Carnival Expands Dining Program

On March 5, the American Table menus will be introduced to Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Miracle, joining 10 ships that’ve previously received them.

Launched in late 2013, both American Table and American Feast have been designed to create a contemporary and memorable dining experience for guests.

Currently On:

  • Carnival Breeze
  • Carnival Conquest
  • Carnival Freedom
  • Carnival Glory
  • Carnival Imagination
  • Carnival Inspiration
  • Carnival Liberty
  • Carnival Magic
  • Carnival Pride
  • Carnival Triumph

American Table is offered on cruise casual nights and designed to evoke a modern restaurant experience with an emphasis on exceptional American cuisine featuring a mix of regional, fresh, and contemporary dishes.  Menus will change each evening and will feature creative appetizers, entrées, and dessert choices. See an example American Table menu here.

American Feast is the elegant night (formal night) experience offered once or twice during the sailing and has menu items like prime rib, lobster (on sailings 6+ days), seared sea bass, alfredo, and smoked duck. See an example American Feast menu here.

  1. Many long time Carnival passengers do not like new menus. The quality has gonecdiwn, less variety. On John Heald FB blog comments describe main entree as follows: ” inedible” awful” ” it sucks” ” Denny’s at sea”. ADD to that American Feast menu has pre-selected side dishes with no substitutes. Food is heavy on sauces. Lobster tail is no longer large and is generally described as “rubbery. Add to that the fine dining ambience of elegant table ware dishes and table cloths are gone. Formal night cloths return but the cloth less tables have another disadvantage in that condensation from iced drinks runs off onto clothing and in ship roll, plates and glasses have slid off tables. Carnival is starting to replace table tops to resolve this. On recent cruises passengers rebelled and fled dining rooms for dinner at Lido Buffet. I know I was on one of those cruises.Friends of mine were on another. First time cruisers seem to like new menus. I guess if they think bacon mac-n cheese is fine dining it’s okay

  2. I was on the Victory right after Thanksgiving. The food was very disappointing. On the Paradise at Christmas the food was descent. On the Legend Dec 2013. The food was very good. Going on the new Vista in May hope the food is good on a new ship. In order to not gain weight I only ate in the dining room. A little from the buffets but just a snack. No weight gain. Hooray

  3. I have been on the imagination inspiration and miracle and the new pizza on the miracle was yuck! The older pizza with the calazones is not the best but at least it tasted good enough to eat. On that miracle cruise whole pizzas where left on tables everywhere…. The new one was soggy and they no longer put sauce just a diced tomatoes it really lacked good flavor. I know that’s more of a real pizza but most people in the USA like sauce pizza including me. I was very disappointed in that because the food in the dining room was blah also. One night they have stuffed manicotti and I was thinking awesome it was to have ricotta cheese and spinach. I am not big on spinach but have have had that before and I could do it because it was mixed with the cheese. However when it came to the table it was all spinach and a few specks of cheese. It was horrible I sent it back and ordered room service due to the buffet being closed and the nasty pizza. I wish carnival would stop cutting corners and just charge a bit more for better food. I was booked on Vista in January but sadly do to rent going so high this year in CA I had to cancel. I was really looking forward to guys burgers…. 🙁
