Carnival Jubilee, the next ship in Carnival Cruise Line’s Excel
class, will debut two new ocean-themed zones: Currents and The Shores.  

Currents, encompassing Decks 6 and 7, is a space that uses
innovative technology in new bar and dining venues and live music. When guests
step into Currents, they will be transported to underwater worlds, both
realistic and fantastical, in a space that changes from day to night and
throughout the cruise.

The portals to the sea comprise six huge LED windows, a wave-shaped
LED ceiling, theatrical show lighting and sound design. Venues in Currents

Dr.Inks, Ph.D – Eight crafty octopus
arms adorn this bar, inspired by the sea creature who spends time
philosophizing about life underwater while enjoying a tasty libation. Ocean-themed
drinks include color-changing cocktails, jellyfish and layered shots and
playful items featuring sea foam, boba pearls and garnishes.

The Golden Mermaid
This ultra-stylish lounge is home to a golden mermaid who swims the oceans to
find treasures of ancient civilizations and uncovers secret cocktail recipes.
Cocktails inspired by precious gemstones and metals are made with edible
glitter. The venue also will feature a live band.

Emeril’s Bistro 717 – The
line’s Chief Culinary Officer, renowned chef and restaurateur Emeril Lagasse,
is back by popular demand, bringing guest-favorite creole cuisine, an expansive
seafood selection and expanded raw bar. Named after Carnival Jubilee’s hull
number at Meyer Werft in Germany, Emeril’s Bistro 717 will serve breakfast with
dishes such as shrimp and grits, poached eggs and fixings, and sweet beignets. Lunch
and dinner includes seafood creations such as creole boiled shrimp, fresh
oysters, stone crab (seasonally) and lobster, as well as authentic Louisiana
cuisine featuring Emeril’s signature jambalaya, New Orleans-style barbeque
shrimp and duck and sausage gumbo. Guests can enjoy their meal while sitting
beneath LED windows and a ceiling creating an underwater dining experience.

Additional venues in Currents include guest favorites
Alchemy Bar and Carnival Kitchen.

On Deck 8, The Shores is the place where the ocean meets
land, a zone that’s inspired by piers, boardwalks and beaches. A three-deck-high
fish school art installation rises from Deck 6 all the way to Deck 8 to bring
guests up from the Currents below to the surface.

The boardwalk will have a Ferris wheel-inspired ceiling
feature, and casual seating areas, both inside and outside. Food options include
a hot pizza at Coastal Slice or a sandwich or hot dog at Beach Buns. Marina Bar
features nautical designs and lounge seating for coffee and cocktails. Rudi’s
Seagrill and Cucina del Capitano return with indoor and al fresco seating.

The other four zones of Carnival Jubilee will be the same
as the popular areas found on both Mardi Gras and Carnival Celebration, including
Grand Central, the BOLT roller coaster, and the poolside Lido. 

Carnival Jubilee first sails from Galveston on December 23,
2023, joining Carnival Breeze and Carnival Dream operating from Galveston
year-round, offering week-long Western Caribbean cruises. In 2024, Carnival
will increase its deployment in Galveston to four ships when Carnival Miracle
begins operating a new series of longer cruises from the port.
