by Susan and Simon Veness

Carnival Celebration honors its homeport, PortMiami, with a new retro-inspired 820 Biscayne zone, which takes its name from the address of Carnival Cruise Line’s original headquarters.

Get that unique Miami vibe onboard Carnival Celebration as the new 820 Biscayne area opens on Deck 8, bringing the city’s urban-meets-laid-back style to sea.

Carnival Celebration 820 Biscayne features:

Bar 820 – This half inside, half outside “vintage cool” bar offers grab-and-go Cuban and specialty coffees, Miami-inspired tropical frozen drinks, and creative martinis by day and by night.

Deco Deli – Miami’s famous Art Deco district is the inspiration for this sandwich shop that features classic deli offerings with a Miami twist, such as the Cubano (pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and mustard), croqueta sandwich (ham and cheese croqueta, shaved ham, and pickles) and pan con lechon (slow cooked pulled pork, melted onion, and mojo sauce), each on Cuban bread.

Miami Slice – Walk up for a slice of fresh-from-the-oven, hand-tossed pizza, 24 hours a day. This spot will put cruisers in mind of Miami’s bustline Ocean Drive.

South Florida’s vibrant city comes through in artwork celebrating Miami’s past and present, along with photo opportunities such as 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,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line. “Carnival Celebration will celebrate all things Carnival, intertwining where we have been with where we are going, and we can’t think about where we started without thinking about Miami and all the fun that it represents.”

Favorite locations cruisers know from other ships can also be found on Carnival Celebration, including Rudi’s Seagrill on sister ship Mardi Gras, and Cucina del Capitano, which has been redesigned with a sleek and airy look that captures the Miami vibe.

“We wanted to continue to give our guests the delicious and fun offerings they know and love from Mardi Gras, but with the new identities that pay tribute to the rich culture of Miami, a city that is so special to all of us,” said Ben Clement, senior vice president of new builds, 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.”
