The small theater consists of a stage with cozy booths and plenty of other additional seating near the stage. So, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Before the show, you can grab a drink from the small themed menu. With cocktails like the signature Punchliner and the Jokester, it’s sure to be a good night.

Piano Bar 88 (Deck 6)

Across from the comedy club is Piano Bar 88. Home to two pianists and a signature cocktail menu, this intimate lounge is adorned in metallic and black finishes. The piano is located at the forward of the lounge and the bar is set off to the side.

If you are a fan of piano lounges, you will want to stop in and request your favorite songs. And, why not grab a drink, like the Showstopper or B Sharp, to go along with the tunes.

Tropicale Bar (Deck 6)

The central bar on Deck 6 is the Tropicale Bar, named after the first Carnival ship to sport the iconic funnel. This bar serves the standard menu and is the main bar for the crowds gathering at Center Stage for the productions as well as the parties.

Right next to the bar is a large seating area with chairs and sofas. Although, they don’t offer the best views of the stage.

This bar is open until midnight most nights.

Java Blue Café (Deck 6)

Also located nearby, the Java Blue Café is your dedicated coffee shop on Carnival Celebration. This venue opens at 6 AM most mornings for cruisers to get their caffeine fix. Serving espresso-based beverages and milk shakes that are included in the Cheers drink package, you might find yourself visiting this café quite a bit.

Further, Java Blue Café serves breakfast items like breakfast sandwiches and continental pastry items. The café also serves lunch items that include sandwiches, chicken pies, empanadas, and more. There are desserts available too, but they will cost a nominal fee.

Golden Jubilee Bar (Deck 6)

Located in the Gateway Zone is a brand new bar on Carnival Celebration, the Golden Jubilee Bar. At this lounge, cruisers take a step back to the golden age of cruising. From the dark wood tones and a large central bar, to historical pieces from the cruise line’s history and live classical music, this martini bar was one of our favorite spots on the ship.

The talented and friendly bartenders are always quick to mix up some drinks from the specialty cocktail menu, with new takes on classics like the Harvey Wallbanger, a Golden Sidecar, or the tasty tiramisu martini.

Along with the artifacts from Carnival’s past scattered throughout this lounge, there’s also the Rolls Royce from the now scrapped Carnival Ecstasy positioned around the corner.

Latitudes Bar (Deck 6)

In the heart of the Gateway Zone, there is another new bar, the Latitudes Bar. This bar is meant to resemble a classic railway station. Complete with a flickering sign, it offers a signature cocktail menu featuring classic drinks from around the world, like an aperol spritz or a Caipirnha.

This area is a hub of activity, not to mention home to live music. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for the Journeys that occur here. From time traveling, to visiting exotic locales, each evening there is a different destination to visit while in the Gateway.

Aquaria Bar (Deck 7)

Serving cruisers watching the productions in Center Stage is the Aquaria Bar on Deck 7. If you are lucky enough to score some of the stadium style seating near this bar, you will have some great views of the action one deck below.

The glass mural from Carnival Victory displayed at this bar fits right in with the décor of the ship.

The Aquaria Bar serves up drinks from the standard bar menu.


Alchemy Bar (Deck 7)

Overlooking the digital screens of the Gateway, the Alchemy Bar is located on the portside of Deck 7. Unfortunately, this is not an ideal location, as this also serves as the main walkway for those passing by.

With a signature cocktail menu, the venue is still themed to resemble a 19th century apothecary. From the drink names, to the bartenders’ white coats, this bar has a unique flair.  We highly suggest you have these master mixologists stir up one of the exclusive elixirs, like the Alchemist’s Sidecar, the Cucumber Sunrise, or the Forty is the New Twenty.

Limelight Lounge (Deck 7)

Tucked away on Deck 7 is the Limelight Lounge. You might not even notice the small entrance on the portside.

This multi-use space is home to a variety of activities day and night from trivia, to family comedy shows, and karaoke. There is also a small bar located here, serving the standard drink menu.

Havana Bar (Deck 8)

Located on the starboard side of Deck 8 is the Havana Bar. This venue is open to all cruisers, and it is one of the liveliest bars on the ship. During the day, you might find dance classes or karaoke sessions. At night, live music and other activities are regularly featured in this well-themed space.

Not to mention, the Havana Bar has a signature drink menu, serving up classic Latin-inspired cocktails like Cuban coffee and mojitos.

Bar 820 (Deck 8)

Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse | Brewhouse is one of the signature restaurants on Carnival Celebration. The menu features all your BBQ favorites with a side of live music. You can choose from chicken, brisket, sausage, and more.

Even if you don’t want to dine here, you should definitely stop by the bar to grab a signature ParchedPig beer brewed right onboard the ship while enjoying the country rock band or the other activities that occur here. The menu also features some great signature cocktails, like a Bacon Manhattan.

For cruisers looking for a drink while on the outdoor promenade on Deck 8, there is the Watering Hole. This bar serves a small specialty menu including the watermelon crush and planters punch, along with signature Carnival and ParchedPig brews.

RedFrog Tiki Bar (Deck 16 & 17)

The Beach Pool is the central pool on Deck 16 and is the hub of activity during the day. The Fun Squad regularly hosts events here, like sing-a-longs, the sail away party, and more. There’s also a DJ and other musicians to keep the fun vibe going.

If you are looking to grab a cocktail while lounging poolside, you won’t have to go far to the the two-story Red Frog Tiki Bar. On both Deck 16 and 17, this bar serves a variety of boat drinks with an island inspired menu. From the Hula Girl, to the Rum Jumper, to the Zombie, there are plenty of fun drinks to sample.

The vibrant décor and theming of this bar also extends to a small, shaded seating section on the portside of Deck 16.

Tides Pool Bar (Deck 16)

The Tides Pool, located completely aft on Deck 16, provides a nice additional space besides the Beach Pool. This pool offers some amazing aft views and is surrounded by several loungers and two whirlpools.

If you are looking for a drink while lounging by this pool, there is the nearby Tides Pool Bar. This bar features a menu with classic drinks like a Bahama Mama or a Tequila Sunrise. Though, the bar itself is rather small.

Most days, the bar is open from 8 am to 8 pm.

Serenity Pool Bar (Deck 18)

Lastly, Deck 18 is home to the massive Serenity Retreat. This adults only space is one of the largest 18+ pool decks we have ever seen. With two whirlpools, one on each side of the ship, the space includes a mix of loungers, day beds, and other seating options.

Central to the Serenity Adults Only retreat is a pool, bar, and the Fresh Creations salad bar. This bar includes its own specialty drink menu, featuring sangria and other refreshing libations ideal for sipping poolside.

We found ourselves spending quite a bit of time here on Carnival Celebration.
