Carnival Cruise Line’s shipboard breweries – RedFrog Pub & Brewery on Carnival Vista and Pig & Anchor Smokehouse Brewhouse on Carnival Horizon – have become so popular that they’ve even inspired a series of limited edition logo items available exclusively onboard the two vessels.
Introduced just last week, the only-on-Carnival swag has already become hot commodities with guests flocking to the breweries to pick up these fun and memorable vacation keepsakes. Items include RedFrog Pub & Brewery T-shirts featuring the colorful amphibian while Smokehouse Brewhouse items are tied to the line’s ParchedPig brand where guests can proclaim they’re “Hog Wild for Craft Brews.”
Carnival introduced the first brewery on a North American-based cruise ship on Carnival Vista in 2016, debuting four refreshing craft beers under the ThirstyFrog moniker and created by expert brew master Colin Presby. In 2018, the line took the concept to another level, pairing the brewery with a new barbecue restaurant developed by Food Network star and longtime Carnival partner Guy Fieri and introducing four original brews by Presby under the ParchedPig banner. Both breweries offer seasonal beers, along with brewery tours and tastings. Carnival Horizon, currently based in New York, replaces Carnival Vista on a year-round Caribbean schedule from Miami later this month. Carnival Vista repositions to Galveston to operate year-round seven-day sailings from that port.
Prices for the stickers and decals range from $2.99 to $4.99, hats are $18.99 and T-shirts are $24.99.
