Enjoy our Carnival cruise menu guide - among the best Carnival food information sources online! We have here sample menus on Carnival cruise ships, segmented as Dining Room menus (for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, buffet, kids/children), room-service (breakfast & the 24 hour one), Steakhouse, "The Chef's Table". The Carnival's new "Cucina Del Capitano", "Guy's Burger Joint" and "Blue Iguana Cantina" menus (available on selected ships) are worth trying. Carnival dinner menus - the "American FEAST" and "American TABLE" Carnival menus. And for the most impotant guests - Carnival kids menu. Yummy!

Carnival cruise menus 

Each of the Carnival cruise lines dining menus is a perfect example how the cheapest cruise prices should be inclusive of exotic gourmet dishes, huge diversity of Italian-American classic recipes, plus some absolutely unique Carnival food recipes inspired by some of the world's best chefs - all so delicious and all so beautifully presented. Your "Carnival food" menu guarantees the "gourmet fun experience" you deserve if you're booked on any of "The Fun" ships. CCL follows the simple maxim that your ship-board dining don't have to be frugal to be cheap, just like your ship fun don't have to be expensive to be most appreciated. And we all - as guests and clients - know that eating is a big fun too. If you are a Carnival newbie, you should know that besides being the largest, cheapest, best-and-most-fun line, your "Carnival at Sea" will really taste amazingly good! And this survey is just one of the so many proofs.

Carnival room service menu list

In early January 2018, Carnival announced that starts charging its passengers for late-night room service, The company explained that this would cut down onboard food waste,

All passengers ordering items from the room service menu between 10 pm - 6 am will be charged. Unlike most of the Carnival's competitors, the company still offers free of charge room service options between 6 am - 10 pm. The new daytime menu has both complimentary / free of charge items (salads, sandwiches, desserts, juices, teas, coffees) and extra charge items (pizza, chicken wings and tenders, fries, seafood, beverages / sodas, beers).

24-hour Carnival ROOM SERVICE menu

Note: Available by dialing 800 from your cabin, guests must be 21+ to order alcoholic drinks.

In January 2018 Carnival Cruise Line made a few changes to company's complimentary room service program offered onboard their vessels. The biggest change is that Carnival will no longer offer complimentary room service from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. each day. The cruise line will now offer expanded offering of fee-based items ranging from US$2-US$6. New options include Chicken Caesar Salad, Greek Salad, Grilled Cheese, Bacon & Tomato Sandwich, Roast Turkey Wrap and Portabella & Veggie Bun. There will also be a brand new selection of  desserts, such as Banana Split, Dark Chocolate Walnut Brownies and Doughnut Sandwich.

In addition, Carnival will no longer offer room service on the debarkation morning. Breakfast will still be offered at Lido Deck Restaurant and at cruise ships that feature Ocean Plaza. The biggest reason for the change was due to the large amount of wasted food and the fee-based menu for late night snacks should help alleviate the issue. Carnival Cruise Line's ships will continue to offer complimentary late night snacks at the delis and pizzerias onboard.
