Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse. Where Have You Been All My Life?

After my adventure with the macaws, iguanas, and getting up close and personal with an amazing monkey, it was time to head back to the ship and not only document the day for the Mayne Mafia but more importantly take a shower.

Tonight, I had the great privilege of being able to go to dinner at one of the specialty restaurant onboard the Carnival Breeze, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse. I had looked into the restaurant one night when I was still trying to navigate around the ship and it looks very nice. Super cozy and warm, reminding me of a old time ship dining room that may have been on the cruiseliners that we see in the movies.

After changing into something a little more fitting for dining at a nicer establishment (there is not real dress code but they do prefer what they call “cruising casual”, such as a collared shirt and slacks and dress or pant suit for the ladies. It is by no means formal but not shorts and T-shirt for sure.

I was seated at a beautiful table, with fancy linens and sparkling glassware. My waiter was awesome and I felt like I was a VIP or something, as the service was on point the whole night. Now, I have had some very good steaks, especially around Orlando and at the resorts at Walt Disney World, but I have to tell you, this steak was incredible. Perfectly cooked, plated perfectly (see, I did learn some things), with macaroni and cheese and the creamiest mashed potatoes ever on the side. Don’t judge me because I always get two starches either, they didn’t even bat an eye. To see my amazing dinner, go check it out on my Instagram story.

I really wanted dessert and I had seen from across the way this cheesecake that must have stook at least 2 feet high!! They also have this chocolate sampler, which is sort of like a super fancy flight of different mousses (mousse?) combinations. Although I am not a chocolate person, it certainly was beautiful. It all looked awesome but I was stuffed and could not have taken another bite.

Tea, coffee, water are included and you can purchase an adult beverage for an additional charge if you like and just charge it to your Sail and Sign card. Again, the service was spectacular, again dare I say, ‘Disney-esque’ and is absolutely worth the upcharge to have dinner here. Reservations are required and you can either book them through the steakhouse or call from your stateroom. You will not be disappointed. Below is the menu that I had just to give you an idea of what is offered.
