A new open-air barbeque on The Lanai aboard the Carnival Dream has proven to be a huge hit, attracting upwards of 700 hungry passengers each day. Located along the ship’s expansive outdoor promenade, the new barbecue option was introduced a few weeks ago and features a variety of popular grilled items, from sliders and chicken to quesadillas and hot dogs, along with salads, homemade chips and salsa, and traditional barbecue accompaniments.
The new al fresco venue is just one of several casual dining choices on board Carnival Cruise Lines' newest and largest ship. The huge 3,646-passenger Carnival Dream also has a 1,700-seat poolside eatery called The Gathering that features an Indian tandoori, burrito bar, Mongolian wok station, a custom-made pasta venue, a New York-style deli, extensive salad and dessert bars, and Carnival’s ever-popular 24-hour pizzeria. These casual alternatives complement multi-course full service meals available in the Scarlet and Crimson main dining rooms and The Chef’s Art Steakhouse serving prime steaks and other fine cuisine.
Carnival Dream operates year-round 7-day Caribbean service from Port Canaveral, Florida, carrying an estimated 200,000 guests annually from that port.
