The Carnival Inspiration, a ship that sails short cruises
year-round from Long Beach, Calif., is getting new dining and bar spaces. The
renovation will occur in Portland, Ore., from Jan. 18 to Feb 5.
When the 2,052-passenger ship resumes service, it will
have Guy’s Burger Joint (a complimentary poolside restaurant developed in
partnership with Food Network star Guy Fieri), complimentary poolside Mexican eatery BlueIguana
Cantina, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, RedFrog Rum Bar, Alchemy Bar and candy shop Cherry
The additions are part of the Carnival Fun Ship 2.0 refurbishment
program that started in 2011, in which older Carnival ships get dining
innovations that were introduced on the Magic and Breeze. The Fantasy and Valor
are slated to get the upgrades later this year.
