years, Carnival
has steadily expanded and improved the design over
more than a half dozen subsequent ships.  Thus, while
those who are familiar with Carnival Destiny should
not feel lost on the Dream class ships, there is much
that is different.

Although the Carnival ships can be divided into
various classes, no two Carnival ships are exactly
alike.  For one things, the interior decor of each ship
is distinctive.  Magic is bright and glamorous, with
extensive use of lighting and polished metal.  As a
result, she has something of the look of a Las Vegas
hotel.  She is perhaps bolder looking than her sister
Carnival Dream but not in the same way as earlier
Carnival ships.  The public rooms are not as theatrical
as the earlier ships.

In addition, Carnival continued to tweak the design
with Carnival Magic.  Among other things, a new
sports complex was added to the open decks and the
line's first pub was added to the line up of bars and
lounges.  The specialty steakhouse was moved to the
Promenade Deck and the art gallery shifted to the
Deck 4 promenade/passage way.

Magic offers the state-of-the art Carnival cruise
experience.  The emphasis is on light-hearted fun and
the atmosphere is relaxed and casual.   At the same
time, the features and services are good quality and
the prices are affordable.  One often sees young
families and multi-generation families on the Carnival
ships.

Magic is based in Galveston, Texas and sails to the
Caribbean and the Bahamas.
