First, if you haven’t read the 1-5 reasons to cruise the Carnival Magic, go back and read that first.

6. Carnival Fun For The Whole Family


The Carnival Magic is incredibly family friendly. From Camp Ocean to Club 02, there are kids camps for the littles to play with kids their own age (and the adults can have a break). If kids camp isn’t for you, the ship has so many options!

Waterworks was my son’s personal favorite, he had so much fun on the little waterslides (and my husband had a lot of fun on the big waterslides). There are also pools and hot tubs to choose from if you have water babies in your family.

Aside from the pool, there is always a show at the theater. We checked out the illusionist one night, and while my son fell asleep – my husband and I were wowed. I’m always looking for the trick when it comes to illusionists and I was baffled. Mind = Blown.

There is also the SportSquare, Sky Walk and Arcade to visit too (see the ship tour video).

On the Lido Deck, there is always an afternoon party. From dancing, challenges, Dr. Suess Parade, and even a hairy chest contest (yes, you read that right) there is usually an activity on Deck 10 that you can take part in or watch.

Not into activities? There are lots of chairs and loungers to soak up the sun. If you’re kid-free, I recommend checking out the Serenity deck, it’s 21 + for peace and quiet.

7. The Casino

The casino and I were hit and miss, we’re frenemies. Fun to be around but takes my money. The casino on the Carnival Magic has a lot of events like hot seats and blackjack tournaments that make it oh-so tempting to visit. I actually won $220 from $40 at blackjack, so that was pretty exciting. In the end, it’s entertainment and I spent a lot less at the casino than I would a night out to see a show in Vegas.

8. The Shopping

I found huge savings at the Fun Shops on jewelry, name brand purses and wallets, and liquor. Even in USD, it was cheaper than purchasing many of these items back home.

9. The Waterpark

I believe that Waterworks onboard the Carnival Magic deserved its own heading. I found it unbelievable that (essentially) a boat had its own waterpark on board. Two big waterslides for bigger kids and adults, two little waterslides for the kids, a giant bucket that dumped water and figures to play on, all of that on the Carnival Magic. It was so much fun to watch my son enjoy it.

As I said in the first post, this was our first family vacation. Looking back on the photos (especially the one above) makes me a little teary because I have never seen my son have so much. He’s young and gets a bit nervous when it comes to trying new things, but he came out of his shell on this trip and was so excited about the whole experience. Him having such an amazing time made the trip for me.

Memories Made on the Carnival Magic with family travel.

With experiencing a new side of the world and meeting new people, my son has gained confidence. Before the cruise, he was shy around other children and was self-conscious. Now when he goes to the park and sees new kids, he runs up and plays. He never did this before and I feel that being included in activities that his new friends were doing gave him the boost he needed to feel confident.

Bloggers from both Canada and the US on the Carnival Magic.

My family made amazing memories together, but we also made memories with the incredible people above. Being invited on the #LetsGoReatreat opened up the doors for me. Not just business wise but friendship wise as well. The majority of us were already friends on Facebook and chatted, but it’s different when you meet up in person. There’s a true connection. I’m grateful for meeting these fabulous ladies (and a few more that didn’t make this photo).

So that’s it. There are my 10 Reasons to Cruise with Carnival Magic. If you’re doing what I do before a vacation and Google the heck out of it, I hope this helped you. If you have already booked, and you’re looking for inspiration to fire you up, I hope you found it.
