Default How good is the 24hour pizzeria?

I leave on the Triumph to Canada in 52 days. Has anyone tried the pizza from the 24 hour pizzeria? I am just curious. Thanks!

Don't know about the Triumph, but on the Holiday, the pizzeria was excellent. By the last day of the cruise, which was a day at sea, I think a lot of people were tired of all of the "fancy" food and, like us, were looking forward to a more simple fare. The lines at the pizzeria were long at times, but the selection was great and the pizza was always fresh and hot. Otherwise, throughout the cruise, there was always a varied selection and the wait for pizza was never more than a couple of minutes.
Enjoy your cruise,
Dixie Lee

I was on the Triumph in April 2003. And it was DELICIOUS!!!! Absolutely fantastic and I was there alot during the middle of the nights! Midnight snacks, and its great to go grab a few slices of pizza and head back to the cabin just before bed! I love it and I think the idea of a 24-hour pizzeria is just the greatest! ( I loooove pizza and I love Carnival's pizza!) mmm. I want some NOW!!

Domino's is better, but try-as-I-might, I just couldn't convince them to deliver....:-)

The pizza on the Glory was very good, I'm sure many of the teens on board lived off the pizza and burgers.

Have fun!

We also loved the Pizza on the Conquest, I believe that you can special order a personal pizza but you have to wait for it, we never did.... Bob

If the pizza is the same as on the Fantasy, it is excellent.

The pizza on the Glory was better than I had expected. Nice chewy crust. Flavorful sauce and cheese. Cooked just right. They use crawler ovens, like Pizza Hut. The dough is obviously well made. Two thumbs up!

On another point, I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the burgers. The fries are another story, though. Cold, stiff shoestrings.

I guess it depends on where your from and your taste in pizza. If you come from an area with a lot of excellent pizza parlors like NW side of Chicago or I imagine areas of New York it is good, if you think Dominos or Pizza Hut is excellent, then you will love it. Cant beat the convenience!

Bruce--you are right about the burger also. My DH is the "burger king". He judges most restaurants by their burgers and he fully enjoyed the ones on our cruise.

I was walking down the inside of the Conquest just past the buffet & came on a small station serving Lamb Roast, I couldn't believe it, Got a plate full & really enjoyed it....

My 13 year old son got on an hourly pizza feeding schedule, no joke. And if you know how hard it is to keep a teenage boy feed you can image how hard it was to break the hourly feeding trend. lol

So, what kind of toppings do they have?

I'm sure there's pepperoni, sausage, veggies, etc. How about Hawaiian? or BBQ-sauce? Just curious. I'm very much looking forward to getting a late night pizza.

Also, how much can you have deliviered to your room?

Thanks

I hate to be the only one to say this, but while the pizza was certainly edible, it wasn't even close to Pizza Hut, Papa John's or Dominos, and you get whatever they have-no special orders. We just had it as a snack, not a meal. Maybe other ships have better pizza, but I wasn't impressed, or maybe if I'd had more to drink...?

I cannot believe people like Dominos Pizza, I would rather eat a .99 cent Totinos frozen pizza, much better. Pizza Hut and P. johns is so so
We did the Triumph 12/04 and the 24 hour pizza was surprisingly good, they even customized it if you were willing to wait 12 minutes.

Maybe because I am from NYC , but I didnt think it was that great. Yes there was a lot of diffrent toppings and offerings but to me , I rather go to the Deli stand -that was way better than the pizza.

Pizza on the Sensation was great, on the Triumph a few months ago it was pretty good, but not as good as the Sensation was for some reason.

Good, but not the best ever and nobody else will deliver to you so........

You COULD order an entire pizza IF there are not 30 people waiting.

Not all pizzas are good to everyone all the time.
Even here in Chicago sometimes they vary.



As for a .99 cent Totinos frozen pizza...........

You get what you pay for!

Try the calzones, they are great. they make them to order, so you have to wait a bit but it's worth it.

Carnival IMHO has THE BEST pizza of all cruiselines. Has anyone met Rajeesh? He worked the pizza station 3 years ago on the Victory. He knew all our names, was GREAT to the kids, and memorized our likes so when he saw us coming he would get our order ready, and this was over spring break time!

Diverbl,
Thanks for the invite! If we're ever in NY we'll take you up on it. Unfortunately, those are our only choices. While I think they are pretty good, my main complaint is that they are FULL of salt! Maybe I should look into a NY pizza franchise!

As someone being from Chicago, I have a VERY picky pizza flavor. I'm sorry but there is no other place than Chicago to eat a pizza.

The pizza on the cruise ship was better than I thought. Nothing fancy or special. Could have more sauce but it was ALWAYS HOT and FRESH! A good snack. I think you'll enjoy it.

My favorite - goat cheese & wild mushroom pizza. Actually, everything I had on the Victory that contained mushrooms was exceptionally good.

We went on the Triumph last year and thought the pizza was EXCELLENT. Much better than most of the pizza you get on land. The crust was amazing. We would sometimes go for a slice as a late night snack after the midnight comedy show and it was always good. You should definitely try it at least once on your cruise.
