In 2019, I had the opportunity to go on my first cruise. As a first-time cruiser, I had NO idea what to expect. When I was given the opportunity to travel on the Carnival Paradise, I couldn’t wait to go. Our sailing date was in late February, which just happened to fall over Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd. So I hopped at the chance to attend the Green Eggs and Ham Dr. Seuss breakfast. Today I am sharing why it can’t be missed!
This post was from a 2019 trip. Please be sure to check current travel advisories and the Carnival website for the most updated status on sailings.
I first heard about this breakfast from a seasoned cruise traveler that was in the group of ladies I was cruising with. Not knowing what to expect from cruise travel, I relied on the advice of others. When they asked if I wanted to attend, I said yes and I am so glad I did!
The first thing I have to say is this breakfast is something kids of all ages will love. And so will parents. It made a group of ladies feel like kids again.
What Is The Dr. Seuss Breakfast?
Pack your imagination, but don’t forget your appetite as the whole family embarks on a breakfast that’s part meal, and part journey into the deliciously whimsical world of Dr. Seuss®– This is how it is described on the website.
How Much Does The Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast Cost?
The Green Eggs and Ham breakfast is not included in the cost of your cruise. Pricing is as follows: Adults & children are both $6 each to attend the breakfast. I was surprised at how reasonable it was, especially after attending. The food & fun was so worth it!
Do I Need To Make Reservations For The Dr. Seuss Breakfast?
One bit of advice is to book as soon as you are checked into your stateroom. This is one of those events that fill up very quickly, and you don’t want to miss out!
So, the fun begins before you even step into the dining room! While you wait to enter, you can start things off with a photo op with Thing 1 & Thing 2. Well, YOU become Thing 1 & Thing 2, just make sure you try to behave! My cruise roommate and I had a blast taking our picture!
Let’s Talk About The Decorations For The Dr. Seuss Breakfast
So once the curtain is pulled back and they let you in, be ready to be amazed by the decorations! Fun & festive, they really get you in the spirit of Dr. Seuss. Each table is set up in a similar manner, and you can just FEEL all the fun!
I could not get over how much fun the decorations were. And my favorite thing was definitely the ice sculpture. Who would have thought you could do that on a cruise ship!
What’s To Eat During The Dr. Seuss Breakfast?
I have to tell you, there are so many amazing things to choose from on the menu for the Dr. Seuss breakfast. In fact, I really had a hard time choosing just one. In the end, all the ladies at our table ordered different things, and we ended up trying a little bit of everything.
I had the From There To Here, From Here To There, Funny Belgium Waffles are Everywhere. The perfect combination of waffles and berry fruits, and topped with whip cream. Who can resist them?
And, of course, I am going to finish out this section by sharing the signature dish of Green Eggs and Ham! It is like a book come to life and a treat for your tummy! And so much fun to look at, too. Will you eat them here or there? In a house? With a mouse? Wherever you decide, you definitely will not go wrong!
If you aren’t into all the fancy food selections, don’t worry. They have regular cereal and other breakfast choices available as well. So even if you have a picky eater, they will almost always find something to enjoy. Just look at ALL this amazing food!
Now For The Entertainment During The Dr. Seuss Breakfast
Once you have eaten your fill, the fun REALLY begins. The entertainment begins with a parade and singing. It is so much fun to see all your favorite Dr. Seuss characters come to life!
Once the parade is over, you get the chance to meet your favorite friends. Don’t forget to get your passport stamped to help remember all the fun you had.
And make sure you take the time to walk around and get some great photo opps!
I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed the Dr. Seuss breakfast. Even though my own kids weren’t there, it was quite heartwarming to see all the kiddos enjoying themselves. And while the cost of the breakfast was extra, you got a lot from the event. The memories will last a long time and your kids will be thanking you for it!
So now that you have seen what the Green Eggs and Ham Dr. Seuss breakfast is all about, will you be attending on your next cruise?
