Does anyone know if you can order sandwiches from room service and have them wrapped up to go so you can take them with you when you go into port?

No, you can't. We had a debate awhile back on this. Depending on the port, it is usually against local law to remove food from the ship.

Part of the experience of visiting different ports is trying the local foods. If you don't want to spend the extra money then just go back to the ship for lunch.

What I see a lot of people taking is the small boxes of cereal. As for me I prefer the local food. Hey you are on vacation enjoy, a few extra dollars won't hurt.

Did not see many fish on our inland excursions!

I have never thought about that before. I wonder if it's safe for the fish? I ran out of fish food once for my aquarium, I gave them some cheerios and they survived just fine, of course I am not a marine biologist.

Ok, I just realized I went from Room Service "to go" to feeding fish.

Dog biscuits are good to feed the fish. At Coki beach in St. Thomas, they sold them to feed the fish while snorkeling.

Sonny, you are killing me here!

Getting back to the original question. The room service will not wrap up sandwiches to take off the ship. It is "room" service not "carry-out" service.

I can't find any Carnival policy about taking a sandwich off the ship though. And they certainly don't screen for it while going ashore. I would not recommend it because the food could spoil. Then what? Someone gets sick and blames it on Carnival's food.

Take some plastic zip lock bags, pack your sandwiches and go for it. I've never seen any passengers stopped for taking food off the ship in port.
