Hi all

We are hoping to book dinner at Palo's on our cruise in May. If we can't get a reservation for dinner then we will try either high-tea or brunch. Which do you think is nicest? We both really hate seafood - is the brunch based around that?

And most importantly - any pictures to get me drooling?!!

Thanks in advance for your help!:thumbsup2

Brunch is much better than high tea. Lots of tasty savory foods along with desserts versus sandwiches and desserts with tea.

We did the Brunch the 1st day on board (just the two of us). We loved it sooo much, we brought out friends back with us on the 2nd day! It's really not to be missed! You'll get the combination of cold items on the buffet (shrimp, crablegs, etc.) and hot menu items, a la carte! Loved it.........Enjoy!

I did tea and thought it was really naf,really,really naff, so did my table mates. Rolls, rolls!!! no little sannys, dried up scones,cakes were ok but the same cakes were on offer around the ship, the veggie sanys were the same that was available by the pool. I cant say how dissapointed we were in it.

But remember that is only my opinion, it is not expensive so you might want to give it a go.But I am not fussy about food and still thought it was naff.

Just remember, if you can only get reservation for one online, you can always try to reserve the other after boarding!

I agree with you entirely! I felt that the High Tea was pointless, rushed and just not nice. The scones weren't even warm! Better off going to the Garden View Lounge at the Grand Floridian for High Tea. At least there its fresh and you can take as long as you like. When we went on the boat my sister had her plate taken off her while she still had cake in her hand. We were all so shocked we didn't say anything but I wish we had now!

Brunch personally I didnt like much because the food wasn't to my taste but I loved the feel of it and the desserts were great!

High Tea $5 per person
Brunch/Dinner $15 per person

We enjoy Brunch. Judging from our upcoming Eastern brunch is leading the pack. All slots for brunch are filled online (sure they will have openings at port). High Tea and dinner both have a bunch of slots left open at the 59 day mark.

Why on earth would you expect to be served these at Palo?

I have a few pics of Palo Brunch at this link...I think they are page 3. We just cruised the Eastern on 1/17/09 and we had brunch on Sunday @ 10:30 am.

I had made no ressies before we left and got to the port around 10:15 or so and received boarding #2 and we got onboard and went straight to Rockin Bar D and it was empty!! We were first on line and booked our brunch.

Okay, I know Palo is a high class place. I have read on the sample menus, etc that it says "one choice of."

Is it considered rude to ask for maybe more than one entree? Or a little of this and a little of that. I kinda want to try a couple of different "made to order" things, and I would hate to come across as difficult.

I wanted to try a couple different things but knew I couldn't eat 2 entrees on top of appetizers, etc., so our waitress suggested half orders. :thumbsup2
