We just got off the Magic yesterday from our best vacation yet. I had contacted the ship back in March to let them in on my plans to propose to me girlfriend the first night of our cruise while dining at Palo. With the help of our incredible server (Annie Marie), they made up a fake, smaller, menu to put inside the Palo menu which had my vows inside it. When she was done reading, I held out the ring, asked her to marry me... She said YES! and has not stopped looking down at it since (which makes it all so worth it to me). Its the little things that Disney does and Palo as well that make these trips so worth the price. :)

What a wonderful way to start a lifetime of memories together!! You need to have that Palo's menu framed as a gift for y'all at the wedding!! Of course with your vows in it! :)

Long life and love!

Though a DCL wedding would be a blast, we are looking for a church wedding. We've been fortunate enough to have now been on two Disney Cruises (and another cruise with another line in between them) in the last couple of years. We're thinking maybe a honeymoon in Aruba.

PS - Yes, Annie Marie is the best. She helped out a lot with the surprise and sincerely seemed to be so excited for us both. We also had her for our Palo brunch a couple of days later. I know there are a few threads asking about the tipping at Palo, and I can say that we tipped her an additional $30 on top of the $30 that you have to pay for the dinner since she was so helpful.

Hey everyone!

Just an update...

After nearly a year and a half of a wonderful engagement (I'm a lucky guy to be marrying such a beautiful person) we will be getting married this June!! Honeymoon will be in Punta Cana and then Cape Cod for a week. But... I have now just booked a 4 night cruise on the Dream on what will be our one year wedding anniversary next year! Already excited even with it being so far away.

Thank you all for your kind words and congratulatory words of encouragement!!

We loved the idea of a destination wedding but we both have such large families back home and we wanted everyone to be there to party. She's done so much of the planning and I've gone alon for the ride : ). I was in charge of honeymoon planning though which I got carried away on a little, but hey, we only have one honeymoon and we'll always remember.

Good News and Bad News.


Anne Marie is now on the Dream. Still working for Palo.
She is now a Hostess
But she will hook you up with a great server. If she has not left DCL, by then.
