#11 Guy’s Burger Joint, Guy Fieri, Carnival Cruises
I’m sorry, did you think this list would be all fancy, hoity-toity, fine dining restaurants? We enjoy a good burger as much as the next guy, especially when that guy is chef, author, Food Network personality, and burger expert Guy Fieri. In 2011, Fieri partnered with Carnival Cruise Line to roll out Guy’s Burger Joint on nearly every ship in the fleet to offer fresh-off-the-grill specialties with hand-cut fries. The signature burgers include the “Pig Patty” (which comes with a patty made out of bacon), the “Chilius Maximus” (topped with an onion ring, secret mayo “donkey” sauce, and chili), and “The Ringer” (with Guy’s bourbon and brown sugar barbecue sauce and an onion ring). If you’re curious participating ships are the Carnival Breeze, Conquest, Fantasy, Freedom, Glory, Inspiration, Liberty, Magic, Pride, Sunshine, Triumph, Vista, and soon, the Valor. Did we mention the burger joints are located poolside? As if the shades-wearing Fieri would have it any other way.
