Carnival Cruise Menus

   November 25, 2015 ,   Food & Drinks

This is CruiseMapper's complete list of CCL-Carnival Cruise Line's food menus. We have here sample menus available on the Fun Ships - fleetwide or on selected liners only. For your convenience, the following internal links jump down directly to:

You can compare also the new DINNER menus "American FEAST" and "American TABLE", as well as kids menu.

(NEW) In June 2022, CCL introduced fleetwide "Menu Mate" - a food ingredient program designed for passengers with special diets. Menu Mate is installed on touchscreen tablets (available at all food venues fleetwide) using software developed by CertiStar Inc (2017-founded by Shandee Chernow company) and now eliminates the need for passengers to inform CCL of their food allergies prior to the voyage.

(NEW) In early-July 2019, CCL announced specialty dining changes to be implemented fleetwide. As a result, passengers now can make reservations at specialty (at fee) restaurants in advance. This means they can not only pick the restaurant/s but also specific dates and times.

Previously, customers had to wait for an email confirmation of the requested dining reservation. Now they immediately lock the reservation/s into place after paying in full at cruise booking time. Dining reservations can be canceled at any time (before and after boarding) without penalties. The only exception is Chef’s Table (VIP dining package) which charges a USD 25 pp cancellation fee for cancelations within 24 hours of the reservation. Specialty dining reservations on the ship can also be made.

(NEW) Also in 2019, CCL rolled out (fleetwide) a new brunch menu of traditional fast-food favorites. The new Brunch menu is available only on sea days and includes popular food items for Breakfast (frittata, parfaits, cereals, croissants, muffins, Danish pastries, toasts, bagels, omelets, eggs benedict) and for Lunch (salads, egg salad, burgers, fried chicken, pasta, seafood / lobster benedict, crab, shrimp, tuna, salmon).

Carnival cruise food menus

Each of the CCL's dining menus is a perfect example how the cheapest cruise prices should be inclusive of exotic gourmet dishes, a huge diversity of Italian-American classic recipes, plus some absolutely unique 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.

Carnival Room Service menu (breakfast)

Note: CCL's breakfast room service menu is written on the "Rise and Shine" room service door hanger. On it, you should indicate the quantities required, along with your cabin number, number of persons, your name and the time you wish your stateroom service breakfast to be served. Hang it outside your door before 5 AM.

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 on board food waste.

All passengers ordering items from the room service menu between 10 pm - 6 am are now charged. Unlike most of CCL'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).

Starting in January 2019, CCL rolled out fleetwide a new room service menu on which all items are at extra charge. The only exception is the basic Continental Breakfast. The new menu items cost between US$2 and US$5 per item. Charges apply to lunch, dinner and late-night menu items. Salads cost between US$2 and US$3 (lemon chicken can be added at an additional US$2). Items like chicken wings, Philly cheesesteaks, and pan pizzas cost between US$4 and US$6. Sandwiches like PB&J, tuna salad, grilled cheese cost US$4. Sweet potato fries cost US$3. Side of fries costs US$2.

However, a few days later, Carnival Brand Ambassador John Heald announced that 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.

Old Room Service Menu (until 2018)

Note: The following information regards the cruise company's old room service menu.

As of December 21, 2015 - eight months after the company launched for-fee room service on three of its ships, the company is rolling the menu fleetwide. The menu charges from $1.50 to $6 for items including quesadillas, shrimp, chicken wings and tenders, pizza, cheesesteaks and sides of fries. In April 2015 Carnival introduced the new menu on the boats Conquest, Imagination and Pride, saying it would use cruise passenger feedback to determine if the up-charge offerings would be rolled out fleet-wide.

Food MenuItems
Stateroom "Continental Breakfast" menu
  • Hot and Cold Drinks for breakfast - Juices (Orange, Apple, Grapefruit, Tomato) / Freshly Brewed Coffees (regular, decaffeinated) / Hot Chocolate / Hot Tea (regular, decaffeinated) / Milk (regular, skim, chocolate)

24-hour ROOM SERVICE menu

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

In January 2018 CCL made a few changes to the company's complimentary stateroom service program offered fleetwide. The biggest change is that the company no longer offers complimentary room service between 10 pm and 6 am. The company now offers an expanded offering of fee-based items ranging from US$2-$6. New options include Chicken Caesar Salad, Greek Salad, Grilled Cheese, Bacon and Tomato Sandwich, Roast Turkey Wrap and Portabella and Veggie Bun. There is also a brand new selection of desserts, such as Banana Split, Dark Chocolate Walnut Brownies, and Doughnut Sandwich.

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

Steakhouse reservations: making reservations ahead of time is highly recommended due to the small capacity of these dining venues. Guests are also welcome to go there and be seated as per the availability. Reservations can be requested either online (prior to the sailing, go to "MY CRUISE MANAGER" on, then go to "To-Do List"/"Plan Activities") or can be made onboard - at the Steakhouse or by calling from your stateroom. Know that dates and times are on a "first come - first serve" basis. This venue is open daily from 6 pm until 9:30 pm.
