Carnival Cruise Line's room service changes that had been announced for mid-January have been put on hold.

Brand ambassador and senior cruise director John Heald said in a Facebook posting on Sunday that "we are in the process of making some adjustments to that plan to balance the interests of our guests with our efforts to reduce food waste costs."

Heald said that for the time being there will be no changes "until we finalize a plan that will I will communicate to you all."

Carnival had been set to implement an a la carte all-day room service menu in which items cost $2 to $6 each, with the exception of continental breakfast. Currently that menu is only in effect from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
