Carnival Cruise Lines & Maroon 5 Set to Rock Texas for Carnival Magic’s US Debut

Texans know everything is bigger in Texas (even if the rest of us don't), and following that logic Carnival Cruise Lines’ celebration for the U.S. debut of its newest ship, Carnival Magic is set to be a Texas-size event. Carnival has teamed up with three-time GRAMMY Award-winning band Maroon 5 (pictured here) to perform an exclusive concert to welcome the line’s newest “Fun Ship” to its year-round homeport of Galveston, Texas.

Carnival Magic, which entered service in May in Europe, will make its transatlantic voyage to arrive in Galveston on Nov 13. That afternoon, lucky invited guests will enjoy a performance by the globally recognized group known for hits like “Moves Like Jagger," “This Love,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Wake Up Call” and “Makes Me Wonder.” Free tickets for the event will be distributed through various channels, including Carnival’s Facebook page, which will feature a contest that asks fans to record a video of their best dance moves for a chance to win two tickets to the concert, along with round-trip airfare, hotel, ground transportation, and spending money. Tickets will also be given away through select Texas radio stations.

Adam Levine, Maroon 5 frontman and coach on the hit NBC series “The Voice,” said, “We’ve played every kind of venue imaginable across the world, but we’ve never helped to launch a new cruise ship. We’re excited to work with Carnival and to be part of the Carnival Magic celebration for fans in Texas.”

On Nov 14, Carnival Magic will launch its Caribbean cruise program which will feature two different week-long itineraries from Galveston, including 7-day western Caribbean voyages to Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, and 7-day eastern Caribbean cruises to Nassau, Freeport, and Key West.
