Carnival’s Thanksgiving Day Menu

Cruising and food go together like peanut butter and jelly, and it’s always exciting when we get new menus. Whether it’s a regular menu getting a facelift or a specialty restaurant updating its offerings, we love nothing more than perusing them to see what we will order… or would if we were on board! Today, we’re looking at Carnival’s Thanksgiving menu. Whether you’ll be enjoying the festivities aboard one of their ships or simply looking for ideas to incorporate into the dishes you’ll serve at home, here’s what’s on the menu!
