The Carnival Breeze offers numerous dining options onboard. We're going to focus on lunch and dinner because we find breakfast to be boring no matter what cruise ship you're on. We tried almost all of the dining venues, so here's the run down what what they serve, and what we thought!

The Carnival buffet varies greatly between lunch and dinner. During lunch time they offer many different options:
- Tandoor- Indian cuisine. Located on the starboard (right) side of the ship just outside the back door to the buffet.
- Pizza Pirate- Hand made pizza by-order. Located port side (left), just outside the back door to the buffet.
- Deli- Typical deli style food from sandwiches, salads, to soups. Located central-back in the buffet.
- Homestyle- Daily selections from chicken fingers, salads, fish, burgers, hot dogs, etc. Located central-front section of the buffet, close to the beach pool and elevators.
- Mongolian Wok- Stir fry. You choose the ingredients, they fry it up!
Dinner hour was different, the front section of the buffet did not serve food, but was open for seating. If you intend to eat at the buffet for dinner you'll need to travel to the back section where they will have 3-4 options that might include a couple of items from the Main Dining Room.
Found pool side and open daily until 6pm. Serving up some of the tastiest burgers I've ever had! You grab your burger at the counter, then head over the the topping bar to decorate it how you want! The fries are pretty darn good too. The napkins look like rags from a car garage.
Found pool side and open daily for breakfast and lunch. In the morning they make made-to-order breakfast burritos with all types of fillings. We enjoyed this breakfast because it changed it up a bit from the same old stuff. They also served arepas! For lunch they have burritos and tacos, also made-to-order.
Located on Deck 5-Promenade. This venue is only open during sea days. They had pork, chicken, and sausage along with beans, potato salad, corn bread, grilled vegetables, and more. I was warned that there would be a long wait, but it wasn't terrible. Ten minutes at the most! Click HERE to view the menu.
The main dining rooms are both open for dinner each night. We were assigned the Blush, the first photo below, second level. All of the food was very good. They are still using what many refer to as the "old menus" which I like. We tried the "new menus" back in December and were less than impressed. Blush is located at the aft (back) of the ship, whereas Sapphire is located mid-ship right off the atrium. Both are on decks 3 & 4. Guests are assigned to a specific dining room for dinner.

Located on deck 5 in Ocean Plaza (mid-ship). For lunch they offer salads and soups. At dinner time they have samples from the specialty restaurants. A nice way to sample some yummy food before making a reservation for the extra cost restaurants.
The hot dog stand is located on the Sports Deck (12), under the Sky Course. It is open during lunch hours daily 11am-4pm.
Located on deck 5 on the Promenade, this a la carte ($$) location serves up sushi. Every time we walked past it they were filled to the max! I don't east sushi so I can't comment on the quality. By the looks of how busy it was, I'd say it must have been yummy! Click HERE to view the menu.
Located on deck, just above the Lido Buffet. They offer a complimentary pasta bar at lunch. At lunch they also offer lasagna and salads as well. All pasta dishes are made to order. Dinner is $15 per person and includes a more extensive menu. We enjoyed a delicious lunch there one day. The pasta and sauces were fabulous! I'm Italian and I approve ;) Click HERE to view the menu.
Located on deck 5, Promenade. This venue offers pub/ bar food for a small cost ($) and has an extensive bar offering of beers and mixed drinks. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Games do not have a cost. We saw many people playing with the corn hole game after dinner each night. On a few nights there was live music inside. Click HERE to view the menu.
Located on deck 5, aft. This steak house has a $35 per person fee. It serves up a variety of steak seafood, and other gourmet entrees. It always receives wonderful reviews. We didn't personally eat here on this trip, but we would consider it in the future. Click HERE to view the menu.
