Default Carnival Cruise Breakfast Roomservice

Hello, I am a first time cruiser and was wondering what the room service breakfast menu was like, I found a great menu on line yesterday but it said, "Concierge Menu." Which I later thougth might be for some special class I don't know about...then I saw a different menu that was more like a continental breakfast menu. (I'll be sailing on the Carnival Pride in July).
Just wondering if I can look forward to pancakes on the balcony, or an english muffin

Thank you for any input!

It is more like a continental breakfast. I don't believe there is pancakes. I wish!!! Danishs, muffins, cereal and so forth. Most important: Coffee!!! Have an awesome time. The pride is a great ship. Are you doing the Mexican Riviera?

We usually don't use the regular room service menu for breakfast, but almost every night we use the little doorknob hanger to pre-order a continental style breakfast. We love this as an extra wake up call and to have our coffee in the cabin while we are getting dressed. You can order croissants, rolls, danish, cereal, fruit, coffee, tea, juices, etc.

I also love to get up really early and go up to the lido deck and get a cup of coffee and find a quite place on an open deck to watch the sun come up and maybe read for a little while.

If you really want to have pancakes (or anything else) on your balcony, just throw on a robe and go up to the Lido deck and fix a tray to carry back to your cabin.

Have fun!

Yep, me and about half the passengers on the ship. I see people day and night around the ship in their robes going to the spa, pool, etc. I have even taken my ship robe to the theatre to wrap up in during the shows because it is so cold in there.

I'll be on the pride end of august... mexican riviera, can't wait.

okay, so when we were on the paradise last yr for a 4 day cruise, the breakfast menu really only had continental breakfast items.... are there other breakfast menus for longer cruises or different ships...

Also there lunch menu was pretty scarce as well, just sandwiches/chips stuff like that.

We have been on the Holiday several times, two or three Fantasy Class ships and two Conquest Class ships, and all of the room service menus are about the same. Sometimes, mostly when the grandkids are with us, we like to order cookies/brownies and milk at bedtime or a plate of fruit or raw veggies. You can always take a tray from the lido deck up to your private balcony though. Just set the tray in the hallway when you are finished and the steward will take care of it.

We have also taken a couple of room service sandwiches (in our always packed ziploc bags) into port for lunch, if we feel that the port is not somewhere we really want to eat.

Yup, the room service menu is fleet wide. Same on a 4 day as on a 14 day.

On Sensation I had lox, bagel and cream cheese for breakfast every day, via room service, plus fruit and delicious coffee..... that was a great way to start every day, even debarkation day! My son had cereal and milk as well as a bagel with cream cheese.

I do like the idea of ordering room service before getting off at port. Thanks for the idea.

If you are traveling with children, the room service in the morning and at bedtime is great. You can let the children have a bowl of cereal or fruit, etc and juice/milk while you are getting dressed. Our grandchildren love the bedtime cookies & milk.

Default THank for all your input

Thanks you guys! You all really made some great suggestions and have wonderful ideas. Now that I have all the logistics behind me (paying, plane tickets, the un-fun stuff) I am really starting to get excited.

(I'll be traveling in July with my mom to Cobo/pv/Mazatlan)

A first cruise for both of us. I did go ahead and have a bottle of champagne sent to our room as a surprise when we get there.

Thanks for all your input! You are helping to get me "in the cruise mood"

I prefer the buffet breakfast but have done the room service before.

You are correct, the breakfast menu I posted is the dining room menu. If you google "carnival room service breakfast menu" you will find photos of the menu.

Dang...here I was getting my hopes up!
Oh well, I actually like the buffet breakfast. One of my favorite things to do is watch the water go by while getting caffeinated!

Glad you posted this. I thought I had seen eggs on the menu and pancakes. And, It is my experience that if it is not on the menu and you ask for it.... most of the time you can get it if it is available... they are pretty accomodating.
