Carnivalâ€™s classic American steakhouses offered on several ships continue to be hugely popular with guests. This week, Carnival began a test, offering some of the most popular selections from its steakhouse menus in the main dining rooms on three ships that donâ€™t feature steakhouses. The entrees are being offered on the Carnival Paradise, Carnival Triumph and Carnival Inspiration and carry a fee of $18 each.
The four steakhouse entrees added to main dining room menus include a nine-ounce filet mignon, an 18-ounce grilled prime rib chop, broiled Maine lobster tail, and surf and turf consisting of a half lobster tail and petite filet mignon. The beef is USDA prime, dry aged, the same beef that is served in Carnivalâ€™s steakhouses.
The testing period is expected to run approximately three months during which time the company will evaluate guest demand for these specialty menu items.
The new steakhouse entrees complement the lineâ€™s wide-ranging main dining room menu choices, which include a flat-iron steak offered nightly, along with prime rib and broiled Caribbean lobster tail served every voyage.
Carnival Inspiration currently operates four- and five-day Caribbean cruises from Tampa, Carnival Triumph four- to seven-day Caribbean voyages from New Orleans, and Carnival Paradise three- and four-day Baja departures from Long Beach, Calif.
