The Magic continues the Dream class tradition of large-scale, bow-to-stern cruise ship fun including the food-and-entertainment space Ocean Plaza, the splashy stylings of Carnival WaterWorks… and The Lanai, a convenient, scenic half-mile outdoor wraparound promenade deck..

Adventures abound:

  • The outdoor fitness-and-fun of SportSquare, featuring the world’s first ropes course at sea.

  • Lip Synch Battle, Playlist Productions

  • George Lopez Comedy Club

  • Guy’s Burger Joint

  • Serenity Adult Only Retreat and Spa

  • Seuss at Sea, Full size basketball court, mini-golf and more

Full-service Cloud 9 Spa:

  • A luxurious lineup of signature treatments, massages, Medi-Spa and salon services to make you glow.


  • Carnival's onboard waterpark. First up, there's the Twister Waterslide, hundreds of feet of spiraling awesomeness that starts you off high in the air and gets you down low with one of the fastest, wettest rides you'll find anywhere. Wear your speed suit for Speedway Splash, which features hundreds of feet of racing action, plus special lighting effects you'll experience on the road to victory. DrainPipe ends with one major swirl of a finish, while PowerDrencher takes soaking seriously — imagine the biggest bucket of water you've ever seen, raining down on you from above.


  • Magic Lobby: The Magic Bar you can listen to everything from salsa music to a classical pianist perform from the stage suspended over the space.

  • RedFrog Pub: Now a Carnival staple, the RedFrog Pub debuted on Magic. The L-shaped bar features wonderfully kitschy island decor, tropical drinks in fishbowls, Carnival's own Thirsty Frog Red Ale, a nice patio area for snacks and people-watching, as well as an outdoor area with swinging chairs.

  • Alchemy Bar: The Alchemy Bar features mixologists in lab coats who whip up cocktail "prescriptions;" the Cucumber Sunrise is our favorite. Mixology lessons are usually held here once per cruise.

  • Vibe Nightclub: Every mega-ship needs a disco -- and as nightclubs go, Vibe is a pretty hot time.

  • Play It Again: Play It Again is a well-attended piano bar enclave with Carnival's signature baby grand piano, giant disco-ball-ish light fixtures and martinis at the ready.

  • Punchliner Comedy Club: In the style of a classic Manhattan comedy club, curated by George Lopez.

  • Carnival Magic Casino where Lady Luck awaits at slots, tables and tournaments.
