That’s the Carnival story about the RedFrog. And they’re sticking to it.

In fact, the little tree frog has made himself so at home on the cruise ship that he has his own private label draught beer, custom-brewed specially for Carnival – ThirstyFrog Red.

The first pub ever on a Carnival ship opened in May 2011 on the Magic with ThirstyFrog Red beer and the response was overwhelming.

"They ran out of beer the first day,” said Vance Gulliksen, Carnival Cruise Lines spokesman. “This is a huge huge hit for us.”

So popular has ThirstyFrog Red become that it is now served on most of the 23 Carnival ships. “Carnival is the only place you can get it,” Gulliksen said. “It’s a fun thing to do but we didn’t realize how popular the pub and the beer would be.”

The pub itself is an island-themed watering hole located on the Promenade Deck of the 3,690-passenger Magic. The décor is decidedly Caribbean meets Key West with nautical styled interiors, warm woods, vibrant tile work, portholes and images of ships at seas, plus foosball and game tables, a jukebox and live music. The 100-seat indoor-outdoor pub also serves Caribbean favorite foods.

As RedFrog himself might say – “Chill out. Live life to the fullest.”
