Carnival Magic Joins Carnival Valor, Carnival Victory, and Carnival Sunshine
to Offer Widest Variety of Cruise Lengths and Itineraries from Space Coast
MIAMI – Carnival Cruise Line and the Canaveral Port Authority have celebrated the arrival of the Space Coast’s newest ship, the 130,000-ton Carnival Magic.
As well, they marked the official grand opening of the ship’s new Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse designed by Food Network star Guy Fieri.
A portside event was highlighted by the carving of a massive, six-foot-long pulled pork sandwich by officials from Carnival and the port to commemorate the debut of Fieri’s new BBQ venue which was installed during a multi-million-dollar dry dock.
The event also included a traditional maritime plaque exchange between Carnival Magic Captain Antonio Marchetti, Carnival’s Vice President of Commercial Port Operations Carlos Torres de Navarra and Captain John Murray, chief executive officer of the Canaveral Port Authority.
Carnival Magic is the newest Carnival ship to sail from Port Canaveral, joining Carnival Victory and Carnival Valor on year-round departures from the Space Coast, as well as the Carnival Sunshine which operates seasonal sailings.
