Dining Room

The Carnival Cruise Empire dining room offers an elegant and relaxing setting in which to enjoy a full three course menu! It’s an experience that’s filling, but never stuffy — you’re just as likely to catch waiters table-dancing as you are to order dessert. Dessert’s included — along with the rest of your meal, by the way — in your fare. But don’t skip straight to dessert, because the main course is the main attraction; drop in daily and enjoy a rotating menu of delectable favourites, including steak, seafood and prime rib.

What do I wear?

When you’re on a Carnival cruise, should you dress up or dress down? The answer is: YES. While you can always wear what you want — most onboard spots are ‘come as you are’ — there will be certain opportunities for dressing up during your cruise. Some dining and nightlife spots always have light dress regulations (“Cruise Casual”), while on certain nights these spots ask that you go all-out (“Cruise Elegant”). So pack a little of everything when you’re getting ready to set sail.

What to wear, and when to wear it? Read on for details.

What’s Cruise Casual?

For the ladies — Casual dresses, casual skirts or pants and blouses, summer dresses, Capri pants, dress shorts, jeans (no cut-offs).

For the gentlemen — Sport slacks, khakis, jeans (no cut-offs), long dress shorts, collared sport shirts.

What’s Cruise Elegant?

For the ladies — Cocktail dresses, pantsuits, elegant skirts and blouses. If you’d like to show off your evening gowns, that’s great too!
