Ecstasy and Fantasy Dining Rooms (main dining rooms)
These two identical dining rooms serve four dinner seatings nightly, and they do it in fine fashion. Lobster, prime rib, and fresh seafood highlight the menu, along with more adventurous dishes introduced by Carnival’s new Michelin-starred chef, Georges Blanc. The wait staff is both professional and jovial—dinners are enlivened by their occasional song and dance routines.
Seaview Bar & Grill
The Seaview serves buffet-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, and it has earned its status as a passenger favorite. Four buffet lines offer up soups, salads, and roasted meats, plus a wide variety of desserts. Outdoor dining is available on the neighboring Lido Deck.
This 24-hour pizza kitchen serves hot slices that draw a crowd; it’s located inside the Seaview Bar & Grill.

Coffee drinks (with or without liquor), desserts, ice cream, and milk shakes are the highlights at this walkup bar on Sensation's Boulevard

Carnival offers a wide range of shore excursions, including walking tours, kayak trips, trolley rides, lobster bakes, pub crawls, and wine tasting. Book onboard via cabin TVs or at the shore excursion desk. No last-minute discounts are offered, but late-comers can often join a tour on the dock or swap a pre-booked trip for another one in the same port. A 25 percent fee is levied on any cancellations, and no refunds are offered on tours cancelled within 24 hours of port arrival.
