Carnival has now expanded its room service offering to include some extra charge items on certain ships in its fleet. If you want to enjoy Wings, Shrimp, Cobb Salad or Quesadilla in your cabin you will be charged between $4-$6. I guess that Carnival is trying it out on a few ships to see how it flies. Would you be will to pay $6 for an order of Shrimp, $4 for a Cobb Salad, $5 for Wings or Quesadilla in your room?
Carnival Expands Room Service Options with Extra Charge Choices
I don't think that I would order any of these extra charge items from Room Service as I have never used Room Service on Carnival. I guess if passengers are willing to pay for the expanded menu it is OK with me. I am too full eating three meals a day that I am never hungry for extra food.
Not surprising. This is the direction of cruising. Keep the baseline cost low and charge for every extra imaginable. Note: "extras" which used to be considered part of the baseline are no more.
I have used room service. Nothing better on a sea day to sleep in, wake up to Breakfast being delivered to your cabin to sit on the balcony in your robe and messy hair to coffee, fruit juice and breakfast. I have also had dinner delivered to the cabin when not feeling like going to the MDR.
Paying extra for basics of room service that used to be included does not sit well with me. Carnival only has sandwiches on the room service menu for free.
I doubt I'd pay the extra for the items listed. Now if they would deliver the Steak House menu I'd pay to have that on my balcony one night.
The only time that I might be tempted to order these items is if I were inviting another couple to my stateroom for cocktails. I do like the fact that more items are available for Room Service even if extra cost.
Steak on your stateroom balcony sounds wonderful. I like mine rare and wonder if by the time it got to my stateroom if it would still be hot and rare. I like your idea though.
