Carnival Cruise Lines’ newest ship, the 3,690-passenger Carnival Magic, will debut with a schedule of seven-, nine- and 12-day Mediterranean cruises operating roundtrip from Barcelona, Spain, from May to October 2011.
This marks Carnival’s first full season of Mediterranean cruises in three years, as well as the first time the line has homeported a ship in Barcelona.
The 130,000-ton Carnival Magic will offer a host of features popularized on its sister ship, Carnival Dream, including a WaterWorks aqua park, a cafe/live entertainment venue called Ocean Plaza; a Serenity adults-only retreat; spacious, modern facilities for children and teens; and a wide range of stateroom categories. Several innovations unique to the Carnival Magic will be announced in the coming months.
