What do you think of the new 2021 menus?


Recommended Posts

I've sailed on quite a few Carnival ships in the last few years and the menu doesn't look very different to me at all. There are still plenty of choices for me.

stupid question but will ask...

 

can you still get more than one entree? love when there is two vegetarian options that are good. (the grilled tofu is amazing )

You always used to be able to order up but, I read a post from a recent cruiser that said they were clamping down. I think things will loosen up after they get a few cruises under their belts.

Yes. I know I did. Just ask.

As someone who recently had heart 💔 surgery, I find it intriguing that you can get bacon 🥓 drippings with your bread 🍞 in the MDR. 🙄

The food is so expensive.  They had to make cuts here.  I for one anticipated this. However,  I would rather have less selections of higher quality then a larger menu of lesser… Hopefully they take advantage and step up the overall dining experience.  Less, is sometimes more…

After the bumpy start up hiccups when cruising returns fully the drippings will be presented tableside through an i.v. drip 😉

I am basically ok with the menus and usually find something I like.  That said, I wish Carnival would also give each ship's chef a little more latitude to be creative and offer one or two specials unique to that kitchen, based on what is seasonally available, in addition to the standard menu of American and Americanized European food.  I would love to see a couple more recipes from the home countries of various people working in the kitchen, many of whom may be from East Africa, Southeast Asia, various regions of India, Eastern Europe, Latin America etc, each of which has its own rich food culture.  I know there is one Indian vegetarian option but it seems to be the same thing every day on every ship.

Agreed!  Quality of quantity all the way for me.

Do mind sharing which ship?  DH and I love longer sailings and New Orleans is the best. Plus on a 14 day I could try more things on the new menu. 

 

I'm on the Carnival Glory out of New Orleans...Sunday November 28th. It goes all the way to Aruba, Bonaire, etc.

Can't achieve less quantity to raise quality when some people would order 3 to 4 appetizers,  entrees followed by multiple desserts per person every night. I actually witnessed one family who did this for 7 nights. Totally blew my mind.

Dang it, Lobster night on Day 2 now?! We booked the steakhouse that night. Wonder if it's worth rescheduling to another night?

Probably worth it to reschedule if you can.  Then you can have lobster on multiple nights in the dining room and steakhouse.  I would reschedule because I do enjoy the unlimited Lobster along with the prime rib in the dining room.  🦞🥩

I'm sorry but I couldn't eat a thing knowing your nose is in my plate at every meal. It just seems unsanitary!

 

Do you have nothing else going on in your own life that you have to focus on how other people spend their vacations and what they choose to do to enjoy themselves?

Um, it is easy to observe if:

 

They are at your table

or

At a nearby table in your line of sight and within earshot

 

It doesn't take stealthy Sherlock Holmesian detective work or sly private investigator wire-tapping to observe painfully obvious overconsumption.

I assume you can still order as much as you want, so all the breads!  I'd like to try them all. 

But it looks like a more limited selection each night.
