Celebrity chef Guy Fieri launches the Pig and Anchor BBQ and Smokehouse on the Carnival Magic.


Carnival are already a preferred cruise line for many cruisers who like to have a world of choice at the end of their knife and fork. With a dazzling selection of made to order pizzas, sushi, steakhouses, Italian, Mexican and Indian cuisine on board, it’s hard to think of what might just be missing from the array.

For those of you who’ve cruised with Carnival before, you’ll know that on sea days, a pop-up BBQ does appear, and the popularity of this coupled with the demand¬†for Guy Fieri’s Burger Joint on board, brought about a second collaboration; the Pig and Anchor Bar-B-Que and Smokehouse on the Carnival Magic.

Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse is a casual open-air eatery located on Carnival Magic’s Lanai on Promenade Deck featuring a wide variety of BBQ favorites smoked right on board over hickory and cherry wood using Guy’s Fieri’s signature recipes, rubs and spices. Guy Fieri is cooking up real-deal smokehouse favorites made with pork, beef, chicken, and sausage, complimented by several deliciously creative sides and signature sauces. All items at Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse will be available free of charge when the venue is open during sea days from noon to 2:30 PM.

Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse was added to Carnival Magic as part of her extensive multi-million-dollar renovation that spanned three weeks and added a variety of exciting new dining and bar concepts, including a Guy’s Burger Joint, the RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, BlueIguana Cantina, Pizzeria del Capitano, Alchemy Bar, and Cherry on Top.

Carnival Magic will continue its seven-day schedule from Galveston through April 10th, 2016 then reposition to Port Canaveral to launch year-round seven-day Caribbean cruises April 23rd, 2016. Prior to launching its new seven-day schedule from Port Canaveral, Carnival Magic will operate a special three-day cruise to Nassau April 20th – 23rd, 2016.
