Most cruise ships have premium restaurants where passengers can have special food different from what is served in the dining room or buffet if they are willing to pay the fee. These fees can range from next to nothing to quite a lot depending on the ship and the restaurant. Carnival Breeze has 4. At the Red Frog Pub the Pub Grub is cooked fresh right there and costs just $3.33 per food item or $2.22 for their very delicious icky sticky coconut cake. Their food includes things like grouper (fish) fingers, pulled pork or beef sliders, and coconut shrimp among other things. The Breeze also has Cucina del Capitano, an Italian restaurant with a free pasta bar at lunch and fancier Italian food for $15 per person at dinner and a sushi place where sushi can be purchased in varying quantities. The premium upscale restaurant on the Breeze is their steakhouse, Fahrenheit 555.
Passengers can choose one of the steakhouse meats on the dinner menu in the dining room for $20, or they can book a table at Fahrenheit 555 and have the whole steakhouse experience for $35.
The waiter comes by with a display of the meats offered for dinner and talks a bit about how each is cooked. The meal includes 4 courses, an appetizer, salad, main, and dessert. Before the appetizer you order comes they bring an extra unexpected little morsel out for people to try. They gave John tomato soup and me some sort of raw lobster and caviar thing so we traded because I don’t eat anything raw that didn’t come from a plant. The soup tasted quite good and he liked the seafood thing.
For appetizers I had lobster bisque and he had French onion soup. The lobster bisque was the sort where the bowl starts out with bits of things and no liquid and the waiter pours the soup around it. The onion soup came in a fancy bowl on a stand and was different from what the main dining room serves. For salad we both had the baby spinach, which has mushrooms hidden in the center of the spinach pile and a bit of bacon on top.
We chose lobster tails for our main course. They come halved and stacked on top of their garlic mashed potatoes. Menu options include a selection of lots of side dishes people can add to their meal. We ordered some not realizing the lobster came with potatoes and ended up with way too much food.
For dessert he got the chocolate sampler, 4 little pots of different fancy little chocolate desserts. I had the cheesecake, which was delicious, but far too big to eat the whole thing even though the waiter called my gigantic slice a small piece.
The food at the steakhouse tasted quite good and they also provide an enjoyable dining experience.
