What ships have the Pasta Bar?
The Carnival Dream, Carnival Breeze, Carnival Magic, Carnival Vista, Carnival Horizon, Carnival Panorama, Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Sunrise have the pasta bar. Unfortunately, not all ships have the pasta bar. This feature is expected to be on the Carnival Radiance (transformed Carnival Victory) and Mardi Gras when these ships debut.
Is the Pasta Bar the same as Cucina Del Capitano?
On all of the ships that have the pasta bar (except for the Carnival Dream) the pasta bar is located in Cucina Del Capitano's space at lunch. At lunch, the Cucina Del Capitano space is used for the complimentary pasta bar. Cucina Del Capitano serves a variety of Italian dishes to guests at dinner for a fee (it is s a specialty dining venue). Some people have confused the pasta bar and Cucina Del Capitano in the past. Keep in mind the pasta bar is only open at lunch and is complimentary. Cucina Del Capitano is only open at dinner and is not complimentary. If you are confused about what is free or not, ask a crew member before ordering (just to be safe).

General Tips For Filling Out The Order Form:
1. Do not forget to write your name on the form. This helps the crew members keep track of who each order belongs to.
2. If you want extra of something or very little of an item, feel free to write a little note by the item on the form. Since this food option is very custom, the bowls are put together as each order is placed. It should not slow down the process to put a little or extra of an item in a bowl for a guest.
Is this venue open daily on the cruise?
On typical cruises, the pasta bar is open each day at lunch of the cruise (including port of call days). You can check the Pasta Bar's hours in the Carnival Fun-Times newslettter or on the Carnival Hub App's dining section.
Can I get my food to go from the Pasta Bar?
Although you cannot order your food to go, once you have it you are able to take it with you. Some people prefer to get their food and eat it outside or in the main buffet.
Is pizza served at the Pasta Bar?
Although the Pasta Bar has an italian theme, pizza is not a part of the Pasta Bar concept. All Carnival ships have a pizzeria open 24 hours that is complimentary. Look for your ship's pizzeria on the Lido Deck if you are hungry for pizza.
