Carnival testing new breakfast menu

From :

Ask a cruiser what comes to mind when they think about their upcoming trip, and odds are good that “food” will rank pretty high. So whenever cruise lines roll out a new menu, it causes a stir as we all peruse it, prejudge it and — if you’re anything like me — imagine what we’d order from it. This week, Carnival Cruise Line’s senior cruise director and brand ambassador, shared that the line is testing a new menu that will be offered in the main dining room on port days.

What Carnival Cruise Line’s New Menu Offers

Carnival Cruise Line

Heald made sure to say that this new menu would not be replacing the sea day brunch that many Carnival cruisers have come to love. Rather, the menu — which is currently being tested on the Carnival Victory offers a variety of foods which could help fuel your engine for a day of exploring the port! More important, the menu is being touted as an “express” meal, promising to be “done fast, done right, in and out in 25 minutes.” And this, of course, would be a major selling point for anyone with a booked shore excursion who is on a tight schedule!

The menu offers a nice variety of choices, divided up into sections like “Morning Pastries & Griddle”, “Eggs” and “Lighter Fare.” Among the items that immediately caught our attention? The Breakfast Board (featuring a soft-boiled egg, house-made yogurt, butter, seasonal jam, baby lettuce salad, pastrami and grilled sour dough); the Broken Egg Sandwich (described as “rustic panini, two fried eggs, bacon, cheddar, greens and potato chips) and, in the Lighter Fare section, the Breakfast Bowl (kale, spinach, farro, wheat berries, sesame seeds, feta cheese, raspberries and a sunny-side up egg).

The menu also features the stuff you’d expect to find, including pancakes, vanilla french toast, a variety of cereals and omelets.

Carnival changes menus the way the San Diego Padres change uniforms.

But hey, if it works, all the better.

I don't like change

Well... It looks good to me. Certainly there are enough choices to appeal to all. I would not mind indulging in an order of the Eggs Benedict .

Since I've know Cromp's style of posting for a few years, the first thing I need to ask is this a Cromp leg pulling or is it real?

It is legit. We usually don't go the the MDR for breakfast, because it has been slow, not the choices we wanted and/or we slept-in. We might try this menu however. The DH and I have been talking about it for a few days. with our cruise so close and all. (please note the sarcasm on how close the cruise is).

Noted! Wink

Oh come on ! Really ? I'd have to make up that menu and everything. Besides, you got the email too.

On the other hand, mine would be more inventive. Like, if I said they were doing away with their whale tail stacks in favour of Mouse Ears due to their merger with Disney Cruises.

You are and can be very inventive. I do recall a posting of 3 women getting in a fight on a Carnival ship on the Lido deck.

Pink set me straight on it.

As much as I'm thinking about jumping ship after this next cruise, Mouse Ears will not be a choice.

I think Cruise Radio dropped me.

3 women in a fight ?

yelp. Took place on the Lido and they were removed from ship. Well made up and written.
