Cruise Ship Wieners How Do They Measure Up?


On board the Carnival Paradise there are many wonderful dining areas and food options available. The Chef’s Choice located on the Lido Deck carries a variety of dishes from various countries each day. The buffet style selections are inspired by Jamaica, Mexico, France, the Caribbean and United States.

On the day I visited Chef’s Choice they were serving American fare, which of course included hot dogs! Obviously I was very excited to try out my first cruise ship wiener. A variety of toppings were available and I chose to go with chili and grilled onions. Upon my first bite everything tasted wrong. From the chili to the bun to the wiener, it was awful.

I’ve taken many (as in 7) cruises with Carnival and can honestly say I’ve never had a bad meal aboard any of their ships. I wasn’t expecting a 5 star hot dog but at the same time I didn’t expect it to be that gosh darn terrible. Hopefully this was just a fluke. My recommendation skip the cruise ship hot dogs and hold out for some land wiener at one of the port destinations.
