Project Description


When it comes to the cruise ship industry it is a never ending game of can you top it, each new ship that comes on the scene in Miami’s booming cruise port is sure to feature the latest and greatest in fun, relaxation and recreation.  Such is the case with Carnival Cruise Line’s newest vessel, Carnival Magic, which features the ultimate in outdoor fun and fitness at the innovative SportSquare.
When creating the designs for SportsSquare, Carnival wanted to include a 2×2 video wall for outdoor gaming, but were faced with all of the challenges that come with an outdoor video installation. Carnival Cruise Line awarded the bid to Midtown Video for the custom outdoor enclosure and high brightness video screens.

“Account Executive, Chari Hill and her team were very helpful when it came to reviewing the available options for the equipment on board,” shared James Riccio, Supervisor of AV Media for Carnival Cruise Line, “They delivered a product that fits the area and everyone on board really enjoys it.”

The line’s most extensive outdoor recreation area by far, SportSquare is surrounded by a jogging track and features SkyCourse, the first ropes course at sea, (suspended above deck); an outdoor fitness area, a court for basketball, volleyball, and soccer and Carnival’s first two-level nine-hole miniature golf course.
