CCL-Carnival Cruise Line's ship Carnival Magic docked at Half Moone Cruise Center just after 6 am on Sunday, May 15, and marked the first cruise to depart from Norfolk (Virginia USA) since 2019.

It is also the largest passenger liner homeported in/to ever set sail from Virginia, having max passenger capacity 4428 plus 1367 crew.

Nauticus, which operates Half Moone, planned a ribbon-cutting for Sunday to welcome the first passengers onboard. The occasion was part of what Nauticus is describing as its "busiest year ever for cruises."
