The new additions will include:

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

Alchemy Bar, a “cocktail pharmacy” themed lounge where mixologists “prescribe” concoctions from different elixirs and ingredients.

BlueIguana Tequila Bar, an outdoor bar offering a Mexican-themed atmosphere and tequila-based frozen drinks and beers.

Carnival Imagination provides a convenient, value-packed West Coast cruise option and with these new enhancements we’re making this fantastic ship even better,” said Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line. “With 3 year-round cruise ships sailing from Long Beach, Carnival is the #1 cruise line in Southern California and the investment we’re making to enhance the Carnival Imagination further bolsters our leadership position in this important market.”
