If you’re looking to keep fit during your stay, Magic’s large fitness area is the place.
Cloud 9 offers a fitness center fully equipped with free weights, treadmills, and circuit machines. In a separate area are stationary bikes for spinning classes, as well as aerobics, abdominal classes, yoga, and other classes. Most classes are complimentary, but Pilates, yoga, and personal training have a cover charge ($12 to $85).
The fitness center also offers seminars and nutritional consultations. For all those who love to work out outside, there also is an outdoor Vitality exercise course and outdoor weight lifting equipment at the SportSquare.
The miniiature golf course with nine holes is spread over two levels. The clubs are located right there at the course, not tucked away, so anybody can play whenever they want.
The SkyCourse is the first ropes course at sea, a fact that Carnival loves to tout. It’s located right above the sports court. Donning a safety harness, passengers can work up their courage to get above deck 12 and walk one of two courses with swinging steps and beams. This is probably not an activity for everyone, but if you don’t mind the hits, it’s an interesting challenge.
At the sports court, passengers can play basketball, soccer, and volleyball. There also are tables nearby for ping pong, foosball, and pool (billiards, not swimming). Shuffleboard and chess/checkers are also available.
Sky Fitness has six exercise stations and is part of the jogging track.
