Carnival Magic to undergo major dry dock improvements

In preparation for its Space Coast debut this spring, the 130,000-ton Carnival Magic will undergo an extensive multi-million-dollar dry dock that will add a variety of exciting dining and bar innovations.

New additions will include Guy’s Burger Joint, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, Pizzeria del Capitano and the Alchemy Bar.

Currently sailing from Galveston, Texas, Carnival Magic will reposition to Port Canaveral, Florida, in April 2016 to begin year-round Caribbean departures from that port.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line said: “Carnival Magic is already a ground-breaking ship – it was the first to feature our popular Cucina del Capitano Italian restaurant, the Caribbean-themed RedFrog Pub and SportSquare outdoor recreation facility – and with these new features we’re making this spectacular floating resort even better.

“Following this extensive refurbishment, Carnival Magic will offer even more exciting on-board choices for travel agents to market to their clients,” she added.
The two-week dry dock will take place from February 21st to March 6th, 2016.

All of the new spaces complement the Carnival Magic’s array of on-board features, including the SportSquare outdoor recreation area with a suspended ropes course offering views to the sea 150 feet below; a 22,750-square-foot Cloud 9 Spa with a thalassotherapy pool, thermal suite and 17 private treatment rooms and the RedFrog Pub where guests can enjoy a frosty brew while soaking up the bar’s Key West meets British West Indies vibe.

Carnival Magic will continue its seven-day schedule from Galveston through April 10th, 2016 then reposition to Port Canaveral to launch year-round seven-day Caribbean cruises beginning April 23rd, 2016.
