Besides renowned chefs and expansion of alternative restaurants featuring specialty cuisine, the dining experience onboard cruise ships is once again reaching new levels. Exclusivity is a key focus, with more entertainment features and a new direction when it comes to the ingredients used to prepare those sumptuous dishes.

New Dining Options
The debut of Carnival Cruise Lines’ Carnival Breeze in June includes the line’s first full-service sushi restaurant. “Bonsai Sushi” features sushi, sashimi and roles, with prices ranging from $1 for appetizer-sized portions to $15 for a “sushi ship” for two. Another new restaurant onboard is Fat Jimmy’s C-Side BBQ, a complimentary open-air barbeque venue.
