Thumbs down restaurant increase
I've heard that prices in 2 of the speciality restaurants are going up
Ji Ji Asian Kitchen is to go up to $15
Cucina del Capitano is to go up to $15
now I agree a $3 rise might not seem that big a deal to many who like eating in a speciality restaurant but that works out to be an extra $6 per couple. How do Carnival justify this price rise and why are they raising the price.
Bet they are hoping that nobody really notices.

We have never eaten in a speciality restaurants and never will. The main dinning room is all we need. We have been cruising for 10 years.

Carnival says it is because their costs have risen. I can tell you that food prices in the U.S. have risen sharply in the past year for many items, and also that Carnival sources much of their food from U.S. suppliers. Example story about higher prices

Compared to the prices that excursions have risen to or 10 minutes in the casino - it's still a deal. The best thing about it is it's totally your choice as to going or not. Like the other guy said - there's plenty of free food available and it's usually pretty good.

You are totally correct Dave. We drive across to the US a lot during the years and have found prices in the US are the same or more than in Canada. We use to buy lots of stuff as they use to be cheaper, but not anymore. We use to buy lots of Pop in the states as it use to be 2 to 3 dollars cheaper, but now we are finding that Pop cost more than in Canada. The cost of everything is going up and up in both the US and Canada.
