Craving Mexican for lunch -- or even breakfast? BlueIguana Cantina is Carnival's poolside Mexican venue that's perfect for tasty food and short lines.

Updated March 5, 2020

Ambiance

The cantina doesn't have its own space but occupies a corner of the pool deck, near the buffet entrance. Order your food from the main counter, then hit up the salsa bar for toppings. The cantina has its own alfresco dining area with wooden benches decorated with colorful tiles and rainbow balusters.

Meals

BlueIguana serves huevos rancheros (fried eggs on tortillas with beans and meat), breakfast burritos and arepas (corn pancakes with melted cheese inside) at breakfast. Many people don't realize it's open for breakfast, so lines can be short, especially early in the cruise. At lunchtime, order fish, chicken or pork tacos or burritos with a number of filling options.

7 Dumbest Cruise Mistakes Ever
We've all been there: almost getting your Romanian spouse forcibly debarked -- and expatriated; sprinting through the St. Thomas jungle to catch your departing ship; eating three of Guy Fieri's 1,000-calorie burgers in one sitting. Perhaps not, but as Bram Stoker wrote in Dracula, "We learn from failure, not from success!" What has failure taught Cruise Critic's editors and contributors when it comes to cruising? Do your homework on visa requirements, and triple check that you know how to get where you're embarking. Be careful what you eat and what you book. Read our seven mini-stories of supreme stupidity, have a laugh at our expense, and vow never to make the same mistakes.
Best Time to Cruise
It's one of the most common cruising questions: When is the best time to cruise Alaska, Australia, the Caribbean, Canada/New England, Hawaii, Europe or the South Pacific? The answer depends on many variables. For example, fall foliage enthusiasts will find September and October the best time to cruise Canada/New England, whereas families prefer to sail in summer when temperatures are warmer for swimming. The best time to cruise to Alaska will vary depending on your preferences for viewing wildlife, fishing, bargain-shopping, sunshine, warm weather and catching the northern lights. For most cruise regions, there are periods of peak demand (high season), moderate demand (shoulder season) and low demand (low season), which is usually the cheapest time to cruise. High season is typically a mix of when the weather is best and popular travel periods (such as summer and school holidays). However, the best time to cruise weather-wise is usually not the cheapest time to cruise. The cheapest time to cruise is when most travelers don't want to go because of chillier temperatures or inopportune timing (too close to holidays, the start of school, etc.). But the lure of cheap fares and uncrowded ports might make you change your mind about what you consider the best time to cruise. As you plan your next cruise, you'll want to take into consideration the best and cheapest times to cruise and see what jibes with your vacation schedule. Here's a when-to-cruise guide for popular destinations.
