Chow Down

By now, you should know that I am the ultimate foodie. I love, love, LOVE trying new foods and going to new restaurants. So when I boarded the Carnival Victory for my Western Caribbean cruise last week, I was super excited to try out all the food aboard the ship! There are multiple dining options onboard this ship: 24-hour room service, pizza bar, salad bar, two main dining rooms, Taste Bar, comfort kitchen, Off the Grill and more! Between all the options, I basically had 24-hour access to pizza, french fries, salad, comfort foods like hot dogs and meatloaf, ice cream swirls, chicken wings and more. YUM YUM YUM – this is my kind of food heaven!

Each day, I would wake up to some fresh fruit, coffee, fluffy pancakes and eggs. Then I’d indulge in the lunch buffet at the Lido Deck for some cheeseburgers, salad, french fries and chicken by the pool.

I was so impressed with the amount of food options aboard the ship. From handmade omelets for breakfast to delicious fried rice to BBQ chicken wings, the Carnival Victory seriously had it all.

Each night for dinner, we went to the Pacific Dining Room, one of the ship’s two main dining rooms. The set-seated dining room was filled with the cutest sea-themed décor, like stoic mermaid heads, seahorses, fish murals and more. Most of the food is included in your cruise fare, but we opted to splurge for the steak and lobster each night. The lobster was DEVINE!! I had to order it each night because I craved it so much each day!! Hats off to the chef!

One of my favorite foodie items of the ship was the 24-hour, unlimited ice cream swirl station. After a hot day lying by the pool, it was so refreshing to indulge in some ice cream each afternoon!!

The Carnival sippy cups were also a fun little treat. Each day, the ship has a special beverage that comes with a fun sippy cup. I collected two of these and boy, were the drinks DELICIOUS!! I love all things fruity so the pineapple pina colada sure was my go-to beverage for the trip.

I now understand the saying “Eat Your Heart Out” thanks to Carnival!
