Great report! Not sure if you are interested but we have this underwater camera, Canon PowerShot D10 12.1 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.5-inch LCD and it works great. Spouse is an avid photographer and often chooses the Canon PowerShot over his SLR camera even when he is not in a high moisture area.

You lost me after the D10 12.1, etc.. . . Seriously, I'm not sure we need anything like the Canon right now, but we'll keep your suggestion in mind. And, thanks for tuning in!

We are! That's what we keep telling people, but they don't always believe us! lol We feel as though we've won the relationship lottery and try never to take a day for granted. Truly, thank you for the kind comments, and keep tuning in for our review of Remy. . .it's coming. . .honestly. . . Here's a preview:

It was the best of time, it was the worst of times. . .wait! Oops, that's Dickens. Well, where the, ahem, dickens is my preview?!

Oh, and be watching for a pre-TR regarding our upcoming trip to WDW to begin shortly and authored by none other than luvvwl herself. I taught her everything.

I hope your TR goes a little more quickly than mine! lol In further news, I have written half the review of Remy and will be posting it later today, most likely late this afternoon, so stay tuned!

Remy, Part Un

Sun sinks, orange orb
Bathes white linens in our laps.
Glimmer in her eyes.

Once in a great while, you get an opportunity to enjoy a masterful meal. Sometimes that meal might be a rousingly successful attempt of a new recipe at home or perhaps a splendid meal at a friend’s house when you were dreading the green jell-o mold buffet. On rare occasion, at least for us, it means sitting down to a long, casually-paced meal of phenomenally prepared foods, a kaleidoscope of edible art. One of those moments was Remy. As you hopefully can tell by our pictures, we dressed nicely for the evening. As most know, Remy requires dress clothing which for men means a jacket is de rigeur. Personally, I enjoy dressing up when dining out at upscale establishments—perhaps it is a throwback to an often forgotten standard or era, or maybe donning dress attire makes me feel special to match the food, or it could be the clothes highlight my ruggedly dashing visage. Whatever the case, I do enjoy the adventure especially when accompanied by a stunningly beautiful woman (see picture). She has a supernova smile to match alluring olive eyes that vividly dance. It was going to be a grand evening.

As before, we arrived a few minutes early and were asked to wait in Meridian until the staff was ready for us. Unlike the previous night at Palo, we opted to not have a drink nor did we bring a special bottle of wine to open either as we had been undecided on whether to do the wine pairing. Given we had eaten so much food (and done our fair share of drinking), we thought it better (and cheaper!) to forego the pairing, as well as the pre-dinner drink. Within a few minutes, a lovely lass approached our table with a second, even younger woman about three steps behind her, and the head waiter was even peering around the corner. It makes you feel special to be wanted by so many! Seriously, they were all very gracious, and the first woman steered us through the short foyer at the entrance to Remy, or as I dubbed it, The Hall of Dreams. On display in the wall to the right to our right were tens of dozens of expensive wine bottles, a treasure trove of vino. I strolled slowly, literally dragging my feet my feet in order to absorb the enormity of the moment. Nirvana. Olympus. I was in the midst of greatness that dwarfed my relatively small (and definitely less expensive) collection of wines at home. A Galapagos turtle moves more quickly than I did. I finally glanced up where I caught the Arched Eyebrow of Death from LOMF. Picking up my pace to join her and the hostess, we were shown to a most excellent table right next to the window, and even more impressive was the view that started with my gorgeous date and extended to the sun beginning to sink into the blazing sea.

The attentiveness we received that evening started immediately as a server stepped up to the window and began to lower the louvered blinds before we had settled properly into our seats. We noticed the same activity at the tables right behind both luv and me (whereas, we prefer to sit together, this occasion dictated we sit across from the other which actually was perfect as it allowed me to gaze at luv more easily). One might wonder why they chose to wait until the patrons were seated before lowering the shades, but the reason is two-fold: a) we were allowed to absorb the whole of the ambience and scenery, and b) the blind then was adjusted specifically to each couple’s need. My napkin was unfolded and placed across my lap. The young hostess actually brought luv a different napkin—black to match her dress. Further, any time either of us got up for a trip to the restroom, we were met at our table by a server who removed the napkin from the chair, scooted in said chair, then replaced the napkin on our laps.

Our primary attendant for the evening was Jerry. Yeah, the name doesn’t seem to fit the restaurant, but he was a U.S. citizen by way of Canada or Ireland (what can I say—we don’t remember) and had a vaguely continental accent. He was pleasant and knowledgeable without being pretentious or patronizing. As a way to further welcome us to Remy, he said we would be treated with both a gratis cocktail and an amuse-bouche from the chef. We thought, “what a great idea!” The drink was Cosmopolitan of sorts with a hint of Framboise. The amuse-bouche was a tomato bisque contained in a light pastry-like crust which the server warned we should entirely place in our mouths—and close said mouths before biting down. The morsel was delightful and flavorful, but a woman at a nearby table either wasn’t listening or failed to heed the advice and in the process played bisque paintball with her blouse. Equally good was the aperitif which not only was tasty but complemented the bite as well.

As we reveled in the early experience, we heard a small thump, thump overhead. Thinking nothing of it, we continued our conversation (which with us never seems to drag) as we anticipated the rest of our meal. Clump, clump. We exchanged raised eyebrows. A small, bright yellow ball flew past the window and nestled between the bulkhead wall and the railing. Ahh, we exhaled simultaneously, the mini-golf course was directly overhead. Let me address the noise issue regarding Remy and the ill-placed golf course. There is no arguing that the location of this pint-sized mini-golf is laughable, and not in the ha-ha kind of way. . .more like derisive laughing. Given the upscale nature of both Palo and Remy, placing anything above those two restaurants that doesn’t involve champagne bubbles or goose down was a mistake. The designers must’ve had one too many appletinis at an office party one Christmas. That being said, the muffled thumps were quite infrequent and disappeared altogether once the darkness descended. Those noises had no significant impact our dining experience whatsoever other than providing us a chuckle and affording me the chance to pen another paragraph for this TR.

We were shown the menus and the extensive wine list, where we opted to get one glass of white and one glass of red. Though each glass was pricey, it was still much less expensive than the wine pairing though admittedly not as much fun. As we sat discussing our menu options, Jerry approached to see if we had any questions. The menu is divided into three categories: saveur (fresh), mer (sea), and terre (earth). We were having a difficult time deciding which plates to have since all of them seemed delectable. Jerry suggested we try them all. What a marvelous idea! With our indecision solved, we settled back into our seats, held hands across the table, and soaked up the relaxed ambience of the ocean, Remy, and each other’s company.

Next up: Remy, Part Deux

WooHoo you started your Remy experience It's funny we didn't hear any noise at all from the mini golf above. We also were seated at a window table. We dined at sunset until well beyond..but no noise. OK! waiting (tapping toe impatiently) for Part 2 your writing is so fun

What a FABULOUS TR! I've never read one before even though we've been on the Magic twice and the Wonder. We are going on the Dream Oct 28, 2012 and I was hoping someone put down a little something. What a treasure I've found in yours!

I agree with everyone else that you two sound fab and fun! Both are terrific authors!

Waiting (as patiently as I can - LOL) for Part Deux!

How could you not love him? Plus. We are a perfect match. I LOVE dressing for dinner and it seems to me such a lost art in society today. I mean, I do understand wanting to be comfortable, being on vacation, etc., but why not put a teeny, tiny bit of effort (okay, in my case maybe a wee bit more than that. After all, there’s which dress to wear, which shoes to go with, jewelry, hair, makeup…) and make it an event? Try it Mikey, you’ll like it!! Besides, are your Castaway Cay t-shirt and your flipflops REALLY appropriate attire for dining? They do call it BEACHWEAR for a reason! Uh oh, I sound like I’m 85 years old. Do I sound like I’m 85 years old???

Don’t we look pretty?

It was impressive. Even I paused a moment in awe. And maybe with a twinge of regret that I had decided not to do the wine flight, lolol!!!

The restaurant is gorgeous!! We have dined at Victoria and Alberts (waited on none other than Victoria herself, lolol) and while I loved that experience as well, it’s different from Remy in that the lighting is much darker (but to me Remy is no less intimate).





Notice the little Remy on the back of the chair? And this is the crystal Remy on the chandelier.

Babe, it was a champagne cocktail, lololol. Tattingers with muddled mint (I think), raspberries and a bit of pear flavored vodka. See?







Maybe it’s not me that’s 85 years old. Just sayin’…

As if you need any excuse for another paragraph.

Honestly, it didn’t ruin the meal. Really and truly. It was kind of amusing. But. I have no earthly clue what the ship designers were thinking. A basketball court above Palo and a putt putt above Remy????

OMG!! I sooooo needed a wheel barrel to get out of there!! But it was awesome! And for anyone even remotely on the fence about whether or not it’s worth the price, GO! You won’t be disappointed. Unless you’re one of the Castaway Cay tees at Dinner Club members. No offense intended to members of the Castaway Cay tees at Dinner Club.

Love this report! Oh how I miss the Dream...even though we were able to do NONE of the adult activities in which you speak of, it's nice to live vicariously through your words.

Also - am I the ONLY one who thinks you resemble "Bill Kelley"? You know the politician that wanted Carrie to pee on him in "Sex and the City"? AKA the actor John Slattery, but only as "Bill Kelley" because I had to google all this and you look nothing like his main wikipedia picture. You do/did watch SATC, right????? I loved this character, btw - he was very charming and funny (Hello - YOU!) and think it's a total compliment if you factor out the whole "peeing" incident. Anyway - if you didn't watch this show, I'm sure you're shaking and/or scratching your head now so here's the best I can do...

Remy

Love the before meal pics - the drink looks yyyuuummmyyyy.....

Hoping more pics will follow with Part Deux of the food...mmmmmm

Also, would you mind sharing the total cost of dinner? I'm trying to talk my DH into it and figure it would be easier to get him over the sticker shock now!

Thanks again for such a great TR!

It was a long time coming, huh? The noise was quite muffled and in no way disturbed our experience. Since luv had extensively studied the layout of the ship and since we had walked around the ship a lot during our four days, we knew the mini-golf was above us, but if there was any doubt, that flying yellow golf ball certainly gave it away! lol Anyhoo, part 2 is coming up this weekend. . .I hope. . .

You've been on three cruises and never read a TR?! Are you crazy?? (No, really. Are you? Huh?) Well, I'm certainly glad you chose our TR to start, though there are others out there worth a read, as well. I think some folks would find us dull and boring during the week as we both work, but we do so enjoy spending time together when we travel or make that spontaneous choice to go out to eat at a nice restaurant on a Wednesday night (and chuck our salad dinner plans out the window!). I promise we'll attempt to try to maybe possibly work on Part Deux this weekend, okay?

Ummm, I don't know how to break this to you gently. . .we're not much into taking pics of our meals at dinner. There. I said it. I confessed. We've been to V & A's, Remy, AP (a lot), Yachtsman, and many other places, and we've rarely taken pics of food. I guess once we settle down into a nice meal, we tend to leave the camera in luv's purse or my pocket. My sincere apologies; however, I know there are pics somewhere on this board (stickies?) where you can see the food. I will say every single dish is expertly rendered and lovingly created on a plate. Gorgeous food that is also delicious. As for the cost, it's $75 per person which makes it a great bargain compared to V & A's (yes, yes, to those contrarians who would argue the cost of Remy is part of the high cost of sailing on DCL. . .still, it's cheaper. So there). It is definitely worth the extra expense. The wine pairings cost a bit more at $99 per person, and while I'm sure it is worth it, we opted to forego that delight this time around and just have one glass of wine each, a red and a white which we shared over the course of the meal. Thanks for your truly kind words.
P.S. I'm the better author, right?

NONE of the adult activities? You're gonna remedy that the next time you cruise (whether on the Dream or not), right? Granted, we went sans children, so were able to do many of them to include the Moonlight Verandah Excursion. But, you owe it to yourselves to take in some of the fun things offered to grownups on a Disney cruise. No more living vicariously through anyone else's adventures. . .though I take it as a total compliment that you did ours.

I am familiar with John Slattery as he's been on several TV shows including ED (I loved that show) and movies (he played Tony Stark's father in IRONMAN 2). However, I never was much of a SATC fan, though I did watch it some during its very first year on HBO (or was it Showtime?) since I did fancy Kim Cattral. I spewed a bit of coffee when I read your peeing comment--it's just too darn funny. I can see it now as a way to introduce myself at parties: "Hey, I'm Sleepydog, and I'm charming and funny, AND I don't pee on people." Actually, I do see the resemblence to Slattery, though I long held out hope I looked more like Brad Pitt. Sigh. In truth, I think it's more likely I look like Steve Buscemi. . .or Pee Wee Herman. Anyway, I do take your kind comments as a total compliment, and I certainly appreciate your gracious words regarding the TR. It's not done yet, so stay tuned!
