    Don’t hesitate to bring the whole family into Carnival Cruise Lines’ favorite burger spot: Guy’s Burger Joint.

Carnival Dining Blueiguana Cantina
  • BlueIguana Cantina
    When it comes to Mexican cuisine, there’s no authority like a blue iguana (at least Carnival’s version). There are fresh, tasty tacos and burritos that will delight your taste buds, as well as tortillas and salsa to munch on the side. With a host of salsas and sauces to choose from, this casual dining venue will have the whole family coming back for more.


Carnival dining Cucina del Capitano
  • Cucina Del Capitano
    Shout ‘ciao’ to everyday cruise cuisine with the exciting Cucina Del Capitano: a restaurant that tips its dining cap to Italian-American heritage and culinary technique. With recipes inspired by Carnival’s Italian captains’ and officers’ childhood memories, family-style service and plating and a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, you’ll feel as though you’re inside an Italian countryside villa. Complimentary casual pasta lunch is available during the day, while the full-service dinner menu comes at an extra charge.


Carnival dining Bonsai Sushi

  • Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ

Carnival dining Main Dining Room
  • Main Dining Room (Signature Dining)
    Once you’ve spent your day participating in incredible onboard activities or heading ashore for a sweet cruise excursion, it’s time to sit down and relax with the whole family at one of the delightful main dining rooms. You can choose between “Your Time Dining”, for those of you who eat whenever the mood arises, or a set dining time. Set dining times that can be chosen from are “Early Dining” (6:00PM) and “Late Dining” (8:15PM), each offering a menu filled with succulent choices.


Carnival dining Casual Dining

    Low-key diners can relish in the casual dining options onboard a Carnival Cruise Lines cruise vacation.

Each option, including 24/7 room service, is complimentary during your Carnival cruise.


Carnival dining The Taste Bar
  • The Taste Bar
    While you’re cruising to new and exciting destinations, be sure to give your taste buds the ride of their life as well.

This is the perfect way to try a delicious new appetizer before dinner—and it’s always complimentary.


Carnival dining Steakhouse
  • Steakhouse
    Book a table for you and yours at the Steakhouse onboard your Carnival cruise for some beef cooked to the perfect temperature, seafood that will make your mouth water, and so much more.

Carnival dining Pizzeria del Capitano

Carnival dining Mongolian Wok
  • Mongolian Wok
    Asian delights come in the way you choose when you visit the Mongolian Wok for some tasty cuisine any hour of the day. Pick your noodles, decide on some veggies, and select some choice meat and sauce to be sizzled and served to your apprehensive taste buds. Served 24/7, in any combo you like.
