If you are sailing aboard Carnival, then the chances are good your ship will have the BlueIguana Tequila Bar. The popular hangout serves up a variety of “boat drinks” — fruity concoctions that are perfect for sipping poolside. As well, a full complement of beers and tequila are also available.
For your convenience, we’ve rounded up the complete menu with both pictures and prices to give you an idea of what you can expect. You can click on each image to enlarge, or we also have the entire menu written out below.

The Story of Blue
You may be asking yourself, what makes him blue? Well, some think he was born that way. But legend has it that he spent too much time in the blue agave fields soaking up the spirit of tequila.
You may also be asking yourself how an iguana finds a pair of purple sunglasses… that fit. Or how he’s the mascot of a Mexican-themed tequila bar. Let’s just say it boils down to on memorable trip to Cozumel, Mexico. I suppose that’s where the agave fields come in. But you’ll have to buy Blue a drink to hear the full story.
Until then, welcome to his new home: the BlueIguana Tequila Bar. Before long, you’ll be looking for a pair of purple shades, too.
