Carnival Vista: What’s for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner?

QUESTION: Do you prefer the cruise ship buffets or sit down dining?

What kind of dining options are on a cruise ship?


We only participated in Dining Room Breakfast 2x because we didn't like the wait. Breakfast is so convenient up at the Lido Marketplace... especially enjoyed the Omelette Station, morning croissants and oatmeal. But, here is a glimpse of one morning's Steak and Eggs at the dining room.


Included: Guy's Burger Joint • Pizzeria Del Capitano • Guy's Pig & anchor Smokehouse (only open on Sea Days) • BlueIguana Cantina • Cucina del Capitano ($) / The Captain's Pasta Bar (lunch only) • Serenity Deck's Fresh Creations

On Embarkation Day we tasted Guy's Pig and Anchor Smokehouse.

On several occassions, we went to the Serenity Deck for Salads "Your Way"

Cucina del Capitano offers complimentary The Captain's Pasta Bar for lunch only. Dinner-time, it converts to Specialty Dining ($).


Specialty Dining costs extra: Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse ($) • Bonsai Sushi ($) • JiJi Asian Kitchen ($)

We didn't partake in specialty dining options on our Carnival Vista Galveston cruise, but we sure enjoyed sit down dining every evening.
