Carnival Celebration to feature Miami-themed zone

Article-Carnival Celebration to feature Miami-themed zone

Aboard Carnival Celebration, 820 Biscayne will be in the same location as La Piazza on sister ship Mardi Gras
Carnival Celebration will sport a Miami-themed zone named after the address of Carnival Cruise Line's original headquarters, 820 Biscayne.

The new ship is scheduled to make its home at PortMiami starting in November.

On Deck 8, in the same location as La Piazza on sister ship Mardi Gras, 820 Biscayne will feature a similar layout and venues but with influences and design elements that reflect the urban-meets-laid-back Miami vibe.

Bringing Miami food and beverage offerings to the fleet, 820 Biscayne will feature an indoor-outdoor retro-inspired bar, a deli and pizza by the slice.


A 'vintage cool' design for Bar 820

Bar 820 promises 'vintage cool' design with grab-and-go Cuban and specialty coffees for early risers and Miami-inspired tropical frozen drinks and creative martinis day and night.

Deco Deli is designed as a nod to Miami’s Art Deco fame with colorful fonts and signage. Besides classic deli sandwiches, there will be an expanded menu that also highlights Miami staples including the Cubano (pork, ham, swiss cheese and mustard), a croqueta sandwich (ham and cheese croqueta, shaved ham and pickles) and pan con lechón (slow cooked pulled pork, melted onion and mojo sauce) — all on Cuban bread.

Miami Slice will continue Carnival's 24-hour pizza offering in a walk-up spot with hand-tossed, fresh-from-the-oven slices amid a contemporary and vibrant décor reminiscent of the late-night eateries on Miami Beach's Ocean Drive.

Elements of Miami's past and present

Throughout the Miami zone there will be elements from the city's past and present including artwork and photo opportunities like posing with flamingos on skateboards.

'Miami has been our home for 50 years, and in bringing a brand new ship to its port, we wanted to show some extra love to the city that helped us become who we are today,' Carnival President Christine Duffy said.

Added Ben Clement, SVP newbuilds, refurbishment and product innovation: 'Miami is a one-of-a-kind city with many different sides to it, so we tried to capture all of that in 820 Biscayne – from the tropical feel and original Art Deco designs that can still be found on Miami Beach today to the modern city look of Brickell – and of course, with a huge emphasis on the delicious flavors throughout.'

Rudi's Seagrill and redesigned Cucina del Capitano

The zone will also have Rudi’s Seagrill, introduced on Mardi Gras, and Cucina del Capitano, which will be redesigned with a new look and feel that reflects the sleek and airy restaurants often found in Miami, as well.
