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 knows what its cruisers want, and on select ships it offers 24/7 fresh, hot pies at Pizzeria del Capitano.
Pizzeria del Capitano is an ultra-casual 24-hour pizza counter located outside, aft, on the Lido Deck on select Carnival ships. It features a traditional pizzeria red-and-white theme with booths and tables so you can grab a pie and dine alfresco.
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 pizzas. 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 late afternoon and in the evening.
