This past weekend, Carnival Dream began a two-week dry dock  that will add two new bars – RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar – along with Cherry on Top, a retail outlet specializing in confections, custom apparel and other merchandise.

As indicated in the photo above, workers have already begun the process of preparing the Carnival Dream’s Lido Deck for the addition of the two new poolside watering holes which are part of Fun Ship 2.0, a $500 million enhancement program that is adding a number of exciting innovations across the line’s fleet.

RedFrog Rum Bar offers the quintessential Caribbean vibe, with refreshing Caribbean rum-based frozen drinks and beers, including Carnival’s private label draft brew, ThirstyFrog Red. Just across the deck will be BlueIguana Tequila Bar, providing a laid-back Mexican-themed atmosphere offering delicious tequila-based frozen drinks and Mexican beers.  Cherry on Top celebrates the joys of simple indulgences with bins of bulk candy, fun-and-fanciful gifts, just-because novelties, colorful custom apparel and more.

These new options complement the wide variety of on-board features available on Carnival Dream, including an expansive WaterWorks aqua park, an indoor/outdoor café/live entertainment venue called Ocean Plaza, and The Lanai, a half-mile wraparound outdoor promenade with whirlpools that extend out over the ship’s sides.

Following the dry dock, Carnival Dream is scheduled to resume its year-round seven-day Caribbean schedule from Port Canaveral, Fla., Sept. 22.
