Carnival Cruise Lines Magic Transformation At Freeport Dry Dock

Magic indeed! The Carnival Magic is currently undergoing a major multi-million dollar refurbishment in just 2 weeks. Cruise Hive has you covered with the very latest updates, photos and a behind the scenes look at the Grand Bahama shipyard in Freeport Bahamas. You won’t believe how many workers are working around the clock to get the Carnival Magic the best it can be.

The 130,000 gross ton vessel is receiving the very latest FUN 2.0 upgrades along with general improvements inside and on the exterior. The popular Guys Burger Joint is being added along with BlueIguana Cantina, RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, Pizzeria del Capitano and the Alchemy Bar.

Let’s take a look at the photos below which have been provided to Cruise Hive from crew member Russell Otway:

The 3,645 passenger Carnival Magic will resume sailing out of Galveston, Texas on March 6 but not for long. The Dream class ship will be redeployed to begin Western and Eastern Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, Florida in April. Guests will be able to experience the very best Carnival features thanks to the 2 week refurbishment.
