Before Carnival Fascination returns to service from San Juan following its current charter for hurricane relief, the ship will be getting new food and beverage outlets in a two-week dry dock.

Those include poolside venues Guy’s Burger Joint, developed with Food Network star Guy Fieri; BlueIguana Cantina for burritos and the RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar.

Other new venues are the cocktail pharmacy-themed Alchemy Bar and Bonsai Sushi Express for sushi, sashimi and rolls. A Cherry on Top sweets shop will be installed, too.

All these spots will be added during the Feb. 4-17 docking at Grand Bahama Shipyard.

After that, Carnival Fascination is set to resume weekly southern Caribbean cruises from San Juan beginning Feb. 18. The year-round cruises visit St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Kitts, St. Thomas and St. Maarten.

The ship is currently on charter to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and housing hurricane relief workers in St. Croix.

Other Carnival vessels resumed visiting San Juan on transit calls Nov. 30.
