An Arrival and an Opening

When most restaurants open, they cut a ribbon. On Carnival Magic, they cut a six-foot sandwich, bursting with pulled pork (perhaps more appropriate for Washington).

Carnival was in full Carnival mode at Port Canaveral today. The event was staged to welcome Carnival Magic to Port Canaveral and note Carnival’s expansion at the port. Prior to its arrival, the ship underwent a dry dock which added a number of new features to the ship, including a new Carnival restaurant, Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse, designed by Food Network celebrity chef Guy Fieri.

But in some ways this seems like it might represent nearing the end of an era. In other ways, it may represent the start of a new one.

The complete story appeared in the April 20 edition of Cruise News Daily.
