BlueIguana Cantina on Carnival Cruise Line (Plus Menu)

By Erica Silverstein
Cruise Critic Senior Editor

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 22, 2018


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.

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.

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. Fall foliage enthusiasts, for instance, will find September and October the best time to take that Canada/New England cruise, whereas water sports-lovers (and families) much prefer to sail the region in the summer when school is out and 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.
