'Back to Fun' event
Embarking passengers were welcomed with a 'Back to Fun' event that included ribbon-cutting and fanfare.
'New York has been a wonderful partner for more than two decades, and we are delighted to provide versatile vacation options from this popular market again,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said.
Carnival Magic introduced many of the line's signature elements now seen across the fleet, including the Caribbean-themed RedFrog Pub, the Cucina del Capitano family-style Italian restaurant and SkyCourse, a suspended ropes course.
Bermuda, Eastern Caribbean, Canada
Following an initial four-day Bermuda cruise, Carnival Magic will depart from New York on 15 sailings with various itineraries this summer and fall. They include six-day Eastern Caribbean sailings (Amber Cove, Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay or Grand Turk, San Juan and St. Thomas), a variety of Bermuda cruises, from four to seven days; a nine-day 'Carnival Journeys' Eastern Caribbean cruise (Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Maarten and St. Thomas) and two weeklong Canada cruises.
Carnival first began sailing from New York in 1998 and has offered regular cruises from there on several ships.
