Alchemy Bar, Carnival’s vintage-themed cocktail ‘pharmacy’, serves up a dose of rest and relaxation with every cocktail. Just ask MKR’s Mick and Jodie-Anne, who learned all about the ship’s favourite bar when they went onboard.

Take the cucumber sunrise - a proven crowd-pleaser! This signature drink is bright and fresh, stimulating every passenger who take a sip to stay cool as a cucumber. Even if you’re not a master of making cocktails, like the mixologists at Alchemy Bar, you can take a tip from Mick and Jodie-Anne who have created their own recipe, inspired by their time on board.
