Gipson Family & Friends 5th Annual Cruise

We knew exactly what we were doing when we named her Carnival Magic.… and we’re sure you’ll agree.

At 1,004 feet, this amazing ship continued the Dream class tradition of large-scale bow-to-stern fun including food and entertainment space Ocean Plaza, the splashy stylings of Carnival WaterWorks, and The Lanai, a convenient and scenic half-mile outdoor wraparound promenade deck.

Carnival Magic didn’t stop there; she debuted all-new ways to have a good time onboard, and continues to prove it with the outdoor fitness-and-fun of SportSquare, featuring the world’s first ropes course at sea. This ship introduced the world to Cucina del Capitano, which serves up Italian favorites fit for a captain. And who can forget their first taste of RedFrog Pub, with its laid back, not-a-worry-to-be-found atmosphere… not to mention its exclusive, tasty, not-a-drop-to-be-found (on land, that is) beer, ThirstyFrog Red.

Carnival Magic doesn’t just start good things — she continues delighting passengers to this day.


An Interior stateroom is the most affordable way to cruise, and Carnival Magic's interiors are not just cozy, but are full of things you'd expect from any Carnival stateroom: a full private bathroom, Carnival Comfort Collection linens and more.

Ocean View

On Carnival Magic, Deluxe Ocean View staterooms are a great choice for families who want to let the sun shine in as they sail. Rooms in this category feature great views, a full bathroom — plus a separate washroom — and while stateroom configurations vary, certain Deluxe Ocean View rooms have space to sleep up to five cruisers.


Balcony staterooms were designed for maximum sea breeze and the most stunning views, so look to a balcony if you're looking to cruise aboard Carnival Magic. Any time you're in your room, you're just steps away from your own personal outdoor oasis, featuring the sort of sea view you can also feel.
