Carnival Magic Setting Sail Today from Venice, Italy

The Magic is setting sail today from Venice, Italy on her first cruise. This is a very big event that is going to go down in history. This is indeed by far Carnivals most luxurious ship. The decor is simply MARVELOUS....Here is a picture of Carnivals first cruise ship the Mardi Gras sailing next to the Magic.  We have Number 1 next to Number 100 LOL. The Mardi Gras looks liek the tug boat for the Magic lol. My things have changed over the years. I know a few people who have been on the 1st boat and hearing the stories is amazing and I wish I could brag about being on the Mardi Gras. I can't even imagine what it was like on that ship.

The good luck coin placed on EVERY Carnival ship to ensure good luck and safe voyage

 Of course they have the best entertainers on the ship Senior Cruise Director John Heald leading the way. Here is a picture of John Heald and the CEO of Carnival Gerry Cahill. Mr Cahill is extremely a nice man and really goes out of his way for the guest and the employees. Super great guy and if you ever cruise On Carnival and get to meet him, its an honor. In the next few months till the end of October she will be in Europe with some very nice itineraries. Going from Barcelona and Venice. I'm very excited about this ship as she is a beauty and she has some of the finest things to offer on a cruise ship. You can keep up to date with her ceremony on  Carnivals Facebook

I truly wish I was setting sail on her today with the rest of my cruise friends. I will venture her in the future when we bring her over to the United States on the transatlantic cruise. Now there may be some good news for me coming....that's a huge maybe. We will see. I will keep you posted but its going to change a lot of things. Some pretty cool things on the magic is the new Sports Square, RedFrog Pub, Carnival Water Works (biggest water park on any cruise ship) and one of my favs Cloud 9 Spa, lastly Cucina del Captiano.
Okay I am not too crazy about it but here is a pizza combination they serve at the 24 our pizza joint on the ship

Here is the video of John Heald interviewing the sports director Eli. The Sports Square is AWESOME!!!

I will post some photos rom my trip later today too as well.
