Image of Carnival Magic’s Ropes Course Selected as Porthole Cruise Magazine Cover in Recent On-Line Contest

The voters have spoken!  A dramatic photo of the Carnival Magic’s ropes course received the most votes in Porthole Cruise magazine’s on-line contest to select the cover for its December 2011 issue.

Shot by professional photographer Andy Newman, the photo shows a child and his father traversing over the suspended ropes course which is part of the ship’s SportSquare outdoor recreation complex.

The ropes course – the first on a cruise ship – is one of many innovations on the Carnival Magic, which entered service in Europe in May and makes its U.S. debut November 14, launching year-round Caribbean cruises from Galveston, Texas.
