Im cruising out of New Orleans on Carnival Triumph and I have heard rumors that you can pay an extra $25/head for food if you want something special? Whats the details on this??

Thanks

They are doing a test on some of the ships that don't have a Steakhouse. The Paradise, Triumph, and Inspiration. This is to offer some of the Steakhouse menu items in the Main Dining Room for the ships that don't have a Steakhouse. I thought the charge was $18.

Carnival is NOT charging anything extra for the regular Main Dining Room selections.

If you are a steak lover I suggest trying the Porterhouse at least one night. Its incredible. We try to eat at the Steakhouse at least once during a cruise. I think allowing you to get the food served there on ships that don't have one is a fantastic idea. Not that the main dinning room food is not excellent, but the steakhouse steaks are another notch above it.

I agree about the Porterhouse steak! It was awesome on the Legend! I actually joked with the waiter in the MDR the next night when I placed my order that I'd have one of those. Of course he said they don't have them. Now maybe they will if the market test is successful.

I agree, you should try it. The steaks/seafood are out of this world. The price is incredibly cheap in comparison to places we have eaten that specialized in these specialty cuts. Makes my mouth water just thinking about them.
We leave in 2 weeks to San Juan to jump back on and be warm one more time this year
