The Carnival Freedom has 24-hour room service, but the menu is mostly cold food.
Room service takes between 30 and 45 minutes to be delivered to your room. The menu is brief, featuring a short list of cold sandwiches (tuna, ham and cheese, BLT, shrimp salad, roasted NY strip loin and cheddar) and a few hot items as well (grilled cheese, hot Ruben, chicken fajita, hot pastrami). Supplementing the sandwiches, there are two salads and a crudité plate of veggie sticks and blue cheese for dipping. For your sweeter side, there is a dessert menu with two cakes and fruit.
Breakfast items on the room service menu are limited to cereals, yogurt, breads, pastries, and hot and cold beverages. Do not get your hopes up for more robust options such as eggs, meats and cheeses, or you will be disappointed. You can get breakfast until 11 am, and order it in advance by 5 am or by phone the same day.
Of the sandwiches, the BLT is one of the better choices we found though it does not have that much B compared to L and T. The chicken fajita was the most satisfying with lots of chicken and guacamole in a tasty jalapeño and tomato wrap. The salads — a Caesar and a mixed greens — were underwhelming.
Dessert is a standard list of cheesecake, chocolate cake, cookies, fruit, and one odd outlier: strawberry yogurt.
You can order juices, coffee, tea and milk for free any time you like. At regular bar prices, the staff will deliver soda and beer as well.
