These voyages call at destinations including Valletta, Malta; and Marseilles, France, as well as Livorno, Civitavecchia (Rome), Naples and Messina, Italy.

Summer from New York

Carnival Magic will kick off a summer schedule from New York on June 17 with four- to nine-day voyages to Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Canada and New England. The schedule runs through Sept. 24, 2021.

Included are four-, five- and seven-day voyages to Bermuda, a four-day eastern Canada cruise, weeklong fall foliage sailings to New England and eastern Canada, and seven- and eight-day Caribbean departures featuring destinations like Amber Cove, Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, San Juan, St. Maarten and St. Thomas.

Carnival Magic’s New York season also includes a nine-day Carnival Journeys voyage to the eastern Caribbean with special on-board programming and activities.
