Carnival is on a roll (pun intended) with new menus lately. Yesterday John Heald announced new menus for the steakhouse and Cucina Del Capitano trattoria. Today he featured the new menu for Carnival’s very popular deli sandwich venue on his Facebook page.
I love the deli on Carnival ships. It’s often my lunch choice on embarkation day because new cruisers don’t know about it and they just see the main buffet and queue up there. It’s also very good. The new menu doesn’t have one of my favorites on it – pastrami – but corned beef remains with the Reuben, and they will still make you a regular corned beef on rye. Even if it’s not on the menu the deli staff has always made what you wanted as long as they have the ingredients in front of them. I’ve often wondered why they didn’t have sandwich classics such as the BLT or a meatball sub. I’m happy to report that both are now on the menu.
The new menu also adds potato salad and french fries. One thing missing for years was a side item for the sandwiches so I’m glad to see these additions.
The new menu is currently on Carnival Vista, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Conquest and Carnival Glory with more ships coming soon.
