    Dining-wise, there will be multiple eateries onboard Carnival Adventure. Dining is where and when you like: “Your Choice Dining” at two main dining options, the formal Waterfront Restaurant (and dress up for the occasional formal dinner), and the casual Pantry with its contemporary cafe vibe and multiple serving stations. Designed as an international food market, The Pantry will have around nine cuisine selections, perhaps in the evening being Shell & Bones seafood.

There are six types of cabin types onboard and 35 price categories: insides, outsides (some obstructed), balcony cabins, outside mini-suites (with and without balconies) and balcony suites. Cabins will be roomy and nicely appointed, with satellite TV access to major channels. Standard cabins are practical and attractive, many have additional upper berths for children, and some have inter-connecting doors. The larger the stateroom, the more additional facilities. All cabins are spacious with wardrobes, en-suites, and twin beds mostly convertible to queen size.

Facilities include a flat-screen TV, fridge, personal safe, and an interactive video system. Outside cabins have a large window or porthole in the case of a few. Interconnecting cabins for families and groups allow quad-quad, twin-quad, triple-triple, and twin-twin bedding. There are 560 balcony rooms and 230 suites and mini-suites. Four types of suites are available, including two family suites, each of which can sleep up to 10 people if four are children otherwise eight adults.
