Carnival Delays Room Service Change

   January 7, 2019 ,   Cruise Industry

A few days after announcing it would eliminate all-free room service policy, Carnival announced it holds back for the time being.

According to Carnival Brand Ambassador John Heald, the cruise line was “in the process of making some adjustments to that plan" to balance the interest of their guests with the efforts to reduce food waste costs. He added that for the time being then, there would be no changes until they finalize their plan.

Carnival Cruise Line has allowed all passengers to order room service up until 10:00 p.m. free of charge since January, last year, when it added a late night room service surcharge, and travelers ordering room service between 10:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m. during the voyage are charged between US$2-US$6 per item for a new menu.

The changes would have seen the cruise line move to an a la carte menu aside from continental breakfast, that was set to remain free. 

Starting in mid-January, Carnival would have offered lunch, dinner, and late-night meals for US$2-US$5 per item, including salads, pan pizzas, sandwiches, fries, wings, and cheesecakes.
