1. RedFrog Pub

Looking for a casual Key West atmosphere? Head over to RedFrog Pub during your cruise, and that’s exactly what you’ll find. RedFrog Pub features Caribbean cuisine, live musical performances and more. Have some friendly competition with your friends while playing foosball and sipping your drinks.

Wondering what to order? Try a pint of ThirstyFrog® Red, the flagship brew of the pub. Leaning toward something more tropical? Order the RedFrog Tropical Hurricane made with Bacardi Rum, exotic juices, soda, and Bacardi Oakheart Spiced Rum. Better yet, order a Fish Bowl, so you and a friend or two can enjoy a Caribbean cocktail.

2. RedFrog Rum Bar

You never have to worry about the rum being gone when you head to RedFrog Rum Bar for a round of drinks with your friends. When you come to this poolside bar for a drink or two, you can relax and bask in Caribbean comfort.

Take a break from staying busy with cruise activities, and hang out with your friends for some downtime. If you’re more in the mood for partying, you’ll love the fun vibe that this bar offers as well.

Quench your thirst with Red Rum’s Treasure, made from a not-so-secret recipe with Zaya Gran Reserva Rum and Malibu Coconut Rum. You’ll also taste guava pineapple juice and a hint of nutmeg in it.

If you need an afternoon pick-me-up, order the Ting Mojito for its refreshing minty flavor, Absolut Red Vodka and Jamaican Ting, a tasty grapefruit soda.

3. BlueIguana Tequila Bar

When you’re in the mood for Mexican drinks, there’s no better place to go onboard Carnival Magic® than BlueIguana Tequila Bar. Sit back and enjoy your tequila or margarita after cooling off in the pool right next door. If the sun still has you feeling a bit overheated, cool down with a Mexican cerveza.

While you’re at BlueIguana Tequila Bar, consider trying Blue’s ‘Corona Extra’ Michelada. This beer cocktail has a kick to it, while also being a refreshing drink. Made with Corona Extra Beer, Worcestershire, lime juice and a touch of tabasco, this drink can spice up your day.

Not in a beer mood? Try Blue’s Patrón Margarita, filled with Patrón Silver Tequila, lime juice and Patrón Citrónge. You’ll also find a menu full of other Mexican-inspired cocktails, margaritas, frozen mixed drinks, and more.

4. Alchemy Bar

Step back in time and explore vintage cocktails at Alchemy Bar. If you’re tired of the usual mix of cocktails and other drinks at bars, you can count on being able to try something new here. Alchemy Bar has the right elixir to lift your spirits or add some excitement to your cruise experience.

Stop by and order a Quick Fix made with Pernod Absinthe, Bacardi Rum, and other ingredients for an instant mood booster. Need more energy? Get back on your feet and dance the night away after enjoying a Revved Up Mojito Martini filled with Bombay Sapphire Gin, Dry Vermouth, mint, lime juice and syrup.

Alchemy Bar also lets you order custom drinks. If you have a certain drink in mind, just let the bartender know, and you’ll have it in your hand in no time.

5. Piano Bar

Sing or hum along to your favorite tunes while sipping on a cocktail at the Piano Bar. This bar doesn’t just get its name from the resident piano player onsite. The bar has a piano theme going overall, including black and white striped countertops.

Whether you’re looking for somewhere fun to have a drink or two after a long day of cruise activities, or you want to spend hours into the night hearing popular piano tunes, Piano Bar is the place to be.

As you might have expected, the drinks at Piano Bar have fun and clever musical names. Order a Ragtime filled with Peach Schnapps, Bacardi Oakheart Spiced Rum, grenadine and cranberry juice.

Or you can try a Show Stopper made with Absolut Citron, strawberry purée, champagne and lime juice. No matter what drink you order, you’ll have a great time tapping along to the music while enjoying your cocktail.
