Carnival Reveal Which Ship Is About To Undergo Exciting Multi-Million Dollar Dry Dock

Carnival Reveal Which Ship Is About To Undergo Exciting Multi-Million Dollar Dry Dock

Carnival Cruises has just announced that their ship, Carnival Fascination, will undergo an extensive multi-million-dollar dry dock.

The refurb will launch a variety of popular food and beverage innovations which will be added during a two-week dry dock taking place February 4th-17th 2018 in Freeport, The Bahamas, before the ship resumes its year-round schedule of seven-day southern Caribbean cruises from San Juan, Puerto Rico, beginning February 18th 2018.

“We can’t wait for our guests to experience these exciting new features aboard Carnival Fascination when she returns to her year-round homeport of San Juan early next year,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, adding that other Carnival ships began visiting San Juan as a port of call November 30th.

The new onboard options aboard the ship will include:

-Guy’s Burger Jointa complimentary poolside venue developed in partnership with Food Network personality, Guy Fieri, serving hand-crafted burgers and fresh-cut fries enjoyed amidst a décor that celebrates the chef’s California roots and love of car culture

-RedFrog Rum Bar: a poolside watering hole offering the quintessential Caribbean vacation vibe with Caribbean rum-based frozen drinks and beers, including Carnival’s own private label draught brew, ThirstyFrog Red

-BlueIguana Cantina: a free-of-charge poolside Mexican eatery with authentic freshly made burritos and tacos on homemade tortillas, as well as an elaborate toppings and salsa bar

-BlueIguana Tequila Bar: a festive outdoor bar offering a laid-back Mexican-themed atmosphere and tequila-based frozen drinks and beers

-Cherry on Top: a gateway to the joys of simple indulgences with bins of bulk candy, fun-and-fanciful gifts, just-because novelties, and colorful custom apparel

-Alchemy Bar: a vintage-themed cocktail pharmacy that offers a unique experience with mixologists who prescribe concoctions from different elixirs and ingredients or guests’ own custom-created cocktails

-Bonsai Sushi Express: the success of the full-service Bonsai Sushi restaurants has spawned this casual, convenient yet equally tasty offshoot featuring a mouth-watering array of sushi, sashimi, and rolls

The new options will compliment popular attractions like the WaterWorks aqua park featuring a 300-foot-long Twister slide, Seuss at Sea operated exclusively with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, and myriad entertainment choices including the Punchliner Comedy Club.

Carnival Fascination’s year-round schedule from San Juan boasts week-long sailings to five Caribbean islands:  St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Thomas and St. Maarten.
