Back when Carnival Cruise Line announced its Fun Ship 2.0 renovation program, it introduced a new cocktail venue called Alchemy Bar. Fast forward 11+ years, and the extremely popular bar can be found on nearly every ship in the fleet.
The Alchemy Bar has an old-timey pharmacy theme, where cocktails made from fresh ingredients are referred to as “remedies” and “elixirs.” Bartenders at this venue are called “mixologists,” and they wear uniforms reminiscent of white pharmaceutical coats.
If you don’t want something from the menu, you can always share your flavor preferences with the mixologist and they’ll whip up a custom cocktail. They can also make alcohol-free concoctions as well. Cocktails are $12, and zero-proof drinks are $7.
