Cruising concierge on the Fantasy-FOOD PICS: PIRATE NIGHT @ AP! [updated 3/24]
 
hello everyone!!

i am doing a TRIP REPORT in the disney cruise section of the forum but i wanted to post some food pics. this will be the food-abridged version to my trip report. :rotfl:

we sailed in a one bedroom suite [concierge] on the disney fantasy. we were on the eastern caribbean itinerary with stops in st.thomas/st. john, san juan & castaway cay. the dates of our cruise were 1/26/13 - 2/2/13.

the wonderful barb posted some updates of our food and i am hoping to post some more.


here's a few from my DAY 1 update.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psf0b3d7c1.jpg
a perfect mimosa to start a perfect vacation in the concierge lounge during the meet & greet.


...so the mimosa went down very quickly and i ordered my second drink.

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps4a8fbda3.jpg
grey goose voda + soda water + lime = awesome.


we found a lovely fruit basket awaiting us on the dining room table.

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps00ad0c47.jpg
hooray, fresh fruit!!


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps8e4251c1.jpg
the bow even had the cruise logo on it. i loved it!



http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps1b555ab8.jpg
epic coffee machine!!

i wanted to try out the epic coffee machine. it's rumored to have cost $10,000 (or so the internet says) but nonetheless, it made outstanding cafe latte's and whatever your heart desires in a matter of seconds. the captain made frequent visits to the lounge just for coffee. i love that thing.



here are some of the afternoon offerings. the food at the lounge changes daily and the ever awesome KWAN was very helpful in the lounge. she was one of my favorite cast members on board. i'll post a picture of emme & kwan during the birthday post. but she was incredible.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps3910e5c3.jpg
assorted fruits, cheeses, shrimp & lettuce wraps & marinated mushrooms. YUM!


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps332a1129.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps12c96375.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pse38c5d61.jpg


so i headed back to my room to enjoy my afternoon snack while sitting on the balcony.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psf672213e.jpg
grey goose vodka + soda water + lime.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps8926c1eb.jpg
plate full of yummyness.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psc506987a.jpg
more delicious cheese.


up next, dinner @ animator's palate.

thanks for reading everyone & happy eating!!! :cloud9:

Thanks for posting! Glad to see a mixed drink! Yay! Love the food pics!

So is the plain coffee that comes out of there actually good and better than what you get from room service, the drink station, and in the dining rooms?

i didn't have coffee at any other place but in the concierge lounge but the coffee that i did drink from that machine was awesome. i tried cafe latte's, cappuccino, regular coffee, espresso, hot chocolate etc. alice (from concierge) says it's the best coffee on the ship. the captain gave the coffee two thumbs up!

i primarily only drank alcoholic drinks in the concierge lounge. we were offered two happy hours a day and they would grab you a drink whenever you asked. all these drink pictures are from the lounge. the lounge had all kinds of alcohol. it was fantastic!

i did order one stella artois as i was watching a movie in the buena vista theater.

DLFan123 02-09-2013 09:51 AM

I'm very excited about this! Can't wait to see and read more! :cheer2:

DINNER @ ANIMATOR'S PALATE



http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps4fba6cb5.jpg


our dining rotation was AERAERA & we had second seating which is 8:15. we arrived at about 8:10 & there was a line to get inside. our table number was 74. another perk of concierge is that your family gets to sit at their own table, which i thought was nice.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psd6c79fb5.jpg



animator's palate was located on the 3rd floor, aft. it was pretty rocky this night and i felt slightly queasy. upon entering the dining area, a cm hands every single person a hand sanitizing wipe. they did this before every dining opportunity minus when we had brunch at palo.

we were shown our table which was close to the large projection screens (they are all over the place) but directly in front of the area where the cm's place drinks, food etc. it was a really busy area but we didn't mind because we ate quickly this evening as the rocking of the boat was really getting to me. i wish i had taken a bonine earlier!

our servers were mr. o'neil from jamaica and his assistant was mr. ninja. (yes ninja). they were both very efficient and very nice. i don't know how they manage to serve all the tables & get the orders right but they did.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps19809143.jpg
loved the chair!


...now to the fun stuff.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psd8703f62.jpg
menu!


we ate at AP three times & each time there is a different menu for the night. on the 3rd night (which is the animation night), there is a picture of sorcerer mickey which moves.


every meal in the main dining rooms came with a bread service & a special spread in addition to butter & whipped butter.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps7686199c.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps765555b2.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps9a86a0e1.jpg
such a cute butter knife!
tip: you can buy these knives in the gift shops to take home with you.



and for our appetizers, we had:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps0def81c5.jpg
Black Truffle Pasta Pursettes - pasta purse filled with truffle scented cheese and coated with a delicate champagne sauce

this appetizer was recommended by our server. it was ok. it didn't blow me away or wow me. but out of the three that we ordered, it definitely was the best.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps0d45bbb7.jpg
Wild Mushroom Risotto and Porcini Twist - served with Parmigiano-Reggiano

this tasted as bad as it looks. it didn't look pretty & i found it to be pretty bland. i didn't get much mushroom flavor despite appearing as if there were a ton of mushrooms in this. overall, unappetizing.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psb353eddd.jpg
Sesame-flavored Rock Shrimp and Caramelized Onion Cheesecake - with Asian barbecue sauce and topped with micro greens

this item really intrigued me when i saw it on the menu. unfortunately, it did not deliver. it lacked flavor. a lot of the food on the ship was underseasoned and bland. the texture of the cheesecake reminded me of cold quiche. i didn't get much sesame flavor from it. i gave it three bites and was done with it.



so far, we were disappointed in the meal.


the lights dimmed during appetizer service & our friend crush appears!


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps3dac4d14.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psd5b517e9.jpg
emme had no idea what was going on!


crush was pretty cool as he would communicate with different people in the dining area. it really caught people off guard and one little guy ducked under the table as crush was talking to him. overall, great entertainment!


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps302b2ee8.jpg
emme was really amused by crush as were all the kids.



our entrees arrived pretty quickly.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps3b825ad3.jpg
the kids meal.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psa00bd728.jpg
Grilled Pacific Black Cod: With sautéed Morel Mushrooms on a Sweet Potato Purée

this was what my mom ordered. my mom loves seafood & wanted to try this. this fish was actually good but kind of dry. we always ordered a fish entree and for the most part, the fish was really fishy but on this night, this cod was tasty for the most part.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps149c55a5.jpg
Marinated Angus Beef Tenderloin carved to order on wasabi mashed potatoes with bok choy and a tamarind-barbecue reduction

this was my entree. the tenderloin was tender and the mashed potatoes didn't have much wasabi in it but was good. there wasn't much bok choy on the plate and i thought the carrots were cute. after the disappointing appetizers, AP redeemed itself with a tasty entree.


now to dessert (emme's favorite part of any meal).


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps2ffff0e2.jpg
Vanilla ice cream with mickey sprinkles

my daughter is pretty simple in her needs for dessert. vanilla ice cream & sprinkles is the perfect dessert for her. and she enjoyed every last bite of it! mr. o'neil was really accommodating when we ordered this. i was very thankful.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps031e92d4.jpg

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pse498ef52.jpg



i'm not much of a dessert fan but was very curious with this:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps470c1ece.jpg
No sugar added: Citrus Lemon Mousse With Mango Coulis

the mousse was more like a very airy & light cake. it wasn't overly sweet & i really enjoyed it. two thumbs up!


overall, our first meal in rotational dining was a good experience. the dining room was very very busy. i did request any kind of hot sauce (minus tobasco, texas pete etc) with our meals. they did not have sriracha on board but they did have sambal. with our other meals, they made sure we had a bowl of sambal at our table. it was very thoughtful.

the appetizers were somewhat disappointing but the entrees were good (minus the semi-dry cod). the atmosphere was great but the rocking of the boat made me queasy. our servers were amazing & we had a great experience.



after we left animator's palate, we ran into some friends.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps514d64a2.jpg

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pse3026ff0.jpg

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps8b8eb8f2.jpg
tiana & emme.


we have never met tiana at disney world. when she's out and about, the lines are tremendous & i just don't have the patience to wait. but tiana was out in the lobby atrium right as we were exiting dinner. perfect timing! she looked beautiful in her dress. out of all the character pictures we had taken, tiana took the most time with the children. it was very heart warming to see the faces of these little girls light up.



http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps534031ae.jpg
goofy!!

up next, day 2 & emme's big birthday!

emmebear 02-10-2013 04:21 PM

here's the food excerpt from my latest post updated today [2/10]



http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps97c6d23a.jpg
happy 3rd birthday emme!


after our morning character meets, we headed to cabanas to pick up some breakfast. emme wanted pancakes so off we went.

cabanas is a really nice area. there are two sides to cabanas. it is buffet style with self drink areas but cast members pick up empty plates and are very helpful. in addition to the buffet area, there is a fruit area [you have to let them know which fruit you want], ice cream scoop area, grilled meats area, salad & soup area as well as a "sandwich" area where they had things such as prosciutto, mortadella & buffalo mozzarella. on certain days, there was also sushi. there's also snow crab legs, mussels & shrimp too. all are cold (which kind of turned off my mom) but very fresh.

for breakfast, there is a made to order omelette station which also has egg whites available. there's also krispy kreme donuts as wells! i'm not going to lie, i did indulge a few.

i can say that cabanas can get chaotic when it comes to getting your food. there really is no line and no one to guide you where to start. you kind of just go for it. some people are nicer than others, some were rude but in the end, everyone got their food.

when we sat for lunch, i would scope out which side looked the least busy as both sides had the same food. i really enjoyed my lunch at cabanas. in fact, i preferred it over some of the food we had at the main rotational dining areas. some stand outs during lunch was malaysian fish stew, bbq short ribs, lamb curry with heavy indian spices just to name a few. these 3 things were my favorite items from cabanas and it was DELICIOUS.



i have pictures of all the stations at cabanas and will post them later (i took too many pictures and haven't sorted through all of them yet).


here are some pictures of the breakfast buffet:

assorted breads, pastries & danishes.

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psa90f0ecf.jpg
eggs of all types.


but for our "brunch", here's what we got:

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps70a12275.jpg

cabanas had different types of pancakes, toppings, in addition to sugar free syrup.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psa79594f9.jpg
the eggs benedict was quite good. the egg yolk oozed out perfectly. the hollandaise was decent. i think i ate an eggs benedict every day. what's better than an perfectly oozing yolk.

food excerpt from my latest post updated 2/11/13.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps8b23be31.jpg



after our princess meeting, we headed to cabanas for lunch. here's some of our plates:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps3f0acef1.jpg

i thought it was great to offer sushi as the fish was fresh but the rice was cold & hard. it kind of defeats the purpose of sushi to have cold & hard rice. i just ate the fish off the rice so it was more or less sashimi.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pse144cb50.jpg

emme's plate of black beans, roll, chicken fingers & penne pasta. god bless disney for the rice & beans as it was the main thing emme ate each day at cabanas. she's a pretty picky eater and i was so grateful they had some sort of rice dish for her.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psb8e503cf.jpg

this was one of my plates. the fish was snapper, the shrimp was cajun spiced and very tasty, the polenta cake was very delectable & the meat was over cooked. another winning lunch from cabanas!

DINNER @ ENCHANTED GARDEN: FORMAL NIGHT



enchanted garden is located on the second floor. it was a bit tricky to get there from our room 12(forward) so julia escorted us down to enchanted garden. while we were waiting for the dining room to open, we went to a shutters kiosk and browsed the pictures taken by cast members. it was a nice way to pass the time as we were 10 minutes early.


table 74 was literally the first table when you entered enchanted garden on the left side. this made it great to leave quickly when dinner was over and also gave us quick access to the bathroom. since we were one of the first tables to be sat, i got a nice picture of the dining area.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps37093df0.jpg
enchanted garden


i was really happy to have a table to ourselves! and i was also glad we had a booth instead of a table. it was very nice.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps2b584443.jpg
happy 3rd birthday emme!!


i brought along my external flash for my camera during this meal. my camera itself is heavy & cumbersome at times and with the flash, it gets really heavy & awkward during dinner.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps895f6ec2.jpg
these flower lights change colors & also opened & closed when the day turned to night. it was very neat!

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps04aca4bc.jpg
emme wanted a closer look.



after a few pictures and looking at the menu, we were ready to order.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps41ac4a94.jpg



there's always a bread service.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps6885a868.jpg
Multi-grain Loaf and Country Current Bread


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps0a902a9a.jpg
Chickpea-Garlic Purée



here are our appetizer choices that we shared between the two of us:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psf6b715ef.jpg
Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower With Crispy Noodles and Wasabi Dressing

i really wanted to like this as it was very pretty. there was just something a bit off with the combination. the tuna was fresh however.



next, we have:

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps38790724.jpg
North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli With roasted Garlic and sweet Basil scented Tomato Juice

minus the red color from the tomato juice, the ravioli was actually quite good! this was our favorite of the appetizer. we ordered another one to share.



lastly,


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps5c0fba54.jpg
Cucumber Garden Roll Filled with Julienne of Carrots, Bell Peppers and Zucchini, flavored with Cilantro and dressed with White Shoyu and Lemon Dressing

this appetizer was very crisp & refreshing. my mom enjoyed this very much. we ordered an additional roll to share.



entrees:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psbd55802f.jpg
Caramelized Sea Scallops With Roasted Asparagus, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Pearl Pasta, garnished with caramelized Leeks and Veal Jus Reduction

this entree was one of the worst on the trip. the scallops were very rubbery and very unappetizing. they also had a strange smell to them as well. the scallops were frozen so it's hard to get a nice sear on them. i was anticipating scallops like the ones i've had at california grill which were ridiculously delicious & this was far from it. the entree looked pretty but after 1/2 a scallop each & a few bites of everything else on the plate, we stopped eating from this plate. two thumbs down.


onwards to hoping for better...


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psef4c0449.jpg
Slow Roasted Prime Rib, Thyme-roasted Vegetables, Double-baked Potato, Horseradish, and Natural Jus

i asked for medium rare but this was more of a medium. the horseradish never made it onto my plate. however, the prime rib was juicy & not dry. the double baked potato was dry & definitely not worth the precious space in my belly. this was much better than the scallop dish and overall an OK entree.


and now, my favorite entree of the entire cruise.

*drumroll*


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pse19dde47.jpg
Pan Seared Sea Bass With Fava Beans and Pea Risotto and a sweet Chili Glaze

this entree was absolutely delicious. the sea bass was perfectly cooked & had no fishy smell or rubbery texture whatsoever (unlike some of the other fish we had on board). it was a very generous portion of fish as well. the fava bean & pea risotto was amazingly tasty. i absolutely loved everything about this risotto. not too thick & not too runny. it was perfectly seasoned as well. i didn't think the dish needed the sweet chili glaze and i ate around it as i felt it didn't add anything to the dish. in fact, it kind of threw my taste buds off.

my mom & i shared the entree & ordered a second. unfortunately, the second serving was a completely different story. the fish was pretty unappetizing, very flat and not cut properly. however, the risotto was still on point.



and here's emme's dinner:

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps0f4650c4.jpg
it's the same nuclear orange mac & cheese found in the theme parks. i love that macaroni & cheese!



after our entrees, our server, assistant server, manager (bhoola) and what seems to be a football team of servers came over with cupcakes for emme & then they sang happy birthday to emme. it was such a surprise! i was running out of space on my sd card so i only got bits & pieces of the singing.


here are the desserts they brought out (we did not order this, it came along with the singing).

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psb0048ccd.jpg

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps7e9dee50.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps35fcd673.jpg
emme loves her some cupcakes.



as emme was finishing up her cupcakes, enchanted garden was changing into night.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psae43b4ee.jpg



overall, the dinner at enchanted garden was a very fun experience. the place itself is so nice to look at. i wish i would have gotten up and walked around the place but i spent the majority of my time stuffing my face. priorities i guess! emme felt very special during the meal and the staff went out of their way to make sure she had a very special birthday.

the meal was much better than animator's palate the night before. despite being "formal night" some people arrived in very casual clothes....very casual meaning shorts & flip flops. it was a weird mix of people in tuxedos and full on ball gowns to others in sundresses, shorts & flip flops. to each their own i guess.



after dinner, we headed back to our room to find this:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psfcb4a257.jpg
LOBSTER! (i wish i ate more lobster on board). i think i'm going to devote an entire post on the very impressive towel origami btw.

our stateroom hosts did some incredible things with towels.

they also left this for emme.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps76cff42c.jpg
we pulled the curtain back & was absolutely surprised! emme could not believe it. she kept saying, "OH MY GOODNESS MOMMY!!


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps2e9bdd4d.jpg


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psc9036202.jpg
i have never seen a birthday cake made out of towels.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps31d4938f.jpg
the birthday girl & her birthday cake.



emme had a very spectacular birthday on board the fantasy. from the start of the day and until the very end we celebrated, disney style. we had such a great day & it as only day 2 of our trip! we finally called it a night a little past midnight. boy, was i exhausted & so was emme who was loudly snoring & taking up 95% of the bed.



up next, the morning after & the kids club!

emmebear 02-24-2013 12:00 PM

ROYAL COURT


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps9f0692c5.jpg


after a long day which included lots of time in the pool, i was pretty tired & spent. emme had a long nap and was ready to go. because i was so tired, i decided to take my point & shoot to dinner. i didn't have the energy to drag my dslr camera, so my point & shoot camera had the job of taking pictures tonight.


but first, we ran into some friends:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pscdbb8aba.jpg
phineas & ferb!



http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps832d8d7f.jpg


table 74 was again, very close to the entrance which gave us quick accessibility to the very important potty. i was pretty hungry & was excited for dinner.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps3da9eeda.jpg
emme getting her coloring on.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps7ffdd823.jpg
Warm Herb Brioche with an Olive Spread

the brioche bread was good & the olive spread was tasty.


here are the appetizers:

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps66e07830.jpg
Escargots Gratinés-Herb-marinated Snails with finely chopped Mushrooms, topped with Garlic Butter and Breadstick

i love love love me some escargots. these snails were delicious. i wish they were more garlicky...the more garlic, the better. we ordered a second one of these. i really enjoyed these very much.


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...pse246d45a.jpg


i also ordered Iced Lobster and Jumbo Shrimp White and Green Asparagus, Micro Greens, and Lemon-Dill dressing with Horseradish Cream but the picture was very blurry. the shrimp was ok. nothing special about it.


next...

http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psc57b9d05.jpg
Belle's French Onion Soup With Gruyère Cheese Crouton

has anyone had the french onion soup at "be our guest" at walt disney world? the french onion soup served there is a travesty. it's pretty terrible. i was hopeful that this french onion soup would be good.

this french soup was equally terrible. the cheese wasn't bubbly or ooey & gooey. the crouton was super soggy & the broth was very bland. it was very disappointing.



here is emme's dinner:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...psf0f12c61.jpg

the chicken was a little dry & the gravy saved it. emme ate only the mashed potatoes & got seconds. mr. o'neil also brought her some jasmine rice. he was very awesome.



our entrees:


http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps31379239.jpg
Pan seared Tofu, Roasted Zucchini, Eggplant and Red Peppers (Vegetarian)

this was a very good entree. they used sesame oil to sear the tofu & it really reminded me of how we make tofu at my house. at this point, i really missed korean food. my mom enjoyed this entree. it was very tasty.



http://i704.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps251d0977.jpg
Double Cut Rack of Lamb with a Dijon Crust
With fine Green Beans, Gratin Potatoes and Rosemary Jus


after the disappointing french onion soup, i was pretty hesitant about my lamb. the lamb was cooked beautifully but the meat was a bit tough. the rosemary jus was rich & delicious & really added a great depth of flavor to the lamb. the gratin potatoes were dry but the green beans were fresh & crunchy.



overall, this was the second best meal out of the 3 we've had at rotational dining. i still don't understand the french onion soup & why disney's french onion soup is so terrible. the tofu was delicious as were the escargots.

the restaurant itself is really beautiful. i have additional pictures i took with my dslr during our second visit to royal court & will be posting later in this trip report.

after dinner, we went straight to bed as we had an 8:15am excursion in beautiful st. john.

I don't think I could eat escargot!:scared:

That kids chicken actually looks good! haha. Where is your dessert pictures?? That is my favorite part!

If done properly, the snails are very tender and delicious. They are a great vessel for flavor. Yummy!!!

Moving this to the cruise board, as the Restaurant board is for discussion of restaurants located at the Walt Disney World resort.

Thanks for posting pictures of the concierge louge. I've always wondered what was offered. My husband and I just sailed on the Magic this past November, we really didn't care much for the food offered in the dining room. However the food in the buffet was really good, we ate there often.
