The Carnival Fascination cruise ship will undergo a multi-million-dollar dry dock that will add a variety of popular food and beverage innovations, Carnival announced this week.

These will include Guy’s Burger Joint, developed by Food Network Star Guy Fieri; the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar, BlueIguana Cantina Mexican eatery and a Bonsai Sushi Express venue.

“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 Nov. 30.

Other additions will include RedFrog Rum Bar, a poolside water holl offering Caribbean rum-based drinks and beers, including Carnival’s own private label draught brew, ThirstyFrog Red; and Cherry on Top, with an array of candy, gifts, novelties, custom apparel and more.

The spaces will be added during a two-week dry dock taking place Feb. 4-17, 2018, in Freeport, Bahamas, prior to the ship resuming its year-round schedule of seven-day southern Caribbean cruises from San Juan, Puerto Rico, beginning Feb. 18, 2018.

Carnival Fascination is currently being chartered to FEMA to house relief workers in St. Croix.
