When it comes to popular foods, pizza remains a perennial favorite the world over. No matter your age, you're never too old for a slice, whether you give it the Brooklyn fold or use a knife and fork.
Carnival Cruise Line knows what its cruisers want, and on select ships it offers 24/7 fresh, hot pizza pies at Pizzeria del Capitano. Carnival Cruise pizza is a well-loved culinary treat available onboard its famous cruise ships that offer entertainment and family fun for all ages.
Pizzeria del Capitano, which means Captain Pizzeria, is an ultra-casual 24-hour pizza counter located outside, aft, on the Lido Deck on select Carnival ships.
Pizzeria del Capitano features a traditional red-and-white pizzeria theme with booths and tables so you can grab a pie and dine alfresco. While the ambiance of the eatery is classy, there’s no dress code. Enjoy Carnival pizza in your shorts and tank top, or grab a slice while you’re still in formal dinner wear.
Sometimes pizza is the perfect food to treat whatever ails you. That’s why Pizzeria del Capitano offers a casual, laid-back vibe so you can enjoy your favorite pizza slices in peace.
Pizzeria del Capitano offers hand-tossed thin-crust pies in five options: Margherita, Funghi (mushroom), Pepperoni, Quattro Formaggi (four cheese) and Prosciutto.
Made fresh, these pizzas are served directly from the pizzeria's kitchen. (You can also request a gluten-free pie any time of day, but be prepared for a longer wait.)
Fresh-grated Parmesan cheese and pepper flakes are available for anyone who'd like to enhance their pizza's flavor. In addition, the pizzeria offers Caesar salad upon request.
The handmade pizzas are approximately 12 inches in diameter, or the size of a dinner plate, with four slices per pizza. More often than not, people order an entire pizza, which can -- and often does -- lead to lines and long wait times at the counter. This is particularly true at lunchtime, in the late afternoon and in the evening.
