Carnival calls time on free room service

Carnival Cruise Line is calling last orders on free room service.

From mid-January, all in-cabin orders will become a la carte except for continental breakfast which remains free.

The new room service menu of lunch, dinner, and late-night meals will cost between $2 and $5 per item.

It will provide 'a greater variety of culinary choices for in-room delivery' the line says.

The line still offers 'the best value in travel', according to brand ambassador Jon Heald, who said the onboard deli will now stay open until 11 pm on all ships across the fleet and will remain complimentary.

"Sometimes we need to make a tough decision that may be unpopular but make sense in the long run," Heald said.

Nearly a year ago Carnival announced an end to 24/7 free room service with a surcharge for items ordered overnight between 10pm-6am.

    Just watch, all the cruise lines will probably now follow suit. Another way of making you pay more and more. The claim the deli remains complimentary is hardly true, nothing is ever really complimentary, you've paid for everything, it's built in to the price just like the All Inclusive, (often the most expensive way to buy your 'free' drinks/snacks).
