(2 p.m. EST) -- Following its second dry dock in three years, Carnival Victory will emerge with another round of Carnival's now-standard Fun Ship 2.0 enhancements.

In addition to Guy's Burger Joint and BlueIguana Cantina, the pool deck area will be home to the RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, which have respectively complemented the eateries as they've rolled out across the fleet.

Other new additions include the Cherry on Top sweets shop and Bonsai Sushi Express, an abridged version of Bonsai Sushi. The deli has also been rebranded and features a new menu with seven sandwiches, such as meatball, buffalo chicken and The Cubano, along with Southwest chicken, falafel and turkey wraps.

Finally, several new cabin categories are being added to Carnival Victory, including 260-square-foot Scenic Ocean View staterooms and 320-square-foot Scenic Grand Ocean View accommodations, as well as Captain's Suites, which are spacious 820-square-foot cabins that offer a large extended balcony, two full-size bathrooms, separate sleeping quarters and a large living room.

In 2015, the ship received just a handful of Carnival's 2.0 enhancements, including Alchemy Bar and the Punchliner comedy club.

The ship will leave the current 17-day dry dock on January 21, when it will resume sailing regular three- and four-night Caribbean cruises from Miami.
