Steakhouse Review: Fahrenheit 555

Any meat-lovers out there?  If so, this post’s for you!

As I mentioned in a prior entry, I cruised on the Carnival Breeze back in April.  And, of course, since I’m a foodie, I decided to try out the steakhouse onboard, Fahrenheit 555.

Pros?  It’s a specialty venue, which means that only a limited number of people can dine there per cruise and it promises food of a supposedly higher caliber than what’s offered in the main dining room.

Cons?  It’s a specialty venue, so the limited seating will most likely mean that if you don’t reserve early, you’ll be stuck with super early/late dining times — or even worse, no dining times.  There’s also an additional fee to dine.  $35 per person, in fact.  Not exactly chump change, but worth it for the experience, I guess.

Sail with Carnival Cruise Lines… and Try the Lobster

This April, I was lucky enough to cruise with Carnival, on the Triumph and Breeze, to the Western and Southern Caribbean, respectively.  While onboard, I sampled lots and lots of food… okay, so I frequented the lunch buffet and ordered multiple appetizers/entrees/desserts at dinner.  Guilty.  Guilty of being a food addict.

One of my favorite meals — if not my FAVORITE meal — was the lobster served in the main dining room.  Here are the lobster entrees I had on the Triumph and the Breeze.  The meat was so juicy, tender, and flavorful that I didn’t even need to reach for the garlic butter sauce sitting ever so intently on the side… no wonder the guy sitting at the next table over ordered six of them!
