What is Fahrenheit 555 on Carnival cruises?

Fahrenheit 555 is the name of the steakhouse found on most of Carnival Cruise Line’s ships. It’s an extra-fee restaurant for which reservations are recommended, and it’s open only for dinner. Carnival ships without Fahrenheit 555 usually have a different steakhouse that offers the same menu, even if it has another name.

Although the atmosphere is upscale, the steakhouse’s dress code is listed as casual, so you’re likely to see a mix of people who are dressed up and others who dine in jeans and T-shirts.

Decor varies by ship, but it usually features neutrals offset by jewel-toned pops of color, and the space tends to be dimly lit, evoking an air of fine dining.

Fahrenheit 555 menu


The Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse menu is divided into four sections: starters, entrees, sides and desserts.

Starters might include smoked oysters, stuffed mushrooms, beef carpaccio, jumbo shrimp cocktail, crab and mushroom risotto, lobster bisque, baked onion soup and a selection of salads.

For mains, choose from New York strip loin, prime ribeye, filet mignon, surf and turf, grilled lamb chops, roasted chicken, lobster tail, Chilean sea bass and more. If you’d like sauce with your entree, you can pick from mustard, barbecue, bearnaise, red wine and chimichurri varieties.

Pair your main with up to two sides that include baked potatoes, sauteed mushrooms, buttered broccoli, mashed potatoes, onion rings, macaroni and cheese and french fries.
