How is Dinner on a cruise served? Is it Buffet style, or Do you order what you want and the waiters bring it to the table?

Both if you want!! It is buffet on the lido deck. In the main dinning room you will get a menus of the night choices. You choice the items you want and your waiter and his/her team will serve you in style.

If you have went to a beautiful 5 star restaurant with waiters in tucks, table clothes with the best china and glass then you will be sitting at dinner on a cruise ship. They give you a menu with appetizers to begin, then soups/salads, then the main,and then the dessert. You can order what ever you want and if you can't choose between the choices then order both. The meals are so wonderful from Prime Rib, NY steaks, Lobster, Beef Weldon, etc etc etc. They cater to your every desire. MMMMMMM I'm dying here. You most likely will sit at a table with other cruisers that you will get to know cause they will sit with you every night. It is fun to see what they did for the day excursions and you share with them your day.

You can go for buffet in the casual dining room and it stretches out to lido deck for breakfast and lunch for other added grills and stations.

Or as baby doll so well said, go to the main/formal dining room. On a Carnival Cruise it is just not dinner, it is an event not to be missed.

Here is a link to a sample menu.

I just checked the internet for a recipe for the chocolate melting cake and there looks to be some, I think I'll give it a try. Then I'll get a bowl full,close my eyes and think of a carnival cruise ship!

The warm chocolate melting cake reins SUPREME. Served in ramekins, and offered with vanilla ice cream, it's on the dinner menu every night(at least on Pride).

**sunshine, oh my gosh, where do I begin. Breakfast buffet includes bagels w/cream cheese, bacon, ham, sausage, cereal variety, omelet station, fresh smoked salmon, danishes, fruits, etc., There's a 24 hr. pizzeria, serving calzones and caesar salad. Hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries (my girls claim better than McDonalds), chinese food, fried chicken, fresh salads and vegetables, carving stations(including roast beef, turkey and ham with all the fixings), club sandwiches, (even rueben and pastrami) homemade soups. Soft ice cream where you serve yourself (even sprinkles). Cheesecake, layer cakes, assorted jellos, etc. There is a sushi bar, usually 5:00-8:30 p.m. ck. your Carnival Caper for time and location on ship. I only just touched on the foods. The list goes on and on. You'll wonder how the ship holds this much food and beverage. You will never, ever go hungry. Enjoy !
