Beer lovers, rejoice! If you’re looking for a beverage twist on your honeymoon, Carnival Cruise Line’s newest ship, Carnival Vista, is home to the first craft brewery on a North American–based cruise ship. Colin Presby, brew master at the Carnival Vista’s RedFrog Pub & Brewery, does it all, from brewing hand-crafted beers at sea to creating new seasonal brews for guests.
In partnership with Concrete Beach Brewery, a Miami-based brewery, and Alchemy & Science, RedFrog brews three Carnival-exclusive beers year-round: ThirstyFrog Port Hoppin’ IPA, ThirstyFrog Caribbean Wheat and FriskyFrog Java Stout. Of the ThirstyFrog Carribean Wheat, Presby says, “It’s refreshing and lightly spicy with hints of orange, and most importantly, always fresh. Caribbean Wheat is my ideal ‘sit-outside-on-a-hot-day’ beer. And we certainly have our share of hot days as we cruise around the Caribbean!”
As for prices, tickets are currently starting at $364 per person for a 4-day trip to the Eastern Caribbean aboard the Carnival Vista.
