Princess Cruises has unveiled an unprecedented experience, the Magic Castle Conjurer's Cruise, a captivating and enchanting week-long voyage aboard the Discovery Princess from October 7th to 14th, 2023.

The Magic Castle Conjurer's Cruise ingeniously merges two iconic California entities – Princess Cruises, famed for its role as the oceanic co-star of the beloved Love Boat TV series, and Hollywood's renowned Magic Castle, which has stood as the epicenter of magic for 6 decades and has been the prestigious headquarters of the Academy of Magical Arts.

For over 60 years, the Magic Castle has been a champion of the art of magic, nurturing magicians and illusionists from around the world. Nestled atop the Hollywood hills, the Magic Castle is an exclusive Victorian mansion accessible only to its members and guests. A typical evening at this mystical haven is a medley of mesmerizing magic, from close-up performances to grand stage illusion shows held in various intimate showrooms. The venue envelops attendees in a world of rare memorabilia, stunning posters, distinctive bars, each with its character, and a sumptuous multi-room dining area.

Marking a momentous collaboration, Princess Cruises and The Magic Castle are teaming up to extend the allure of this iconic institution by bringing the enchantment of the Magic Castle to the sea, expanding its audience to a broader scope. This remarkable, themed seven-day cruise embarks from Los Angeles, charting a roundtrip course and making day-long stops at three sought-after coastal Californian destinations, including San Francisco, San Diego, and Ensenada, Mexico.

The Magic Castle Conjurer's Cruise promises a plethora of magical experiences and activities, such as:

  • Engaging performances by top-tier magicians in various ship locations, including the Princess Theater and bustling spots like the Piazza.
  • Enlightening magic workshops and lectures for those intrigued by the mystical arts.
  • Entertaining events like the "Taste of Magic," offering enchanting magic-inspired cocktails and libations, along with the "Magic of Cooking" demonstration.

  • Specially curated films screened on the grand outdoor Movies Under the Stars screen, harmonizing with the magic theme.
  • A unique historical presentation featuring insights from the founding family of the Magic Castle, providing an exclusive look into the origins and enduring appeal of this iconic venue.

Discovery Princess, the latest addition to the Princess fleet, presents an array of delightful features for guests, from exquisite dining options and a luxurious spa to lavish entertainment and expansive teak-planked decks ideal for relaxation and sunbathing.
