Carnival Cruise Line has named Kyndall “Fire” Magyar as Cruise Director of the new Carnival Jubilee and Matthew Boyd as the ship’s Entertainment Director.
In anticipation of Carnival Cruise Line’s next new ship, Carnival Jubilee, the cruise line today announced Matthew Boyd will serve as Entertainment Director and Kyndall “Fire” Magyar will be Cruise Director for the ship’s inaugural season.
The pair will lead the teams that provide all the fun aboard the new ship when she begins sailing on December 23 from her homeport of Galveston, Texas.
“Watching their dedication come to life on board Carnival Jubilee’s sister ships, I know Kyndall and Matthew are perfectly suited to deliver Texas-sized fun that maximizes the capabilities of this spectacular new ship and upholds our high standards for entertainment,” said Chris Nelson, Carnival’s vice president of entertainment.
Magyar and Boyd are both accomplished leaders who will bring a combined 20 years of Carnival experience to their teams.
The news comes a week after the company announced the appointment of the ship’s senior officers, including Captain Andrea Catalani.

Boyd was recently named Carnival’s 2023 Entertainment Director of the Year. He has been part of the Carnival family since 2010 and has served as an entertainment director aboard several ships since 2018.
Matthew most recently led the entertainment team aboard Carnival Celebration. The company shared that he is honored to be the inaugural Entertainment Director of Carnival Jubilee and is excited to present guests with all the new entertainment offerings in development for the new ship.
