No matter what sort of cruise you are on, some things are included in the price package – like food. While some of the fancier establishments come with an upcharge, like Fahrenheit 555 on the Carnival Breeze, many are part of the experience.
The Carnival Breeze offers a lot of food, and we tried out some of the offerings on board during our sea days.
This lovely lunch option is hosted in the Cucina del Capitano. You are given a printed from upon which you mark your choices of pasta, sauce, meats, and vegetables. What comes back to you is nothing short of delicious.
That’s right – Guy Fieri has a burger joint on several of the Carnival line ships. Not only was the staff great about leaving the buns off, the condiments bar had bacon and sautéed mushrooms in addition to lettuce, tomato, pickles and onions, mayo mustard, ketchup, chipotle mayo, and a list of hot sauces and salsas.
Step right up and pick your veggies and noodles, putting however much you like in a bowl. give it to the chef who will cook it up in a wok for you, adding your meat or meats of choice, and your choice of mild, medium or hot sauce. What he hands back to you is a steaming bowl of customized stir-fry that made our day.
While not BBQ in the Texas sense, this was some wholesome chow served grilled or chilled as tradition calls for.
We also breakfasted at the BlueIguana Cantina, nibbled a bit of Pirate Pizza, took in all day meals in the Lido Marketplace, and partook of the Seaday Brunches in the Blush dining salon. Some meals were decidedly better than others, but very little let us down.
