Everyone who sells cruises knows that it’s hard to beat the dining options and choices available on a modern cruise ship – the vast majority included in the cruise fare! We believe (and we know lots of our travel agent partners who agree with us!) that the quality of food and innovative choices on Carnival exceed many of our 5* competitors… So here are some wonderful new (and existing) food facts to whet your palette and help you to sell Carnival to your “foodie” clients!
Remember – Carnival Magic 2011 Mediterranean cruises start from just £799 per person for a 9-night fly cruise – and include all this wonderful food! That's 9-nights for the price of 7 on our current fantastic Carnival Magic deals!
Main Dining Rooms - FREE
All Carnival ships feature two 2-level dining rooms, offering a choice of fixed or “Your Time” open dining.
Menus offer guests a choice of six different appetizers and soups, two salads, and six entrees, and the ever-popular Broiled Lobster Tail served once each voyage, plus a choice of desserts including the legendary Chocolate Melting Cake! Additionally, Carnival Classics – a selection of popular appetizers, entrees and desserts -- is available daily.
Don’t forget to tell your clients about our talented singing and dancing waiters!

Carnival Dream Lanai BBQ: FREE
The new open-air barbecue was recently introduced with much success.

Chef’s Table - $75 FEE (including wine and gratuity)
This unique culinary experience is now available for groups of 12 guests.
