Guy Fieri 's Pig and Anchor Bar-B-Que now on board select Carnival Cruise Ships

Some delicious exciting news came out of Port Canaveral yesterday! Carnival Cruise Line and the Canaveral Port Authority welcomed the Carnival Magic to the Space Coast. I had an opportunity to tour the ship and see the amazing multi-million-dollar refurbishments made. While on board, we also attended the official grand opening of Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse designed by Food Network star Guy Fieri!
We were a lucky group, one of the first to try out the delicious BBQ at Pig & Anchor and I am here to say, in true Guy Fiere fashion, Holy BBQ batman, this BBQ was off the hook. I tried the pulled pork (delicious), sausage (amazing w/ a bit of heat), southern macaroni and cheese (um hello, don't they know we wear bathing suits on board - ranger danger), collard greens that would make my Grandma proud and baked beans. There was also an array of sauces to choose from.
 The Captain and his crew, along with officials from Carnival and the Carnival Port Authority gave us a unique take on a ribbon cutting - they carved a massive, six-foot-long pulled pork sandwich. Now, that's a sandwich!
Of course there was no way I would let this sandwich go to waste without taking a photo of it myself.

Here is the Pig and Anchor menu, which is available for lunch in an open-air spot (this comes at no additional cost to your cruise)

I gave two of the sauces a try - Spicy Sriracha BBQ and Carolina #6. I went in thinking the Sriracha would be my favorite but the Carolina #6 won my vote. It was the perfect mixture of vinegar and spice.

 There's that evilly delicious Mac Daddy Mac n Cheese. Bikini's be afraid. Very afraid.

Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse isn't the only addition made during the renovation - you will also be able to enjoy the Alchemy Bar, the RedFrog Rum Bar, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, BlueIguana Cantina Mexican eatery and Guy’s Burger Joint (also designed by Guy Fieri).

Carnival Magic is the newest Carnival ship out of Port Canaveral, joining Carnival Victory and Carnival Valor on year-round departures from the Space Coast. I look forward to sharing some information on this amazing ship over the next week so stay tuned!
