Food options

I am looking to take my first cruise during the Christmas week but was curious how the food is on carnival ships. I will be on the sunshine so I can not find out a lot about it since it has not sailed in America yet. So in general what should I expect? Also how many nights are formal and how many are casual? Do they still do the surf and turf or do you have to pay for that? Also if you pay is it for just the one meal or is it as much as you can eat? Thanks!

The Surf and Turf is in The Prime Steakhouse and the cost is for the single meal. Follow the link for the steakhouse menu:

We don't do this every time we sail but we enjoy it when we do. My nephew really did enjoy this steak and I'm sorry there no after picture. Who wants to see a picture of a almost clean white plate. Big Smile

On a 7 night cruise there will be 2 elegant evenings and the rest are "cruise casual". On the first elegant night is when lobster is served, it is served with shrimp not steak in the MDR (main dining room) and it does not cost extra. You only pay for lobster if you dine in the Steakhouse onboard which has a surcharge of $35 per person. I have found the food on Carnival to be good if not great on occasions. Enjoy the Sunshine, she is beautiful!
