Years ago, when you went on a cruise, you could expect to find the same standard drinks at every venue. A daiquiri, pina colada, maybe a mojito if they were being adventurous with their menus. Today, you’ll find a much more varied offering. Craft beers, premium spirits, carefully crafted cocktails, it’s a whole new game. Carnival Cruise Line, in particular, diversified their drink offering and has a custom drink menu for almost every bar on their ships. That’s pretty impressive, considering that a ship can have 10 – 15 bars.
Carnival rolled out updated menus across their fleets starting in April 2022. Most menu items are still available, but the prices have gone up around 10 – 20% depending on the drink. We’re updating the menus below as we receive them, but you should expect an increase of 10 – 20%. If you have current drink menus, you can email them to us at email@example.com to share with everyone.
Below you’ll find the bar menus we have available so far. Carnival has a pretty robust beverage program and usually has different drinks available at nearly every bar on a ship, so you’ll see a ton of drink options below. For drinks offered at multiple venues, the prices are consistent (i.e., a Coors Light and the Atrium Bar will cost the same as a Coors Light at the Pool Bar).
When looking at the prices, don’t forget to consider gratuities. Carnival automatically adds an 18% gratuity added to all beverage purchases.
If you want to see if the Carnival unlimited drink package (called Cheers) might be good for you. You can also learn more about the Cheers package here.

The steakhouse is a staple on almost every Carnival cruise ship. On the newer ships, it’s called Fahrenheit 555. On older ships, it may have a different name like “David’s Steakhouse,” but the menus are similar. Below you’ll find the updated, April 2022 menus.

The Heroes Tribute Bar and Lounge is a new venue from Carnival that honors the men and women that have served our country. You’ll find this menu on the Carnival Panorama where the Heroes Tribute Bar replaces the SkyBox Sports Bar.
