Combining from my June and September 2019 cruises!
Palo is a specialty restaurant serving brunch on sea days, and nightly dinners for guests ages 18 and older only. You must have reservations to dine here, and those can be made online during your check-in process for the cruise itself. I’m not going to lie…these reservations sell out quickly and are hard to get! But are TOTALLY worth it! (If you cannot make a reservation online, upon embarking, you can head directly to Palo and try to make reservations then. I’ve done this twice successfully.). There is a dress code, as this is more upscale than the main dining rooms. Be sure to check that when you are packing for the cruise!
Included are mimosas or a glass of champagne.
After being led to our table, the waiter explained the dining process. There is a menu to order from, as well as a “buffet” style set up. The meal is slowwwwww. You are not rushed and can spend as much time as you need.
Here’s my first plate from the buffet section:
The cinnamon roll was SO GOOD! Warm and gooey. And the parmesan cheese…I couldn’t get enough of it!
The first table…filled with delicious fruit, breads and pastries. The almond croissant was one of my favorites!
The next table was full of seafood offerings, caviar, vegetables, and more!
The third table had a variety of cheeses, olives, meats, etc.
You may make as many trips up to these tables as you wish!
Here is the menu we ordered from for made to order items:
Heirloom Tomato and Basil Soup:
Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breast: This is my favorite food on any of the Disney Cruise ships! It’s SO GOOD! And the Risotto is perfect with this. This is 80% why I schedule this brunch on every cruise.
Roasted Red Snapper Filet:
Lasagna Bolognaise: I also was able to taste this. It was good but I feel like since we were one of the last tables for the day, it was sitting for awhile maybe?? It’s a good shareable option though!
The dessert table:
I love that the portions are small so we can try a bunch of different things!
Our waiter also brought us several of these lava cakes to share. They were good but we were SO FULL!
(Apparently I have my favorites!)
It was my niece’s graduation celebration on this cruise and they brought here this:
If I didn’t comment on the food, that means it was someone else’s but I just took a picture to share!
This is hands down one of my favorite parts of the cruise! It’s $40 per person, and that is charged to your stateroom account. I highly suggest trying it at least once!
