Carnival Cruise Line has raised the price for its Steakhouse Specialty Dining Menu by $3, a spokesperson for the cruise line tells Travel Agent. A full dinner, which includes appetizer, salad, entrée, side dishes, dessert and coffee or tea will new be $38. Children 11 and under will be able to order off the children’s menu at $12, and children who are guests in Family Harbor will be able to eat free.
“This is the first price increase in more than five years, and reflects higher food costs, most especially higher prime beef prices,” the spokesperson said.
The new price went into effect around September 20, and all bookings made before then were honored at the booked price.
Carnival’s Steakhouse is one of the cruise line’s optional dining choices, offering cuts of beef cooked to guest specifications, as well as a selection of seafood, entrées, appetizers and a wine list. Reservations are recommended, according to the cruise line.
Other optional dining choices, depending on the ship, include the recently launched Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse | Brewhouse, Bonsai Teppanyaki, Cucina del Capitano, Bonsai Sushi, the Chef’s Table and more.
