(1 p.m. EDT) -- Add Carnival Imagination to the long list of ships to receive Carnival's Fun Ship 2.0 dining, bar and entertainment enhancements.
The multimillion-dollar refurbishment, slated for September 4 through 26, will include the addition of Guy's Burger Joint, serving burgers created by Guy Fieri; the RedFrog Rum Bar, featuring Carnival microbrew ThirstyFrog Red and, of course, rum; BlueIguana Cantina, which offers freshly made Mexican fare; the BlueIguana Tequila Bar, a complement to RedFrog; the Alchemy Bar, where passengers can order bespoke cocktail elixirs from bartenders in white lab coats via iPad menus; and Cherry on Top, an onboard candy store that also sells special occasion treats.
The addition of these enhancements to Carnival Imagination means nearly 80 percent of the Carnival fleet has had a 2.0 facelift.
After its refurbishment, the ship will continue sailing three- and four-night Baja cruises from Long Beach in Los Angeles.
