An appealing aspect of going on a cruise, for those who like to travel that way, is how everything you could want is located on the ship. A French restaurant? A nail salon? Exercise equipment? Ice cream? It’s all just an elevator ride or a couple of staircases away.
Guests on the Carnival Cruise Line won’t even have to do that, thanks to a new service on their app that allows them to order beer, soda, water, or pizza for delivery. Whether travelers are reading a book by the pool or trying their luck at the casino, they can nosh on a piping hot pizza (almost) anywhere on the cruise ship.
The pizza delivery service via Carnival’s HUB smartphone app has been available for hungry but lazy cruise-goers since 2015. The drinks service, however, became available this year. The services are currently available on the ships Carnival Victory, Carnival Elation, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Glory, Carnival Liberty, and Carnival Conquest, according to the cruise line.
Hungry passengers can order cooked-to-order pizzas from shipboard restaurant Pizzeria del Capitano, including quattro formaggi (four cheese), margherita, funghi (mushroom), pepperoni, or prosciutto.
Here’s a post on Carnival’s official Instagram page, promoting the Pizza Anywhere service.
Now that beverage service has been added, guests can order a drink to go with their pizza. Available drinks include bottled water and sodas such as Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Coke and Diet Sprite, along with imported beers Blue Moon, Miller Lite and Peroni.
To order, guests must open the Carnival HUB app and tap their location on the ship. They also need to submit a selfie within the app so their waiter can identify them while bringing the food. According to Travel Weekly, delivery is available in “all but a handful” of public places on the ship.
In order to use the service, guests should download the Carnival HUB app before boarding the a cruise. However, the app adds other functionality to the trip by allowing guests to chat with your groups, view ship activities, look at menus, book shore excursions and check in for meals.
Like some pizza delivery services for landlubbers, Pizza Anywhere comes with a fee: $5 per delivery, plus a tip if desired. You can pay for it all in the app.
A cruise sounds great right about now, doesn’t it? This image from the @carnival Instagram definitely has us dreaming of eating pizza in exciting locations.
Do you think you would order pizza and beer for delivery if you were vacationing on a cruise ship? Or is having all your entertainment and dining within a short walk on board enough for you?
