Steakhouse on carnival cruise

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me where to find a menu for the steakhouse in carnival sunshine. Also, do you feel the steakhouse is worth it. We have been on a few cruises but never tried one.

The consensus is the Steakhouse is the best at sea.....as far as "specialty" restaurants go! If you want something " a step above", give it a try.

A silly question? No. Lots of thoughts and discussion about tipping in the specialty restaurants on all ships on Cruise Critic.

 

The majority seem to believe/know that the charge one pays include the gratuity. Some believe that an additional gratuity is warranted if the experience and service meets/exceeds your expectations.

 

Personally, sometimes I do; sometimes I don't. I would prefer to offer some small gratuity. But, if the experience and service does not meet my expectations, then I don't.

Yes, the steakhouse is worth it, I have been there 2 years ago on the Sunshine and I am going again in Sept 2018. You can fine the menu online line under the specialties steakhouse.

I just made a reservation request for the steakhouse on the Pride and it listed the waitstaff gratuity as part of what was included in the $35 cost. It also said that you are welcome to extend an additional gratuity for exceptional service.

 

So you probably wouldn't tip like you would on land, but are welcome to give some extra. I'm assuming there will be a line to add gratuity on your receipt from the sail & sign card, but would probably bring some cash just in case. We did a specialty dinner on Regal Princess last year and were never brought anything to sign.

Only $34 for steak including the gratuity. A very good price. We have had NY strip and other steaks. All excellent. Better be starved. The portions are very big.

Is it like the dining room where you can order multiple items, or 1 of each?

This is an older thread, so some of the information is outdated here.  The cost of Carnival Steakhouse is now $38 per person (possibly a lower price option for a child's menu).  Gratuity might not be included anymore, you would need to check when ordering and review your receipt (it may be added automatically like drink purchases).

 

The Steakhouse (and other specialty restaurants) are different than the main dining room.  Some specialty restaurants (Seafood Shack, Bonzai Sushi) are a la carte pricing and you pay for each item ordered.  The Steakhouse is a fixed price meal (currently $38 per adult) and includes: an amuse bouche (small bite); breads; choice of appetizer and soup or salad (some will allow 2 soups/salads or 2 appetizers), one entree with choice of sides (you can likely have multiple sides), one dessert.  If you choose Art of the Table everyone in your party shares that dessert, otherwise each person can order their own separate dessert.

 

When we went last year the portions were generous and higher quality than MDR so you probably wouldn't need multiple items.  If we were curious about multiple items I would get one and my husband would get the other and we would share.

Thanks for the info. I think we might give it a try!

Bring your camera - it is certainly worth some food photos!  

(My desert was a shame to eat - it was a marvel to behold!)

The steakhouse is one of the things I'm looking forward to most on my upcoming cruise! I tried it once before when we sailed on Carnival Magic and I had the best steak I ever had there...sadly, it was my boyfriend's steak, the spice-rubbed ribeye, and I only got to have one bite. Mine was delicious too, but that ribeye was something else. I've been fantasizing about ordering it for myself this time around, but the new addition of the wagyu is *very* tempting. We might just have to go twice this year.
