Whether you’re looking to enjoy breakfast on the balcony or a late-night snack, you can get Carnival room service delivered to your cabin 24/7.
On October 1, 2022, Carnival Cruise Line debuted a new room service menu. The simplified menu still includes a complimentary continental breakfast, but daytime room service is now priced à la carte.

Carnival Room Service Menu and Prices
Carnival’s room service menu consists of a Continental Breakfast Menu from 6:00 am to 10:00 am and the Rest of Day/Evening Menu (Leisure Dining Menu) from 10:00 am to 6:00 am.
The new room service menu eliminates the late-night menu, which was a favorite for many cruisers. The new daytime menu is also priced à la carte, without complimentary items.
According to Carnival Cruise Line’s Chief Operations Officer Neil Palomba, “we are updating our room service menu to add more options on an à la carte basis, while maintaining a complimentary breakfast offering each morning. These changes are consistent with trends across the industry, and also provide us opportunities to continue to work towards various sustainability goals, including food, water and energy reduction, while still giving our guests the option of 24/7 room service if they so choose.”
The new menus are very similar to the old room service menu guests are accustomed to seeing. Perhaps the biggest change is that all daytime room service menus are now priced à la carte menus.
Additionally, there’s no more late-night menu. Instead, the daytime room service menu runs from 10:00 am to 6:00 am. But if you’re looking for a late-night snack, the sweet treats from the daytime menu are a great choice.
If you order à la carte menus, the cruise line automatically adds an 18% service charge.
Guests can order beverages from the bar at standard rates. However, you can’t use your Carnival cruise drink package for beverages ordered through room service.
Continental Breakfast Menu and Prices
The continental breakfast is complimentary for all guests, along with à la carte selections at an additional price. Breakfast room service is delivered between 6:00 am to 10:00 am.
The menu is available every morning of the cruise except for the last morning of the cruise. On the last morning, guests can enjoy breakfast at the Lido restaurant or main dining room.
You can order the complimentary continental breakfast by filling out the breakfast menu and hanging it outside your cabin door before 3 am.
Your cabin will have a stack of breakfast menus. But if you run out, you can always ask your room steward to provide more.
The new breakfast menu is nearly identical to the old continental room service menu. Some breakfast items are substituted, and the prices for the à la carte items are an additional $1 to $2.
