Update: Carnival Cruise Line has paused their plan to start charging for room service on cruises.
The new room service menu will feature items that will come with à la carte pricing and will be available on every cruise ship in Carnival’s fleet. The items will range from $2-$5 each and feature everything from sandwiches to pizza to desserts. The new menu can be seen below.
The new charges will apply to lunch, dinner, and late night menu items. Currently, Carnival offers a selection of complimentary and à la carte items. Continental breakfast will continue to be complimentary when this new menu is introduced on cruise ships.
Why is Carnival Cruise Line making this change? Cruise line Brand Ambassador John Heald posted the following about the reason for this change:
“Over the last several years, we have heavily invested in bringing more variety to our complimentary food choices across our fleet, while at the same time trying to find effective means to continue to reduce food waste. This new pricing structure positions Carnival on par with similar charges by other cruise operators in the contemporary market.”

This is the first change Carnival Cruise Line has made to their room service menu since January 2018 when they started to charge for late night room service (10 pm – 6 am).
Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean both charge a $7.95 fee for room service orders.
