Carnival’s Chief Culinary Officer Emeril Lagasse has collaborated with the cruise line to create nearly 60 new entrée presentations for the main dining room that will rotate across ships. The enhanced menus offer increased variety, an entree salad option, and New Orleans-style dishes.

The main dining room menus will also feature offerings from popular specialty dining restaurants.

Last November, Carnival made several food-related changes, including charging for a third entree in the main dining room, removing 24-hour ice cream, and modifying the hours of the round-the-clock pizza.
