Carnival Cruise Line Eliminating Free Room Service

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Travelers who love hitting the high seas with Carnival Cruise Line will be paying more for their vacation in 2019 after the company announced room service would no longer be complimentary on every ship in its fleet.

According to the official website of the cruise line, Carnival will be switching to an a la carte stateroom service menu starting in mid-January 2019. Prices for a wide variety of menu items will range from $2 to $5 per item.

While passengers will be charged for lunch, dinner and late-night menu items, Carnival officials said continental breakfast would continue to be offered free of charge. The cruise line said the changes would provide guests with a “greater variety of culinary choices for in-room delivery.”

Carnival also announced it would be increasing the price of the Bottomless Bubbles package to $5.95 per person, per day for kids and $8.50 per day for adults, plus gratuity. For passengers who already purchased the package, the previous price will be honored.

Last year on January 1, Carnival officials announced the cruise line’s CHEERS! package increased by $2 per person, per day.

Despite all of the changes, Carnival brand ambassador John Heald also pleaded with passengers to continue tipping servers despite the price increases.

Remember the days when you could order an entire breakfast from the room service menu for free? I'm not sure if this is another way to nickel and dime the guest, or to discourage the guest from ordering hot breakfast because the ships are getting so big that it's too difficult to get the food to arrive hot. I stopped ordering anything beyond coffee, fruit and pastry in the morning both because I can't eat that much in the morning and the food was cold by the time it got to me.

Cruising sucks nowadays. It was soooo much better twenty years ago. Now it's run like a fast-food joint

I don’t think cruising sucks, but I do agree it has changed a lot in 20 years. The ships are getting bigger and swankier, and today’s cruising multi-generational families love the idea of a floating resort at sea.
