Carnival Cruise Line Creates Largest Guy’s Burger Ever



In celebration of National Hamburger Day this coming Sunday (May 28), Carnival Cruise Line has created a massive cheeseburger aboard Carnival Liberty today in Port Canaveral, Florida.  Created by the ship’s team of culinary artists, the gigantic sandwich is by far the largest burger at sea.

Largest Guy’s Burger Ever!

By The Numbers

  • overall weighs 300 pounds
  • measures 3.5 feet wide
  • 200 pounds of meat
  • 50 pounds of toppings
  • used 50 pounds of flour to make the bun

The delectable, mammoth culinary creation was modeled after the tasty offerings at Guy’s Burger Joint, a poolside venue that’s currently offered aboard 14 Carnival ships, including Liberty.  It’s estimated that 1,000 burgers are served each day on each ship – all complimentary and included in the cruise fare.  That’s a whopping 5 million burgers per year!

Event Experience

The event also included a burger-making event for members of local media who learned the secrets to creating the popular hand-crafted burgers.  Participants donned Guy’s Burger Joint’s signature trucker hats and got behind the grill to experience firsthand how to create some of the venue’s popular burgers, including The Ringer topped with barbecue sauce and an onion ring, and Chilius Maximus smothered with homemade chili.

Carnival Cruise Line Adds Photo Packages



As much as passengers love having their pictures taken around the ship — especially on formal night! — they’ve always hated how expensive it can be to buy those photographs. This week, Carnival Cruise Line has rolled out photo packages designed to make it at least a little bit cheaper to bring home the images of those special moments.

How Much The Packages Cost

Now available for pre-cruise purchase in the Fun Shops, there are three different packages for cruisers to choose from, all of which offer significant savings over buying individual photos while on board. The packages break down as follows:

  • Pixels: This package offers prints of 5 of your best photographs, plus 1 16” by 20” canvas portrait at a cost of $99.99.
  • Pixels Plus: With this package, you can choose as many of your favorites as you like and have them printed at a cost of $199.99.
  • Pixels Plus Digital: This option offers you all of the prints of your favorite photographs, plus a souvenir USB stick containing high-resolution digital versions of the pictures, and runs $249.99.

Although all three packages must be purchased in advance in order to take advantage of the discount, those picking the Pixels option have until the final sea day of their voyage to pick the five prints they want to have made. Passengers who purchase a package will receive a Pixels gift ticket, which will be left in their stateroom. That ticket can then be taken to the photo gallery for redemption (which must be done within two days of boarding).

Not All Photos Are Included

There are, of course, exceptions and restrictions, although generally speaking, the packages do include all of the candid and posed shots taken by the ship’s photographers. But photos of people not staying in your stateroom aren’t included, nor are photos of large groups (such as those that might be taken for weddings or other special events) or generic ship images. If your group does a private photo shoot (or wants additional prints), those come at an extra charge. And it’s important to note that once you’ve disembarked, the photos will no longer be available!

Carnival Horizon Will Have Live Music in Steakhouse



As the countdown to Carnival Horizon’s spring arrival continues, new details are emerging every day about what passengers can expect on the fleet’s newest ship. This week, it was revealed that Horizon will introduce a new twist to the line’s popular steakhouse.

What Will Be Different

This morning, Carnival’s Brand Ambassador, John Heald, announced on his Facebook page that guests dining at Fahrenheit 555 — aka the line’s branded, for-fee steakhouse —will be treated to live piano music during dinner hours, which typically run from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Many people at first wondered if this meant there would be two piano-centric venues onboard Horizon, but as it turns out, deck five’s layout is a bit different on this ship than on her sister ship, the Vista, and it is this small difference actually winds up making the dinnertime entertainment possible: On Vista, the steakhouse is across the hall from the piano bar, while on Horizon, the two are side-by-side. The two venues will be separated by a watertight door which, during the dinner hour, will be opened so that a pianist can play classical music to entertain guests.

And no, guests needn’t fear that if they are lingering over a late dinner at the steakhouse, the atmosphere will suddenly turn raucous when the piano bar opens. As Heald explained, “If anyone is still dining in the steakhouse at 10 p.m. or whenever we open the piano bar, we will close the door, the piano bar will open, and the steakhouse is closed off again.”

About Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse

Carnival Cruise Line recently started revamping the steakhouse menus across the fleet to add items such as pork belly, fresh oysters, crab risotto, prime beef and a new dessert called Table Art where the chef designs your dessert in front of you.

The steakhouse is currently priced at $35 per guest, with the kid’s menu offered at $10.

Carnival Cruise Line Opens Panorama Bookings



If you’re the type of cruiser who looks forward to being among the first to board a new ship, this is your lucky day: Carnival Cruise Line is now accepting bookings for their newest ship, the Carnival Panorama.

What We Know About The New Ship

Although the ship won’t begin sailing until the end of 2019, people are already getting excited…especially since this will be the first new Carnival cruise ship to be based on the West Coast in over two decades! Better still, the Panorama be sailing out of a re-opened and expanded terminal in Long Beach, California. “The West Coast is an important market with vast growth potential,” said the line’s President, Christine Duffy, at an event back in February, adding that they were “very much looking forward to having Carnival Panorama homeported” on the West Coast.

Panorama will be the third Vista-class ship — joining sisters Vista and Horizon — and will continue to expand on the idea of allowing passengers to get as close to the sea as possible. Like her sister ships, Panorama will feature the innovate SkyRide (think of it as riding a bicycle through the clouds) and many restaurants which will offer both indoor and outdoor seating. It will also feature the wildly popular Havana section. And while Carnival promises that Panorama will also feature “innovations unique to” the ship, details about those will be released at a later date.

Where is Carnival Panorama Going? 


But for many cruisers, those details aren’t necessarily important… they want to know two things: Where is the ship sailing, and when can I take her for a spin? And this week, that information finally became available as Carnival released the initial itineraries Panorama will be sailing… even as she’s in the very early stages of construction!

Once the ship arrives in Long Beach, her first voyage will be a one-time-only three-day cruise from Long Beach to Ensenada from December 11 to the 14th (keep in mind, this is in 2019). After that, Panorama will be doing a three-port, seven-day itinerary departing every Saturday. Her first stop will be Cabo San Lucas, followed by Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta.

As of now, the Mexican Riviera itinerary is the only one listed for the ship, although the possibility of her eventually doing other runs out of Los Angeles are wide open. She could even do an Alaska run, such as the 14-day Carnival Journeys trip offered out of Long Beach on the Carnival Splendor.  Interestingly, Carnival Panorama will go straight from the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy to Long Beach, making this the first time the cruise line has not offered a transatlantic voyage in years.

The New Long Beach Cruise Terminal

The state-of-the-art terminal was completed in just 10 months and now allows for 100% utilization of the site’s massive geodesic dome. Thanks to the renovations nearly doubling the space to 146,000 square feet, it also now boasts 34 check-in counters and a seating for 1,584 guests. Most importantly, Long Beach is now a two-way terminal, meaning it can operate both embarkation and debarkation at the same time.

“Carnival Panorama promises to be a spectacular addition to our fleet and we’re delighted to provide our guests with an opportunity to be among the first to sail” on her, Duffy said.

Bookings for Carnival Panorama are now open by contacting your travel agent or heading over to
