There’s a lot to look forward to when you’re planning a cruise to the Caribbean aboard Carnival Paradise®. You’ll enjoy plenty of sunshine, amazing food and loads of hospitality. Keep in mind, however, that life’s not just about the destination. You also have to enjoy the journey!

We are proud to bring the party to you so you can enjoy the beautiful blue seas and unwind long before you even get to shore. You’ll find four very different bars aboard our ship — and all are perfect to satisfy whatever mood you’re feeling that day.

1. RedFrog Rum BarTM

True to its name, RedFrog Rum BarTM has plenty of cocktails created from Caribbean rum. After all, a cruise to the Caribbean wouldn’t be complete without a few concoctions made from this classic sugarcane spirit.

RedFrog Rum Bar is a poolside bar, which pulls in the spirit of the islands with the breezy style of easy living. It was just added in March of 2018, so it’s still got a lot of memories yet to be made. Don’t be surprised if you meet a new friend–or a few!–because this is a low-key place where people like to gather just to have a good time.

Signature Sips

You can’t stop by Red’s pad without putting the bartenders to work on one of his signature sips. Red’s Rum Treasure is a classic Caribbean cocktail with all the features of island life. Complete with flavors of guava, pineapple and a couple types of rum, this palate-pleaser is perfect for all your poolside endeavors.

If you’re looking for something that’s simply refreshing, opt for the Ting Mojito. The mint and lemonade pair perfectly with their adults-only accompaniments.

2. BlueIguana Tequila BarTM

We have you covered while you’re on your way to your tropical dream with all the tequila drinks you love. In fact, you can consider BlueIguana Tequila BarTM as another stop on your travels through paradise.

This Mexico-inspired atmosphere serves up a full menu of everything that makes south-of-the-border drinks delightful.

Rest assured, the frog isn’t the only animal that’s got a poolside seat next to all the action. Blue the Iguana also welcomes visitors who want to kick back and relax while they enjoy the fresh water of our pristine pools.

Like RedFrogTM, BlueIguanaTM was debuted on Carnival Paradise® in March of 2018. These two creatures have come together to enhance your travel experience and make sure you’ve got everything you need for a great getaway.

BlueIguana Tequila BarTM is a vacation within a vacation, so sit back and let the good times roll.

Signature Sips

If you didn’t know Mexican beer cocktails were a thing, this is your time to break out of the box and try something new. BlueIguana’s Blue Corona Extra Michelada is a spicy beer cocktail that’ll change the way you look at Corona forever. Don’t forget to add the tomato juice for an authentic experience.

Don’t feel like beer? The Blue’s Patrón Margarita has your name written all over it! It’s refreshing and citrusy.

3. America Piano Bar

You don’t have to go all-out all the time. This lounge has a laid-back feel, but it’s also got plenty of room for getting a little silly. Hey, you call the shots, we’ll make the music. That’s how it works around here. When you grab a seat around the piano, our talented musician will get to work producing the tunes that’ll get your feet tapping.

America Piano Bar opens in the evening and operates into the wee hours of the morning. Flex your vocal chords with a sing-along, or simply sit back and enjoy the company of your friends. Either way, you’re guaranteed to have a good time!

Signature Sips

If you want to see how harmony comes together in a glass, imbibe the melodious taste of Ragtime: A little spiced rum, peach Schnapps, cranberry juice and grenadine will help you sing the blues away in no time.

Of course, The Standing “O” speaks for itself if you’re a martini type of person. Order it for the name alone. Drink it for the excitement it’ll bring to your seat.
