Carnival Magic’s Big Reveal

April 30, 2011 -


As you all know, tomorrow is the day of both Carnival Magic’s naming ceremony and her first sailing, which means it’s the sort of day that will likely go down in history as one of the funnest Sundays ever! We know that not everybody can make it to Venice for the ceremony, so we’re bringing it to you. We’re going to make you feel like you’re there — check out Carnival’s Facebook page tomorrow afternoon for lots of fun videos (including Carnival Magic Q&A sessions with John)…. plus all-new looks at some of the new spaces that make this ship special.

We truly hope you enjoy tomorrow’s festivities, and once again it will all be happening from 9:00am – 2:00pm ET, right on Carnival’s Facebook page.

And now, before we rest our beards for the night, please enjoy this brilliant interview with John and Eli, Carnival Magic’s Sports Director!


Hi, I’m John, and this is my blog. So please don’t mistake my opinions — or those of my dear friends, fans or commenters — for those of Carnival Cruise Line or Carnival Corporation. My apologies in advance for anything I may say that upsets you, but this disclaimer covers Carnival and puts the blame directly on me………….. bugger.
