Default breakfast menu for kids

Does Carnival have a breakfast menu for kids in the dining room? I know they have a kids dinner menu. Hopefully I won't have to have the breakfast buffet every day.

They are very accommodating in the dining room for breakfast. You can order items that are not on the menu and they will do it if they can.

There is really not much difference between the breakfast menu in the formal dining room and the breakfast menu in the buffet. The only differences I have noticed are the addition of eggs benedict, salmon, and corned beef hash in the formal dining room. The main difference between both venues is that in the formal dining room, you are waited on and everything arrives at the same time...you don't have to walk around the buffet gathering items along the way. By the time you sit down to eat, the first hot item you put on your plate is now cold. I prefer the convenience of the buffet but a lot of people love sitting down to a quiet, leisurely breakfast. I'm sure they must have a children's menu, other readers will probably answer this question for you. Even if you had to order from the adult menu, the portions are very small and I can't think of what breakfast items a child would want that are not on the adult menu. They offer dry cereal, hot cereal, juice, fruit, eggs, pancakes, toast, bagels, etc.

I prefer the dining room breakfast by far; however, the best single item you can get IMHO is a fresh, hot, made-to-order omelet from the omelet station.

They have a lot more stuff in the dining room. Also the dining room is usually not as busy as the buffet.

There is no children's menu for breakfast, but what would be different for a child?

I mean they have everything a child eats on their regular breakfast menu.

They have:

Choice of cereals
Pancakes
French Toast
eggs - cooked any way you like it
Bacon / ham / sausage and any other meats
Toast - all different breads
hash browns
Pasteries
Milk and juices

What else do kids eat for breakfast????

It's all there except crayons and a coloring book!

I just wanted to be sure that it wasn't a gourmet type only meal. Eggs benedict doesn't fly with the kids.

They will cook the eggs anyway you want, it's no different than if you went to IHOP or Denny's!

Also, there is no dress code for breakfast or Lunch, except they don't want you going in the dining room with swim shorts, otherwise, shorts or jeans are fine!
