Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Fascination ship has returned to San Juan, Puerto Rico for a year-round schedule of Caribbean cruises.
The ship recently underwent an “extensive” multimillion-dollar dry dock that added a host of new food and beverage concepts, according to the company.
The newly-added concepts include Guy’s Burger Joint, a poolside venue developed with celebrity chef Guy Fieri; the RedFrog Rum Bar, the Mexican eatery BlueIguana Cantina and the vintage-themed Alchemy Bar.
The upgrades also added Cherry on Top, a candy shop, and Bonsai Sushi Express.
Carnival Fascination sails week-long cruises around the Caribbean departing on Sundays, with stops in ports of call including Saint Lucia, Barbados, St Kitts, St Thomas and St Maarten.
“We’re delighted that the Carnival Fascination has returned to year-round sailing from San Juan better than ever with a wide range of great new dining, beverage and retail options for our guests to enjoy,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
Prior to its dry dock, Carnival Fascination had been stationed in St Croix to house relief workers.
