Default New Carnival menus?

Hi All:

I know Carnival is updating their menus to include some new Georges Blanc signature dishes. Does anyone know if this has already taken place? If so, has anyone tried any of the new dishes?

Brittany, I asked this question while sailing in Janurary and was told that the new menu should be fleet-wide by summer.

Iwas on the liberty in feb. I really disliked the food and the service.

I was recently onboard the Sensation after the menus were updated. The menus had most of the same items as on previous cruises. However, there was one appetizer, one main dish, and one desert per day that has been added or changed from a previous cruise, and these items were maked with a little Georges Blanc symbol on the menu.

The quality of the food before and after the arrival of the Georges Blanc selections is about the same. Hope this helps!

Default The Carnival Ecstasy.

My husband and I sailed on the Ecstasy last year and I was not impressed with their food at all. I hope the food is better on the Conquest.

Hi Brittany,

Yep. I just sailed on the Carnival Glory and all the menus have been updated to include the Georges Blanc signature dishes. They have a little Georges Blanc monogram beside the name of the dish.

When we went on the Elation in April, they hadn't updated yet. We are planning the Liberty for May 07 so I will get to try the new selections then.

We recently went on the Elation and loved the new menu. I am pretty adventuresome when it comes to food, hubby is NOT. But even he enjoyed it. And our waiter was more than happy to bring multiple entrees so hubby could try new things and order something meat and potatoes style.

I found the new menus posted on the cruise clues website. Go to the menus tab at the top of the screen; the first posting is "carnival menus." It includes the new selections.

We just got off Carnival Glory from a Thanksgiving Cruise and this was the most disappointing food I have had. The food two years ago on Carnival Fantasy was much better. The formal dining room offered 5 entrees each night which were different and they also had 5 entrees which were available each night, I took advantage of that and ended up choosing New York Strip and baked potato several nights after hating the suggested entree. The deserts were the same every night except for pumpkin pie on thanksgiving so we usually ate the Melting Cake which is delicious, but tiring after a week. The salads were about the same each night and the starters weren't too great either.

We had two breakfast in the dining room cooked to order and the waiter seemed confused when I asked for a subsitution from what was on the menu. In the buffett breakfast the food was the same EVERY morning. The only thing that changed was the second and last day they had grits in place of oatmeal. The buffet consisted of the same fruit (apples and oranges...bananas got gone fast), dried up hard pastries (none were ever warm), scrambled eggs, hash brown potatoes, bacon swimming in grease, sausage, (pancakes or french toast), dried toast, dried cereals and an omelet station. I usually just got a cooked to order omelet after the first couple of mornings. In the middle of the room was the milks and yogurts.

Lunch in the restaurant buffet style was awful, nothing seemed to go together and the desserts had no flavor. We ended up opting for the pizza or the burgers from the pool area and having ice cream for dessert. This was our third cruise, second with Carnival and for the 7 day cruise package I wasn't impressed.

We have sailed on two cruises now and loved the food on both.

We learned AFTER cruise #1 that you could ask for seconds on items. Took full advantage of this with the kids. Dd LOVES shrimp so she od on shimp cocktail, salad and baked potato. Our waiter just waited for her to finsh one and brought her another without us having to ask!

Ds loved the fried shrimp (who doesn't!) so one night he asked for seconds. No problem.

No dirty looks
