The second-half of this Double-Disney Vacation was another sailing on the Disney Dream, my third so far! I love Disney Cruise Line's Dream Class ships (I've also sailed once on the Disney Fantasy) and I jumped at the chance to sail again once I had some time off from work!
Do you want to take a cruise now?
That's right folks! It is time for another cruise on the Disney Dream!
I truly love this chandelier!
The Cove Cafe serves these AMAZING pineapple tartlets. I had something close to ten of them on this sailing.
We've got dinner reservations for Palo!
our stateroom for the sailing complete with some awesome gifts!
I'm happy to be here again!
The sailing away party is always a great kickoff for the sailing...
The view from our stateroom's verandah...
Our first dinner of the sailing, and my favorite of the three rotational dining venues onboard the ship!
The venue really is gorgeous!
So much detail!
Lobster Ravioli for the win!
The Avocado Tuna Tower is my favorite appetizer in any of the ship's three rotational dining venues.
Had to order the Sea Bass again. Once again, this fish did not disappoint!
These palate cleanser pre-dessert cubes are fantastic! The orange ones are like Jungle Juice (Animal Kingdom Lodge's signature drink) candy!
I always recommend going with the appetizer trio in the menu if you have the chance!
Per our server's recommendation, we tried the Date Cake. It was AMAZING!
Our first towel animal of the sailing!
We spent our day at the port of Nassau enjoying the ship and concluded with dinner at Palo, the ship's additional-charge Italian dining venue.
My favorite design element of Palo is the inclusion of this gorgeous Chihuly piece.
The meal starts off with unlimited antipasti...
We shared the Lobster Ravioli (I'll order seafood whenever and wherever I can if given the chance).
One of my favorite Disney food items ever is Palo's polenta-stuffed portobello mushroom. This thing is heavenly and indulgent and I dream about it consistently!
A new test was going on during our meal in which an established violinist actually roams the restaurant, adding beautiful music to the atmosphere of the venue. I seriously hope this becomes a permanent addition to the Palo experience!
Our table at Palo provided a fantastic view of Atlantis as we sailed away from Nassau!
Our first entree was the rack of lamb, a solid start for sure.
Next up was the handmade gnocchi in a light Alfredo sauce. These were fluffy and light to eat, but a super-filling dish despite the consistency. We both loved them!
Palo's signature tenderloin is always a must, no matter how many times you've dined there.
But the real surprise came in the form of the stuffed chicken. It was easily the best preparation of chicken either of us had ever had with the meat being perfectly cooked and still moist, the breaking-based stuffing had a great flavor to it and the red wine sauce it was served with was decadent.
The chocolate soufflé is also a must at Palo. You can see the warm vanilla and chocolate sauces being poured into it here.
They even made this special plate up for my girlfriend's birthday!
This frozen calvados shot is seriously masterful. I need to make these at home.
The best logo on the ship!
Disney Cruise Line hosts midnight "PremEars" onboard the ship's when new Marvel, Disney and Pixar (eventually Lucasfilm too) films come out on land.
I seriously LOVED this film. I saw it twice on the ship, and once more on land.
Nothing makes me smile more than seeing Tim Curry onboard the ship.
The AquaDuck is so photogenic at night!
This ship is beautiful.
Disney Cruise Line hosts Pirates in the Caribbean, an evening full of Pirate fun that begins at sundown and runs thru the end of the night.
As you can see, it gets to be pretty popular.
Jolly Roger is your host for the evening!
The Buccaneer Blast show featuring Captain Jack Sparrow is an enjoyable jaunt into his typical antics...
The show actually kicks off the fireworks.
After the fireworks, guests have access to a Pirate Buffet filled with savory items and sweet desserts.
And there are plenty of turkey legs to be had.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
Enjoyed seeing the rest of your trip! I've never been on a Disney cruise (hoping to remedy that soon!) but I have a question: does the cruise feel like it's too short, being that it's only 3 nights? There's so much to do and it seems like you'd need at least another day to soak it in. Or maybe that's part of their marketing plan - to leave people wanting more and then they book another cruise? Either way it looks great!
Wow I'm almost 100% positive we were on the same cruise . We take a lot of Disney cruises, and this summer was especially cruise-heavy, so I'm hazy on dates and don't have the documents right in front of me at the moment, but we had the Guardians premiere and the heavy storm upon leaving Castaway so I think it's safe to say we were on the same boat. Crazy how that stuff works!
Anyway, glad you had a good time, thanks for the pics.
