Tonight I got to experience the premium dining venue aboard Carnival Breeze, a steakhouse called Fahrenheit 555. The fee for this steakhouse was recently raised from $30 to $35, but in my opinion is worth every penny.
Fahrenheit 555 does require a reservation and it usually does book up during the cruise. If you want to have this dining experience during your sailing, book early.
Here’s a glance at the menu (updated in 2016):

If you care for an after dinner drink, try one of these: Dow’s 20-year Tawny, Graham’s six grape, Hennessy, Grand Marnier, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Disaronno Amaretto, Limoncello, Sambuca, or Kahlúa.
Overall the atmosphere wasn’t formal by any means; guys could get away with slacks and tie while women could wear a cocktail dress. I’d consider this more of a dining event than just a meal; expect at least two hours from sit down until you leave. We went in at 8:30 and left at 10:45.
The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was the lobster ravioli. It was mediocre at best; everything else I sampled was great and cooked to perfection. Having the chef come to our table to make sure everything was cooked to order was a nice touch, too.
If you like the big boy steakhouses on land, this one is definitely a bargain for the price.
