Years ago, when you went on a cruise, you could expect to find the same standard drinks at every venue. A daiquiri, pina colada, maybe a mojito if they were adventurous with their menus. Today, you’ll find a much more varied offering. Craft beers, premium spirits, and carefully crafted cocktails…it’s a whole new game. Carnival Cruise Line, in particular, diversified their drink offering and has a custom drink menu for almost every bar on their ships. That’s pretty impressive, considering that a ship can have 10 – 15 bars.
Below you’ll find the bar menus found on the Carnival Cruise Line’s ships. Carnival has a pretty robust beverage program and usually has different drinks available at nearly every bar on a ship, so you’ll see a ton of drink options below. For drinks offered at multiple venues, the prices are consistent (i.e., a Coors Light and the Atrium Bar will cost the same as a Coors Light at the Pool Bar).
When looking at the prices, remember to consider gratuities. Carnival automatically adds an 18% gratuity added to all beverage purchases.
Carnival Drink Package
Carnival has a drink package available called “Cheers.” It will cover most of the drinks you see below. You can read more about the program here: All You Need To Know About Carnival’s Cheers Package.

Alchemy Bar Drink Menu
Alchemy Bar is Carnival’s signature high-end cocktail bar. It’s an excellent place for pre- or post-dinner drinks. Here, experienced bartenders whip up some delicious, hand-crafted cocktails. This bar is on almost every Carnival ship (except the Carnival Venezia and Carnival Firenze). Our favorite cocktails here are the Cucumber Sunrise and the Chipotle Pineapple Martini
Amari Bar Drink Menu
The Amari Bar is an elevated, Italian-themed cocktail bar currently only available on the Carnival Venezia. Amari Bar replaces the popular Alchemy Bar and but still features 5 of that bar’s more popular cocktails.
Atrium Bar Drink Menu
This bar is available on most Carnival cruise ships. While it has different names, this menu is typically found at the bar in the ship’s lobby or atrium. You can also find this menu in most of the dining rooms.
Bar 820 is the indoor/outdoor bar located on the Carnival Celebration (it replaces the Bar Della Rosa on Mardi Gras). They specialize in cocktails with a distinct Miami twist and are made with Miami-sourced ingredients.
Bar Della Rosa
Bar Della Rosa can be found exclusively on the Carnival Mardi Gras. It’s an inside/outside bar with Italian-themed cocktails.
Blue Iguana Tequila Bar Menu
The Blue Iguana Tequila Bar is a pool-side bar located by the Lido Pool on almost every Carnival ship except for the Mardi Gras, Celebration, and Venezia.
Bonsai Sushi Cocktail Menu
Bonsai Sushi is the place to go if you’re looking for fresh sushi on a Carnival cruise. While you’re there, have one of these specialty cocktails. Unfortunately, cocktails are unavailable on Ecstasy, Elation, Freedom, and Miracle as they have a Bonsai Sushi Express, not a dedicated restaurant.
Brass Magnolia Bar Menu
Brass Magnolia is a New Orleans-themed themed bar located in the French Quarter Zone on the Carnival Mardi Gras.
Carnevale Bar & Lounge Drink Menu
Carnevale Bar & Lounge replaces the Havana Bar found on the Vista-class ships. It’s inspired by the Carnevale di Venezia, an annual festival held in Venice. Guests will find live music and fine Italian wines and cocktails. It’s currently only available on the Carnival Venezia.
Casino Bar Drink Menu
The Casino Bar can currently be found on most Carnival ships except for the Horizon, Vista, and Panorama where they were removed (learn more here).
ChiBang Wine List and Cocktail Menu
ChiBang is an included specialty restaurant on the Carnival Mardi Gras, Carnival Celebration and soon to the the Carnival Jubilee. It serves Chinese and Mexican dishes, so you’ll see some interesting cocktail choices here.
Cucina del Capitano Wine List
Cucina del Capitano is Carnival’s signature Italian specialty restaurant. It’s available on many ships across the fleet (see here for full list).
Emeril’s Bistro 1396 Drink Menu
Fahrenheit 555 Wine List and Cocktail Menu
The steakhouse is a staple on almost every Carnival cruise ship. On the newer ships, it’s called Fahrenheit 555. On older ships, it may have a different name, like “David’s Steakhouse,” but the drink menus are similar.
Golden Jubilee Bar
The Golden Jubilee is a new bar that pays tribute to Carnival’s 50 years of sailing. It’s available exclusively on Carnival Celebration in the 820 Biscayne zone.
Fortune Teller Bar
The Fortune Teller Bar is beautifully themed with some truly unique and out-of-this-world cocktails. It’s available exclusively on the Carnival Mardi Gras in the French Quarter zone.
Frizzante Bar Drink Menu
Frizzante is a new bar that specializes in bubble drinks and beverages on the Carnival Venezia. It’s located outside the new specialty restaurant and around the corner from the Gondola Lounge (Ocean Plaza on Vista-class ships). It offers bubbles, spritzes, and draft beers. Throughout the day, it also offer specialty coffees and biscotti.
Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse and Brewhouse Drink Menu
This bar may be confusing because Carnival uses odd naming for their venues. While many ships have “Guy’s Pig & Anchor BBQ,” few have the actual Smokehouse and Brewhouse, which has cocktails. The Smokehouse/Brewhouse is a sit-down restaurant with a large bar serving some great cocktails. They even have a brewery right inside this bar where they make their own beer! You can find it on the Carnival Celebration, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Mardi Gras, and Carnival Panorama.
If you’re a beer fan, I highly recommend the Brewery Tour for $30 a person. You can read more about the Carnival Pig & Anchor Brewery Tour here.
Havana Bar Drink Menu
The Havana Bar is a Cuban-themed bar located on Carnival Celebration, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Jubilee, Carnival Mardi Gras, Carnival Panorama, and Carnival Vista. The inside of the bar is home to lively music most evenings. This bar also has an exterior section, but it’s only accessible to guests staying in the Havana area.
Heroes Tribute Bar Drink Menu
The Heroes Tribute Bar and Lounge is a new venue from Carnival that honors the men and women that have served our country. You’ll find this menu on the Carnival Panorama, Carnival Radiance, and Carnival Venezia where the Heroes Tribute Bar replaces the SkyBox Sports Bar.
There is also a Heroes Lounge on the Mardi Gras and Celebration but they doesn’t have a dedicated bar; you use the bar from Guy’s Pig and Anchor Smokehouse (above).
Il Viaggio is a new “elevated” dining experience currently only available on the Carnival Venezia.
Java Blue Drink Menu
JavaBlue Cafe is the premier coffee place that’s on board about half of the Carnival ships. Ships that don’t currently have JavaBlue still have a stand-alone coffee shop under a different name but prices and beverage selection will vary.
Latitudes Bar Menu
The Latitudes Bar is dedicated to cocktails found around the world. It’s found exclusively on the Carnival Celebration in The Gateway zone.
Main Dining Room Wine List
This menu is the wine list you’ll find in most of the main dining rooms across the Carnival fleet. If you prefer a cocktail, you can usually use the Atrium Bar Menu.
Nightclub Cocktail Menu
Not all Carnival ships have a dedicated nightclub anymore. On some of the newer ships, the nightclub takes place in the multi-purpose Liquid Lounge or Limelight Lounge. You’ll usually find this menu out during the nightclub/dancing portion of the evening, after 10 pm.
Ocean Plaza Bar Drink Menu
Ocean Plaza is located on the main promenade and is a great place to grab a drink before an activity happening in Ocean Plaza or if you’d like to grab a drink and sit outside on the Lanai. This bar is on the Carnival Breeze, Carnival Dream, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Magic, Carnival Panorama, and Carnival Vista.
Piano Bar 88 Drink Menu
Every Carnival ship has a piano bar that’s hopping every night. While it might not always be named Piano Bar 88, it will have a similar drink menu to the one below. (This is the updated menu as of Mar 2023)
Punchliner Comedy Club Drink Menu
If you’re going to a Comedy Show on a Carnival ship, you have some specialty cocktails to choose from. Some ships have a dedicated “Punchliner Comedy Club” venue. On the other ones, the comedy club will take place in the Limelight Lounge or another venue with “Lounge” in its name.
Red Frog Pub
The Red Frog Pub is the Caribbean-themed indoor bar that’s located on the lower level of many Carnival ships. It’s different than the Red Frog Rum Bar which is found in the Lido Pool Deck Area. You can find it on the Breeze, Freedom, Legend, Magic, Miracle, Pride, Radiance, Splendor, Spirit, Sunshine, Sunrise, and Valor.
Red Frog Rum Bar Menu
You can find the Red Frog Rum Bar next to the Lido Pool on almost every Carnival ship (except the Venezia and Firenze). It is different from the Red Frog Pub, which is usually an inside bar on the Promenade level of the ship.
On the Mardi Gras, Celebration and Jubilee, it’s been upgraded to a two-story pool-side venue called the Red Frog Tiki bar with a slightly different menu (see below).
Red Frog Tiki Bar
The Red Frog Tiki Bar is a supersized version of the Red Frog Rum Bar that’s on most other Carnival ships. You can find this two-story venue on the Carnival Mardi Gras, Carnival Celebration, and Carnival Jubilee.
Rococo Bar Menu
The Rococo Bar is the poolside bar on the Carnival Venezia and Carnival Firenze. It takes the place of Red Frog Rum Bar on most other Carnival ships.
Rudi’s Seagrill Drink Menu
The Serenity Area is the adults-only (21+) area that’s found on every Carnival ship (you can learn more about it here). This area is also home to this bar which serves some special cocktails that are great to sip while enjoying some peace and quiet.
SkyBox Sports Bar
About half of the Carnival fleet has a SkyBox sports bar where you can watch the game on the big screen and sample one of these cocktails. You can find the SkyBox Sports Bar on the Conquest, Freedom, Glory, Horizon, Liberty, Miracle, Pride, Spirit, Radiance, Sunrise, Sunshine, Valor, and Vista.
Tides Bar Menu
The Tides Bar is the outdoor bar on the aft, or back, of the ship. It may have a different name on some ships, but it’ll be the same menu.
